File:World countries Standard & Poor's ratings.svg[edit]

Do you think you can add the color scheme for CCC rank? Jamaica and Cyprus has this rank now. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 10:39, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Hey. Sure I'll update it now, as long as those ratings are by Standard & Poor's. Thanks for letting me know. Boweruk (talk) 10:46, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
There also is a country (Grenada) with SD ranking. I am unsure if it is worth the trouble or what SD supposed to mean. :/. Could you also create a version for Europe? Also your coloring seemingly missed Greece which does have a ranking (B-). Perhaps you can recolor maybe worthwhile to denote the +'s -s. After all an B+, B and B- is drastically different. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 07:33, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
SD stands for "selectively defaulted". I'm not sure if it's worth including for just one country - might confuse things a bit. When I have time today, I'll go through all the countries - the issue is it wasn't updated for almost a year, so a few countries were never adjusted. Also, you want a close up of Europe with these ratings? Sure, I'll make one, but where were you planning on putting it? Just curious. Boweruk (talk) 10:33, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
I was thinking of slapping it under Europe economy related articles such as w:Economy of Europe also on the actual article w:List of countries by credit rating where Europe smudges. I cannot see countries such as Belgium or Luxembourg on the thumbnail. It would be nice if the Europe credit map outlined the EU if possible.
Looking back at the map, I think different colors may help the reader more. Consider a rainbow of 7 colors. Each color could denote one of the 7 ratings. Lightness or darkness of the colors can determine +/0/- nature.
AAA - Violet
AA - Indigo
A - Blue
BBB - Green
BB - Yellow
B - Orange
CCC - Red
SD - Black (absence of color)
Just a thought. :)

Good idea. I'll try it on Europe first to save some time and then we can see if it works - if so, I'll add it to the world map. Boweruk (talk) 18:38, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Alright, :) Yellow/Orange/Red may not necessarily work well with having 3 tones so you may need to substitute some other color. Also CCC only has one tone (no + or -). -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 12:58, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
How's this? Looks pretty good in my opinion - what do you think? Lighter shades are "+", darker are "-". http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Countries_of_Europe_Standard_and_Poor%27s_ratings.svg Boweruk (talk) 14:24, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
It is certainly informative but a few problems I think needs to be tackled. It has to do with colors used. Perhaps actual rainbow colors are too similar to each other and it may be better to use substitute colors in their place. I am not sure.
For instance, one problem I observe is how red can be confusing. Especially in the thumbnail, at a glance Cyprus looks like it is rated with the same rating as Czech Republic which of course is not the case. I realize the two colors are different but they may be mistaken.
AAA and CCC ranks do not seem to have a +/0/- value so perhaps they could be given colors that are more difficult to give lighter/darker variants. For instance, I'd imagine light orange and yellow would become confused with each other. Red/Green/Blue can have more light/dark values given their primary nature while more transitive colors may have that more difficult.
Also, perhaps the "key" could include the +/0/- values so the reader can immediately see the pattern.
