O class Battle Cruiser Germany.[edit]

Hello Parsecboy, I know its been almost a year and I apologize for that. I have posted a new profile pic of the O class Battle cruiser for the use in the article on the O class battle Cruiser. I have been working on it more lately however it is still being mapped with small details. If it doesn't seem complete enough then I suggest to watch for updates that I plan to post real soon as in within the week. I figured if I at least posted it on the site that it would motivate me to keep the work going. I have been working on 4 large Physical models. One is a model of the Starship Enterprise from the original series that measures at 13 feet long. I have kicked Myself a bit to finish these ship illustrations though so I can get the book published on Amazon, Kendal. I'm probably losing money for not doing so. Anyway, You did a great job editing the D class article. I will work on making some angle shots also if You would like some of those. Let Me know, and I promise to not be such a stranger in the future. Haratio. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Haratio Fales (talkcontribs) 04:10, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

I added 2 angle shots, and will work more on the Model tomorrow and in the next few days. I want to finish with it somewhat as to get onto the P class ship design next. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Haratio Fales (talkcontribs) 05:16, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Not a problem at all, we all get busy with other things. Good work so far on the O class model, I've added all three images to the article (and the main image to List of battlecruisers of Germany). I'll look forward to see the work you do on it, and the P-class one as well! Parsecboy (talk) 12:14, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

I have actually laid out the P class cruiser but it is the hull with the guns in place. I need to ad the superstructure and detail the small parts and details. I have also in the last day drawn and almost finished the SpahKruiser hull. It was kind of part of the Plan Z ship projects and yet not. Even after Plan Z was canceled they were still planning to build 3 of the Spahkruzers in the final 1940 configuration. They ordered the powerplants and canceled the ships. they used the engines in other Destroyers. Anyway TY, and Ill keep sending updates, and finish the O class. It mostly needs the front railing and ballords, cleats, and the porthole work, which is somewhat done on the model, I just haven't 2D mapped it yet. Oh and the anchors and chains with the windlasses and that should be about it. I modeled the crane for the O class but I need to model a few different types in the future, along with a few spotlights, however those can be added. I need to also ad the optic doors to the 15cm guns. LOL I am getting a lot of this done so I can finish My book that I have been dragging My feet on for over a year. I could actually make some gas money if I kick myself hard enough to stay focused and do this stuff. TY again Your Wiki friend, Haratio. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Haratio Fales (talkcontribs) 20:54, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. I still need to write up the Spaehkreuzer article - haven't gotten around to it yet. You know how that goes ;) Thanks for keeping me in the loop about your projects - I bet it'll be nice to get the book finally done. Parsecboy (talk) 16:05, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Spahkruezer update.[edit]

I edited the Spahkruezer article stub slightly. I changed the 2 classes to 3 classes, as they had designed 3 even though they only seemed to show 2 on Kriegsmarine.de. I also sited Kriegsmarine.de as a source. I added a basic line illustration for the Spahkruezer 1940 design in the commons. You might not wish to put it in the article yet, as it only shows the hull from top and bottom. It is just the beginning layout template for the size layout. I have continued to detail the O class illustration also, and hope to finish that soon. I am close to finishing the E book for Kindle about the ships, I just need to keep on the ship illustrations themselves. I have thought about writing a Wiki article on the phoney plans of German ships that have cropped up on the internet forums, and in World of Warships. I do plan to write a chapter about it in My book. Let Me know what You think about that as it is not a bout anything real I don't know if it belongs in here. Anyway I just wanted to update you. Haratio.

Thanks - I really ought to get around to rewriting that article. Lately I've been working on the Austrian ironclads that fought at Lissa - I more or less finished with SMS Erzherzog Ferdinand Max (1865) this morning. We can hold off adding the image of the ship until you're done (or close to it).
I don't know if an article about the fake ships would work - probably the closest articles we have are on ships that were planned but not actually constructed. At some point someone tried to create an article on the supposed H-45, which had been created on a forum somewhere, but that got deleted. Parsecboy (talk) 20:16, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

I will work on the Illustration for the Spahkruezer. I plan to do at least 2 models, and possibly 3, as the 1939 design and the 1940 were relatively the same other than the Plane and torpedo set up. I have been spending a little time working on the O class illustration. I made that to big, but it works. When I finish the spah's and M class light cruisers, and the H class BBs and so on, Ill go back and fix the size issue on the O class. I have to model new turrets for the Spah designs due to that they were destroyer turrets and were shaped different than the Mains on the M class, or the secondaries like on Bismarck. I can write a draft about the Phoney ship designs later and see what You think. I am going to write about it in My book. The premise as an article is to state the ships, stories, and how they seemed to show up on the internet in forums, yet lack any substanciated proof. Its not that big of a deal if it cant be used on here, but it will ad an interesting chapter to My book as I can present it in a more conjectural setting. I will update and let you know as I get more done on the illustrations. As I illustrate the H class designs, that should add considerable imagery to that article. The M class was the first model I made in blender however I messed it up and need to redo it. It is one of My favorite ships as I have a 9 foot scratch built hull that I am working on also in My shop. TY again.

Re: USS Wyoming (BB-32) --: my edit of 20:56, 6 May 2016[edit]

Re: USS Wyoming (BB-32) (and now also HMS Hannibal)

Please reconsider.

The referenced source is not a personal website. This is the collection of the actual logbook entries of British ships. See http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-05-HMS_Lancaster.htm

Above the line that reads "22 September 1914" as header for the transcript, you will see the link to the original hand-written log: http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ADM_53-46000/ADM%2053-46000-013_1.jpg

You can't get much better than this, for source material. On the other hand, I have asked an acquaintance at the "Naval History & Heritage Command" to look for the deck log of the USS Wyoming to corroborate the information and to check up on the Wyoming's response to the 13-gun salute.

Respectfully, Wkboonec (talk) 20:26, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

It's a personal website that purports to host hand-transcribed ship logs. Not exactly what I'd call reliable, and there are certainly much better sources. Parsecboy (talk) 20:27, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
It's got scans of the original logbooks, so I'd have to rate it considerably higher than that. There are occasionally transcription errors, especially for ship names, but they can be pretty easily rectified by looking at the scans.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 20:58, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't see that it had the original scans. I suppose it's probably fine then. Parsecboy (talk) 12:05, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

This also applies to your rejection of my edit of the HMS Hannibal entry: ships' logs are a key source, and having compared this site's transcriptions with my own inspection of logs in the UK National Archives, they appear to be wholly reliable (with the usual transcription slips, where the original handwriting is problematic!). The more one compares archival material such as this with the 'standard' sources, the more problematic the latter become, no matter how distinguished the author (and the more one checks Burt against the archival material, the more the detail errors multiply; don't get me started on 'Conway's All the World's Fighting Ships') .... Disallowing on-line transcriptions of logs simply because they are are on a 'personal' website means that these 'standard source' errors will be perpetuated in Wikipedia for ever, as the likelihood of the UK National Archives ever putting the logs 'officially' on line is zero - I can't think of what you mean as 'much better sources' for ships' log data (especially as Wikipedia disallows 'original research', which as I understand it includes one's own inspection of archival data!).

Your edit summary[edit]

In your edit summary [4] you wrote "Please see the MoS page Llammakey linked - definite articles should not be used with ship names"

In his edit summary [5] he wrote "See also: removed definite articles before ship names per MOS:SHIPS"

OK, so where is the link?

Last time I looked at the policy (some years ago) - and I cannot find that policy now - and your "link" as you call it is like a chocolate fireguard - the policy was that the definite article should not be used before letters such as HMS or USS, but should be used before the name of the ship. However, I would not be surprised if Randy from Boise has changed this, as it is not current US Navy practice in official writing.-- Toddy1 (talk) 20:20, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Think of it like any other proper noun. I don't call you The Toddy1, I call you Toddy1. It also works for other named things. For example, "the Nike shoes", where it is used as an adjective for the shoe, however if you are talking about the company itself, you do not say "the Nike is making some great shoes these days." You say, "Nike is making some great shoes these days". Llammakey (talk) 12:15, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

M class light cruiser Germany.[edit]

    Hello. 

I wanted you to know that I added a good line profile illustration for the M class light cruiser article. I have tried to figure out how to put the illustrations in the article, however I have not figured it out, or it is fixed so I cant. If that is the case that is not a problem.

I have been working more on the illustrations so I can finish the book that I am writing about the Plan Z ships and get it published on Amazon Kindle. I rushed the M class a bit but have figured out how to expedite the pictures in Gimp and less in Blender but I want them looking good. I might have to brush up some small stuff on this one but nothing major. I have to finish the O class and upgrade it. I still have some work to do on the Spahkruezer illustration with detail. I get those done and I can start on the H class BB illustrations.

Anyway I would appreciate it if you could ad the M class illustration to that article. Ill write again as soon as I post a new illustration and finish the Spahkruezer detail so we can get that one posted. TY much Haratio. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Haratio Fales (talkcontribs) 00:47, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

No problem - and the Delaware class article looks fine to me. You might want to go back and turn off the harv field in the reference if it's not being used, since that generates an error in the template. Parsecboy (talk) 19:06, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

SMS Erzherzog Karl[edit]

Hello! I've found something weird in the article about SMS Erzherzog Karl. If he was ceded to France, why was he cruising to Britian? Could You verify this? Thank You. Mati7 (talk) 04:26, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

I'll have to check the book tonight. But it's quite possible the French sold the vessel to ship breakers in Britain - that happened pretty frequently to the ships of the former Austro-Hungarian and Imperial German navies. For instance, the ships awarded to Japan like SMS Nassau and Oldenburg never went to Japan and were instead sold to breakers in the Netherlands and Britain, respectively. Parsecboy (talk) 11:55, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Please let me know when You'll check the book. Mati7 (talk) 14:02, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Actually, I checked the article after I replied here - I don't have that specific book of Hore's, but I have another that preceded it (and should have much the same information in it). That line was added by Buggie111 (talk · contribs), who is not very active anymore. If I can't verify it from the book I have, you might try emailing him. Parsecboy (talk) 14:11, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
So, do You know anything already? Mati7 (talk) 11:09, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
I didn't check the Hore book, but I did have a look at Rene Greger's Austro-Hungarian Warships of World War I, the ship "was on passage to Toulon when she ran aground at Bizerta". The page number is 21, and the full reference is:
  • Greger, René (1976). Austro-Hungarian Warships of World War I. London: Ian Allan. ISBN 0-7110-0623-7.

Ohio User's Group[edit]

Forget where you are in Ohio, but SuperHamster (talk · contribs) is forming a Wiki group at Ohio State that you might be interested in.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 16:51, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice, Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs)!
@Parsecboy: Here's the invitation I've been sending out. We'd love for you to join.
In Columbus Ohio, several members of Wikipedia Connection are forming the Ohio Wikimedians User Group. Our goal is to expand our efforts beyond Columbus to create an organized group that promotes Wikipedia, puts together events, and forms a better local community here in Ohio. We'd love to have you on-board as one of our founding members! Being a part of the user group will allow easy communication between active Ohio editors, notifications of upcoming events in the Ohio area, and, if you're interested, the opportunity to help organize events such as edit-a-thons or workshops. If our User Group is approved in time, we plan for our first event to be a Wiknic in early July.
If interested, feel free to add yourself to the list at the bottom of our page on Meta. Also feel free to contribute to the page itself, or ask any questions you may have.
Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 17:02, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
I am in Columbus, so I'll put my name down, but between work and family, I barely have enough time to write, let alone take on more tasks, so there's probably not much I can actually help with. Thanks for the invite! Parsecboy (talk) 20:44, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Parsec! Glad you joined. No problem about not being able to help with events - but we hope you can attend a few! ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 20:52, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Trimming down of templates[edit]

Thanks for your recent edits on {{Destroyers of the Indian Navy}}, {{Submarines of the Indian Navy}}, but what is the need for the template to be trimmed down. It is a navigation template for the destroyers and submarines of the Indian Navy respectively, not of classes. There are many templates similar to this. I am not questioning you, you are one of the most experienced editors, I just wanted to know the reason. As you trimmed down the templates to the classes, but all the ships of the mentioned classes were not used by the Indian Navy, only some of them were of Indian Navy, can mentioned of classes directly be misleading? If that is the valid format please trim down the {{Corvettes of the Indian Navy}}, {{Frigates of the Indian Navy}}. Thank you. Regards, KCVelaga ☚╣✉╠☛ 01:24, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Italian cruiser Monzambano[edit]

Hello

I translated this series of articles to pl.wiki, and during DYK nomination somebody pointed that Italian cruiser Monzambano have vey strange set of machines. All other cruisers from this class are 6+3 or 4+2 boilers+steam engines. But Monzambano is 4+3 - what is quite strange because then how steam from last boiler was directed. Can you please check source just to be sure? PMG (talk) 22:21, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, it's correct according to Conway's - I'd assume the extra boiler was on the center shaft. Parsecboy (talk) 12:05, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. One of users added extra info that more or less means: Klasyfikowany też jako kanonierka torpedowa; koszt budowy wyniósł wynosił równowartość ówczesnych 61 480 funtów. as sometimes classified as torpedo gunboat. Build cost: equal to 61,480 Pound sterling from this times . Same in pl:Goito (1888) and pl:Montebello (1889) with different values. Link PMG (talk) 17:38, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, though I don't generally worry about including costs - the figures are kind of meaningless without context, and going through the trouble of adding context seems to me to be going too far off on a tangent. Also, the figures can't really be adjusted for inflation, or at least not easily. Parsecboy (talk) 18:15, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

If you can't figure that out...[edit]

I've figured that out, now. But it was not so easy.

Four ships are involved (two on each side), and it looks like all of them were already in shooting range (British ships fired at both Germans ships. But later is stated 'By this time, Bismarck had found the range to Hood', so this is confusing too) and no battle map is provided. Time indications are not always provided, and how much event in one sentence are related to the one in preceding sentence and to the one in the following sentence is not always so clear (Maybe paragraphs subdivision should be improved).

This is why I asked for elucidation. (I've not stated all the article is horribly bad. Just that something may be improved). Instead of just reverting completely (with a touch of irony), please help improve the article. --5.170.13.173 (talk) 10:30, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

But my main concern about this article is Wikipedia:Content forking. For example information in Operation Rheinübung section are dealt in very high details, as it should be suitable in Operation Rheinübung and Battle of the Denmark Strait articles. --5.170.13.173 (talk) 11:12, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
The preceding sentence states which ship Prinz Eugen was shooting at - again, if there are problems with clarity, it's not the article's fault. Parsecboy (talk) 11:18, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but the article says about many events, as I've written one can not be sure that the second sentence is talking about the same shooting of the first one.
I can not understand 'if there are problems with clarity, it's not the article's fault' at all! Clarity is a feature of the article, what else?! (A wanted feature: Wikipedia:Writing better articles and Wikipedia:The perfect article). --5.170.13.173 (talk) 11:51, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
That's how reading for context works.

Thanks - I don't know much about Flickr, but I see it says "All rights reserved" at the bottom - I'd assume that means we can't use it? It is a nice picture though. Parsecboy (talk) 13:12, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Believe Flickr users can be asked for permission, despite any 'all rights' notice, and this photo (which obviously he didn't take) is old enough to be outta copyright. I thought perhaps you were experienced in obtaining permissions. (I'm not.)
If you go to the person's Flickr member page — https://www.flickr.com/photos/69559277@N04 — and click on "More," one of the choices is "send Flickrmail." (But you might have to be a Flickr member to do that.)
I've traded a few comments with this guy, an Aussie named Steve Givens, on specific pictures, and he's always been friendly. In his profile, he describes himself as a "retired Navy photographer with an interest in old images and the restoration of them." Sounds like you (or Adam) might have something in common with him. Sca (talk) 13:48, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I've never tried uploading anything from Flickr - I usually just dig through old journals and history.navy.mil for usable images. I'll have to give that a try tonight - unfortunately the filters here at work block access to Flickr (who knows why) and I'd rather not try to do it on my phone.
Certainly Adam would with regard to the restoration work. Hopefully he'd be willing to license the image for us to use. Parsecboy (talk) 14:00, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Oh hey! That's from Von der Tann's 1909 visit if Sao Paulo is in the background. Let me know if you need any help, I took the Flickr email route for File:USS TexasSan Jacinto Park in Fog.jpg. If they're uncomfortable with the idea, they can freely license a smaller version of the photo for Commons while retaining copyright over the larger version (eg Bundesarchiv 2010 Commons mass upload).

You trying to tell me something? Parsecboy (talk) 17:35, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Yes. We're low on coords this year. If you're interested. - Dank (push to talk) 17:59, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
I've actually been thinking about it - I'm of course no longer in grad school, which was the reason I retired in the first place - I guess I was slow to adjust, given that I've been done for going on 4 years now ;) I'll put up a nomination either tonight or tomorrow. Parsecboy (talk) 18:10, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Sheesh, has it been 4 years? I'm losing track of time. Anyway ... excellent. - Dank (push to talk) 18:21, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Nope, only 3 years. I'm the one losing track of time, it seems. Parsecboy (talk) 18:39, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

B-Dienst[edit]

@Parsecboy: Thanks for your edits to my (the) B-Dienst article. They are much appreciated. Even though it is not completed, I'm glad somebody is doing some copy editing on it. I think another month or two should finish off the offensive and defensive parts, which have taken about 2 years squirrel out the information needed for it. I'll be glad when v1.0 is complete. I've got this other article on hand, which is almost finished as well. It is this it: German Naval Intelligence Service. It needs work to fix the ref system, which is half and half of the two different referencing styles, and copy-editing. I also need to expand some references. Mostly copyediting. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks. Scope creep (talk) 17:15, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

file:Connecticut-class battleship line-drawing.png[edit]

So the people who drew the sketch is not known, according to you. In the UK, for an anonymous author, works published before 30 August 1989 are free 70 years after first publication. Borvan53 (talk) 19:50, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Us not knowing who drew the image in 2016 is not the same thing as it having been published anonymously. I do recall seeing at least one edition of Brassey's that did credit an illustrator. Parsecboy (talk) 19:52, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Found an image[edit]

While you may already know of the existence of this image, there is always the possiblilty that you might not or could otherwise make better use of it than I.

Without further ado, an image of von Pöck I found

Thanks, I hadn't seen that. Is there an image description page somewhere? I can't seem to find it. Parsecboy (talk) 12:23, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
Regretfully, no. But for what it is, here's the sauce. (chat) 10:33, 9/20/2016 (CST)
Thanks for that - I think we can safely assume it's PD in the US at very least, given the age of the illustration. Parsecboy (talk) 22:03, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Parsecboy. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
