So I noticed the article for Star Wars: The Old Republic in the infobox states the game takes place between 3643 BBY and 3641 BBY, however articles of characters from the game who've died are listed as dying in 3641 BBY, even ones who die early in the story.
I was just wondering how do we determine exactly which year they died, I mean are there intervals in the game which state the current year it is as the story progresses or are all characters which have died placed automatically in the year 3641 BBY? --Victory93 04:44, January 6, 2012 (UTC)
Thus far, I've been approaching it as seen here, on the Quesh war page. If you look at the notes and references, you'll notice that I link to a forum post by head writer Daniel Erickson where he states that it all occurs around a decade after the Treaty is signed, so approximately 3643 BBY. So, in infoboxes, you can use "c. 3643 BBY" and in the article's text you should state that the events of the game occurred either "around 3643 BBY" or "approximately ten years after the end of the Great Galactic War" and use a similar citation.

So then supposably for the time being should we just say they died 'Between 3643 BBY-3641 BBY'? --Victory93 06:34, January 6, 2012 (UTC)
I would hesitate to put such a definitive frame on it, because as Erickson said, some of the stories may begin even before the 10 year mark. It's a little safer to say "approximately" or "around". Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 03:49, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
