Major and minor predictions

Not all predictions are equal. There ought to be some way of distinguishing widely-reported or -believed predictions (like Harold Camping's), from the rantings of some disregarded street preacher. Perhaps a star before the date or something? Anyone got any suggestions? --Arensb 11:58, 18 February 2012 (CST)

I'd suggest sectioning this page by the church / religious group that the prediction was under the banner of, thus pretty much cutting out the lone wolf predictions that barely anyone knew about. And I suspect the majority of people reading and editing the list are only really interested in one particular religious group anyway, so that'd be easier to follow. --jaban 17:28, 21 May 2012 (CDT)

Ideally, all of these predictions should be accompanied by references. --Arensb 15:05, 18 May 2012 (CDT)
