Map[edit]

The map would make a whole lot more sense with Australia centred. Is that allowed? Or is there a law that US/Europe must be centred on maps? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.13.144.174 (talk) 22:57, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

POV check[edit]

There seems to be a tug of war developing between bouncy enthusiasm in the first section (everybody wants to add their hometown), and sombre nit-picking in the second. The page is about a real thing, the "Pacific Rim" exists, but it has several faces; such as:

  1. the physical geography entity, which also kind of overlaps with the geological "Ring of Fire"
  2. the economics / marketing meme
  3. the NGOs and IGOs that have emerged to exploit / develop 2.
  4. possible social / demographic / anthropology systems arising out of relationships around the PR

Can the page be re-structured to highlight these different aspects? That could be a way to establish neutrality, to make it clear which of the various nuances of "Pacific Rim" we are talking about at each step. Swiveler (talk) 08:57, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

More footnotes tag added[edit]

This article has an impressive bibliography that is useless due to the lack of inline citations. The one footnote cites About.com, which is not a reliable source, as it often mirrors past and present versions of Wikipedia. --momoricks talk 02:33, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

"Prim" Reference[edit]

What the hell is with the reference to "persons of a mixed background, with one half of their heritage originated from a country of the Pacific Rim." Sorry, but I'm throwing a bullshit flag on the play. Princess sarah5 - Put it up again sans reference and I will delete it again. Just because you think a term is clever doesn't give you the right to induct it into the English language via Wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.116.30.194 (talk) 15:42, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
