ranking fashion-industry cities[edit]

What are your thoughts about removing all mention of the fashion-industry ranking system for cities that is cited in this article? As I have stated parenthetically in the Florence section of the article, it is based exclusively upon frequency of mention in global media outlets in a ranking system where financial revenues and industry influence are neither considered nor calculated by other means.Ctconnolly (talk) 07:02, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

I am deleting the following from the Florence section: "Florence has been ranked as the 31st main fashion capital of the world by the Global Language Monitor,[1] making it Italy's third most important fashion centre after Milan and Rome (based exclusively upon frequency of mention in global media outlets in a ranking system where financial revenues and industry influence are neither considered nor calculated by other means)." The non-parenthetical part seems to me more a self-promotion for the private company Global Language Network than a meaningful appraisal of Florence's influence in the global fashion industry. What are your thoughts about removing all of the Global Language Network ranking references in this article? Discuss.Ctconnolly (talk) 19:12, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

I think it would be a sensible thing to do. Ian Spackman (talk) 00:59, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
