Notes[edit]

Uh, has anyone noticed a missing ethnicity? Where are the famous European-Americans? I'm not willing to tackle a project that size, but I'm sure it can be done. Citizen Premier 06:45, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Liberians[edit]

The List of Liberian-Americans points to the Americo-Liberians so should not be included here; I will be WP:Bold and make it so. Carlossuarez46 18:23, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

List of Canadian Americans[edit]

It's 2015, and we do not have a list for Canadian Americans?? Savvyjack23 (talk) 19:26, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

we have Canadian Americans? Frietjes (talk) 18:09, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
So why not on the template? Not list enough? 188.238.100.116 (talk) 12:02, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
And, that would be a bad reason: Australian Americans links to "Australian American#Notable Australian Americans", Honduran links to "Honduran American", Trinidadian and Tobagonian links to "Trinidadian and Tobagonian American", Guatemalan and Peruvian are redlinks.
So there are already three which are not lists listed. 188.238.100.116 (talk) 12:21, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Now, the redlinks are gone. But if the non-lists can stay, there are many more in Template:Asian Americans, Template:European Americans, Template:West Indian Americans, Template:Hispanic and Latino Americans and Template:Arab Americans. Most of them have section list like this: Georgian Americans#Notable Georgian Americans and the above mentioned Australian article. 85.76.80.171 (talk) 02:50, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Renovations[edit]

I am currently working on a large scale project to standardize and beautify the Lists of Notable Americans, sorted by ethnicity, because god damn they are a mess. Any Advice on how to do so or the standards that everyone is missing, including me, please feel free to tell me.The Editor's Apprentice (talk) 21:02, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
