task force

Welcome to the Maritime Transport task force! We are a group of Wikipedia editors that work on topics related to maritime transport.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them on our discussion page or try our IRC channel (#wikipedia-en-transport).

What do we do?

Our goal is to build the foremost free-content encyclopedia of maritime transport in the English language by:

  • Creating, improving, and maintaining articles that describe all aspects of maritime transport;
  • Providing guidelines and recommendations for editors of maritime transport articles; and
  • Serving as the central point of discussion for all issues related to maritime transport in Wikipedia.

This task force began in January 2011 when WikiProject Maritime Trades (which dates back to 25 March 2007) and WikiProject Ports (which dates back to 28 April 2005) were combined and re-imagined as a Transport task force.

Tagging and assessment

To add an article to the task force, place the Transport Project Banner ({{WikiProject Transport}}) with the parameter Maritime=yes at the top of the article's talk page.

The short form of the banner is suitable for most new articles:

{{WPTRANSPORT
   |class=
   |B1=|B2=|B3=|B4=|B5=
   |importance=
   |Maritime=yes}}

For more information on tagging and assessing articles, see the assessment department. Project statistics are automatically updated every few days, or you can run the bot by clicking here.

What topics do we not cover

There is an obvious overlap between this project and WP:SHIPS, however neither project contains the other. Ships that are not involved with transportation per se are outside the scope of this project, probably most notably warships, which fall within WP:SHIPS and the Maritime warfare task force. The fishing industry is mostly covered by WP:FISHING.
