Collapsing own notes. Format has changed, this is no longer feasible. Sven ManguardWha? 03:32, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Because the main issue here is that the portal is short on content, I'm going to throw down some names for inclusion - partly in the hope that other people will join in and partly so that I remember them when I work on rebuilding the portal. Please join in with ideas, and mind the format that I'm using (as it allows me to make sure that there's some semblance of balance in country of origin, time period, field, etc.).
Living people need to have their prompts updated when they die, and prompts may otherwise need changing.

Reminder: Biographies under General Sanctions
Per "Current areas of conflict" section which links to all the various active Arbitrations, we are reminded that a past Arbitration imposed Discretionary Sanctions - enforceable by an Administrator - on Articles with biographical content relating to living or recently deceased people, and edits relating to the subject (living or recently deceased) of such biographical articles.
When having problems with BLPs that you have to bring to Biographies noticeboard or Administrators Noticeboard it is important to link to that section of the Discretionary sanctions page so that Administrators will not be so reluctant to enforce sanctions against editors who egregiously or chronically violate WP:BLP policy. Is there somewhere on the main page where we can mention both dispute resolution and the Discretionary Sanctions link? Thanks. Carolmooredc (Talkie-Talkie) 14:32, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
