Is there a way to code this so it pulls the current calendar date, and have templates for each day of the year? Louisiannan 22:12, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Probably, but that is beyond my knowledge. Mitro 00:16, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Maybe it would be good to ad the name of the timline to the news items.--Marcpasquin 13:23, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Well I did link the article I got the information and most were TLs. The LBJ one though was my own creation. Bad news, there are no dates on this wiki that go with July 3 unless I missed something. Mitro 15:39, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Criteria for inclusion

I love that this is actually getting made, and I love the way we're doing it - one bite at a time, month after month.

May I suggest a guideline? Don't include events that are identical to OTL - this is "Today in Alternate History", after all - unless you can add a few words explaining the context, showing that it is clearly AH. So for the US Constitution bit on July 12, I added "all sixteen American states". Benkarnell 21:09, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

That sounds reasonable. Mitro 21:24, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Recent additions have included events (notably wedding dates) that are identical to our time line. These events just take up space and should be deleted by those who added them. Read the guidelines, people. We even said "Please."  :-[ SouthWriter 19:31, March 11, 2011 (UTC)


Ben if its ok with you, how about you do the weekends and I will do the weekdays? Unless you want to pick up a few more. Mitro 20:11, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

I've just been doing them as they've come. Do you want me to do yesterday's? Benkarnell 20:28, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

July 23, etc.

Hi, guys. It looks like you guys got bogged down after only three weeks. I can see why. Browsing each day means going through thirty or so "hits" of the search engine to choose the best ones. I did July 23, and June 14th (today's date). While I was at it, I did my birthday, January 10th. It looks like we only have 340 more days to go!  :-) SouthWriter 22:31, June 14, 2010 (UTC)


I don't like the new format put in by XterrorX. though it seems to represent major work on his part. What do the rest of you think? SouthWriter 17:20, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

Despite the fact that it's my own work (2 hours of typing) I think I know what you mean. I personally dislike all the lines, but it was the only way I knew how to properly separate the days. Also, adding each day between an equal (=) is also not feasible, since that would unnecessarily lengthen the content overview tab on top. If you have ideas, feel free to add, since I was just frustrated with the state the article was in (just 4 months and a couple of days shown) --XterrorX 19:26, December 15, 2010 (UTC)
