Hey WikiTreers-time for another round of Notable Knockouts!
In an effort to improve our Notables profiles, we're starting up a weekly challenge called "Notable Knockouts".
Each Thursday we'll post two Notables profiles that are in need of some major TLC.
To be considered a knockout the profile has to:
- Have a detailed biography with in line citations (a bio that isn't copied from somewhere else).
- Have quality sources from somewhere other than just Wikipedia.
- Have at least one image.
- Be connected to the Global Tree.
Bonus improvements, if you want to go above and beyond, could include things like:
- Editing the person's Wikipedia profile to include links to their WikiTree profile.
- Add WikiTree ID to WikiData
- Adding relevant categories and/or templates.
- Adding to their family connections.
Once a profile reaches Knockout status, we have a nifty Notable Knockouts template we can add to the comments section.
The Challenge: We want to make this fun so we thought we'd try having teams. Each profile is posted as an answer below. If you want to work on Team Best Actor Drama, post under that answer. If you want to work on Team Best Actress Drama, post under that answer. Each "team" can communicate there about who is working on what part of the profile. Yay, collaboration!
Team members that work on the profile that reaches Knockout status first will get a fun template in the comments section of their profiles.
Last week's contenders were Yogi Berra and Ty Cobb, Ty Cobb was a grand slam! Yogi's still looking to be connected to the Global Tree. We'll include him in a future Knockout.
This week is a Golden Globe Special Edition: Best Actor Nominees vs Best Actress Nominees in a Motion Picture Drama! All the profiles in a team have to meet the criteria for there to be a Knockout. Some are in pretty good shape, others need a lot of love.
