Death date template[edit]

Hello. Your efforts to add the "death date and age" to biographical articles is much appreciated. I wanted to point something out to you, though. A lot of the articles (especially those focusing on people from Europe) use a different date format. In Europe they generally use 1 May 2007 instead of May 1, 2007. The template that you've been using formats the date as May 1, 2007. This becomes a problem of consistency on pages that already have dates in the format 1 May 2007. An easy fix for you is to alter the template slightly when entering it. Change it to "euro death date and age" for those cases. I hope you find this useful. -- Mufka (user) (talk) (contribs) 22:04, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
