While taking a look at the list, I noticed some of the ship names are in blue italics.
Does this mean they are in the works?

If you are talking about OW ship histories from the logs, everything in blue is a link to that ship's edited history.  You can read the whole thing, spelling and all corrected. ;D

Yes, but I noticed there were some that weren't on our list of finished ones which also had their names written in italics and no name given for the editor.
So are those the ones that are still being worked on by an editor?

Problem solved! I took another look at the list at http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-LogBooksWW1.htm

It says "ships in bold italics are being edited", so I was right.

Ah, you're on that site!  Gordon is using that to keep his editing sorted. :)

When you go to "OW ship histories from the logs", the section on how to become an editor is all the way down at the bottom. Could it be moved to the top instead please?

I just noticed something confusing with HMS Achilles:
According to this link, she is completely edited:
http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-05Achilles.htm

But according to these two, only the first half has been edited:
http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-05Achilles1.htm
http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-05Achilles2.htm

What is going on here?

I think, old now-dead pages that haven't been taken off-line. 

http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-05Achilles1.htm is the first half as edited by Jil.

http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-05Achilles2.htm is the second half unedited.

http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-05Achilles.htm is a combination of the above 2; Jil has fully edited both the original parts in this one.

HI Hanibal,

Thanks for picking that up. That doesn't normally happen, but I have removed the two redundant halves from the server. Having said that it, doesn't mean it isn't lurking in cyber-space somewhere. Even now, ten year old pages come back to haunt me.

All best, Gordon

Gordon:

 I guess this might be a good place to ask. Several folks I have spoken with have asked how many of us are Editing Ship Histories/ Do you have even a rough number ? ::)

I made a rough count of 27 editors.

WOW! :o  We're even rarer that I thought! ;D

Well, with a few thousand 'transcribers' I guess there'll be work for us for a while! ;)

I better get back on Devonshire and get editing! 8)
