This page seeks to aid the creation of a wiki with a relatively uniform style, for ease of use, readability and general aesthetic reasons.

For now we will try to follow the Wikipedia Manual of Style as closely as possible, but if you have further suggestions to improve the style for the maritime sector please simply edit this page.


For guidance on referencing, please refer to the Wikipedia:Citing Sources page.

Spelling and Units

For all spelling, use Oxford English dictionary spelling, not american spelling.

When using units, use metric, unless specifically referring to imperial situations (for example when writing about american oil calculations). In these situations, also provide a metric conversion.


Please use categories where possible to catalyse the discovery of new information.
