Move request[edit]

Should be moved to Category:Steam ships as per others in Category:Steam vehicles. Ingolfson 06:32, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't think I agree. While consistency is nice, there is a good reason for the difference here between steamships and other steam vehicles. "Steamships" is an actual word in the dictionary - "steam locomotives" and "Steam yachts" are separated by a space, for example, because "steamlocomotives" and "steamyachts" are not words. Let's not butcher the English language for the sake of perceived category consistency. --Skeezix1000 12:48, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
