50 years ago next month workgroup coordination template
I propose creation of a "50 years ago next month" template somehow automatically driven by the timeline of spaceflight data, which could be transcluded in Wikiproject and User namespaces. This would focus the attention of editors on articles which might be spruced up prior to the time when readers will be interested in them.... (sdsds - talk) 08:54, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Might be useful to revive it as we are coming up to some very important 50th anniversary milestones for both Apollo-Saturn and Soyuz-N1/Zond-Proton (UR-500) in the next three to five years.--Abebenjoe (talk) 14:54, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
@Abebenjoe: Fine with me! Do you have time to put together some goals in some sort of timeframe for us to reach? I can help out, but I would rather not try to manage the effort if I can avoid it. Also if you get time to cleanup the to-do list on this page that would be good, I am not sure what some of the bullet points are referring to. I suppose we could probably just wipe the whole thing.

Kees08 looking at the first item, using DMY date formats might cause a lot of grief, even though that's what the USAF uses. I think removing "manned" and "unmanned" and replacing it with "crewed" and "uncrewed" which is NASA's nomenclature is important. It also standardizes on Wikipedia's policy of gender-neutral language WP:GNL. What else do others what to deal with?--Abebenjoe (talk) 13:54, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
That is fine with me. I can help with some stuff as the need arises, but I have several other tasks I am working on at the moment. Kees08 (talk) 07:27, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply. There's some bit the wikipedia stewards need to set in my account profile to allow me to edit any pages on wiki at all using my primary internet connection. Can't really help here until they do their job! (sdsds - talk) 20:10, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
