Correct GRG list?[edit]

Can anyone verify that the link to what is supposedly the current GRG list of oldest living people is actually correct? Until recently it linked to the list actually on In the past month it has been switched to a link on It appears this is a separate group from GRG, or at least I'm not seeing anything saying they are one and the same. On the actual GRG website they still link to the November 2014 list. In fact on the SRF website, if you go to the home page and click the link to the list it takes you to that same Nov. 2014 list on the GRG website, not the list we are linking to. Since GRG is being considered the gold standard for supercentarian verification, shouldn't we be certain the list we use really is their list?

This ties back into my discussion above where I mistakenly thought vandalism was going. If we are going to list someone as "Anonymous" on the list of oldest living people, we should be certain this is correct.

Yes, that is their new link. I have to say that their website and publication of updates is generally very poor. DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 05:40, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
that's just ignorant. They are the world's leader in verifying supercentarians. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:44, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Time zones[edit]

The previous RFC related to the inclusion of time zones but was worded in such a way to imply that the question was whether time zones should be included for every case, which in fact was never the issue. Several of those that opposed the inclusion of time zones generally noted that an exception should be made where it made a difference in the transition of one oldest person to another. As this occurred in only a few known cases including a note reflecting this is entirely within Wikipedia guidelines and purpose. DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 17:58, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
