Here's our current list of outstanding reviews in need of attention:

These GANs need a reviewer:

Really plowing through these American pre-dreadnoughts... Parsecboy (talk) 13:53, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Add a few more. Parsecboy (talk) 12:25, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Related, but non-BB articles for review[edit]

FACs, FLCs, and ACRs:



In a completely useless post for you all, I rediscovered bahamut's 8-ball today. It's still pretty relevant. :-) Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 06:43, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I found that again a few weeks ago and was looking through it :) Parsecboy (talk) 14:18, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

ONI drawings[edit]

This is worth mining - the scans aren't exactly the best, but they are high-res and cover ships that aren't available at the Hyperwar link Nick found a few years back. Parsecboy (talk) 14:19, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Scratch that, this has better scans. Parsecboy (talk) 20:39, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

'Super battleship'?[edit]

Take a look at Super battleship (warship)... I'm thinking it should be AfD'd, but not sure. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 18:39, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Yep, AfD is where it should be bound. It's almost all OR as I'm not aware of any RS discussion about these.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 19:19, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
We can also consider redirecting the page to point to the so called "Super Dreadnought" era of battleship construction, while moving what little material we can salvage from the article to any battleship article discussing battleships that were known to have been in the design or planning stages when the battleship's era ended after WWII.

@The ed17, Sturmvogel 66, and TomStar81: (wow, all two-digit username endings), this page is still out and about, what became of that? ResMar 23:51, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Ah, thanks for the ping. I've redirected it to Super Battleship. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 07:34, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

DANFS errors[edit]

Hey all - if you're working with DANFS and notice any errors in the entries, please post them here. I've been in contact with the director of the NHHC over some minor issues I found in the DANFS article on USS Michigan (BB-27). They've been working on improving DANFS and they'd appreciate any help we can give them. Parsecboy (talk) 16:02, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

A uniform url structure so that we can modify the DANFS templates rather than edit all pages that refer to DANFS. Sort of like how {{navsource}} works would seem ideal.

Giuseppe Garibaldi-class cruiser[edit]

The ten armored cruisers of this class have at least three different types of boilers and 3-4 different armament configurations; rather than try to present all that info in paragraphs, I think it would be easier to add that info to a massive table that would also collect original name, final name, and owning navy as well the standard building data. I'd still cover the usual information in the description, the table would just let me show what exact configuration each ship had rather than have to write it all out. Alternatively, I could add a sentence for each ship covering that info, but that would virtually force me to dedicate a paragraph for each ship rather than lumping similar histories together as I'd prefer to do (if for no other reason than to cut down on repetition). What do y'all think?--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 19:41, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

I'd agree with the table method for simplicity's sake. Trying to write that in prose would be a pretty brutal for a reader. WP:WHENTABLE tends to agree with your preferred approach too. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 20:02, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I think that would probably be the least-cumbersome way to go. Parsecboy (talk) 18:56, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
