Created[edit]

02-Jan-2008: The year-ending "Template:C1YearEnd" was created to centralize format changes to years 1-100. It is part of a series of 21 templates to control formatting of the 21 higher centuries, rather than re-editing the 2,100 yearly articles. -Wikid77 (talk) 12:37, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Related templates[edit]

02-Jan-2008: A related template is the subject-navbox "Template:C1YearInTopic" derived from "Template:M1YearInTopic" which was formerly applied to the whole 1st millennium of yearly articles from 1-1000. -Wikid77 (talk) 12:37, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Crowding text[edit]

05-Jan-2008: The format of yearly articles should not crowd text with very large images or large right-side navigation boxes. In years "1-100" the long vertical navbox of "{{Year in other calendars}}" was replaced (05Jan08) with the equivalent horizontal bottom table "{{Year in other calendars table}}" to expand text 50% from 8 words-per-line to over 12 per line. Debates had lamented limiting the explanatory text about each event, while crowding of text made longer sentences stretch down the page. Keeping wider text lines allows more explanatory text per event, without stretching a page as much, providing space for more context written about each event. -Wikid77 (talk) 19:48, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
