It is requested that a photograph or picture of this person be included in this article to improve its quality.
Note: Wikipedia's non-free content use policy almost never permits the use of non-free images (such as promotional photos, press photos, screenshots, book covers and similar) to merely show what a living person looks like. Efforts should be made to take a free licensed photo (for example, during a public appearance), or obtaining a free content release of an existing photo instead. The Free Image Search Tool may be able to locate suitable images on Flickr and other web sites.

{{notable}}[edit]

This tag simply means the article isn't up to Wikipedia standards regarding showing the subject's notability. To do so it needs to have some better citations to reliable sources. Things like write ups in regional and national press do a lot towards this end. Katr67 18:31, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I know that the article has been updated with lots of third party references to support the idea that Jahn meets the notability requirement. However, the result is that the article now reads like the blurbs on the back of the book (or on a movie poster) instead of having the writing of an encyclopedic article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.131.177.119 (talk) 23:30, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
With all due respect:
Thank you for your suggestion. When you feel an article needs improvement, please feel free to make those changes. Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone can edit almost any article by simply following the Edit this page link at the top. The Wikipedia community encourages you to be bold in updating pages. Don't worry too much about making honest mistakes — they're likely to be found and corrected quickly. If you're not sure how editing works, check out how to edit a page, or use the sandbox to try out your editing skills. New contributors are always welcome. You don't even need to log in (although there are many reasons why you might want to). Katr67 03:17, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
