Garry Newman as a notable person[edit]

Garry Newman does not have a wikipedia article, but it is Redirect with possibilities. His video game, Garry's Mod has sold over 10 million copies, and his game Rust has sold over 4 million. Both video games are credited to his company Facepunch Studios, but Garry's Mod was developed by Garry himself. Meiloorun (talk) 🍁 18:43, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

The first thing is, you didn't link Garry Newman but left it as black text. That's a strong hint at non-notability. The second thing is, having visited Garry Newman, I find no mention of Bloxwich at all - either with or without sources. Failing just one of these means that he does not meet the inclusion criteria at WP:LISTPEOPLE. See also MOS:LIST#Adding individual items to a list.
So you should expand that redirect into an article which satisfies WP:BLP and also explicitly states that he lives in Bloxwich with reliable sources that verify it; only then may he be re-added. Until then, the entry does not belong in list. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:40, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
I'll be sure to work on the Garry Newman article. Meanwhile, I did find a twitter post from Newman saying he lives in Bloxwich. Meiloorun (talk) 🍁 21:35, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
Tweets are not reliable sources. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:05, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
