Do you want to tag that IP talk page for edit warring or should I? Nyth63 18:29, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

USS Donald Cook[edit]

I've made a request at "ships" for an administrator to put a long term protection on that page. Since it is apparently the target of a perhaps organized, state propaganda effort to insert ridiculous stuff (Yeah, how would they know if the ship went blind?) it should be treated as a prominent politician's biography that is under smear campaigns would be. Palmeira (talk) 19:29, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

That would be fine. It's been over a year since the incident so I'm surprised that there is still an effort to push that POV over there. It's hard to find sources on the topic since western media just ignored the claims as ridiculous propaganda. The only way we could prove it's true is if they had attacked and seriously damaged the ship. Failing that, it's a he said-she said electronic warfare situation. WP:Red Flag I think covers it, Exceptional claims require exceptional sources, especially the part about the crew resigning after the incident. --Dual Freq (talk) 19:59, 26 May 2015 (UTC)


Halfstar Hires.png The Half Barnstar
Thank you for your many common sense edits to the USS PC-552 article, making the previous well-intentioned but malformed work more worthy of its subject. For improving the page, I award you with appropriate partial credit (shared with User:Ad Orientem) and this very equally shared barnstar. BusterD (talk) 22:20, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, much appreciated. --Dual Freq (talk) 22:59, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Well deserved. BusterD (talk) 23:27, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Lightning Rod Photo[edit]

Hi, regarding my add of the lightning rod photo, I spent the better part of today dealing with Permissions--Wikipedia Commons/ (Stephen Philbrick/Ticket#: 2015053110008861). I was given the green light to use the photo and am wondering why you think it is promotional? If I went through the proper channels, what is the problem? My name/website appears nowhere in association with the image. Thank you, David

I have no issue with copyright, but how do you think it looks when someone is aggressively adding and re-adding images of their own artwork (which they happen to be selling) to a number of pages? It looks to me like you are trying to promote your art on wikipedia. --Dual Freq (talk) 00:34, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm new here as of yesterday. Talking with two other editors, as well as the person at Permissions, all of whom complimented the work and encouraged me to use it, I didn't feel I was "aggressively" adding anything. I apologize for all the edits as I am new to this. I don't understand how any of these pics are promotional as my name/website don't appear in any of the articles. Thanks again. Best regards, David

Todd Pacific Shipyards, Los Angeles Division[edit]

You might consider creating a navbox for ships built at this shipyard. See {{Lithgows ships}} for an example. Mjroots (talk) 22:31, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

I'll take a look. Thanks. --Dual Freq (talk) 00:17, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
{{Los Angeles SB&DDC and Todd, Los Angeles ships}} is a start, but I wasn't sure what to use for a title since the yard had 3 different names. I'll leave it alone for a bit in case anyone thinks it needs to be renamed. --Dual Freq (talk) 02:08, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
I've tweaked a few wikilinks to remove the ship prefix. Wouldn't alphabetical order be a better way of presenting the ships? Mjroots (talk) 04:17, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

OK, that's probably better. I was going for hull sequence / build order, but I suppose it reads like I just picked the order at random. Chronological might be wrong anyway since hull 7 might not have been done before hull 8 anyway. --Dual Freq (talk) 21:04, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you SO much for your advice![edit]

Good Morning Dual Freq,

Thank you for your kinds words and advice. My confusion comes in with this: My CEO started another company, Phoenix Nuclear Labs, which is on Wikipedia. As you can see form their page, I patterned my draft, with their admin's assistance, after theirs. Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it.
