I recommend that you add the vessel type to the class name when you define a ship page. For example [[Broadsword class]]. The current class is a "Mercenary Cruiser," but it is not unreasonable that there could be a Battleship class with the same name. If the Broadsword class page was actually "Broadsword Class Mercenary Cruiser" it would be easier to differentiate between "Broadsword Class Battleship." It would also help with searches because the ship type would be in the title, and there would be less confusion when multiple ship types are in the page body, as with the page [[Cruiser]].

Notes (2014)

I recommend that you add the vessel type to the class name when you define a ship page. For example Broadsword class.

  • The current class is a "Mercenary Cruiser," but it is not unreasonable that there could be a Battleship class with the same name. If the Broadsword class page was actually "Broadsword Class Mercenary Cruiser" it would be easier to differentiate between "Broadsword Class Battleship."
  • It would also help with searches because the ship type would be in the title, and there would be less confusion when multiple ship types are in the page body, as with the page Cruiser.
