Size of article[edit]

The article is 120k and would grow considerably, perhaps to 250k, if substantial inputs per season are done. Partly as an experiment, I created W. G. Grace in the 1878 English cricket season recently and I suggest that is the way forward. Grace is too big a subject for a single article and even needs his own category! ----Jack | talk page 10:59, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

It might be illuminating to see how Wiki biographies of major historical or literary figures (eg Churchill or Shakespeare) have dealt with the problem. JH (talk page) 17:59, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Winston Churchill has been tagged as over 100k and has its own category which contains numerous other biographical pieces. ----Jack | talk page 18:11, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Rating[edit]

As the article is subject to extensive restructure via the creation of multiple sub-articles, I've reduced the rating to start until it adequately meets criteria 1 and 5. ----Jack | talk page 12:08, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
