Prime Ministers[edit]

Do Prime Ministers count as high importance? Guettarda 15:20, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Good question. I would think yes, except in extreme cases (serving only a few non-notable weeks or months, for instance.) Badbilltucker 15:28, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Top importance[edit]

I noticed that Jwilbur placed Hispaniola into Top inmportance. I don't have a clear sense of what I consider top importance here. I think we should talk about what we consider Top, High, Mid and Low importance. Guettarda 14:31, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Importance scale[edit]

My suggestion for importance scale is something like this

Top

High

  • Subdivisions of nations with clear national identities (Tobago, Nevis) or major subdivisions of non-Caribbean nations (Florida Keys, Margarita)
  • Major national leaders (Prime Ministers, Governors, etc.)
  • Major regional figures (Bob Marley)
  • Major cities
  • Major topics about national entities (e.g., History of Puerto Rico, Geography of Cuba)

Mid

  • Nationally prominent figures (politicians, musicians, trade unionists)
  • Smaller cities and towns
  • Sub-topics about national entities (e.g., Military history of Puerto Rico)
  • Sub-national entities
  • Major schools
  • Major buildings (Parliament buildings, etc.)
  • Plant, animal & microbial species

Low

  • Smaller towns and villages
  • Locally prominent figures
  • Minor secondary schools, primary schools
  • Other buildings

How's that for a start? Guettarda 17:00, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Ah, that looks really good. It is just what I was thinking. If no one objects, we should add it to the Assessment page. Jwillbur 20:21, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
As for the top-importance "major topics", here is my go at creating a complete list:
I'm not sure "Economy of" should be in there, and "Politics of" could be replaced with "Government of". These would be the same major topics for country-level (high-importance) articles, i.e. Culture of Jamaica, Economy of Jamaica, etc. Thoughts? Jwillbur 21:11, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
