This article I think prompts a discussion on notability. Is this person notable enough for inclusion here? What is our standard of notability? Management in a company or organisation? dscosson ··· talk 08:11, 13 April 2008 (CDT)

Yeah, I'm not sure. I don't want to say, "Well, I've never heard of him, so he's not notable." Upper management of a noteworthy business would be a good enough line for me. That being said, this is almost certainly a vanity page. Also, their website lists neither him nor his position, so it's possible that 1620 is one of those businesses that gives important-sounding titles to all their employees.
What do you think of this: how about we enact some kind of reasonably strict notability policy until we've got, say, 2500 solid articles. I don't mind an abundance of arguably trivial articles; I just feel like we need to address the obvious stuff first. Once we've established a broader base of knowledge, we can be a bit more lax. If you agree, maybe we could codify this at Pensapedia:Notability? --Admin 10:16, 13 April 2008 (CDT)
Yeah. At this point, I would state notability as far as living persons to 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.) and newsworthy individuals (including criminals, people like Chris Hall, etc). Leaving anything out? dscosson ··· talk 11:19, 13 April 2008 (CDT)
I'd agree with that. --Admin 15:05, 13 April 2008 (CDT)
So... should we just go around and delete those articles which do not meet our new standard? dscosson ··· talk 15:24, 13 April 2008 (CDT)
I reckon so. Who's on the chopping block? --Admin 15:26, 13 April 2008 (CDT)
See Pensapedia talk:Notability. Prob a better location for this discussion. dscosson ··· talk 15:31, 13 April 2008 (CDT)
