Hi Algkalv, I've reverted your revert of my deletion of "standalone". Do we really want to put that somewhat ugly word in front of half the mountains here, such as Schiehallion, Buachaille Etive Mor, Beinn Dearg (to name several Scottish ones)? I don't think so. If asked to draw a schematic pic of a mountain most people would draw a pyramid, would you not agree? It would be redundant to call it a standalone pyramid. I have heard of ridges.

Most mountains are part of a mountain chain/range, and while many are tall, their prominence is reduced due to them being part of a, say, ridge. The piece of information concerning prominence and membership in a given chain, if any, is vital. It's not a matter of life and death, but your edit removes that information. Reword, by all means, if you hate the word 'standalone', but include that information. If you don't, I will have to put it back as it was. — Algkalv (talk) 23:39, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

I think you have it wrong way round. I would have thought it sensible to assume that mountains are "standalone" unless otherwise mentioned, just as it would be sensible to assume that cars have four wheels unless they have three or whatever. Should we say in all car articles that, eg, "The Ford Sierra is a car with four wheels"; so the Aiguille du Dru page states that the mountain is part of a ridge leading to the Aiguille Verte, Grand Pilier d'Angle states that the mountain is a buttress of Mont Blanc. Besides, with what you call its "shallow saddle", Alanngorsuaq hardly seems "standalone" in the way that say K2 or the mountains I've cited above are. The photograph in the article clearly shows this. Compare with, for example, Suilven. Ericoides 07:37, 23 September 2010 (UTC)


Passed GA with flying colours. Told you didn't I! Please return and be active again!♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:43, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

So did Air Greenland. You were convinced that neither would pass. Well we now have two GAs for Greenland! Well done! I was looking forward to the collaboration you said about in September, I'm sorry it never happened.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:43, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

If you get the chance, could you review this article for accuracy? My book sources are rather old. Thanks for any input or suggestions! -Uyvsdi (talk) 05:59, 1 November 2010 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Photo request[edit]

Are you in Nuuk? If so, would it be alright if you photographed the Air Greenland headquarters in Nuuk? The only address on the airline website is "P. O. Box 1012 DK-3900 Nuuk" but I'm certain one can find the head office if he/she asks around. Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 19:46, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
