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.

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?

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.

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

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?

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.

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.
