Issues with template[edit]

*Landing site doesn't appear when data entered into that field, and indeed, doesn't even seem to be present in the current version of the template, but it is on nearly all the Expedition pages. I'll try to fix that. Fixed.

  • StationVisitLength does not give instructions on proper format to enter this. Ideally, it should be "docking date/time" and "Undocking date/time", and then a code to calculate the total between the two dates. If this isn't technically possible, let me know. I don't know how to code well enough to do that. ArielGold 11:08, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Start/end points of expeditions.[edit]

Now that the ISS is up to six crewmembers, the relevance of launch & landing dates of expeditions is much reduced - I propose we change the infobox to be start/end date instead, as, obviously, the handovers are now performed in orbit. Colds7ream (talk) 14:29, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Seems like a good idea, but would it be better to have both? --GW 21:56, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Both would be good, actually. Since the 3 man expeditions launch as one whole crew. The 6person crews it takes 2 launches, so for that, start date is what is really needed.--NavyBlue84 00:24, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
