Piemonte & cylindrical boilers[edit]

I think that someone had pointed it out to us earlier, but the technical name for a cylindrical boiler is actually Scotch marine boiler. I just noticed Brook or Gardiner using it while working on Piemonte. It's not worth specifically going back and fixing, but it's probably worth doing if we're working on the article anyways.

Brook had a ton of material on the ship and I'm overhauling almost the entire description section and have added more background. We might be able to run it up the flagpole once I'm finished as you've got a lot of stuff on her career-wise. I would suggest adding a class section to the infobox for all the Italian singletons, just like you did for the French armored cruisers.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 22:14, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, now that you mention it I remember that.
Looks good to me - I'll get around to the class section for Piemonte at some point, and we can put it up for ACR once we're finished with it. It might be worthwhile to try to put together a list of these sorts of ground-breaking ships and try to get them up to snuff. Parsecboy (talk) 20:03, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Battle of Malvern Hill[edit]

Hello Parsecboy,

I'd like to ask two requests of you: (1) Can you please do a page merge for User:Ceradon/Malvern Hill and the mainspace article Battle of Malvern Hill please? I've spent some 600 edits on that article (wow!). My main interest lie in building the mainspace. I's like it if my edit history reflects that :D (2) Can you please review the Battle of Malvern Hill GA? (somewhere here, probably at the bottom). The article is somewhat sizable though (9000 words. Wow again!) so I understand if you don't have the time. In any event, cheers. :) --ceradon (talkcontribs) 09:43, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I just merged the two pages - I can probably get to reviewing the article tomorrow - I don't have much time here today and I have a few GANs of my own to address first. Thanks, Parsecboy (talk) 13:07, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Woot! Thank you very much. I'm trying to get it to featured article before July 1 so I can put it up for TFA when the day rolls around. Wink.png. Thanks, --ceradon (talkcontribs) 22:34, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
  • It's always nice to have a target like that to shoot for - I think my next project is getting SMS Dresden (1907) to FA by March to run on the centenary of her sinking at the Battle of Más a Tierra (it being the centenary of WWI, I have plenty of opportunities like these :D ). I must admit I was amused to see the cartoon of McClellan - a friend of mine from grad school (who specialized on the Civil War and the Army of the Potomac in particular) kept that on his desk - he was no fan of Little Mac, to say the least ;) Parsecboy (talk) 01:19, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Mahan[edit]

I’ve been looking to clean up anything in the article that I can before nominating it. One of tings yet to done is the cropping of the last image. You may recall you were working with others to have it digitized. Would you be able to help me sort this out? Thank you. Pendright (talk) 03:55, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I do recall - @Adam Cuerden: was working on restoring the images, but I don't know where he is on that project. He might be busy right now, as I think the WP:WIKICUP has started and he usually competes in it, though I'd suggest that a restored Mahan photo would be another source of points for the competition ;-) Perhaps he can let us know what his plans are. Parsecboy (talk) 13:02, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
I am not competing in the Wikicup, and would encourage noone else to. They've been on a kick for the last year of attacking pictures as worthless. More importantly - the images are very difficult to restore (LOTS of damage; it's at least a 40-hour job), so I put them aside a bit. I should finish them, though. I'll try to get at least one this week. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:11, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Ouch - 40 hours doesn't sound much fun. And that's too bad to hear about the Wikicup - it's unfortunate that it's become such a problem (my only contact with the Wikicup was several years ago, and it only lasted long enough for them to tell me I couldn't use the Reichskriegsflagge as my flag ;-) ). Anyway, thanks for letting us know where you're at with the photos, and for having another go at one of them. Parsecboy (talk) 13:25, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
And thanks for the reminder - I tend to do the really difficult images in several spurts spaced out a bit, as it can get annoying after a while, so I needed a reminder. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:46, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
I totally understand that - I've left SMS Kaiser Friedrich III after having rewritten the articles on her four sisterships ages ago - at some point I'll get back to it ;-) Parsecboy (talk) 13:49, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
My thanks to you both! Pendright (talk) 18:37, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

On the GA assessments. However, you are the one in violation of OWNERSHIP and you are the one ignoring the discussions on the talk pages and at your pages' DYK nomination, as described and linked at Talk:Italian cruiser Umbria. I certainly won't violate 3rr but, then, I'm not even close to it and you are the one reverting the consensus of at minimum 4 other editors and risking your GA status. Go read your talk pages and stop with the blustering threats very much in violation of AGF. — LlywelynII 13:02, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

As a side note: it may have just been part of your general ill temper and own poor faith, but I'm curious what error you thought I was introducing to the pages. There certainly aren't any I'm aware of, but let me know. — LlywelynII 13:06, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

If I have "ill temper" and "poor faith", it's because you and others have been continually degrading the articles without an apparent interest in discussion, apart from your boilerplate posts to talk pages.
As for your errors, I have pointed out on the pages that you have apparently ignored since your initial post. You would know what your errors are if you read them or my edit summaries.
Lastly, there is no consensus anywhere that matters over the content or formatting of the articles in question. And while you have certainly skirted WP:3RR, you are very clearly edit-warring. Hence my report. Parsecboy (talk) 13:14, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Fuji-class battleship[edit]

Hi Nate, I know you reviewed this at ACR but MilHist comments are a bit thin on the ground at the FAC, so just wondering if you could give it the once-over there... Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 12:09, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I'll give it a look now. Thanks. Parsecboy (talk) 12:57, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
