Unnamed[edit]

No one gave the name of the deepest part of this trench but all other trenches have one name or another, "*** deep" was the constant.Undead Herle King (talk) 21:01, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

earlier comment[edit]

sunda trench

Lost (tv show) has started referencing the Sunda Trench. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.187.156.174 (talk) 00:35, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

If 'Sunda trench' is more accurate, don't you guys think that it's also more accurate to move this page to 'Sunda trench'? --kandar (talk) 08:39, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

The editor who provided that comment did not give any reference or cite to back that up - if there is no WP:RS to ascertain the usage - no - leave it as it is SatuSuro 08:48, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

There is already a redirect for Sunda trench - even less reason for any sense of a move SatuSuro 08:56, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, it's redirected to 'Java trench'. Why don't we do it in reverse? If we look at geological maps, we will mostly found that the label is 'Sunda trench', because it is related with geographical terms such as Sundaland, Sunda islands, Sunda sea and Sunda plate. And that's include a picture in this article. :P --kandar (talk) 09:12, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Sunda is not the only cultural region in Indonesia.... it is not part of what Wikipedia is about to give WP:UNDUE emphasis upon any one item against another SatuSuro 09:17, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Of course not. We are talking about geological terms, not about culture. --kandar (talk) 09:34, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
If you can find adequate WP:RS to justify the move - do it - the point is the Java trench is historically correct - since the larger Sumatran earthquakes the broader Sunda term has been used extensively due to better knowledge of plate tectonics and the extent of the trench and the plate - so if it is moved - for a good acknowledgement of WP:NPOV it has to be acknowledged that it was known for a long time as Java trench. Not as the Sunda trench. SatuSuro 09:42, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
DONE - found a ref to say it has been officially that since 1987 - thanks for the comments SatuSuro 12:11, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, SatuSuro. --kandar (talk) 08:55, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Lost references[edit]

Is it worth including information about the presence of the trench in the TV show Lost? For reference: [1]--MichaelProcton (talk) 05:06, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

of absolutely no relevance. Pure pop culture cruft. It might be notable on the Lost page but that has no bearing on this page. . --Merbabu (talk) 07:49, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
No need for the shitty attitude. I could show you dozens of pages with cultural reference sections.--MichaelProcton (talk) 01:47, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
No need to show me - I've seen dozens upon dozens. Indeed, there is shit all through wikipedia. No need to bring it in here too. Having said that, there is fortunately a lot less of these sections across wikipedia than there was say 4 years ago. By the way, is Sunda Trench mentioned in the relevant Lost article/s? cheers --Merbabu (talk) 02:01, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Map[edit]

Has anyone thought about including a map to show its area in relation to the world? The map currently included is very local and does not give any idea as to where the trench lies. P0150neD r1Ce asian 11:08, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

If Java Trench redirects here, we should definitely have a map that includes the portion of the trench off of Java. If I have time I'll see what I can make from public data, but something useable probably already exists somewhere as well. Elriana (talk) 18:09, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
