A Problem[edit]

All these pages start:
"x is the nth day of the year in the Gregorian calendar."
This is misleading; all entries up to 1582 generally (and up to 1752 in Britain and the Americas) would be dates in the Julian calendar
I suggest it needs fixing; does anyone have any ideas how? Moonraker12 (talk) 13:14, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

This should be discussed at WT:DAYS. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 00:04, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Total[edit]

Also, this category says it has a total of 344 pages; that's a bit odd, isn't it? Is there a reason why not 365 (or 366, I suppose)? Moonraker12 (talk) 13:24, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

That's a bug that has never been addressed. The number is never accurate. I know I created a bug for this, but I can't find it. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 00:04, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

NYT On This Day Moved[edit]

The NYT On This Day has moved and so now some of the links are broken. If someone wants to fix them, the index can be found at http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/on-this-day/. --Katie-e (talk) 21:29, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Having a look. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 21:54, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
Fixed. Future discussion on this type of topic should be directed to WT:DAYS. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 00:20, 17 March 2011 (UTC)


A query[edit]

Why are we told that there are 363 entries in this category, when there are 365 days in a year (and an extra day, making it 366 days, when the year is a Leap year)? ACEOREVIVED (talk) 00:13, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

It seems to be an error in WikiMedia software. If you look at the listings, you see 200 of 363 and then, when you go to the next page, 166 of 363. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 09:15, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
It's an unresolved bug. See this. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 09:18, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
