Pensapedia:Notability

From Pensapedia, the Pensacola encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Notability is a requirement for Pensapedia articles to avoid trivial subjects and "vanity pages."

People[edit]

The standard of notability is applied to living persons in particular. Examples of groups who might qualify as notable include:

  • media personalities
  • elected officials or upper-level non-elected government figures
  • prominent community leaders/activists
  • upper management in notable companies/organisations
  • business owners
  • those prominent in their fields (chefs, attorneys, etc.)
  • newsworthy individuals (including criminals, lawsuit plaintiffs/defendants, etc.)

Businesses[edit]

Businesses included in Pensapedia should be limited to those with an actual, verifiable storefront, or those with other significance or tenure. For example, an article about a non-notable person's start-up dog grooming business would not meet these standards.

Addresses[edit]

Articles on addresses should be limited to those which are commercially or historically significant, or lie within core historical districts such as downtown Pensacola.
