Why?[edit]

I'd reconsider these too-broad lists... It looks like this list - involving HUGE numbers of Anglicans - was started, worked on for a little while, and then abandoned. Obviously this list will never come close to even being 50% complete, so I ask: what is the point of even having this list when we have a catagory already? -- SECisek 09:50, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

What?[edit]

I just found this page and am unclear about the criteria. Is it only lay persons? No, the first name is Joseph Abbott (clergyman). But I notice Samuel Seabury isn't on it. He was a pretty prominent Anglican. What is the category we have already? I don't see one on Abbott, though Dean Acheson is listed under American Episcopalians. I propose creating Category:Prominent Anglicans, making sure all these folks are on it (if they fit), and doing away with the list.  ~ InkQuill  04:24, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Lists allow for red-links and annotation. So far this list is not really doing either, but I think improvement is possible.--T. Anthony (talk) 13:12, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Ambiguity[edit]

"Only former Anglicans who left the church in adulthood may be included, with accompanying notice.": this appears to mean that Anglicans who remained in the same church would not be included. Was the idea "Former Anglicans who left the church in adulthood may be included only with accompanying notice."  ? The formulation of the lead seems difficult to understand.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 22:30, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
