Hi Allen,

You can find out more about the notables project here: There will also be a list of Qualifications for profiles. If you have any questions you can feel free to contact a leader of the project or make a good judgement. yes When looking for projects you can hit the Find button and hit Projects. However some projects are sub-projects of others so it may take some searching for you to find one of your specific interest.

This profile qualifies as notable, since he has a wikipedia page. I took the liberty of adding his profile to the project.

All of the following reasons count for a profile being considered notable. From the notables project page:

None of these sites count as primary sources, and should all be listed under "See also:" on the profile of anybody who has an entry in any of them.

  • Wikipedia: Having a Wikipedia entry automatically qualifies somebody as being Notable, although lacking a Wikipedia entry does not automatically mean that they are not notable, as they may still be listed in some other resource. In particular, WikiMedia is a good source for public domain photos of notables.
  • Dictionary of National Biography: Having an entry in the Dictionary of National Biography also qualifies somebody as being Notable.
  • A Naval Biographical Dictionary: Published in 1849, it includes every living officer in the Royal Navy from Lieutenant to Admiral of the Fleet who was alive at the time of compilation.
  • an ongoing project to list and connect everybody in the British Peerage.
