Most Famous People without a Wikipedia Article

Post by Gavin Chipper » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:24 pm

I've seen a few discussions of this over the years, and Mark Deeks put something on Facebook about it the other day, but amazingly it would appear that there's no thread on here about it. Consider that changed.

I don't think anyone has a Wikipeda article.
Otherwise known as "Will", "JC", or "that guy who's bad at The Mole".

^ Lest there be any doubt, Mark grew up in England in the 90s and measures the world as a whole on that basis.

The Wright brothers as well.

I don't think much of Shovell from the M People though. I was perfectly well aware of the M People at the time, but the only individual I was aware of was Heather Small.

I can Imagine lots of members of even greater groups than M People will have members without Wiki pages

Without wanting to be indelicate she didn't achieve much of note apart from Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
