I am willing to serve as go-between for the Swedish Expedition. I guess this is the last step before opening up the Swedish version? We'll keep in touch... --[[User:Alers|Alers]] 06:46, 22 Aug 2004 (EDT)

Caps In Titles

Evan: I guess you are referring to my change of 'Caribbean islands' to 'Caribbean Islands'; I cannot bring to mind any other capitalization changes I've made recently.

I saw 'Caribbean Islands' as a placename in its own right; not like the example 'New York restaurants' in the mos where 'New York' is the placename and 'restaurants' a topic qualifier. Certainly the article was already written with that sense, and internally capitalized.

But I do see that you could also argue that 'Caribbean' is the placename, and the article is about islands that happen to be in the Caribbean, in which case the 'New York restaurants' precedent certainly holds.

Umm. No sure any more. -- Chris j wood 10:33, 6 Aug 2004 (EDT)

Yeah. I'm having a hard time coming up with "Caribbean Islands" as a proper name in dictionaries or the Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names. I think it's more like "Islands of the Caribbean Sea", which the existing Caribbean islands was more like.
If you're bent on having a proper name, maybe West Indies would be the right name? --Evan 10:48, 6 Aug 2004 (EDT)

Thanks for your welcome-message and the tips. Niemand 16:03, 11 Aug 2004 (EDT)
