Peter Hugh McGregor EllisPeter Ellis (childcare worker) – This person simply isn't known by his middle names, so the current article name does not comply with our naming conventions. Finding a better article name won't necessarily be uncontroversial, though. There's been much discussion back in 2006 what the scope of the article should be (should it be the case or the person linked to the case?) and there was majority support for this to be a biography. Given that the case (and thus the person) is still topical in New Zealand, I suggest that notability of the person is even stronger these days, and it should stay a bio. The article was first set up as Peter Ellis (New Zealand), but we don't dab by country any longer, as it does not describe what the person is. After brief discussion, the article was moved to Peter Hugh McGregor Ellis. It's been discussed before that using his full name might not be appropriate, but it didn't go anywhere. One of the issues considered was whether the word 'former' should form part of the dab, as he no longer is a childcare worker; I believe this is irrelevant, as the point of the dab is to disambiguate a person's name by what he (or she) is known for, and there is no doubt that he is known for having been in that profession. What do others think? Schwede66 19:00, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Peter Ellis (childcare worker)/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

Biography project assessment of 6 December 2006: No comment or rationale was supplied by unknown person supplying B rating assessment for article. We thank them all the same although we struggle to see how Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment criteria for B class is justified. Perhaps it reflects the assessor's grasp of subject matter rather than article content but as we have no constructive comment contributors are unlikely to ever never know. Not a constructive process.
