Start date[edit]

The start date should not be mandatory; in some cases, we don't know it Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:08, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

True, wouldn't this go for the end date as well? Jimp 08:36, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Deprecate {{{year_start}}} and {{{year_end}}}[edit]

It's unnecessary to have both {{{year_start}}} and {{{date_start}}}. {{{date_start}}} by itself would do. Likewise for {{{year_end}}} and {{{date_end}}}. Jimp 08:36, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Olonets Governorate[edit]

In Olonets Governorate, this template generates a link to Coat of arms of Karelia, which is (a) a DAB page and (b) irrelevant. The arms are those of Olonets Governorate itself, as File:Coat of Arms of Olonets gubernia (Russian empire).png makes clear. Narky Blert (talk) 15:37, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Narky Blert, I changed it to link to the file. feel free to change the link. Frietjes (talk) 16:16, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
@Frietjes: Yet more speedy service! (I never like to meddle in complex templates, for fear of bringing the whole thing crashing down.) Narky Blert (talk) 16:19, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
