Category talk:Types of ship

Name of Category:

I believe that we should change the name of this category; it should be "types of vessels". Historically the term "ship" referred to a specific type of vessel i.e. a three masted square rigged sailing vessel. The term "vessel" is more inclusive. I am planning a "types of vessels" article with linked articles regarding various types of vessels. There are 9 such articles already and I hope to add to this body of knowldge.

before you change the category, the admin group is also discussing the feasibility. (ie is it a needed change or is it getting into pedantic specifics). Further opinions posted on this talk page are encouraged! --LadyShelley 23:17, 11 January 2009 (GMT)

Thanks for your input Lady Shelley:
I have no intention of changing the category name myself. I think that is a decision that needs to be made by individuals who have been part of this community much longer than I have. My thinking is that an introductory article to the various types of vessels found in the novels would be helpful. I am turning ideas over in my mind for what the article should read like at the moment. However, I do think it would be somewhat strange if there was an article entitled "types of vessels" that was categorized at "types of ships” that’s all.
