Old nomination at Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Music of the Lesser Antilles/archive1. I think this topic is pretty good overall, despite the obscurity of some of the components.

Of these, music of the Lesser Antilles, Music of Barbados, Music of Dominica and Music of Antigua and Barbuda are Good Articles. Lesser Antilles is a current FAC, and Saint Lucia and the Virgin Islands are current GAN. Tuf-Kat 15:19, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Comment. I would have given it my support if it weren't for the Music of Anguilla article, which looks stubby. If it is improved to a reasonable extent, you will have my support. I don't know about comprehensiveness, but if the article deserves to exist (i.e. is notable), there should be more info present. — Ambuj Saxena (talk) 17:54, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I've just fleshed out music of Anguilla the best I can. If there is any other verifiable information out there, I can't find evidence of it. Tuf-Kat 05:11, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I would give a weak support now. But we have a different problem at hand. Very few people know of the Featured Topic page. If there aren't four supports, the topic won't be promoted. — Ambuj Saxena (talk) 11:43, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, I'm the only one who's done any promoting here, and I haven't required four supports. (I won't pass this one without at least two more though, with no objects) Four supports will be difficult at this stage. I think this will get more attention as time goes on. Nobody will be interested until there's a significant list, and we won't have that without some time, especially since making a topic feature-worthy is so difficult. Still, over time, we will have a list of welldone topics and that will attract more contributors (who will probably raise the official standards, as well as the standards of what we consider consensus). WP:FL took awhile to take off, IIRC, and so did WP:FP. WP:FAC only didn't because it was just a list of "brilliant prose" in the beginning, and there was no process.

  • Oppose. It's pretty close, but Music of Anguilla and Music of Grenada seem stubby, and St. Kitts and Nevis and St. Vincent and the Grenadines are pretty short. Additionally, Trinidad and Tobago doesn't have that many sources. The overall topic is pretty good, still. Hurricanehink (talk) 00:55, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose for now - I would recommend extending its nomination for another week to give the nominator time to expand the short articles. --Arctic Gnome 00:12, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
