Since this discussion was originally placed in the wrong namespace and could not be easily moved over here, I've copied the original comments and included them in this post. We should be able to continue where we left off.

First, shouldn't this be done on the Council of Admirals forum? This page is the main article namespace so it's in the pool of regular content articles and will show up in the search bar. I just want to make sure we're using the correct format on this wiki for settling disputes.
To the discussion: I felt the article was a disorganized jumble with some redundant or irrelevant portions. It needed some updating. My edits were intended to improve overall organization and readability.
Looking at the edit history, the biggest removals I made were a paragraph about outfitting above the outfitting table, the Heritage section, the Unreleased Ships section, and the Faction Ships section.
I merged the Heritage section into the intro (which you may have missed), so that content is still present in the article with some rewording for flow.
The Unreleased Ships section is not needed since there is currently only one ship in development, the Panther Clipper, and the other ships listed there have no confirmation that they'll ever make it into the game. I cut everything but the Panther Clipper and expanded briefly on it in the Upcoming Ships section.
I cut the paragraph about outfitting since there's a whole article about the subject. It was pointless bloat here. This article should only broadly describe the topic of ships in Elite Dangerous anyway, not go in-depth on each ship's specs and module slots. That's what the individual ship articles are for. I was also planning to remove the stat and outfitting tables since they're both redundant and take up a lot of space, but in the end decided to let them be.
I cut the Faction Ships section for a similar reason. More bloat, and identifying which ships require faction ranks to purchase can be done without devoting an entire section to the subject. I accomplished this in the initial table that lists all the ships by bolding the relevant ship names and adding an explanatory sentence above the table.
I wasn't trying to cause any problems, but it seems my intent was not clear from my edits alone. I hope this explains my stance properly.

I'll get back to you tomorrow, I've been sick most of the day.
Clockpuncher (July 31, 2017):
Sorry to hear that, take as much time as you need.

Clockpuncher, put this in Council of Admirals forum and I'll remove this article tomorrow (or whenever you do it). Discussions are either on Talk or Forum namespaces
