Archiving[edit]

I notice this has been set up for auto-archiving, so it seemed a good idea to make a start; there's over 250kb of discussion here, and it's probably best not to let a bot split it up.
I've moved the old discussions (everything before April 2011) to Achive 1; I've moved the RM from this year to Archive 2.
I trust that's OK with everyone. Xyl 54 (talk) 15:53, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

PS On reflection, I've moved the "no move decision questions" to Archive 2 also, as they are related to the RM. Xyl 54 (talk) 16:01, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Requested move to "Corvette (ship)":2011[edit]

The following summary is the closing admin's summary of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page.

The result of the move request was: not moved. While there is a huge amount of discussion here (often circular), the number of actual distinct arguments on both sides is limited. Arguments for the move are fairly strong based on the letter of the guidelines, but oppose arguments are not so obviously against policy as to be discountable. Numerical distribution of opinions is strongly in favour of the status quo – indeed so much so that if I were to close it on a simple !vote count this would come out not just as a "no consensus" but as a clear "consensus against". The repeated relistings have not led to a significant shift of this balance. On strength of arguments, it's a "no consensus". Even if I saw a fully compelling preponderance of the support arguments, given that this whole decision is not a matter of life or death, i.e. there is no argument that a "wrong" decision either way would seriously compromise core values and policies of the encyclopedia, I have no reason to make a closing against the wishes of the great majority of commenters.

I've pasted the closing admin's summary here (with some minor changes to reflect the archived location of the discussion) - I don't want to go through all that again just because an editor hasn't read the archive. Please feel free to adjust as required to tell the whole story. Shem (talk) 16:12, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Good thinking! (agreed; and no, I really don't!). Xyl 54 (talk) 13:06, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
I wrote out a couple of paragraphs that I thought summarised the discussion, but decided not to save because I felt that would probably spark a pointless debate. All I will say is that it was an extremely lengthy debate that can't really be summarised in one paragraph and that even the close was heavily contested (though upheld at AN as a reasonable judgement call for the closing admin to make, if I recall). In short, don't just go off the close, read the whole discussion (or as much of it as is humanly possible). Jenks24 (talk) 13:52, 8 August 2011 (UTC)


Commandanti Class[edit]

The commandanti Class of the italian navy, ¿it's a corvette or a patrol boat? 190.189.44.24 (talk) 19:03, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

If you mean the Comandanti Medaglie d'Oro class destroyer then the answer is clearly no, they were destroyers. If you are referring to a different class of ship please provide more information about it. Roger (talk) 16:04, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

USS Constellation[edit]

According to her own page she was a frigate, converted to a sloop of war. 2.100.200.238 (talk) 18:39, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
