Please help this article on J Barry Grenga
I just happened to find your talk page and you seem knowledgeable and navigable in the area of notability vs notoriety as it applies to wiki bios. An article was written on Draft:J Barry Grenga and was attacked by some editors who seem to feel one has to be famous infamous and have a zillion references on the web; please read the talk page of the draft article. This persons event of notability took place 20 years ago when google was just getting started so the lack of references is understandable. But there are still significant references and the article is well written. After the articles deletion I then put the same article through the submission process yesterday where prior I entered into right into the article space. Please have a look at the articles draft and if at all possible please assist in the articles approval process. Thanks. Here is the articles submission page CAT:GFOO 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:41, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Your many notes.
Thanks for looking at the entry for Gary M. Burge so seriously. Indeed I am GMB3, the same as the entry.
The idea for this entry was this: we had found the page for "Category: New Testament Scholars" and there were many not listed. We thought it might be a good project for our grad students to have a go at filling this out. And yet I could not give them guidance unless I learned how to do this myself. Which is why I tried an autobiographical entry (which I now know is discouraged). I modeled this entry on "Craig Blomberg" who is a colleague as well as "I. Howard Marshall." If you look at those, they have few external references. So would you say that they need the same entry-repairs as you've suggested for me?
I think if I had it to do over again I'd delete the entry and start over again likely with a different (more ambiguous) login name. The entry/login conflict is obvious and I regret it. This has been interesting. I've learned a lot about how this works. And I've been impressed with how careful everyone is with editing. Job well done!
