Talk:Islands of the Atlantic Ocean

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Is the Caribbean really in the Atlantic?. Or are they separate seas and oceans?. -- Chris j wood 10:44, 5 Aug 2004 (EDT)

Great Britain and Ireland[edit]

Should the islands of Great Britain and Ireland count as islands of the Atlantic Ocean? --The.Q 12:18, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

No. This is meant for obscure little bits that don't have a better place to go. (Note that eg. Iceland and Greenland are also "missing".) Jpatokal 13:15, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

Purpose[edit]

An anonymous editor made several edits that start to add every single island in the Atlantic. I've reverted that [1] but wanted to leave a note here. The original purpose of this article was to create a place to list landmasses that didn't fit under any other container - South Georgia Island (for example) isn't a part of any continent, and we needed a place to list it. I think we want to stick with that model, but perhaps it needs to be called out more explicitly in this article? -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:27, 23 December 2009 (EST)
