Fairmile B[edit]

I have copied some information here about Fairmile B to Fairmile B motor launch--Geronimo20 06:23, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Launch (boat)[edit]

The page for Launch (boat) has almost no information on launches other than the fact that they aren't necessarily British Navy vessels. I really think these two pages should be merged and one page be a subsection on the other. Jkar (talk) 15:29, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

MLs are a quite specific military type of launch, perhaps it would be better to expand the Launch (boat) page to include more types of launch? --jmb (talk) 16:33, 10 July 2008 (UTC)


Requested move 20 October 2013[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Discussion moved to Talk:Motor Gun Boat#Requested move 20 October 2013. All six discussions are in regards to WP:CAPSACRS; best to centralize the discussions so that six separate discussions are not happening. Steel1943 (talk) 07:48, 31 October 2013 (UTC)


Motor LaunchMotor launch – We don't capitalise acronyms when written in full (see WP:CAPSACRS) and we don't capitalise the article names of types of ship (eg destroyer escort, aircraft carrier, river gunboat, torpedo boat, torpedo boat destroyer, and so on). The general guidance at Wikipedia is "Wikipedia avoids unnecessary capitalization". I have also proposed this change at Motor Torpedo Boat, Motor Gun Boat, Steam Gun Boat and Coastal Motor Boat.

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's policy on article titles.
  • oppose all (although I'm unfamiliar with Steam Gun Boat). These are not the simple combinations of words as for aircraft carrier etc., but they are proper noun phrases, supported as such by the many relevant sources, and so should be treated and capitalised as such.
