Talk:Modern timeline

From elanthipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

For those of you going through logs, trying to figure out when in the world something happened in game time, I found a conversion calculator [1]. I have not yet checked it carefully, though, so I'd encourage you to use it a few times with game dates and RL dates that you know are linked. --Basselope 00:48, 5 December 2007 (CST)

Timelines that go backwards from modern to oldest bug me. I think it's my OCD tendencies. I'm going to reverse it. If that's a big issue for some people I guess I won't be too upset if it gets put back. --Kraelyst 06:53, 5 December 2007 (CST)
I hadn't thought of this, but I agree completely. Thanks for making the change. --Basselope 12:43, 5 December 2007 (CST)

I'm finding I'm not a fan of how the dates are. I seem to prefer the dates like the old timelines. Ex. 354 -- thing happens 355 -- thing happens.

   -- other thing happens in 355 but instead of writing another line of 355 we just make a new "--"

Just a thought. edit to say- the above seems to be why we aren't doing that. nevermind. --Ysselt 21:26, 5 December 2007 (CST)

I noticed that several items from the Necromancer Timeline were added to this one. The original description for the purpose of this page notes that "the editors of the Elanthipedia have begun to assemble a new timeline focusing on events taking place in the game itself." In other words, this page is for cataloging in game events. I have removed a few entries in the interest of keeping the article's content in line with its purpose. --Basselope 05:12, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

I don't play plat, but would someone from plat be interested in making a "modern timeline(plat)" edition? I know its useful for 1. new players 2. probably gms 3. people who are curious what's going on. --Ysselt 08:17, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
