Wikepedia's list is missing certain Gedolim. Where can I access a list of Gedolim that would be virtually unarguable?

I've closed this as it "will likely solicit opinion, debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion": the good version of this question already exists, at judaism.stackexchange.com/q/13000. –  msh210 Jan 31 '12 at 6:24

Virtually unarguable? God Himself is called "Gadol" by King David in Psalm 145:3. To this day, I don't think anyone would disagree on that one.

גדול יהוה ומהלל מאד ולגדלתו אין חקר

The Lord is great and very much praised, and His greatness cannot be searched.

(Chabad.org translation)
