Aye Carumba! Where did this suddenly emerge!

That's a quite comprehensive list Mr Bonaparte? How would you like to run this thread? First post for the index and the rest of the thread for discussion and new additions?

That's correct Mr. Phes! The rest of the thread can be used for comments, new additions,...

I'll filter it all out and update the first post.

You must have been quite busy! I have to take some time to read some of those... Like Napoleon Bonaparte or the Dutch Royal navy...

Nice list B *y* ,

There's also a useful article in answers.com on the HMS Surprise

http://www.answers.com/topic/hms-surprise

P

The text of the Wikipedia article for the HMS Surprise is identical as the text in your article... that's funny :)

I have added the wiki-link of the HMS Surprise and I have edited the wikipedia page to add the external link to the HMS Rose/Surprise homepage (was missing in the wiki-article).

Mr Tiber

Did you know there existed a Royal Netherlands Navy Jack? It's in the article on the Royal Netherlands Navy.

I wonder when this flag was introduced in the Dutch Navy. Any idea Mr. Tiber?

What method did you use to find all these links Mr Bonaparte? Can you use the Invasion Powerboard Search Engine to find URLs?

You can find the threads that have a link to wikipedia with the Invasion Powerboard Search Engine. Once you know this, you have to start looking in that thread manualy for the link.

When you mentioned this idea some time ago, I started collecting the links and put them in a text-file on my PC. Two days ago I felt I had a good list to post here.

You have done exceptionally well. You should take shore leave and some spend time with your lovelys onboard the L'Orient.

Hey B,

would you be willing to put the USS Constitution and Six original US frigates on the Wikipedia index?

The other five frigates weren't nearly as well known as the USS Constitution, but here they are just in case:

USS United States

USS Constellation

USS Chesapeake

USS Congress

USS President

P

Those are some great ships.

I've started a section about USA.

I've just realised Mr Bonaparte has forgotten to add the most important Wikipedia article of them all...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego_Pirate

That's why I have you guys ;-)

Were you aware there was a Pirate LEGO Wikipedia article though?

I have been aware of it, but I had forgotten it again...

Who added the external link to our forum in the Pirate LEGO Wikipedia article? Did you do that Mr. Phes?

Hey that's an important one, EB is even mentioned. ;-)

...

Yeah, i really like them.

The english were told not to engage any US frigate unless their ship had at least 64 guns(or something like that)

The US frigates had only 44 guns.

They could out run anything bigger than them and catch up to any one who was smaller.

Ooooooo look Mr Bonaparte - a Wikipedia link. Is this one in the index yet?

Hey B,

In case you didn't see the post in Tordenskjold's semaphore thread I posted the info here X-D

P

Thanks Mr. P. *y*

I think I'll make you my personal assistant X-D

I realized there was no category at this moment to put the semaphore station, so I added a new one: Buildings and Building Techniques. And because 1 entry would look a bit stupid, I did some searching on wikipedia to find more links for this category.

So how specific are we getting? There's trivial things like;

Very specific. Any Wikipedia article relevant to Pirate LEGO should be indexed here.

Pirate Lego? How about just Pirates? Or just ships of the times?
