Added one and deleted those that have gotten reviewers.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 15:14, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

Addition of HMS Incomparable[edit]

Is there any specific reason HMS Incomparable isn't listed here? It was a proposal for a large british battlecruiser. -- Iazyges Consermonor Opus meum 22:11, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

It was never a serious proposal - that's why the article is in Phase V. Parsecboy (talk) 00:13, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Adding Steam/Ironclad Battleships[edit]

I was wondering if they should be added. Because there are many new articles that would be added, and many are poorly developed, it would make sense to add it as a seperate phase, if there is a decision to do it at all. -- Iazyges Consermonor Opus meum 22:21, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

We made a decision to cover only modern battleships for this project - that means just the dreadnoughts, pre-dreadnoughts, and Washington-era ships. Sturm and I have nevertheless been working on a lot of the older ships anyway (for instance the Ottoman ironclads I've been doing lately that you've reviewed a few of). Sturm has tables for most of the ironclads in a sub-page of his sandbox somewhere. 00:16, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Can this be reconsidered please? Given that the steam ironclad battleships are direct predecessors of the pre-dreadnought battleships, only a couple decades older, and were capital ships of smaller navies, it would be useful to include this type of battleship in the scope if this project; possibly as a "Phase VI".

Featured list review notification[edit]

There is a Featured List review currently underway here for List of sunken battleships. –Vami_IV✠ 08:04, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Coastal battleships[edit]

Are the coastal battleships currently in scope of this project? Most nations that couldn't afford pre-dreadnoughts or dreadnoughts included coastal battleships in their navies. If not in scope, can they please be added; possibly as a "Phase VI" or "VII"? Thanks and regards, DPdH (talk) 14:38, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

No, they're not in scope. If there was interest, they'd belong to their own project (since this one covers only the sea-going battleships and battlecruisers of basically the 1890s-1940s), but seeing as I'm just about the last active participant here now that Sturmvogel has gone AWOL, there probably isn't a point to creating one modeled on OMT. Parsecboy (talk) 18:34, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
Not sure if would be worth the huge effort of creating a dedicated competing project with this level if dedication and quality. What's the rationale of keeping this type of ship out of scope? Why not adding them in a separate phase? Thanks, DPdH (talk) 00:02, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
Frankly, it's probably not worth the effort of adding them here. The project is largely moribund at this point, since the editors doing the heavy lifting in terms of article writing have either stopped editing altogether or gone on to other things. I'm the only one left, and apart from the German ships I've already done, I don't foresee being all that interested in them. I don't have access to the sources needed to do a decent job of the Scandinavian ships, for instance. And as for scope, one has to draw the line somewhere. Coastal defense ships aren't battleships any more than armored cruisers are battlecruisers (and in cases like Blücher and Rurik, the line is far blurrier). Parsecboy (talk) 11:58, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

Cites without refs in Yamato-class battleship article[edit]

Hey guys, there are a handful of citations purporting to come from a work by H.P. Willmott in the Yamato-class battleship article, but there is no Willmott reference listed in the bibliography. The page numbers definitely do not correspond to Willmott's book The Battle of Leyte Gulf: The Last Fleet Action, so I am not sure where they are coming from exactly. You folks might be more familiar with the subject and so can fix the attributions here rather than myself just deleting the improper citations while leaving statements of fact un-sourced.
