Section headings[edit]

Your reason for reverting my edit, "(no reason to remove the definite article, and HFDF is a proper noun)", goes against the consistency of the article for "High-frequency direction finding" and the Wikipedia Manual of Style, which dictates:

"Do not use A, An, or The as the first word (Economy of the Second Empire, not The economy of the Second Empire), unless it is an inseparable part of a name (The Hague) or it is part of the title of a work (A Clockwork Orange, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien)."

MeanMotherJr (talk) 19:04, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

The relevant section of the MOS (i.e., MOS:SECTIONS) states that "The provisions in § Article titles (above) generally apply to section headings as well", italics mine. There are relatively few hard and fast rules on Wikipedia, and certainly very few when it comes to formatting content.
As for the title of the article, it's wrong - the term is a proper noun, and therefore should be capitalized. See for instance here, here, and here for starters. Parsecboy (talk) 19:30, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 11, 2015, Part Zwei[edit]

Nate, I've recently decided to cut back on specific dates at TFA except in cases where the reader is supposed to infer some meaning from the date. So, for tomorrow's TFA, I'm going with "she was laid down and launched in 1905 and completed the next year". Is that a problem? - Dank (push to talk) 12:34, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Oh yeah, that's perfectly fine - no need to have anything specific about the construction details unless it's an anniversary of a launch or something. Parsecboy (talk) 13:05, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of U.S. Navy hull numbers[edit]

Hi, it is rather irritating that you delete the hull numbers on articles of USN ships that have names that have been used only once. The hull number is an integral part of a ship's name. And, if you go on and delete it from any smaller ship (destroyers, etc.), I think this is not useful at all, since the hull number gives everyone an explanation on what type of ship it is. Could you explain your reasoning, please. Cheers Cobatfor (talk) 22:35, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

First of all, and most importantly, hull numbers are not part of any ship's name. Many vessels have had their numbers changed throughout their careers. Secondly, the hull numbers are only useful for a small slice of our readers - namely, experts who are already familiar with the ships in question. Thirdly, Wikipedia naming conventions specify that we do not disambiguate article titles when there are no ambiguous topics. Parsecboy (talk) 23:56, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
@Cobatfor: - I assume you haven't seen my reply? Parsecboy (talk) 00:48, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Are you now planning to delete the hull numbers from hundreds of USN ships? Cobatfor (talk) 21:29, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Only those that have unambiguous names, as I come to them. You might be interested in knowing about this recent discussion, which basically supported what I've been doing, and actually suggests that we ought to get rid of hull numbers altogether. Parsecboy (talk) 23:46, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Well, using the launch dates would be better than nothing at all, in my opinion. I admit, that the USN-hull numbers are not consistent in itself, like DDG-1000 or SSN-21. Also, a designation for airplanes like F/A-18 should not exist (according to the US-system it should be the FA-18, funny it is that the EA-18 is not the E/A-18). Maybe, you could at least add the launching date, so everything has not to be changed again, afterwards. Or, you might not have time to change it, anyway... :-) Cheers Cobatfor (talk) 13:44, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

SMS Mainz[edit]

The inscription on the Mainz memorial says 168 "Kameraden" lost their lives in the sinking. Puzzling. Sca (talk) 15:24, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

That is odd - one would think that the number of survivors rescued would be easy to count. I'll have to look around, but I did notice that the 89 fatalities figure was there before I rewrote the article. Parsecboy (talk) 17:26, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Oops, I mean 163. I don't know if the fact it's a Nazi-era monument (1939) would have any bearing on the discrepancy. Sca (talk) 17:47, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
That might be the case - if they wanted to exaggerate the death toll to increase anti-British sentiment, I suppose. Osborne's The Battle of Heligoland Bight also has the 89 deaths figure, as does the Der Spiegel article you added. I'll check Hildebrand et. al. later, but I'd think if they had given a different number, I'd have included the discrepancy. Parsecboy (talk) 12:24, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Beware of User:Pam-javelin[edit]

Hi, Parsecboy, just letting you know that there is a woman's liberationist using the handle User:Pam-javelin, who is altering any article on warships to gender neutral. This user has repeatedly removed "Her/She" from the article HMS Rodney (29) and seems determined to push her sexist agenda on the traditional use of Her/She in Warship articles. I have warned her to refrain from vandalising this and all other such articles or I will report her to an Admin, which I am doing now. Thanks.The Dart (talk) 15:59, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Sorry to annoy you again, but "she's back" edit waring at HMS Rodney. Can you please block her?The Dart (talk) 17:19, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
I'll keep an eye on the situation - if she reverts again I'll take care of it. But you might check your last edit on the article, it looks like you accidentally reverted yourself. Parsecboy (talk) 17:24, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, but I don't think I did revert myself as it was reverted by an unlogged user and I have been logged in for over 2 hours. But?The Dart (talk) 17:33, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Well yeah, but your edit took the she/her out. Parsecboy (talk) 17:42, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
I can't understand how that happened. I reverted a revert from 220.253.115.75 which has disappeared from the history, it says 2 intermediate edits from 2 users. Also there was a comment from her added to the edit which only appears in my own talk page, but not hers or anywhere else? Was there an edit conflict? Have I been hacked?The Dart (talk) 17:56, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Huh, that's odd - I've had similar things happen in the past, where it looked like I was reverting something but the edit went through wrong. Sometimes the servers do strange things. Parsecboy (talk) 12:27, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Nate, I traced the IP address of 220.253.115.75 and Google earthed it. It's in the same city as me and uses the same provider as me (iinet.com.au). I even found the street address, its about 10 Km's from me. All the best, Bill.The Dart (talk) 16:58, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Italian GANs and stray article[edit]

Depending on if I need to finish the reviews for this round of the GA Cup, I may hold off on reviewing them until the end of the month. Also can you take a look at HMS Zealous (1919)? She's the only cancelled V and W-class destroyer that's got an article and I'm not even sure if she was laid down or not.

late-war AA armament of Z5 Paul Jacobi[edit]

I'm bring this up to speed and am hoping that HRS has some details about how much of the Barbara AA refit had been completed when she came out of refit in November '44. While it's entirely possible that I've missed things in Whitley, I've only found her end-of-war outfit, which is cool, but I'm hoping for more. Koop & Schmolke say that she received her 37mm guns on 20 December and then received additional guns in February '45, which raises the question of what she did get during the refit. Seems like just 20mm guns, but whether they were twins, singles or Flakvierling(s)? Anything in HRS on the matter?--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 19:42, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

I'll have a look in the morning - have a meeting after work that's going to chew up any extra time I'd normally have. Parsecboy (talk) 20:37, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
No rush. Thanks in advance.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 21:38, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
Doesn't look like it's going to be particularly helpful - they give the same 20 December date for the 37mm guns, but don't mention anything in the narrative about specific changes during the refit. In the table, it simply says "From 1944...up to 8 Flak-2cm". Parsecboy (talk) 12:28, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

USS Wichita (CA-45)[edit]

I understand that you have done work on this page. My edits were well thought out in an attempt to make the page better. I appreciate your concern for the article but I do not fell that all of my edits were in error. I went back and editted out some of the things I added to the info box, although I feel that they should be there. The reason I changed it to 6 boilers is because of the 4 pages I found two of them had the number of boilers listed and they both said 6. I have changed it back to 8. I also feel that the info box should have as much info as possible because some people might not take the time to read through an article to find certain information. Please feel free to discuss with me if there are changes you still don't agree with, I'm not doing this to give disinformation. Pennsy22 (talk) 04:25, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I wrote the article. Here are the problems. First, infoboxes should be very brief summaries of the article. Things like the ship sponsor or the ICS code should generally not be present. This is not the first time someone has told you this. Conway's All the World's Fighting Ships has 8 boilers - moreover, 6 boilers on 4 shafts doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Piping "German" to Nazi Germany or "Japan" to Empire of Japan are low value links - they don't add much of anything to readers' comprehension. And lastly, swapping out piped links for the {{ship}} template isn't particularly necessary, as it's simply visible on our end, not the readers'. Parsecboy (talk) 10:05, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
I think that you're wrong on how people read the infoboxes as I've received several complaints that ship infoboxes are, in general, too long and visually dominate the article. So I've been paring down the info that I put into infoboxes to shorten them as much as possible. Forex, is the model name or caliber length of weapon really necessary if the weapon is linked? For the average reader, I believe not; they're certainly less important than the bore diameter which most people generally understand.
Here's the text from Template:Infobox ship begin/Usage guide#Infobox ship characteristics: "Remember that the infobox, like a lead section, is meant to be a summary of the information that is provided in the article itself. To this end, avoid excessive detail or accuracy in the infobox; if required, elaborate in the article body." Your habit of cramming as much info into the infobox as possible flagrantly violates this guideline. For ships that received a major reconstruction like HMS Renown, I use a second, dated, infobox that usually only lists the parameters have changed from when it was built. All of the other changes like the constantly evolving light AA armament are covered in the main body in more detail than the infobox can provide.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 14:06, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
First off, why are these items in the infoboxes if they aren't to be used. Second, I told you I was wrong about the boilers. And third, you're looking at these articles as if they are only being read by "experts". If someone reads it and they see that we were fighting Germany, France, Italy and Japan they are going to be confused. Having links to who the countries were at the time of the war helps them understand the article better. And I'm sorry Sturmvogel 66, I know I didn't agree with you on Milwaukee, and I understand you guys feel some ownership with these articles, but that doens't mean that other peoples ideas should be totally discounted. I look at infoboxes as a quick reference to the ship in question. If I want to know what a ships dimmensions or armament were I'm going to look at the infobox way before reading through the entire article. Pennsy22 (talk) 05:25, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
Template:Infobox ship career"This ship infobox supports a very large number of fields, including some specialty fields that will rarely be used. Some fields simply don't make sense in some cases. Some different sets of code have been prepared using only the most common fields. Select the most appropriate set below and copy and paste the entire code to the top of a ship article, then fill in as many fields as possible. Empty fields should generally be kept so that a future editor can fill them in unless they make no sense for the ship in question." Template:Infobox ship begin/Usage guide#Infobox ship characteristics: "However, the information and details should not be "dumbed down" too much and obvious details should be avoided." I'm not trying to fight, I just think you guys aren't looking at these articles from a Novice point of view.Pennsy22 (talk) 05:44, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Ownership of content Just a reminder. Both of you are in violation of this.Pennsy22 (talk) 08:21, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
It's interesting that you think you're making articles more relevant to non-experts when you're trying to insert far too much specialist information into infoboxes. Does a general reader have any idea what the significance of the ship sponsor is? Or what those little colorful squares mean? Cluttering the infobox with generally useless information obscures the main points readers should be able to draw from it.
Here's the issue with linking Nazi Germany or Empire of Japan - readers will either know it or they won't. In the case of the latter, knowing what regime ruled the country in question will add zero useful information to this article. What difference does it make to a sentence about a cruiser sinking an aircraft carrier what the government in Tokyo was? Moreover, the Manual of Style generally prohibits linking these kinds of terms, unless there is some special relevance. Parsecboy (talk) 10:38, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Inserting ((ship)) template[edit]

To your previous discussion about Wichita, I just wanted your opinion on the use of the ship template. I go around swapping out the piped links to a) prevent people from inserting seven hundred ident numbers into the articles, b) if the format ever changes about how ship links should be presented, I thought it would be easier to just change a template than go through every piped wikilink in every article.

That being said, if it's preferable that it shouldn't be done, I'll stop. However, if it's ok, I'll keep continuing. Llammakey (talk) 11:30, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

My point was that for readers, it's essentially value neutral - that doesn't mean it shouldn't be done, but it's not something I'm going to worry about when reverting his other, more problematic changes. I'd say go ahead and keep doing them. Parsecboy (talk) 11:44, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Re Umberto-class ironclad[edit]

Please check diff because there is a problem at Re Umberto-class ironclad#General characteristics and machinery (see "convert: unknown unit"). The implication of the edit seems to be that there was some confusion about whether values were metric tons (MT) or long tons (LT). The problem is that "{{convert|13673|MT|sp=us}}" was changed to "{{convert|13058|13673|MT|LT|sp=us}}". I would fix it by removing "|13673" but I can't work out where 13058 came from, so it would be better for you to look at it, thanks. Johnuniq (talk) 11:06, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

It was missing the |to parameter. Thanks for letting me know. Parsecboy (talk) 11:09, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

IP editor violating 3RR[edit]

181.64.192.245 has been reverting my changes cleaning up the Huascar (ship) article and has broken the 3RR rule. Can you check it out whenever you get a chance?--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 04:41, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

I blocked the IP for 31 hours and protected the page for a week. Huascar is probably a focal point of nationalist POV—be careful! Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 05:42, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Battle of Kinburn (1855)[edit]

Parsecboy, you recently fixed the assessment on Talk:Battle of Kinburn (1855). Just a query: what difference does using "B" instead of "start" for the class parameter make? Hamish59 (talk) 21:43, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

If you have your preferences set to display the assessment on the article page itself (which I do), it still shows "Start-class" even though the template produces a B-class rating. Not all that significant, really, but I figured I'd fix it anyway. Thanks for assessing the article, by the way. Parsecboy (talk) 21:59, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
OK, understood. I usually leave the assessments as "start" because it does not show up as any different on my setup. Good article: covers the subject very well, something I knew nothing about. Hamish59 (talk) 22:02, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, it was something I just stumbled upon the other day - a minor but nonetheless noteworthy engagement that deserved an article better than the one it had. Parsecboy (talk) 00:02, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Link[edit]

This revert is not supported by WP:OVERLINK. I went to that page to see that ship, only to find the battle it was in was not linked. I, and I'm sure others as well, don't want to hunt around to see if there is a link, somewhere. An additional link in a different section is permissible, if it is helpful, which is the case here. You're am admin... you should know this. Just as you know you shouldn't be gearing up for an edit war.

There are more important things to attend to anyway. If you want to be helpful, have look at the contribs for this editor. All made to ship articles, and almost all disruptive. I've gone back from present day to mid-November and have had to revert or manually fix dozens of edits. I have found where dozens more have already been reverted by other editors who regularly maintain ship-related articles. Feel free to pitch in and help clean up this guy's mess. - theWOLFchild 12:06, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

If you had any experience at FAC, you would know that is not the case. Any links highlighted by the dupelink checker are routinely removed.
And to warn me about starting an edit-war after having reverted twice now is not particularly good form. Parsecboy (talk) 12:28, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
I have provided perfectly good reasoning for the link, supported by policy. You cited wp:overlink, which didn't support your revert. Now your attacking my "experience"... which is "not particularly good form". You've cited FAC, which is irrelevant here. And, you've just made your third revert within the hour, while a discussion is still active. Like I said, you're an admin, you're supposed to know better. I made the change simply to improve the article, which it does. You're sticking to your guns on this because... why? Pride? Let it go already.
I've brought to your attention a much more important matter. Are you gonna help with that or what? I've gone all the way back to the beginning of November, and starting to make my way into October. There is a lot of cleaning up needed here. - theWOLFchild 12:38, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Read the entire section. You'll find this line: "Generally, a link should appear only once in an article" (emphasis in original).
FAC is irrelevant here? We're talking about a Featured Article. Your change does not improve the article per established policy and practice.
I'm supposed to know better because I'm an admin? You're no newbie - you're supposed to know better than to start an edit war. I'm sticking to my guns on this because I'm right and you're wrong. Do as you say - let it go already.
I wouldn't exactly call Dallas's edits disruptive - perhaps unhelpful in some (and maybe even most) cases, but certainly not malicious. In any event, I have reverted and/or repaired his or her edits as I've come across them. Parsecboy (talk) 14:36, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Generally, a link should appear only once in an article (emphasis is mine). "Generally" certainly doesn't come across as rock-solid support for your case.
  • Your change does not improve the article per established policy and practice., no... just per you. It's a ship class article. If readers go to it to read about a particular ship, like I did, they won't find a link to the most important part of that ship's history, and they shouldn't have to hunt for it. This is why we have links. There is absolutely no harm what-so-ever to adding that link. The policy is expressly written to allow for additional links when the situation calls for it, such as this one.
  • you're supposed to know better than to start an edit war. - and yet you have more reverts here than I. Look to your own actions before criticizing. You're the admin, and as such you're held to a higher standard. Right now you are not meeting that standard.
  • I'm sticking to my guns on this because I'm right and you're wrong. - wow. Even for you that is shockingly arrogant and uncollegial. There is no absolute "right" or "wrong" here... just what is best for the article. This is about the article, not you.
  • I wouldn't exactly call Dallas's edits disruptive... - ffs, you'll argue anything, won't you? I didn't say they were deliberate or vandalism, this is a competency issue and they are disruptive due to the sheer number that have had to be reverted. I only mention them here because I'm at loss to figure why you put so much effort fighting such a minor point when there is clearly more important issues needing attending to. I've now gone thru a majority of his total contribs and have yet to find a single revert by you. But, nevermind... just keep following me around and make sure every article I touch is the way you like it. - theWOLFchild 06:38, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes, generally. Which means one should have a good reason to ignore the rule. Repeating a link 3 paragraphs down is not a good reason.
There's no harm? The article, a Featured Article, is expected to adhere to the Manual of Style. Your edit moves the article out of compliance with the MoS. That is obviously not an improvement.
"Look to your own actions before criticizing" - if only you could have internalized that bit of condescending advice before you had started talking! But, now it's my turn - calling other editors arrogant is shockingly uncivil and uncollegial. Though we don't have a policy that prohibits arrogance, real or imagined, we do have a policy that prohibits personal attacks. If you cannot find it in yourself to bite your tongue, I'll kindly ask you to end this discussion.
It's not arrogance, it's a simple statement of fact. You have a faulty understanding of the MoS based on a shallow reading meant to support your position. Tell me, how many articles have you taken through FAC? Do you have any experience with what the community expects from a Featured Article?
Couldn't find me fixing and/or reverting Dallas's edits? Try their most recent edits here and my correction. Anyway, no, I wouldn't call their edits wholly disruptive. There's nothing wrong with this, this, or this (and that was just a cursory look through their most recent dozen edits or so). Parsecboy (talk) 11:08, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
I'll kindly ask you to end this discussion. - and that's exactly what I'll do. This "discussion" (as you put it) is pointless. You preach WP:NPA, when clearly you need to be reading up on WP:OWN and about a half-dozen other policies. You clearly must have things your way, and your way only, and I have no further interest in suffering you absurd intransigence. - theWOLFchild 20:00, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. But just to be clear, it's not my way, it's the community's way - whether you recognize that is not my job. You have yourself a nice day. Parsecboy (talk) 20:28, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
