Forum rules

Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Beaufort (wind speed)

While not exact, it is often common in navigation and meterology, especially marine, to use an old term for wind speed. This term is Beaufort. It would be nice to see the range (because it is not exact) in mph, fps, kph and m/s

Thank you for the suggestion.

The table for Beaufort scale can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaufort_scale
It would not be easy to add Beaufort conversion here as out current conversion layout does not support ranges. However we'll think on a possible way to implement it the future.
