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)
Citizenship, infobox discussion
In case you are interested there is a discussion at: Template_talk:Infobox_person#Citizenship
Any particular reason the Portal:Biography has to have a picture of slavery ("Pyrates" image). How about an example picture that doesn't needlessly depict human bondage? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:52, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
Languages of Subjects of Biographies
In many biographies, it would be very useful to list the languages which the subject knew in order to help readers appreciate the cultures to which he/she had direct access and made direct contributions to. This is especially true of internationally active public figures, thinkers, and scholars. POR613 (talk) 18:51, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
Please re-evaluate article rating?
Team, I recently significantly expanded the article from FRED FRANKHOUSE from 3 uncited lines to what it is currently. I'm asking that the article be reevaluated for class rating, and for suggestions as to what I can do to improve the article. Thanks. --JGHSMC (talk) 04:38, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

- Not done as you are in the wrong place, since this page is only to discuss improvements to Portal:Biography .
This is not the place to post suggested articles; please try articles for creation - however, you will need to show there has been significant coverage, in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. - Arjayay (talk) 19:21, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
