Please help me with...

What is the standard policy for time, date, number, etc formatting on Wikipedia?

I use ISO 8601 personally, so YYYY-MM-DD then a T and then HH:MM:SS UTC+-##:##. However, I know that mdy and dmy are more common, and 12-hour time is as well. Is there a standard order and hour-cycle?

On numbers, should they be ### ###,## or ###,###.##? That's spaces between sets of three digits and a comma for parts, versus commas between sets of three digits and a period for parts.

    • Is there a page that lays out all of these policies, **such as if third person non-gendered pronouns (they) should be used instead of gendered (he, she) ones, or even down to whether periods are followed by double spaces or single?

Please see the Manual of Style for all of your stylistic questions. Dates are Day Month Year (with no leading zeros for single-digit days). Primefac (talk) 17:14, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
