Lists of people[edit]

You have added the name "Rich Perez" to several lists of people, and these changes have been reverted. Before adding this, or any other name, to a Wikipedia list, please consider the following Wikipedia policies and guidelines: (1) Information added to Wikipedia must be verifiable. One of the reasons that an article, Rich Perez, was recently deleted was because most of the information in it could not be verified from reliable secondary sources (see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rich Perez). Information that is added to articles should include in-line citations that clearly identify the source of the information, and the source must be a published, reliable secondary source. (2) According to Wikipedia:Notability (people)#Lists of people, lists of people in Wikipedia are not intended to contain everyone - instead, the people listed should meet the Wikipedia standards for notability, as evidenced by reliable secondary sources. Again, the article on "Rich Perez was deleted because notability was not demonstrated, so please do not add his name to Wikipedia articles and lists unless you can clearly demonstrate notability as defined by Wikipedia policies and guidelines. (3) Wikipedia editors should not edit articles in which they have a conflict of interest and should not use Wikipedia for self-promotion. If you believe you can address these concerns, please drop me a note on my talk page or demonstrate that you are basing your edits on reliable published sources, that the subjects of your edits are notable (as defined by Wikipedia), and that you are avoiding conflicts of interest. Thank you. BRMo (talk) 00:27, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

I've reverted your latest edits to Franklin High School (Los Angeles, California). Wikikpedia's notability guideline for people says, "A person is presumed to be notable if he or she has been the subject of published secondary source material which is reliable, intellectually independent, and independent of the subject." The sources that you added ar either not independent of the subject (for example, the KLAV and Nationwide Sports websites) or are sources that cannot be regarded as reliable because they are wikis or sources that post information from anonymous Web users. Lists of notable people within articles follow the same criteria for notability. For example, Wikipedia:Stand-alone lists says, "Selected lists of people should be selected for importance/notability in that category and should have Wikipedia articles (or the reasonable expectation of an article in the future)." Please do not add names that do not meed this criterion to Wikipedia lists of people. BRMo (talk) 16:14, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
