Fyrimynd:Infobox ship career

Frá Wikipedia, hin frælsa alfrøðin

This template is part of the WikiProject Ships ship infobox. It adds a Career box to the infobox. Each section, except Infobox Ship Begin, can be repeated as necessary to support multiple careers, multiple sets of characteristics, etc. The header of the Career box can be hidden by setting its "Hide header=yes". This allows you to repeat certain fields by adding a second Career box with a hidden header.

NB. {{Infobox ship begin}} contains code for automatically making the ship name display in italics in the article title. This will only work with titles beginning with one of the prefixes (HMS, SS, etc.) that are listed in the code of Template:Ship prefix. If this does not work on a particular article (after purging), then please either (1) add the prefix to Template:Ship prefix (provided it is a single "word"); or (2) italicize the title manually (outside the ship infobox templates) using {{Italic title}} or {{Italic title prefixed}}; or (3) italicize part of the title manually by adding the following example to the top of the article, after the infobox: {{DISPLAYTITLE:RV ''Oceania''|noerror}}. (If putting it at the top of the article doesn't work, check to make sure the display title has all of the same characters as the actual title.)

This ship infobox supports a very large number of fields, including some specialty fields that will rarely be used. Some fields simply don't make sense in some cases. Some different sets of code have been prepared using only the most common fields. Select the most appropriate set below and copy and paste the entire code to the top of a ship article, then fill in as many fields as possible. Empty fields should generally be kept so that a future editor can fill them in unless they make no sense for the ship in question.

The "Full" code contains every field the template supports. If you want, you can copy one of the simplified sets of code and add a few fields from the "Full" code.

If you have ideas for improvements or would like to add brand new fields to these templates, please post on Template talk:Infobox ship begin to discuss the changes and how they should be implemented.

Parameters[rætta wikitekst]

Most fields are self-explanatory, but here are some tips (see the usage guide for a complete explanation of all parameter fields):

  1. Ship image If your article does not have an image in this field, the ship will automatically be listed at the hidden category Category:Ship infoboxes without an image. Editors can use the category to easily see a list of infoboxes where no image is attached and work to find pictures.
  2. Ship caption, the caption for the ship's picture, should be left blank if no extra information about the picture is available; don't just fill in the ship's name.
  3. Ship country is necessary when a ship served under multiple countries, but not really necessary otherwise.
  4. Ship class should include both the class and the type of ship. For example, Balao-class diesel-electric submarine provides complete information. It can be replaced with Ship type, which displays as "Type:", for ships that aren't members of a class.
  5. Ship name is necessary when a ship served under multiple names, but not really necessary otherwise.
  6. Ship fate and Ship status generally shouldn't both be filled in. Whichever one sounds most appropriate for the situation should be filled in. Use Ship fate when the ship sank or was scrapped, and use Ship status when the ship is active, kept in reserve, or currently a museum.
  7. Ship displacement and Ship tonnage are not the same thing. Displacement is the mass of a ship in a particular condition, like when it's fully loaded for battle. It is generally used for military vessels. Tonnage is a measurement of the cargo capacity of a vessel and isn't exactly correlated with weight: a ship of a particular tonnage will have a different mass depending on whether it's full of grain or iron. Entries in either parameter need to specifically identify the units in which they are being measured, such as long tons, metric tons or tonnes (unacceptable in articles using American English, use metric tons) or gross register tons or whatever. If possible, use templates such as {{GT}}, {{NetT}} and {{DWT}}.

Alternate spellings[rætta wikitekst]

Some fields provide alternate spellings and should never both be filled in:

  1. "Ship honors" and "Ship honours"
  2. "Ship draft" and "Ship draught"
  3. "Ship armor" and "Ship armour"

Parameter value import from Wikidata[rætta wikitekst]

Infobox ship can import parameter values from Wikidata (WD). A Wikidata property is roughly equivalent to an infobox parameter. When there is a page at Wikidata that matches the page at Wikipedia, and the Wikidata page has a property that matches the infobox parameter, then the infobox parameter can take its value from the Wikidata property.

These parameters, if left empty or omitted from the template, may be filled from Wikidata:

When the infobox is rendered in an article, those parameters that use Wikidata property values will display an icon (Imported from Wikidata) linked to the Wikidata source page. Articles using Wikdata properties are listed in Bólkur:Ship infoboxes importing Wikidata.

If an imported value is inappropriate or wrong, the corresponding Wikidata item should be corrected. The template code will only display a parameter's label and value if the parameter has an assigned value, whether provided locally or provided by Wikidata. If display of a Wikidata property value is not appropriate or desired, use the reserved value none as the parameter value to block Wikdata import. Articles blocking Wikdata property import are listed in Bólkur:Ship infoboxes blocking Wikidata import.

Removing extra fields[rætta wikitekst]

It's generally a good idea not to remove fields, because another editor might be able to provide the information later. However, in the case of mutually exclusive fields, like "Ship armor" and "Ship armour", the unused field can be removed if desired. Also, if a section is repeated (to show multiple periods in commission, for example), fields that are inappropriate to duplicate can be removed if desired. Keep in mind that a ship from the Age of Sail would not need the fields for aircraft or electronic warfare instruments and in opposite an aircraft carrier would not need the fields for a sail plan. A surface ship would not require fields for submarines etc.

Special capabilities[rætta wikitekst]

Repeating sections[rætta wikitekst]

This infobox allows you to repeat sections. To repeat, just make a copy of the section to be repeated. You can repeat the Image, Career, or Characteristics sections. Here is an example, with extra fields removed for clarity:

Hiding section headers[rætta wikitekst]

It is possible to hide the headers for the Career and General Characteristics sections, in order to repeat fields. For example, a ship might have been commissioned, decommissioned, recommissioned, and decommissioned again. To have the second commission and decommission dates, use additional a second Infobox ship career template with its header hidden, like this:

It is possible to add custom fields to the infobox using standard Wiki table syntax. This is not encouraged, because infoboxes are intended to standardize the appearance of ship articles, but it can be done if needed. See the below example, where "Sunk:" and "Raised:" fields are added to the ship's career:

TemplateData[rætta wikitekst]

Hetta er TemplateData dokumentatiónin fyri hesa fyrimynd, ið verður brúkt av VisualEditor og øðrum tólum.

Infobox ship career

This template is part of the WikiProject Ships ship infobox. It adds a Career box to the infobox. Each section, except Infobox Ship Begin, can be repeated as necessary to support multiple careers, multiple sets of characteristics, etc. The header of the Career box can be hidden by setting its "Hide header=yes". This allows you to repeat certain fields by adding a second Career box with a hidden header.

Template parameters[Edit template data]

Hide headerHide header

If you need to repeat fields by using multiple copies of the "Career" subtemplate, enter "Yes" in this field to prevent display of the blue bar at the top of the second template. At least one "Career" header should be left visible.

Ship countryShip country

The nation a ship is associated with; either the nation a warship belongs to, or the nation of registry for civilian ships. However, in case of civilian ships flying flags of convenience, this field should not be used. The country is placed in the infobox header. Do not use this field to indicate ranges.

Ship flagShip flag

The ensign (maritime flag) associated with a ship

Ship classShip class

If the ship belongs to a recognized ship class, use this field to identify the class. The field displays as "class & type", so the type should be added here as well.

Ship nameShip name

The name of the ship

Ship namesakeShip namesake

If the ship's name originates from a particular person, location, event, or object, it may be added here. However, descriptions longer than a few words (e.g. a person's name or "Finnish for "potato"") should be placed in the article body.

Ship ownerShip owner

The company or organisation that owns the vessel. When multiple entries are made in this field, include year ranges. Leave this field blank for warships, as the combination of the |Ship country= and |Ship flag= fields will generally be enough for readers to identify ownership.

Ship operatorShip operator

The company or organisation that operates or runs the ship. If the owner of the vessel is also the operator, this field may be left empty. If it is necessary to mention the charterer of the ship in the infobox, use a separate custom field for that.

Ship registryShip registry

The nation and port of registry for a civilian vessel. This is generally found painted on the ship's stern. The nation of registry should be expressed as text, not as a flag symbol. A flag symbol may be used in addition, but only if such usage meets Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Icons. When multiple entries are made in this field, include year ranges

Ship routeShip route

If a civilian or merchant vessel has a long-term (multiple years +) association with a particular voyage path or route. Do not use this field for modern cruise ships, as their routes change on a regular basis.

Ship orderedShip ordered

The date that the ship was ordered from the shipbuilder.

Ship awardedShip awarded

For United States Navy vessels, the date that the contract to build the ships was signed/approved.

Ship builderShip builder

The shipyard or other construction facility where the vessel was built. Usually, only the building company is listed here. The location of the shipyard may also be added, but avoid too much detail: anything more than a single 'location link' can be discussed in the body of the article or referred to with a link (for example [[Vickers-Armstrongs]], [[Barrow-in-Furness]] or [[BAE Systems Australia]], [[Williamstown, Victoria]], but not [[Scotts Shipbuilding and Engineering Company]], [[Greenock]], [[Scotland]], [[United Kingdom]])

Ship original costShip original cost

The financial cost of building the ship, usually at the time of construction and using the currency of either the orderer or the builder. If other values are used (e.g. conversions), they should be specified and, if necessary, further discussed in the article

Ship yard numberShip yard number

An identifying number assigned for the ship by the builder during construction

Ship way numberShip way number

If the particular slipway where a ship was built has been identified with a number, it may be added here. Rarely used for modern vessels.

Ship laid downShip laid down

The date on which the keel was laid down onto the slipway by the builder. For most ships, this is the point where construction of the vessel starts, and is usually accompanied by ceremony. Although modular construction techniques mean that fabrication of modern vessels can start prior to this, the first time a module is placed on the slipway or building dock is still recognised as the date a ship is laid down.

Ship launchedShip launched

The date a ship is launched, floated out, or other circumstance where the completed hull enters the water. Construction is not normally completed by this date. Take care not to confuse it with dates recognising the ship's entry into service (such as commissioning or maiden voyage)

Ship sponsorShip sponsor

he individual (usually a woman and sometimes referred to as a "launching lady") who does the whole ceremonial "smash-the-bottle,-launch-the-ship" thing as part of the launching ceremony. This is not to be used for any companies or organisations providing sponsorship of a vessel in exchange for advertising or naming rights.

Ship christenedShip christened

The date of the ceremony in which the ship formally and/or ceremonially receives her name (see Ship naming and launching). Only use this field if the naming/christening happened at a separate point in time to either the launching or commissioning ceremonies.

Ship completedShip completed

The date construction work finished

Ship acquiredShip acquired

The date of delivery by the shipbuilder to the owner or operator. If it is the same as the completition date, this field may be left empty. Alternately, if the ship changes ownership and multiple, separate "Career" subtemplates are being used, the date the new owner/operator came into possession of the ship. Do not use this method if the change of ownership is being handled through multiple entries in the |Ship owner= field

Ship commissionedShip commissioned

The date a warship was commissioned into naval service. Do not use for civilian merchant vessels

Ship recommissionedShip recommissioned

If a naval vessel was decommissioned from service, then reactivated, use this field to add the new commissioning date

Used best with multiple copies of the "Career" subtemplate (|Ship commissioned= and |Ship decommissioned= fields in the first template, |Ship recommissioned= and |Ship decommissioned= in the second).

Do not use for civilian merchant vessels

Ship decommissionedShip decommissioned

The date a warship was decommissioned or paid off from naval service.

Do not use this field if events related to the ship's fate (such as loss in action) mean the ship was never formally decommissioned.

Do not use for civilian merchant vessels.

Ship maiden voyageShip maiden voyage

The dates and locations of the start and end of the ship's maiden voyage: the first recognised voyage in full service, usually carrying passengers or cargo.

The transfer of a completed ship from the shipyard to its owner is not normally recognised as a maiden voyage; this is part of the sea trial or shakedown phase, which ensures the ship is working as built.

Most commonly used for civilian passenger-carrying vessels

Ship in serviceShip in service

The date a civilian vessel began operations. Alternately, this may be treated as a date range indicating the start and end points of a ship's career. If being used in this manner, ignore the |Ship out of service= field.

Ship out of serviceShip out of service

The date a civilian vessel ceased operations. If the |Ship in service= field is being used with a date range instead of a set date, do not use this field.

Ship renamedShip renamed

If the ship changes names, the new names and corresponding dates may be listed here. If multiple names are listed in the |Ship name= field, ignore this field.

Ship reclassifiedShip reclassified

When a warship's classification is altered, the date and new classification may be listed here

Ship refitShip refit

If the ship underwent a major modification or refit, the start and end dates may be listed here.

Ship struckShip struck

When a ship is removed from an official register (such as the United States Navy's Naval Vessel Register), the date of removal (or striking) from the register should be listed here. This field does not include collisions or groundings a ship has experienced.

Ship reinstatedShip reinstated

If, after a ship has been stricken from a register, she is returned to service and is re-listed on that register, the date of reinstatement should be listed here Used best with multiple copies of the "Career" subtemplate.

Ship homeportShip homeport

The home port of the vessel (if different from |Ship registry=): For civilian ships, this will be the primary port from which the ship operates (i.e. for cruise ships, the port in which cruises start and end). Port of registry (the one painted on the stern) should be listed in |Ship registry=. For warships, this will be the ship's assigned naval base.

When multiple entries are made in this field, include year ranges.

For ships that change their home port on a regular basis (more than once every couple of years), consider ignoring this field and elaborating in the body of the article

Ship identificationShip identification

Any identification numbers or codes for the vessel are listed here. This may include IMO numbers (use {{IMO number}}), MMSI numbers (use {{MMSI}}), call signs, and pennant/hull numbers (although consider not using the field for hull numbers if these are indicated in the lead sentence of the article).

Ship mottoShip motto

If the ship has a motto, it should be listed here. Wrap non-English mottos in {{lang}} templates followed by the English translation

Ship nicknameShip nickname

If the ship has any nicknames, they should be listed here. Take care to ensure these are sourced (either in the infobox, or in the body of the article), and consider adding related context and/or circumstances to the article itself.

Ship honorsShip honors Ship honours

Used to list any battle honours, battle stars, unit citations, or other unit awards awarded to the ship for her service.

Do not list awards given to individuals, even if the award was for service aboard the vessel. Mention these awards in the relevant part of the ship's history. Avoid listing annual capability or competition awards (such as the Battle Effectiveness Award or the Gloucester Cup) to avoid bloat.

British English (honours) and American English (honors) alternates are provided; delete whichever is inappropriate.

Ship capturedShip captured

When the ship falls into enemy hands, and whose hands they are.

Keep it brief by only indicating the capturing nation and the date (i.e. "Antarctica, 30 February 2012"). Detail relating to the capture should be in the article.

Follow up with a new "Career" subtemplate to discuss the ship's career with her captor.

Ship fateShip fate

Used to indicate that a ship is no longer operational, and will not return to service in the future. This is usually when something pretty permanent happens to the ship, like sinking or scrapping. Rule of thumb: "Is the ship permanently below the surface, or in pieces?"

Only list the event and the date it occurred (for example: "Sank following collision on 10 February 1964", or "Sold for scrap in 1975". Details such as location, cause, etc. should be discussed in the article.

In the majority of cases, |Ship status= and |Ship fate= are mutually exclusive. Unlike other redundant fields, leave |Ship fate= in the article, as the ship's life will end one day.

Ship statusShip status

Used to indicate that a ship is currently in service, or has been removed from service but is available for future use or preserved in some form. Rule of thumb: "Is the ship above the water and intact?"

For active ships, consider using {{Ship in active service}} or other means to indicate the last known date (generally year) the ship was active. However, if the ship is expected to remain in service in the near future and its decommissioning will not likely go unnoticed, simply |Ship in service= should be enough. For inactive ships, indicate briefly what the ship is 'doing' (laid up, in reserve, preserved as museum ship, awaiting disposal, etc.) and, if deemed necessary, where it is moored.

In the majority of cases, |Ship status= and |Ship fate= are mutually exclusive. If the |Ship fate= field is used, delete this field.

Ship notesShip notes

Any other important information not covered by the other infobox fields, but not important enough for a custom field. This field should not be used for citations/references: either the citations should be attached to the specific entry, or the infobox should be treated as part of the lead section, with the citations attached to the information in the body of the article.

Ship badgeShip badge

An image or description of any naval heraldry, such as the ship's badge or crest, may be added here
