calumus meretrix et gladio innocentis


  • Wiki keeps timeline and almanac information in pages in the Main group instead of breaking them out to a separate group.
  • Dates are expressed in the Gregorian calendar unless otherwise noted. This includes dates before the Gregorian calendar was in general use and before it was invented.
  • The Name of a page for a date matches this regular expression: /(\d+)(Bce)?({JFMASOND][a-z]+)(\d\d)/ . This means: one or more numbers (digits) followed optionally by the letters Bce, followed by one of the capital letters J, F, M, A, S, O, N, or D, followed by one or more lowercase letters, followed by exactly two numbers (digits).
  • In actual operation, the capital letter followed by lowercase letters should be the full English name of a month, for example: February. The last two digits are the the day of the month with a leading zero for days that would otherwise be single digits. The first digits are the number of the year which can be one, two, three, or four digits long. The Bce is used to indicate the year is before the current era (aka B.C.) There is no year 0, and at present the wiki does not recognize abbreviations of months or month names in other languages.

Example page names:

Events of that day, including major world events for reference, as well as events pertaining to people or families in the wiki.
an Almanac page, includes recurring events of that date, anniversaries and birthdays
approximate date, events known (or calculated or estimated) to have occurred that month but the day is unknown
approximate date, events believed to have occurred in that year, but month and day unknown, or a situation that persisted throughout the year.
day of the week, mostly for amusement in addition to a known date.
