The Cavour number is "550", not "552", see [1], [2]. By the way the italian navy not use the "C" prefix: Giuseppe Garibaldi (C 551) is Giuseppe Garibaldi (551), see [3]. --Il palazzo 17:42, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

I don't have time to go into this in depth at the moment, but the quoted sources in the article do not appear to meet Wikipedia';s reliable sources policy, in particular the first two appear to be self-published web sites without any indication of their authorship. - Nick Thorne talk 02:01, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Cavour home port[edit]

The article states that Cavour was never moved to Taranto because that port is too shallow, however Google Earth currently (Nov 2013)shows both Garibaldi and Cavour exactly there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.51.134.20 (talk) 19:25, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

CVH?[edit]

Many years ago, someone added CVS to this article, which is a retired US Hull code for Antisubmarine Aircraft Carrier. (Does the Italian Navy use obsolete American hull codes? Don't they use pennant numbers?) Anyway, in 2008, CVS was changed to CVH, by an IP user who is longer around. CVH was not linked to anything, there was no edit summary, no apparent consensus for the addition, and no apparent source to support it. From what I understand, CVH isn't even a real code. Further to this, in 2010, CVH was added to another part of the article, again by a IP user who is no longer around. Again, there was no edit summary, no consensus, no reference... but this time, CVH was linked to a disambiguation page, where it seems CVH was simply added as WP:OR, buy another IP user who is from the same IP range as the 2010 one... and of course, this one disappeared around the same time as well. In short, while it has managed to stay below the radar for quite awhile, CVH does not belong in this article.

@BilCat:, I'm hoping we can work together on this. Yes, it's a relatively minor issue, but as they say... "baby steps". You reverted my edit for the reason that it was "unexplained". I'm hoping that, now that I have provided an explanation, you will see clear to reverting my edits back into place. Thanks - theWOLFchild 10:23, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

note: (to anyone) - it appears that this issue will be addressed here. Please comment on that thread, instead of on this page. - theWOLFchild 14:27, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
update: still see page noted above - theWOLFchild 15:16, 24 December 2013 (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 its 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:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:45, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
