Why was the list of commanding officers removed?[edit]

Why was this content removed? I would argue the list of CO's is relevant to the history of any ship. Eric Cable  !  Talk  12:27, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

There was a link added to the edit summary to explain the removal. Basically, these lists were discussed at WT:SHIPS and the consensus was to remove them. The article is about the ship, not her COs. Any notable COs from these lists (ones with their own articles) were moved into the prose of the article (if they weren't already noted there) at the appropriate point in the ship's history. Non-notable COs were simply removed. - theWOLFchild 20:13, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Well that, in my opinion, is stupid. Eric Cable  !  Talk  14:23, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
Well, thank you for such a well thought out and articulate response. Have a nice day. - theWOLFchild 14:37, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
