Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

while looking at the [[Lockheed_Martin_F-35B_Lightning_II]], i noted the use of units that we could automatically have converted for us using the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Convert convert template] from wikipedia... i'm assuming that we can do that, right? so below is an example of how it would be used and how it would look... i've left the original entry in place for final result comparison...

Using Template:Convert

while looking at the Lockheed_Martin_F-35B_Lightning_II, i noted the use of units that we could automatically have converted for us using the convert template from wikipedia... i'm assuming that we can do that, right? so below is an example of how it would be used and how it would look... i've left the original entry in place for final result comparison...

=== Performance Data === * '''Maximum Speed:''' 1,200 mph {{convert|1200|mph|kt|abbr=on}} * '''Rate of climb:''' classified * '''Service Ceiling:''' 60,000 ft {{convert|60000|ft|m|abbr=on}} * '''Range:''' 1,200 mi {{convert|1200|mi|km|abbr=on}}
