Line drawing[edit]

Hi,

I am the artist of the Alaska drawing used in the infobox. This is the incorrect original version I submitted in 2009. A redrawn version of Alaska is available on each individual ship's page (see CB-1 Alaska and CB-2 Guam articles). I would very much prefer it if my redrawn versions were used for the infobox on this page and the outdated drawing deleted.

Done, thanks for the note, and good to see you around again. :-) Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 07:02, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Ed. Have had a renewed interest in this class and am probably going to revise the drawings based on the new information I've come across. Thanks for replacing the drawing. 15.219.153.83 (talk) 18:40, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Anytime. I'd love to see the revised drawings when you're done, whether you upload them here or not. :-) Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 20:07, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
I've found several instances of my drawing being reproduced without the Shipbucket template around the web, and was reminded that no link to it exists on Wikipedia. I think it's for the best that all the Shipbucket work I've added to WP gets removed. I hate to do this but am tired of having to police the various naval forums for my work being used without credit. Colosseum (talk) 05:27, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Limited armor protection?[edit]

"limited armor protection against 12-inch shells"

Does this mean the ships had additional armor offering partial protection against heavier shells, or reduced armor offering less protection against standard shells? To a person not expert about the relative capabilities and historical prevalence of 12-inch guns, this wording is very ambiguous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.213.20.170 (talk) 18:28, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
