Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH Archive/Year Date Change?

I had an idea, for each year, like 21 ABY or 0 ABY after listing 'events', 'births', 'deaths', etc, why not also make a list of all books/comics/movies/video games/television episodes/etc. that have events happen in this time.

For example, 41 ABY would read:

  • Events:

  • Births:

  • Deaths:

Mara Jade (just kidding)

  • Publications:

Legacy of the Force: Exile Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice Inferno ---etc.

Sound good?

  • Sounds great! It would add much more purpose to those otherwise almost empty year pages. Bonko 16:17, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
  • I don't know. The intention was to keep those pages In Universe, meaning no references to books or comics in that time period. -- Riffsyphon1024 16:32, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
    • So is it a go or no go? CBenoit 12:32, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
      • Keep the year pages IU, in my opinion. QuentinGeorge 12:34, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
        • I like the idea for reference, but I also agree with QuentinGeorge, but couldn't we specifically say its out of universe? RushinSundaws 12:43, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
          • I think its worth making it out of universe just for the help it provides. I think the usefulness of it outweighs making it out of universe. CBenoit 14:00, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
            • You mean In Universe? -- Riffsyphon1024 20:56, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
              • No, I think its worth making the year/date pages OUT OF UNIVERSE. I think the extra info that shows what things/publications/etc. deal with these years is worth going from IN UNIVERSE to OUT OF UNIVERSE. CBenoit 13:04, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
                • I'm sure it would be easy enough to put a header saying "Out of Universe" or something. I support the idea of having OOU publications listed under the IU dates. --beeurd 00:11, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Ok then, can we get this put to a formal voting or something then? CBenoit 12:31, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
    • I think we should add the info. If you're saying it makes the year pages OOU, does adding sources and appearances for a character, like Darth Vader, make that page OOU as well? I still consider it IU, so these should be too. --Xwing328(Talk) 16:01, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Do we have to put it to a vote or anything? CBenoit 16:02, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
    • What if we just used those little source-citing footnote thingies on all the events with a source at the bottom? It would accomplish pretty much the same thing. Havac 22:37, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
      • Sounds good enough to me. CBenoit 12:32, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
