  • There's no credible evidence that there is even a "claim" regarding a man named John William Douglas, born Aug 2 1904, and age 113. Despite having more than a year to produce evidence, Fred1949 has failed to provide a single document and there has not been a single news story on this claim.Ryoung122 (talk) 15:24, October 26, 2017 (UTC)

    • I know. That's why I said totally not in a sarcastic tone in a sarcastic tone.

      I personally don't believe Douglas' claim. Also, Fred1949's incessant pushing that John Douglas is 113 is getting very annoying.

  • Hi Richard,

    I've recently become a member of the French supercentenarian forum, and have therefore noticed that you are using maiden names for the French cases on your Early Centenarians list as opposed to their married ones. Is there any particular reason why you've chosen for this? :)

  • She didn't die in Gifu she died in Wakayama. On the japanese SC list it says Gifu. Could you or someone please correct that?

  • Hi Richard

    I was curious to know were you found the details for Alice May Bicknell. Her mother was Alice Highfield (nee Hampton) the sister of William Hampton my grandfather. Links to the the various families were lost in the late 1950's when both William and his wife died. Look forward to your reply.

    Thanks.

  • Hello Richard,

    Thank you for your excellent work to haronise the lists here. It is a pity that you have not as yet been allowed to finish the job at Oldest_living_people but I hope and expect that will change soon.

    I'm writing to suggest a new page (or possibly an expansion of an existing one). Recent I came across Potential_supercentenarians_with_no_110th_birthday_confirmation - which is in effect a list of those who went into limbo before turning 110. This leaves a nasty gap consisting of those who made it onto Oldest_living_people but then went into limbo before being verified. A new example of this category just occurred today, namely Anonymous of France (aka Juliette Lang). Do you think there is a case for creating a page for such people (or just expanding the scope of Potential_supercentenarians_with_no_110th_birthday_confirmation)? I think the timing may be right. because Robert kindly mentioned the basis for removing this case in his edit comments, in contrast to the previous such case (Zonia Way). How it would be retrospectively populated I have no idea (other than by scrutinising the edit history of Oldest_living_people and checking each case), but one must start somewhere.

    Cheers, Aubrey

      Splendid! I think it will be a significant enhancement of the service that this site provides - it was a significant shortcoming that a case could appear on a list here and then be just lost.

      As for the issue of confidentiality, I think it would be useful to everyone if a policy could be publicly stated somewhere. A reasonable presumption is that all such issues can be resolved by just renaming the case in question to "Anonymous" - yes people can identify the case if they dig, but that's true anyway. If there are reasons why that policy is oversimplistic in practice, a brief description of why would be of great benefit, I believe.


      Greetings,

      Let's be clear that the Gerontology Wiki is part of the WIKIA system...it's more like an apartment lease than a private home. It's not a private organization. As such, we cannot expect the Gerontology Wiki to be used for anything other than public use. If information can be cited in a public, reliable source, it may be cited here. If it cannot, it doesn't belong here.Ryoung122 (talk) 03:38, August 8, 2017 (UTC)

  • Please explain these new categories.

    I'm inclined to delete them as they do not follow standard naming conventions or purpose.Ryoung122 (talk) 13:31, June 2, 2017 (UTC)

    • https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valencian_Community

      The Valencian Community, or the Valencian Country, is an autonomous community of Spain. It is the fourth most populous autonomous community after Andalusia, Catalonia and Madrid with more than 4.9 million inhabitants. Its homonymous capital Valencia is the third largest city and metropolitan area in Spain.

      Also, if we can have categories for states of birth/death for American SCs and regions of birth/death for German SCs (among other nationalities such as Canadian, Italian and French SCs), then wouldn't it be logical that Spanish SCs could have their autonomy of birth/death as a category?

      Greetings, both France and Spain have issues with "super-regional" organizational entities that aren't really comparable to "US states". "Valencian Community" is more like "Southeast US'. I think it would be better to use the provincial divisions. In any case, the name "community" is a contested entity (some prefer "country") and the purpose of the Gerontology Wiki categories is for geographic, not social issue, organization. "Autonomous" region status is another issue that the Gerontology Wiki would prefer to not deal with. So, I would suggest we could go with either:

      1. Change "autonomous community" to "region"

      or

      2. Go with the province level, which is the historical level used:

      [[1]]

      Note that the provinces haven't changed since effectively 1833, but the "autonomous communities" only came into existence in 1978. Ryoung122 (talk) 17:16, June 2, 2017 (UTC)
