Timeline talk Edit
Hey, use this space to comment on my year-page proposition... :)
"real" year pages Edit
Just a note on page for years that have happened already, because those pages also chronicle events in the real world (lists of publications mostly) the events section becomes a sub-section of the In-universe section, so the events section and all of it's sub-sections need to be one extra set of =s down the pyramid.
And another thought, for years when there are very few, or only one event at present, it might be best to not use all the sub-sections, as they don't have any information to divide up it just adds a lot of title with no content. --8of5 23:53, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Greater Than the Sum summaryEdit
Thanks for your message. My main reason for leaving the tag intact was because, as a humble contributor, I don't really feel qualified to say whether a page is complete or not. I have seen summaries that are a lot longer and more detailed than the one I provided so I wouldn't say I've said all there is to say on the subject. – Skteosk 17:08, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
