Talk:USS Claude V. Ricketts
|WikiProject Ships||(Rated Start-class)|
I would like to have an external link included that points to The Big Nickel which is a site created to honor both the USS Biddle DDG-5 and, later, the USS Claude V. Ricketts DDG-5 as well as the crews that served aboard her. The Big Nickel is a nickname given the ship by the crews, hence the name of the website. There is currently no advertisement associated with the site and there are no plans, near or long term, to have any advertisements. There are no fees required for participation, although crew members are requested to register.
The site is used to communicate with crew members and to allow them to exchange messages and information via a crew forum. Although not yet an official association, it is anticipated that this will be discussed and passed at the next crew reunion to be held late April, 2009.
If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
- Until it is official the external linking guidelines are quite clear: Wikipedia is not a linkfarm. -MBK004 05:36, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
As far as I can tell, the link I want to include fits the requirements. It is a link to a website that relates explicitly. The site is dedicated to the USS Claude V. Ricketts/USS Biddle DDG-5 and the crews that served on board her. Can you explain to me why the link is not admissible? I see that other Wikipedia pages related to ships of the Adams class have external links to sites related to the ships. E5radarman (talk) 03:43, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
