Different calendarsEdit

The global statement "...a year with 365 days" is in error. This applies ONLY to the Gregorian calendar. The Jewish and Muslim calendars, at a minimum, have different definitions for the common year. For a start, consult the table under the entry "year" in Merriam-Webster 3rd Int'l Unabridged. Lisztman (talk) 21:19, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Date unlinkingEdit

People have been linking all the years recently, and I have reverted it according to the Manual of Style, Wikipedia:Link#Chronological_items, which says "Year articles (1795, 1955, 2007) should not be linked unless they contain information that is germane and topical to the subject matter".

Also, some people have been taking the [[ and ]] from around the [[Common year starting on Monday|began]] statements - please don't, as that just leaves it saying "Common year starting on Monday|began".

Finally, I've unlinked a few of the "Common year starting on..." links, because we only need to link each one once. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 15:31, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

I've also now unlinked the days, again as per WP:MOS - we don't link common and well-known terms, unless the target article has some material germane to the topic itself. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 15:34, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
