  • Support - Wow! I can read it! I'm partially colorblind (daltonism) and I can't remember the last time I could read a map with so many different colors used in the key but I can read yours perfectly because of the hash marks you added to some colors! yay!--Deglr6328 05:51, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
    • Great to have you around to comment on issues like this, and great to see a map that finally cuts it. Lots of brownie points on the image for this, of course. — Sverdrup 13:08, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
    • that's good. i was worried about this, but i didnt put it through any testing to check for this. perhaps more could be added to the map to control for this. – ishwar  (speak) 16:36, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
      • There is one thing....If you add checkmarks (# pattern) to Chumashan it will make it much easier to distingush from Chimakuan which while being nearly the same color (to me anyway) has very similar luminance also. This would resolve the only slight difficulty in reading the image as it is now. --Deglr6328 04:05, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
        • i added the checkerd grid pattern to Chumash. – ishwar  (speak) 21:28, 9 December 2005 (UTC)
          • Perfect!--Deglr6328 00:19, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Good map and interesting map, although there isn't too much special about it (more than noted above). As a sidenote I think it would add wayy more to the article if it was next to some nice text in the beginning. — Sverdrup 13:08, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
    • added content to Indigenous languages of the Americas#Greenland, Canada & USA section. yeah, it is just a map — no more, no less. i thought that it may add significantly to the article, especially since the article was (and mostly is) a list of families. i havent found anything better on the internet (which was why i created it). if it lacks specialness, is there a way to increase specialness? or is the topic itself the problem? thank you for comments. – ishwar  (speak) 16:36, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Definitely has my support - a fine piece of craftsmanship. Denni 00:40, 9 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Clear support. The only improvement I can think of would be an svg version. —Cryptic (talk) 19:46, 9 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - this is just what featured pictures should be. It's stuff like this that just can't be adequately described in any amount of text. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 20:11, 9 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose P-unit 23:45, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Detailed and well referenced. Enochlau 01:00, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Very informative, would be much better as svg though! - JustinWick 00:47, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support -- Chris 73 | Talk 00:43, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, can we get a map of this quality for Mexico and south too? :) Titoxd(?!? - did you read this?) 21:03, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, for a lot of work is needed to create an illustration like this, and the result is clear and informative. --Dschwen 17:44, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
