You have to edit Template:Months to change this, but this template gets included at the bottom of all the months too, hence the horizontal strip design. Just in case anyone was confused by this -- Nojer2 08:25, 6 Jan 2005 (EST)

Organization of Monthly Pages

How should we organize them? I'd suggest seperating events with specific dates from those that are listed with only a general timeframe ("in october every year", for example). -- Nils 20:05, 2 Apr 2004 (EST)

And should we list the specific date of annual events when we have a specific date, but only for say, 2004? Matthewmayer 16:45, 4 Apr 2004 (EDT)

I'd say list the current year and the next year... ie. two future occurances at most. -- Nils 08:35, 5 Apr 2004 (EDT)
I think we need more sections for these pages. To me, Specific Date indicates a particular date in a particular year. Every year indicates an event occuring on the same date, or at the same time in the month each year. I feel the sections need to be more like:
  • Specific Year
    • This Year (Number)
    • Next Year (Number)
    • Later Years (Numbers)
  • Each Year
    • Specific Date
      • (National) Holidays
      • Other Significant Days
    • During the month
      • Events and festivals
What do others think? -- Huttite 01:40, 4 Jan 2005 (EST)
Me like, just without the excessive capital letters. Also, we should standardize on a format for dates themselves, and I think "Month DD, YYYY" for specific dates and "Month DD" is about as clear and unambiguous as it gets. Jpatokal 03:50, 21 Apr 2005 (EDT)

I went ahead and suggested a standard format. I still like "Month DD" more than "Month DDth", but the latter seems to be more common in the existing entries -- comments welcome. Jpatokal 10:00, 31 Jul 2005 (EDT)
