Clarification on italics[edit]

Good morning,

I'm looking for clarification on the italicisation of ship class names. I was under the impression that foreign words like Navigatori would be italicised even if they were not the name of a ship. This is different than say the U-boat classes, or words that have been co-opted into the English language such as proper nouns. Thanks for your time, Llammakey (talk) 10:34, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

G'day, AFAIK they are only italicised when the class name is also the name of a ship of the class. If it is a theme, like Flower-class corvette, where the ships are named after flowers, but none of them was actually named Flower, it isn't italicised. Parsecboy can confirm.

Hmm, that's a good question - based on Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Foreign_words, I'd think it wouldn't be italicized. Parsecboy (talk) 09:49, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks guys. I will fix the navboxes then. Llammakey (talk) 12:16, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Merger discussion disrupted[edit]

Fellow editor, as the administrator who protected the article Turkish Croatia, and subsequently accepted my request for editing by submitting a merger template, I am contacting you because I would like to examine the possibility of extending the protection, at least until the ensuing merger discussion and its disruption has been resolved. Predictably, and as I have already hinted at in my initial post here under the Talk:Turkish Croatia titled section (above), the editors mentioned in it eventually (the day after my post here) resorted to requesting assistance of like-minded people outside English Wikipedia, namely by placing couple of inciting request at Croatian Wikipedia, to which few responded in attempt to give boost to their (systemic) biased POV by means of "voting" on the merger. And, not only that they voted more then once(!) each, they also, apparently, using WP:Single-purpose accounts as well.
I will not insert any "diff's" here from the discussion page or from Croatian Wikipedia, as it would be best if you decide to look at the whole thread there, which is not at all lengthy so you can make really quick observation by yourself. Few comments with linked evidences are provided by another dedicated fellow editor, and one by me, at: Talk:Bosanska_Krajina#Merger_discussion; and if you are really in a hurry, or if you are, for any reason, time limited, you can skip through my initial proposition post there, which is the largest consisting of few paragraphs.--౪ Santa ౪99° 18:06, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
