Possible to organize by date created?[edit]

It would certainly make blp prodding them easier. Throwaway85 (talk) 11:12, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Catscan will do that for you. Hut 8.5 14:28, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Do external links count as references?[edit]

If a BLP article contains no references cited in text, but does contain one or more external links, do those external links count as references? What if they are purely self-referential such as the person's own web page? This is the reason I ask; I had tagged it as unreferenced but someone else said they thought the external links counted as references. I went ahead and AfD'ed that article since it seemed to be a gray area. But I am left wondering, do we have a policy on exactly what constitutes an unreferenced BLP? Thanks for any info. --MelanieN (talk) 03:12, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

On the plus side, this is a backlog we can absolutely get rid of.[edit]

Since the introduction of BLP PRODs, we can make this category empty! Grognard 123chess456 (talk) 20:35, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
