Thanks for the suggestions. Some, of note, are repeats, e.g. Berzelius (#160):

Can you state what sort of methodology you use to generate these candidates lists?
All the best, Libb.

440 geniuses and greatest mind candidates!
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Hedkandi_genius_candidates

Good job.

Note: for future reference, don't need letter accents in names, as these cause hyperlink and URL problems. So I just remove these.
All the best, Libb.

Thanks for the candidates. I’ve just now updated your candidates list to 536 names:
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Hedkandi_genius_candidates

It’s been helpful, e.g. it gave me a gauge when starting the Nicomachus article:
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Nicomachus

Also, there’s a new Hmolpedian named Hal who is contributing commentary to the rankings:
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Talk:Top_200 ... _and_minds

I’ll ask if he want’s to second any of your nominations?
All the best, Libb.

Also, sorry I can’t process your suggestions faster, but the re-dating of all dates in Hmolpedia using A-notation:
https://hmolpedia.com/page/A-notation

Is an involved process. Not to mention that I’ve only transferred over about 2,000 of 6,000 articles. Once I get say 2/3 of articles transferred over, I should be able to process geniuses faster?
All the best, Libb.
