Low?[edit]

I'd say this is probably one of the more interesting Falkland topics, although there is little information available.--MacRusgail (talk) 14:16, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

I believe there may be some mistake - This is only rated low within WP:South America, which covers the entire continent. With the Falklands task force it is rated mid, this was to give precedence to the high rated Languages of the Falkland Islands, which in turn gives precedence to the top rated Falkland Islanders.
There is no established importance scale for the task force, so I appreciate any input. I'd be willing to consider bumping this up to high and the languages up to top alongside the islanders article, your thoughts?
Within the context of WP:South America's rating, this is probably the least spoken Language of South America. The importance criteria says:
  • "Low: Subject is not particularly notable or significant even within the field of South America, and may have been included primarily to achieve comprehensive coverage of another topic."
  • "Mid: Subject contributes to the total subject of the South America WikiProject. Subject may not necessarily be famous." Ryan4314 (talk) 14:34, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Right, I get you. Yes, you're correct in saying it's pretty low priority if we're talking about the continent. Although of course, it is perhaps the only real English dialect of South America this side of Brazil (Guyana and Trinidad would count perhaps as some of the few South American English accents/dialects, don't know about Anglo-Argentines etc) I don't know what the procedures are for changing the system are though (like so many things on Wikipedia!)--MacRusgail (talk) 18:46, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
