Time related templates[edit]

Time is a pretty vast subject, and it's impossible (or, at least, very unwise) to try to group all of it into a single template. A cautionary lesson is the defunct Template:Culture of China. It ran on for hundreds and hundreds of links, but the articles were better served by a few interlocking templates, which they enjoy now.

My intent is to build a loose hierarchy of Time templates. There will a good deal of overlap, especially regarding calendars.

I have no absolute goal in mind for the templates, and expect Wikipedians to edit them to suit. A general goal is, of course, to make articles on Time more accessible and interrelated.

Some suggestions:

  • The Time Portal will display all the templates.
  • Don't duplicate Template:Calendars, which is very concise and useful, into another template. Calendar topics are bound to show up in several Time templates, but none should be a list like the one in the Calendars template.
  • Individual articles should preferably have just one, and no more than two or three Time templates. There may be exceptions, but the goal is to resolve clutter and confusion, not create it.
  • Let the Geology editors work out their own Era templates. This may well apply to other disciplines; it's enough to link to chronology and overview pages about time in various disciplines.

Deleted article[edit]

{{editprotect}} Hypotheses of consciousness and spacetime should be removed as it was deleted following a successful AfD. mgiganteus1 (talk) 18:16, 1 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

{{editprotect}} Please remove Fourth dimension from the list per Talk:Fourth dimension; that article discusses the Euclidean 4-space, and not 4-dimensional Minkowski space, which is covered by spacetime instead. Thanks!—Tetracube (talk) 17:05, 31 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Agreed and template added. --JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 17:14, 31 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why is this page fully protected?[edit]

I see nothing in its history to justify full protection. Tijfo098 (talk) 02:50, 10 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I thought the same. Semi-protection would seem more reasonable to me, but I haven't studied the policies in detail. I'll ask the the protecting admin, User:NawlinWiki, to discuss here. Qwfp (talk) 07:24, 10 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There was a period about 3 years ago when we were getting nasty vandalism (i.e., gross images) to a lot of high-visibility templates. That seems to have subsided, though, and I've reduced this one to semiprotection. NawlinWiki (talk) 18:11, 10 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Many thanks! Qwfp (talk) 19:42, 10 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"History" link[edit]

Hi, I suggest removing the link to History from the "Major concepts" section. I assumed, reasonably I think, that this would lead me to an article about the history of the concept of time. In fact, it links to an article on the actual subject of "History", which I do not think is particularly relevant here. (talk) 21:42, 7 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

long now[edit]

removed long now foundation, as they are not an idea, like all the rest here. replaced it with Deep time, which is a good aproximation.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 06:26, 26 July 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Geological time etc[edit]

Suggest possibly adding links to the following With Geological time as the header (much like calendar has day, week etc below it) Eon, Era, Period, Epoch, Age, Chron

Also seems like there ought to be Century and Millennium and possibly some others? I'd possibly consider including punctual ?

Time translation symmetry[edit]

Have added time translation symmetry to the physics section as this is equally important to T-symmetry, renamed to time reversal symmetry for clarity.--Sparkyscience (talk) 10:10, 11 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
