Music of the Lesser Antilles[edit]

Main page Articles
Music of the Lesser Antilles Music of Anguilla - Music of Antigua and Barbuda - Music of Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles - Music of Barbados - Music of Dominica - Music of Grenada - Music of Martinique and Guadeloupe - Music of Montserrat - Music of Saint Kitts and Nevis - Music of Saint Lucia - Music of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines - Music of Trinidad and Tobago - Music of the Virgin Islands

I think all of these are at least pretty good in terms of content, though images are lacking. Music of Anguilla and music of Montserrat are the least-detailed, I think. I know a few are missing references -- I can probably scrounge those up. These articles are all interlinked, but using two different templates. The Anglophone islands, which is most of them, do their own thing. Is that a problem? There is a template just for Lesser Antillean music, and each article does link to each other article. Music of the Lesser Antilles is in need of some clean-up, so I'll see what I can do with that. Any suggestions or comments? Tuf-Kat 20:47, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Comments (1) I think, if this is to be a featured topic, all its articles should be in a separate category Category:Music of the Lesser Antilles, for example. (2) At present there's no way to navigate between all the articles in the series. (3) Whilst I wouldn't expect every article in a featured topic series to have a picci, I think it's fair to expect there to be more than one photo (which isn't great, to be frank) in some of the articles (including, in particular, the lead article). (4) The reference to the St Kitt's and Nevis page is not named in the article. (5) No references on the Virgin Islands page. (6) If there's a reason why the British and US Virgin Islands aren't dealt with separately, it's not explained. Note, I haven't actually read the text yet, but think these need sorting out before it can be considered for promotion, jguk 21:28, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
    • I think I've taken care of all but #3. I've found one PD photo for the St. Kitts page, but I think it's unlikely I'll find much more. Tuf-Kat 09:10, 6 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support: There are lots of red links, which seems a little odd but is not really a problem as long as this topic is covered. It seems to meet all of the criteria, so I'll give it my support. Great work Tuf-Kat. violet/riga (t) 16:52, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose Music of Trinidad and Tobago's intro needs a serious trim down before it can be considered good quality. I'm not mentioning the awful picture and template placement in several articles as I've just taken care of it, also removing links in titles, as per WP:MoS. Any local music template should be used in addition to {{LesserAntilleanmusic}}. Steelpans are also not mentioned in Music of Trinidad and Tobago:no cookie points for you. Finally, each article should be the main in its category (add a pipe+space or * at the end of the category link). Circeus 21:19, 31 December 2005 (UTC)
