  • So, You Want a Wikipedia Article?

    notability, wikipedia
    Having a Wikipedia article about you means you're important right? So how do you get one? "Be important" isn't a helpful. What does "important" mean from a Wikipedia perspective? Luckily they tell us:
    A person is presumed to be notable if he or she has been the subject of multiple published secondary sources which are reliable, intellectually independent of each other, and independent of the subject.
    So do stuff that will (a) get strangers to write about you in the media, and (b) get strangers to synthesize that into a Wikipedia article.

    But keep in mind: maybe you don't actually want one.
