Thanks for taking this on. I wonder if you have lost track of it? Parsecboy (talk) 13:58, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Rate Attribute Review Comment
1. Well written:
1a. the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct. See comments below
1b. it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation. No MOS issues except those identified in comments below
2. Verifiable with no original research:
2a. it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline. needs a couple of isbn and location fields populated
2b. all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines. Well cited to a few authoritative sources, more than sufficient given this was one of the more obscure ships of the Kriegsmarine
2c. it contains no original research. No OR in evidence.
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic. Good coverage
3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style). Good balance between technical information and summary style
4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each. Fine.
5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute. Very stable, only recent incremental improvements
6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:
6a. images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content. no non-free content included
6b. images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions. all check out
7. Overall assessment. passed and listed


  • "They were supplied with between 1,080 and 1,500 rounds of ammunition" - This begs the question "why the range?"
    • Presumably changes over the course of her career - perhaps peacetime versus wartime loadouts.
  • "and four of 7-cylinder"
    • Fixed.
  • when were the original He 60 floatplanes replaced?
    • I haven't seen anything specific (and in fact, the only mention of even a general timeframe is in Whitley, who simply says "by the outbreak of war." The Ar 196 was introduced into service in November 1938, so apparently sometime between then and September 1939.
  • if her tubes were amidships, how it is the aft ones were removed? A bit confusing.
    • Well, there are four triple launchers, two on each side of the ship - the pair located further aft were the ones removed. You can see the arrangement in the USN drawing - the tubes almost directly below the aircraft catapult were the ones removed.
  • "her... floatplane" suggest "one of her... floatplanes"
    • Done.
  • did the final AAA plan get implemented?
    • No, and I guess I forgot to make that clear when I wrote it. Fixed now.
  • Torpedo, Arado Ar 196 and Trondheim are overlinked.
    • All fixed.

more to come. Peacemaker67 (send... over) 14:55, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

  • where is Libau?
    • Added.
  • One ref is rendered Maryland, the others MD
    • Fixed.
  • suggest you add the location field to the journal sources
    • Added.
  • should Blitz be redlinked? What type of ships was she?
    • After doing a bit of digging, it turns out it was the former Imperial-era torpedo boat SMS V185, which was retained after Versailles and converted into a remote-control vessel (presumably for experimental purposes).
  • suggestion only: 13 digit ISBNs
    • My understanding (or at least what I have been told in the past at FAC) is that books that predate the 13-digit number should keep their original ISBNs, since they can be found by the 10-digit numbers just as easily.
  • ISBN for Warship
    • Warship is a journal, not a book, so it doesn't have an ISBN. Best I can do is add the oclc number.

Review completed, on hold for seven days for the above points to be addressed. Regards, Peacemaker67 (send... over) 03:28, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
