I object to this deletion. I cannot even contact Matthew Vernon, who is proposing the deletion. There has been no group discussion on the matter. Follett is a nationally known author, whose stature as one of the most lent authors in the UK is clearly stated in the article. The proposal to delete is therefore perverse in the extreme, if not actually proven as vexatious - which I would argue it actually is. I do not know who the article's author is but any deletion should be put to a consensual agreement, not by diktat with such a short time limit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jatrius (talk • contribs) 15:33, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
The lending status is currently unsourced, making it a bit hard to rely on... Ewx (talk) 07:50, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
I can't find any source for that "most lent authors"claim. Further, considering the criteria for "creative professionals":
Regarded as an important figure or widely cited - doesn't apply
Originating a significant new concept, theory or technique - doesn't apply
created...a significant or well-known work...which has been the subject of an independent book or feature-length film, or multiple independent periodical articles - I can see no sign of this being the case
their work has become a) a significant monument b) been a substantial part of a significant exhibition c) has won significant critical attention d) is represented within the permanent collections of several notable galleris of museums, or had works in many significant libraries - ditto
So it seems to me that Follet meets none of the relevant criteria. MatthewVernon (talk) 10:34, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
