After witnessing an annoying set of edit wars, I am suggesting a standardised way of measuring.

Meters is used by the UNSC primarily, and has been used to measure small items and vehicles. Feet and Inches have been used to measure the heights of Species and how long a ship is (if not in Kilometres).

Using the template I have devised: {{M2F|''Height in Centimeters''|''Feet''|''Inches''}}

For instance, if someone was 166cm, then they'd be 5'5". This can be generated through:

{{M2F|166|5|5}}


creates


166cm (5' 5")[1]


This also generates a footnote, so that someone can identify how to compare the measurement systems:

  1. 1 inch=2.54cm
    1 foot=30.48cm
