I hope you didn't mind me changing the list a little on your userpage. Some of the people on it have articles now. I also added Paolo Bacigalupi, recent winner of the Sturgeon Award.Bjones 16:44, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Al, do you want to remove those folks on the checklist who've gone blue yourself (your page, after all), or can any self-important anal-retentive type do it without asking leave of you?--Orange Mike 22:27, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

You may feel free to go for it. Once the list is whittled down, I'll generate a new one. Alvonruff 02:42, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
On second thought - people can change the list, but could they put the deleted authors in another section? I would like to use the list to update all of the author's pages in the ISFDB, so that they can point to their Wikipedia articles. I can then clean out the deleted section once I've made the changes.

I'm not planning on changing the list, for now, but I did put it on my watchlist as I intend to turn several of the red-names blue. I might remove some of those blue-names later, or not, I haven't decided. I don't think any of the articles I create will be deleted though so I might.--T. Anthony 03:19, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Al: I was #6 on your list of most popular ISFDB authors w/out wikipedia pages. I am a difficult subject because of the different directions in which I've done things, so I took the liberty of making my own. Also there seemed to be a large number of web pages that referred to me without there being a page there to be linked to. Can you or somebody go over the page I made to make sure it functions as a Wikipedia page should? A stern administrator complained that I'd done autobiography, but bascially what I did was model the entry on what someone else had done with David's. Also, I did my own page because I didn't want to end up with a page about what blogwars I might have been in by someone who doesn't like my blog's politics. The bibliography and the books are the point. (You've still got me on the list of Award Winners without Wikipedia pages.) I've kept a copy in case someone overzealous deletes my entry because I wrote it myself. --Kathryn Cramer, January 25, 2007.

He Al: This guy Will Beback is giving me a very hard time. If he doesn't stop, I will pull my bio, David's bio, and organize a boycott of Wikipedia bios for SF writers. I am trying to play by the rules, but feel I am essentially being trolled. Pleasantville 02:09, 26 January 2007 (UTC)Kathyn Cramer

GA Reassessessment of Stanisław Lem[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. I have found some concerns with the article which you can see at Talk:Stanisław Lem/GA1. I have placed the article on hold whilst these are fixed. Thanks. Jezhotwells (talk) 15:44, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

wrong Ian Gunn[edit]

The Ian Gunn who has a wikepedia article is NOT the Australain science fiction writer.
