Update August 2015[edit]

I'm considering redoing this multiply-nested template you use fewer nests. Possible improvements:

  1. Make it work properly in other namespaces. (It's currently only referenced in mainspace, and by century articles. It used to be used in century categories, but consensus was to replace it by a simple forward-back template, with the millennia and decade links visible by normal Wikipedia methods (millennia by the parent category, and decades by child category).
  2. Adjust the links to 0s and 0s BC so that they aren't redlinked.
  3. Possibly pipe the links so that "(decade)" is not visible, as in [[100s (decade)|100s]] and [[100s BC (decade)|100s BC]]
