Prominent natives[edit]

I don't think that little towns should only list prominent natives who qualify for their own bios on Wikipedia. This is much too high a bar. We're not listing the who's who of Chicago here, or Vegas, or even Logan. Why would any traditional encyclopedia have an entry about Richfield, anyway? Podunk places deserve some podunk achievers listed. I have added Bob Tobler, possibly the best athlete from Richfield, and Maughn Pearson and others of his commercially outstanding family also come to mind. Someone who knows a few details of their achievements is invited to add one or more of the Pearsons. --Alan Rasmussen formerly of Richfield. PS Another indication of the "level" of this article is that no other comment appears on the talk page. If we're going to write about Richfield, let's write about Richfield. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.200.80.4 (talk) 19:42, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

You're arguing against an established consensus; see WP:NLIST. That's fine, but if you want to change people's minds, the Richfield talk page isn't the place to try. Ntsimp (talk) 21:23, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Aaaaand I just removed Tobler. How is someone who finished second place in a race fifty years ago notable? I seriously thought it was a joke. And as for your main point, I watch a lot of these "podunk" town articles and they can quickly get out of control if natives without their own articles are added. It's a simple rule that keeps things clean. GreenGlass(talk) 06:39, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
