Navigation between years[edit]

I wonder if this infobox could also be used for navigation between years, e.g. could the infobox for 2008 include links to 2007 and 2009? (sdsds - talk) 02:09, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

It's a top-of-page vs. bottom-of-page thing. Having "Preceded by" and "Succeeded by" links near the top of each page would facilitate "flipping through" the sequence of pages. Scrolling to the bottom of each page for each page flip slows the process considerably! (sdsds - talk) 15:22, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant Template:TLS-M (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) --GW 22:13, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
{{TLS-L}} is used at the bottom of the page and in my opinion there needs to be some navigational functionality also at the top of the page, probably within the current template would be the most convenient. At least links to the preceding and succeeding years should be easily accessible. __meco (talk) 07:05, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

First/last useful?[edit]

Is there some special significance to the first and last launches of the year? Seems like useless information to me. --IanOsgood (talk) 21:12, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

'year' parameter[edit]

This infobox now has a |year= parameter, for improved data granularity, and an emits an hCalendar microformat. The parameter would allow us to add "previous" and "next" links, as requested above, if !people thought that desirable.
