U.S. Navy official colors[edit]

I am proposing changes to the official HTML color codes listed in the infobox. My proposed edit diff is here. My sources for the proposed HTML color code changes are found at the Navy's website: Graphics and the Navy's official Seal & Navy Brand Guide. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 06:01, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

I seem to recall going through this a year or so ago. The Navy's official colors are blue and gold. The ref that was being used is the colors for the Navy's official seal, which includes brown, red, white, black & grey. Wait for some others to comment, perhaps those from the original discussion and consensus. I would suggest holding off on the army, uscg, usmc and usaf infoboxes and official colors as well, and check on those talk pages first. Actually, it might be better to centralize the discussion on the MILHIST project talk page, to coverall all military branch pages and infoboxes - theWOLFchild 06:19, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
@Thewolfchild: So your only problem with this edit is the use of the reference from the Navy regarding the official seal colors? My question is, why can't we use the Navy Brand Guide reference right away? It's official and it spells out what the exact specifications are for the blue and gold colors. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 06:40, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
My question is, what is your problem with the infoboxes and official colors, the way they were? Why the need to change? Just curious... - theWOLFchild 06:50, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
@Thewolfchild: I am proposing these changes because I would like the main United States Navy article to include official URL references and HTML color codes found straight from the U.S. Navy itself (relative to this specific discussion). That's what I was trying to do. Maybe we should get more editors familiar with this topic involved, in the goal of reaching consensus. Or, maybe, we should take this to the main WP:MILHIST page, where we can unify the official HTML color codes/URL references for all articles about each branch of the United States Armed Forces, straight from each branch's official URL itself. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 06:56, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
@Thewolfchild: Look, I'm sorry. I don't want to engage in an edit-war with you over this topic, and I'm sorry if I came across as hostile. It wasn't my intention. At this point, I think we should get other editors involved, preferably at the talk page for WP:MILHIST, and preferably those editors who are knowledgeable and familiar with this discussion. All I want now is consensus for the official HTML color codes/URL references for each article related to the United States Armed Forces that you and I can both live with.

(edit conflict) ─────────────────────────"Maybe we should get more editors familiar with this topic involved, in the goal of reaching consensus. Or, maybe, we should take this to the main WP:MILHIST page," - yep, I was thinking the same thing. - theWOLFchild 07:04, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Everything's cool. We're doing what we're supposed to, there's no edit-warring or incivility going on. So, no worries. We'll wait for some others to comment. It might take a day or so, but it'll get worked out. Cheers - theWOLFchild 07:10, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
The U.S. Navy's official colors are blue and gold. The reference that includes white, red and brown is just describing the official colors of the seal, not the service. I will change the reference so other editors do not get confused. --Frmorrison (talk) 14:50, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
@Thewolfchild and Frmorrison: Would this edit diff be considered acceptable? Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 21:53, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
TBH, I really don't see a need to change this, or any of the other branch infoboxes. These have been examined, re-examined, debated and haggled over and finally, these infoboxes have become stable, correct, sourced and consistent. These pages have a lot of watchers and activity and it's hard enough keeping them on track as it is. This is a case of "If it ain't broke, WP:DONTFIXIT", (imho). But, see if others weigh in and support your proposed changes and if you can get consensus, and go from there. - theWOLFchild 03:59, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
As long as the color box says Blue and Gold and includes no other colors, I am fine with any revision to the color field including the one proposed. --Frmorrison (talk) 16:05, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment – IMO, White should be included. Navy sailors wear navy blue and a white cap, making white an important part of the colors. Corky 21:58, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Reply to comment - IMO, I'm glad we have a sourcing policy, so that changes like this aren't made based on "IMO". - theWOLFchild 03:59, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

ComCortDiv[edit]

At present ComCortDiv redirects to this page - or, more accurately, to United States Navy#Historical organization, which no longer exists. But there is no mention or explanation of ComCortDiv on this page, nor can I find one on any sub-pages. Davidships (talk) 03:43, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
