Listing of fleet visitors to NYC Fleet Week[edit]

Are the sections on the ships that were part of the NYC Fleet week an important part of this article, or should they be spun off elsewhere? FrozenPurpleCube 18:55, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

That New York city Fleet Week section is redundant and biased. "Most Well Known Fleet Week"?? To whom? New Yorkers? I will just remove the section and roll the new information into the main article. Please discuss if you feel that was unnecessary.

Fine by me, sitting in Hells Kitchen, half a mile from this week's Fleet Week action. Incidentally, labelling the www.fleetweek.mil site as being about New York is a subtle error. The site changes every time another town's Fleet Week gets going. This week just happens to be New York's time at bat. Jim.henderson 23:44, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

I recommend spin off the listing of ships at Fleetweek for New York City, my recommendation is based on the expectation that mmaybe someone starts doing the listing for the event. When does Fleetweek usually occur for New York- how much variation for the time of year it occurs? That is a fact I was expecting to find. I have no objection to the "Most Well Known Fleet Week" label. I expect ships dock in location to get a lot of attention. Also park of it swell lknow is based on population and size of the city.

Fleet week earlier phenomenon?[edit]

I have provided an image and a reference for a Fleet Week (given for US ships, nota bene) held in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1908. This article says 1935 was the first Fleet Weel. As this isn't really my stuff, I invite the regulars here to clear up that little contradiction. Cheers Ingolfson 07:26, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Similarly I've found text that the first stateside version of Fleet Week began not in San Diego but in Charleston, SC nearly 25 years before the first San Diego fleet week. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=9D0CEEDD133CE633A25754C1A9669D946396D6CF provides verification. Again, not really my stuff and I invite any regular to do a rewrite. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Garnetpalmetto (talkcontribs) 17:37, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Clarification of sentence in third para. from end of article?[edit]

"Following in the footsteps of San Francisco, Fleet Week have since spread to other cities, notably New York City starting in 1984 and San Diego starting in 1997, Fort Lauderdale." Airmanc 12:30, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

SF Stats[edit]

What is the source of the alleged one million visitors, specifically to the bay front? As a Bay Area resident I find this impossible to believe. I've been to Fleet Week and there's no way there are one million people. Hundred thousand, maybe. Sounds like hype to me.Berkeleysappho (talk) 17:18, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Contradiction[edit]

the article states the first fleet week was in 1935 but the caption to the photo next to it declares fleet week was celebrated in Auckland in 1908.

which is it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.44.19.153 (talk) 18:56, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
