  • Comment. I never self nom but today is the anniversary of this event. LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 11:40, April 14, 2012 (UTC)
    • Not only should you self-nom, I think you owe it to the feature list to put your best stuff on it. I would estimate what, two dozen pages that are feature worthy lurking in your contribution list? Give or take a few. Great work here, and as well formatted as you are known for or should be known for. Aleister 13:55 14-4-'12
      • I was inspired to write this story after reading the communications between the Titanic and other ships that night. There really was confusion about what the Titanic was signalling. At the time, wireless on a ship was considered a novelty and not essential (a bit like carrying enough lifeboats for a ship's crew and passengers). Many wireless operators were very young, wireless at the time was the internet of its age. On the big liners like Titanic and Olympic, the wireless communication was used for personal traffic, a deliberate policy by Marconi to increase the profile of his 'invention' (or really, capitalisation of an existent knowledge). The wireless operators also had their own codes like 'OM' (Old Man) or CQD (Marconi's own distress signal). It was already confusion and only a few months earlier, it had been agreed that SOS should be used in future for distress signals as it was (a) easier to send - ...---... and (b) not tied to any one company (it was an 'open protocol' in modern idiom). Even the matter of firing 'rockets' wasn't standard. Other vessels wouldn't know if you were sinking or having a wild party. So since as far as I know, no one else has attempted to do a story like this or at least, I hadn't heard one, I chose this format to write the article. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 06:32, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
