It seems unlikely that the full load displacement is only 1000 tons more than normal displacement. Also date (1919-2012) is obviously wrong.Pennsy22 (talk) 06:09, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
After checking Janes and Friedman, the displacement appears to be correct. Parsecboy appears to have corrected to date problem.Pennsy22 (talk) 13:47, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Indeed - if you had bothered to check the source first, we could have avoided that. Parsecboy (talk) 13:53, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Some of us don't carry all of our reference books with us all the time, I was pointing out things that looked wrong so they could be looked at, a simple acknowledgement here would have cleared them up.Pennsy22 (talk) 14:06, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
There seems to be a bit of instability with the article just recently, but not enough to fail the criteria. The article looks to be in good shape, the prose is ok, sources seem reliable and the article is well cited. It is stable enough, covers the subject well, and there are no issues with plagiarism or copyright. A few nitpicks, mainly with inconsistencies between the infobox and body:
the beam dimensions are a bit off, using a decimal for feet in the infobox instead of inches, and the conversion is slightly different
the displacement conversions are different between the infobox and body
the speed conversions are reversed in between the infobox and body for some reason (not a biggie, but I thought I'd mention it)
the range isn't in the infobox
the crew numbers don't gel between the infobox and body
the lower range of the belt in the infobox isn't supported in the body
the conning tower armor doesn't gel between the infobox and body
drop the hyphen from "early-1945"
a query about the June 1924 turret explosion. If it exploded, wouldn't that have caused some of the crew casualties? Maybe I don't understand how these things work...
Expanded for clarification
drop the initial caps from "(Initially identified..."
in the Refs, there is a formatting prob with Man of War, probably an errant space
the licensing for the infobox image should probably note the assumption that the author was a US Navy employee, also the source link is broken
Not sure what is needed, may be fixed

amidships, lattice mast and San Francisco are overlinked
Yeah, they look good to me. Thanks! Parsecboy (talk) 12:50, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Me too. I'd just suggest that you specify the number of officers separately from men in the body, as they are separated in the infobox. Passing. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 22:39, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
I'd have thought reverting the first tag and fixing the second would have done as much. Parsecboy (talk) 14:29, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
I'm planning to add info from Friedman's battleship book, pp. 402-403, about Mississippi's armament as AG-128 to the "Postwar service" subsection. I also plan to mention there that in some references she has the hull classification symbol "EAG-128". I do not plan any changes to the infobox. Just a heads-up in case there is some reason this info isn't already there. RobDuch (talk) 04:54, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
Go right ahead - I probably just forgot to look there. Parsecboy (talk) 14:43, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
