please add some dates for the experiments.Nergaal (talk) 06:28, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
the experiments are in chronological order, I think additionally adding dates for the experiments would mess up the template and would not really give you an impression, 'cause the running time of these tests vary from couple of months to over 10 years. I prefer a simple, good looking and good for browsing, but not so much informative template with the running time information mentioned in the specific articles.

I am not from this field and since the tempalte is full of acronyms it does not tell me anything this way. I am thinking the launch year of the publication year would suffice. Nergaal (talk) 07:37, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
I understand your position. But I look at e.g. Template:Fusion_experiments where the same applies (acconyms of experiments ...) where they have no starting dates in the template. I also wrote a template, see Template:Cray computers, where manufacturing dates would be also informative. Unfortunately this would blow up the template, complicate browsing and at the end would be contraproductive. But this is my opinion, I seek for consistency across Navigation, Templates. If you (AND others) think it should be included, I will add them (in both!). (Sheliak (talk) 11:06, 12 February 2008 (UTC))
