This page is a proposed policy on the One Wiki to Rule them All. Except for minor edits, please make use of the discussion page to propose changes and improvements to this policy.


This page is provided as a guide to the formatting of date pages.

Year PagesEdit

Any year that is after TA 1601 should have as its first line

Also known as: [[Shire Reckoning]]

and then the year by the Shire calendar. For example TA 1601 starts with:

Also known as: [[Shire Reckoning]] 1

If the the major events of this year span more then two months, please include the following template after the "Also known as:" line

{{CompactTOCMonths}}

This will provide a table of contents that will allow people to jump to an individual month easliy.

EventsEdit

The events should be separated into three different groups:

  1. Happened sometime during that year
  2. Happened during a specific month
  3. Happened on a specific day

Any event that is stated to have happened some time during the year, but no specific date is given, should go below the table of contents, if included, in an unordered list. Next should be headers for each of the months that have events that year. Under each of these headers should be an unordered list of events that took place that month but the specific day of the month is unknown. Finally there should be a sub-header for each day of that month that has an event. The sub-header itself should be a link to the page for that day. The link should be formated so that the month does not show in the link:

===[[September 22|22]===

Then should be an unordered list of the events that happened on that day.

Mid-year's DayEdit

Even though Mid-year's Day is not a month, it should be on the same header level as a month. This is because J.R.R. Tolkien set it apart from the months when he create the calender for Middle-earth.

CategoriesEdit

All year pages should have two categories. The first is the Dates cateogry and the second should be the category for the era of Middle-earth that it is for, i.e. First Age, Second Age, Third Age, Fourth Age, Shire Reckoning. Also any year that is not a four-digit year should add a pipe ("|"), then the abbreviation for the era, and lastly the year with leading zeros to make it four digits long. This will ensure that the years are ordered properly in the category.

ExamplesEdit

  • For TA 1989
    [[Category:Dates]]
    [[Category:Third Age]]
  • For SA 1
    [[Category:Dates|SA 0001]]
    [[Category:Second Age|SA 0001]]
  • For FO 25
    [[Category:Dates|FO 0025]]
    [[Category:Fourth Age|FO 0025]]

Day PagesEdit

Pages for an individual day should start with major reoccurring events, such as New Year's Day. For dates that are the anniversary of an event, please just include the orignal event under the year that it occured. However, if there is a major event to celebrate the anniversary of an event, that should also be included. Any event for which the year in which it occured is unknown, please include under a header of Unknown at the top of the file. For all other events, please include a header that is the year of the event, and then include a list of the events that occured in that year under the header. The year header should be a link to that year's page.

CategoriesEdit

All day pages should have two categories. The first is the Dates cateogry and the second should be the category for the month of that date. Also any day that is not a two-digit day should add a pipe ("|"), then the abbreviation for the month, and lastly the day with a leading zero. This will ensure that the days are ordered properly in the category.

ExamplesEdit

  • For October 24
    [[Category:Dates]]
    [[Category:October]]
  • For December 2
    [[Category:Dates|December 02]]
    [[Category:December|December 02]]
