Template talk:Death year category header

Add topic
Active discussions

Over the course of this template's history, there has been a fair amount of change in its default recategorisation scheme. Originally, the years were unsorted. Then, they were sorted by their last digit. Later, they were changed to no sort by letter (i.e. [[Category:1xx0s births| {{PAGENAME}}]]. As of this writing they are all sorted under the asterisk, as are lists ([[Category:1xx0s births|*{{PAGENAME}}]]). Can there be some discussion on the best system by which to sort these years? →Iñgólemo← (talk) 04:37, 2004 Dec 7 (UTC)

Does anybody know why de: interlang link is listed twice in X deaths categories? -- 28 June 2005 16:13 (UTC)

It was first added directly to the categories, later to this template. Apparently this is one way that still displays them twice. -- User:Docu

Requested changesEdit


Can we please add the following: <br>''See also'' [[{{{1}}}{{{2}}}|Main Article:{{{1}}}{{{2}}}]]. Jerry 06:10, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

 N Protected page edit declined.. There is already a link to [[{{{1}}}{{{2}}}]] in the template. Sandstein 21:57, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

No there isn't. There is a link to Category:1968_deaths. What I was asking for is: See also: 1968.
Jerry 03:48, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
That link is already there at the very top, as: People who died c. 1968. Sandstein 06:38, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
You're absolutely right. hmmmmm. Thanks for the reply and patience. Jerry 21:53, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Fix the bugEdit

This edit screwed things up. See Category:2006 deaths for an example (specifically, the text "{{}}Category TOC|numerals=no"). Needs to be reverted or fixed. —danhash (talk) 19:55, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

  Done Tra (Talk) 21:00, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Edit request: year article titlesEdit

Please use the new title for moved year articles in categories such as 420 deaths. I have mocked up the change in a sandbox (diff). You may wish to semi-protect {{Year article}} or provide an alternative implementation. A similar change will be needed for births. Certes (talk) 21:39, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

  Done You should now make the protection request at WP:RFPP. Sceptre (talk) 00:00, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for fixing both templates. As Year article has no history of vandalism and is only used in a few thousand pages (mainly outside mainspace), I've not requested protection at this time. Certes (talk) 10:21, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
MusikBot II has semi-protected the subtemplate, which seems like a reasonable compromise. Certes (talk) 18:03, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
