Articles in need of reviewers[edit]

You can tell that school's started as our noms have significantly decreased. Anyway, here's our current list of outstanding reviews in need of attention:

These GANs need a reviewer:

Once more.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 20:06, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Related, but non-BB articles for review[edit]

FACs, FLCs, and ACRs:



I may be biased because I am improving the Fore River Shipyard article as I write this, but would it be a crazy idea to add shipyards to Phase V? Kevin Rutherford (talk) 06:20, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Seems like a great idea.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 06:55, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I'll start adding the ones that built battleships and battlecruisers! Kevin Rutherford (talk) 19:45, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
I just added 46 yards, although there are probably over fifty out there, with some not being created yet. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 21:33, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject Barnstar[edit]

Having been motivated by Pine above I would like to congratulate Operation Majestic Titan myself. Not a day goes by that it doesn't seem like some capital ship related article has reached featured status on the main page. Why just today it is the battleship Sevastopol. I am not aware of another WikiProject which has been so visibly successful. My hat is off to you guys. --Noha307 (talk) 03:51, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Noha! And if you look right now, you'll see another article from one of our editors in the DYK section (though admittedly, it's a bloody bird farm). Parsecboy (talk) 13:10, 3 March 2014 (UTC)


In a completely useless post for you all, I rediscovered bahamut's 8-ball today. It's still pretty relevant. :-) Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 06:43, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I found that again a few weeks ago and was looking through it :) Parsecboy (talk) 14:18, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

ONI drawings[edit]

This is worth mining - the scans aren't exactly the best, but they are high-res and cover ships that aren't available at the Hyperwar link Nick found a few years back. Parsecboy (talk) 14:19, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Scratch that, this has better scans. Parsecboy (talk) 20:39, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

'Super battleship'?[edit]

Take a look at Super battleship (warship)... I'm thinking it should be AfD'd, but not sure. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 18:39, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Yep, AfD is where it should be bound. It's almost all OR as I'm not aware of any RS discussion about these.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 19:19, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
We can also consider redirecting the page to point to the so called "Super Dreadnought" era of battleship construction, while moving what little material we can salvage from the article to any battleship article discussing battleships that were known to have been in the design or planning stages when the battleship's era ended after WWII. TomStar81 (Talk) 02:05, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
@The ed17, Sturmvogel 66, and TomStar81: (wow, all two-digit username endings), this page is still out and about, what became of that? ResMar 23:51, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Ah, thanks for the ping. I've redirected it to Super Battleship. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 07:34, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

DANFS errors[edit]

Hey all - if you're working with DANFS and notice any errors in the entries, please post them here. I've been in contact with the director of the NHHC over some minor issues I found in the DANFS article on USS Michigan (BB-27). They've been working on improving DANFS and they'd appreciate any help we can give them. Parsecboy (talk) 16:02, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

A uniform url structure so that we can modify the DANFS templates rather than edit all pages that refer to DANFS. Sort of like how {{navsource}} works would seem ideal.
