Category:Living people

From WikiMaga
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This category is for articles structured as biographical entries for living individuals.
Purpose: Because living persons may suffer personal harm from inappropriate information, we should watch their articles carefully. By adding an article to this category, it marks them with a warning message whenever someone tries to edit them, to remind them of WP:BLP (biographies of living persons) policy that these articles must maintain a neutral point of view, maintain factual accuracy, and are properly sourced. Recent changes to these articles are listed on Special:RecentChangesLinked/Category:Living people.
Organization: This category should not be sub-categorized. Entries are generally sorted by family name.
Maintenance: Individuals of advanced age (over 90), for whom there has been no new documentation in the last decade, may be removed from this category and transferred to Category:Possibly living people.
Errata: Any individual born before 1906 whose living status remains undetermined should have this category replaced with Category:Year of death missing (the same application should be followed for individuals in Category:Possibly living people and those in Category:Missing people who had not been heretofore declared legally dead).
