split article proposal: Riau Islands province vs Riau Islands/Archipelago[edit]

This article was created to refer to the Riau Islands as the Riau archipelago south of Singapore.

The problem is, the recently created Riau Islands province covers more than the Riau archipelago, and includes the Natunas and Anambas archipelagos, which have nothing to do with Riau archipelago in terms of history, geography, political situation (with Singapore), social and cultural situation (current mix of population due to industrialization, orang lauts, Tanjung Pinang, language...), etc.

Therefore I propose the article should be split between the Riau Islands Province as opposed to Riau Islands (as Riau Archipelago), the latter being the current article!Tlanson 01:25, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Quality of information[edit]

For example the official web page for the province of Riau Islands(http://kepriprov.go.id/id/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=37&Itemid=47, in Indonesian) suggests, that the land area of the islands is much less that currently suggested in this article & population is nowadays over 1.3 million. Could somebody (who can Indonesian) correct these facts? --Paju (talk) 15:03, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
