Leland Chee said on his Twitter, "We'll still use timelines that mark Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope as Year 0." Because of this, should we use the BBY/ABY System again in our canon articles? —Unsigned comment by126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs).
He said they'll use timelines that mark Episode IV as Year 0, but that's not the same thing as saying they'll still use specific labels like BBY and ABY. We need to wait for more information before we start using dates in pages. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:25, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
And why do you need more information? even if it isn't BBY/ABY you can still put "before the battle of yavin" or something like that.--Gboy4 (talk) 19:38, August 20, 2014 (UTC)
Which doesn't negate what I said. Sure, you can use vague generalities for now, but you can't use specific dates like BBY and ABY. There's a difference between the two, so we just need to make sure we're not crossing the line into using those generalities as if they are specific dates. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 19:42, August 20, 2014 (UTC)
