I was wondering what date format is used in the Star Wars universe, i.e. ddmmyy, mmddyy, etc.? I have found a lot of information on line a out days in year, number of months in a year, etc., but nothing on the date format. I'm thinking about getting a star wars tattoo when I have a child and I want to put the child's name and birthdate in aurebesch (sp?) and for obvious/permanent reasons, I would like to get the date format accurate.
Keep in mind that time in the Star Wars universe operates on a 10-month calendar (not counting festival weeks and holidays), with 35 days in each month. The date format using colons starts with the first year of the Empire at 0. Converting directly to a real-world date scheme may not be straightforward. -- Riffsyphon1024 07:04, September 26, 2012 (UTC)
I don't think any authors use the ten-month calendar anymore. Leland Chee once said on the sw.com forums that he encourages authors to use the twelve-month calendar; the original Clone Wars multimedia project used the twelve-monther; Sue Rostoni used it for her LOTF timeline, etc, etc. Menkooroo (talk) 09:50, September 26, 2012 (UTC)
