Adding citations[edit]

After an editor started deleting names that don't yet have articles (names that were originally taken from the Danish Wikipedia), I've been adding citations to the names that don't have them, along with birth/death year information. It takes a while to put these together, but rather than simply edit war to get names back in, I've been trying to be constructive here, so don't revert back while I'm working on this, please. Citations are needed when information is disputed. If anyone has a reason to believe that certain names don't belong here, please point out why. I'm reverting once more, putting the article into a shape that I can more easily work with. If there's some pressing reason why the redlinked names need to go now, that should be explained before reverting during my ongoing work. -- JohnWBarber (talk) 14:29, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

The Danish Arts Agency / Literature Centre website, on this page [stage=8&tx_lfforfatter_pi2[uid]=115&tx_lfforfatter_pi2[lang]=_eng], calls this "Litteraturpriser" website [1] An alphabetical guide to Danish writers who have received literary recognition, or whose biographies have appeared in literary reference books. Details include first books published, literature and links concerning the writer, and biographical writing in book form. This seems to pretty much define notability for Wikipedia purposes by showing which authors are prize-winners and have sources that also confirm notability. -- JohnWBarber (talk) 23:45, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
