Additions to list[edit]

I think we should guard against being too stringent or narrow in the criteria in adding articles to this template. For instance, I notice that William L. Uanna, which I listed, and the Oppenheimer security hearing, which User:Uruiamme added, were removed by my good friend User:Hawkeye7. While I can understand removal of the latter, but the Uanna article involves a person of great consequence to the atomic project. I'm not even getting to his being portrayed by James Whitmore in a film on the Hiroshima bombing. The Uanna article is somewhat lacking, but still provides information of consequence. I don't believe the absence of it being GA worthy is such as to warrant removal, as indicated in the edit summary. Figureofnine (talkcontribs) 20:47, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

I don't think he is that significant a figure. Hawkeye7 (talk) 20:53, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
But he is notable enough to have an article. I don't think we should be exercising editorial discretion to include or exclude articles from templates based upon our view of the strength of their notability. Figureofnine (talkcontribs) 22:49, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
But there are 308 people in the Manhattan Project category! All are notable enough to have articles, but I want to keep the navigation box down to the 80 best and most significant articles. Hawkeye7 (talk) 23:22, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
