Non-reliable sources[edit]

Per Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons, (and I'm assuming all the people on the list are alive) you may not use unreliable sources in this instance. "Be very firm about the use of high-quality sources" and "Contentious material about living persons (or, in some cases, recently deceased) that is unsourced or poorly sourced—whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable—should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion."

I have removed 46 citations that do not qualify as high-quality sources or reliable sources. (I don't purport to have gotten them all.) I'm bending the rules by leaving the entry of the person in the table and tagging them as "citation needed". I'm doing this in order to give editors some times to roust up some reliable sources, and because restoring content in a table is a lot more difficult than restoring a sentence or two of prose. It's also easier for you to spot which ones need to be hunted up, by searching the list for "citation needed".

However, I will revisit this page in a few days and I may well delete those entries with "citation needed" tags remaining.

List inclusion/exclusion tips[edit]

Those who are no longer vegans: Considering the name of this list-article is "List of vegans", I find it incorrect to have a statement in the lead (supposedly part of the inclusion criteria) which says "All the people on this list reportedly for some time during their lives practised a vegan diet." If that's the case, and you KNOW someone who is no longer a vegan, it would be incorrect (per WP:BLP and other wiki policies) to keep them on this list. I'm not suggesting one should periodically re-verify everyone on the list. For example, if I once upon a time practiced veganism, and now am no longer vegan, and I found my name on a Wikipedia list saying I was a vegan, I would be pissed because you're telling an untruth about me. Hence, our policies at WP:BLP.

Those who are dead: I noticed at least one person on the list who is dead. That doesn't fit in with "List of vegans" title, either, not expressly, however you could create a second table for "Dead vegans" (come up with a better title, please). You can force a table of contents so that there's a link at the top for someone to click on. It's easy enough to locate the dead people: mouse down the list, hover over each name, and see if someone is dead (they'll have a date of death usually in the first sentence).

Those who are not individual people: I also see a "group" at the top of the list, "8 Foot Sativa". That doesn't make sense to have a "group" as an entry because group members can change (especially bands!). Either add all the names of the group members into the table, or leave it out.

Normal Op (talk) 02:48, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

People who are known to be no longer vegan are removed and added to the list at the top of this talk page. A record is maintained so they are not added back with an older source. I disagree with removing dead vegans. Many lists of famous vegans in reliable sources include dead vegans. We wouldn't, for example, remove a dead Jew from a list of notable Jews etc. It is understood by readers that a lifestyle or dietary choice pertains to somebody who was alive when they made that choice. If somebody dies vegan then it still characterises their life. Creating a second table for dead vegans is pedantic; the fact that you characterise them as "dead vegans" illustrates that being dead/alive is not intrinsic to being characterised as vegan. I do not accept that including dead vegans on the list is inconsistent with the title; but even if it were, the title was chose to describe the content not the other way around so the solution is choosing a better a title, not culling content.

A great many very GOOD human vegans are NOT on the list. Perhaps this should be 'list of famous vegans' with the key characteristic of concern being their fame or notoriety, and their vegan diet as secondary. Many who look to science or sensitivity to others are driving concerns are not highly motivated to seek visibility and notoriety. That the list is complicated by the requirement for notoriety seems problematic when considering the various 'ideas' tagged AS being 'vegan' (ethical veganism, best health pursuit, weight loss, religious teachings pointing toward veganism, easiest or cheapest version of something else (macrobiotics or raw foods), effective altruism pointing to veganism, etc. Surely those not familiar with the breadth of human community that is characterized BY vegan dietary practices would not want to spend thinking time trying to develop a better, more robust article with intellectual 'color' and nuances that help readers understand the multiplicity of what the term 'vegan' variably connotes in friendly practice.

The criteria for inclusion isn't fame or notoriety, it is notability which is consistent with WP:CSC. It is essentially a list of notable vegans, but WP:LISTNAME prefer simple and concise titles and recommends omitting descriptors such as "notable" from the title. In that spirit that is why we don't call the article List of notable living and dead people who have an article here on Wikipedia that are dietary vegans or were at the time they passed away.

I agree there's no problem with including dead people in this list.
I see most of the sources Normal Op removed are PETA-related. I certainly don't consider PETA reliable in general, but if they report that a celebrity they've interviewed said they're vegan, and that celebrity has not publicly disputed or denied that claim, I don't think there's a problem.

WP:BLP is clear that sources have to be high-quality sources. Please read the lead paragraph of WP:BLP for the rest of what is said on that. As for peta.org for citations, please see WP:ABOUTSELF where it reads: "Self-published and questionable sources may be used as sources of information about themselves, usually in articles about themselves or their activities, ... so long as: the material is neither unduly self-serving nor an exceptional claim; it does not involve claims about third parties; there is no reasonable doubt as to its authenticity." Waiting for a celebrity to notice what is in a Wikipedia article about themselves and seeing if they object... well that ain't ever gonna happen, dude. Most of these celebrities are Hollywood celebs, and they will take all the attention they can get. It increases their value. They are NOT going to butt heads with PETA and their advertising machine unless they plan on retiring immediately. It's been tried. Careers have been ruined. PETA may not be a reliable source for Wikipedia, but they yield a lot of sway for public opinion (some public). And public opinion is all that keeps a celebrity a celebrity. All that aside, Wikipedia policy is clear. There should be no bending of these rules just because it seems harmless to call someone a vegan. Normal Op (talk) 07:12, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
As made clear by SMcCandlish here -- a far more experienced Wikipedian than you are -- Adrian J. Hunter has it right. But by all means, continue your wikilawyering. Flyer22 Frozen (talk) 21:20, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Suggestions for avoiding more AfD's[edit]

I have started a discussion at Talk:List of vegetarians#The problem with this list that applies equally to this list. RockMagnetist(talk) 21:46, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
