I reckon all six people would have to be added together, but in my opinion Analytical Review could (possibly should) be added now - rst20xx (talk) 17:31, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I was just going to wait and add them all together - saves time and energy. It is such a bother to add anything to the topic. However, if you think we should add AR now, let's add all of the current FAs. Awadewit (talk) 17:54, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Well as I said, I think all six people would have to be added together, as adding some but not others would result in an obvious gap in that section of the topic, whereas having none means they are not currently (not yet, anyway) in the scope of the topic.
But if you want to wait, and add them all at once, or add either Memoirs of the Author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and Analytical Review or the people and Analytical Review together, that's of course absolutely fine.
I only said you possibly should add Analytical Review now as one could argue it presents a gap in being her only work not currently included, however equally one could argue it doesn't as Analytical Review is a periodical and she only contributed to it, so it's fine for it to be out for now - rst20xx (talk) 19:23, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
I'd rather not go to the trouble for just one article. I'm about to leave for Wikimania anyway, so I wouldn't be able to keep up with the nomination. Awadewit (talk) 19:37, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
