there is a place for solar mean time on List of tz database time zones table[edit]

There is a site called (http://www.timeanddate.com/) where you can get solar mean time for the tz database table. I thought it will be a great addition to the table so people can see or calculate time difference before standard time existed.

Example of how the table looks like after the figures are inserted.

Korean time articles[edit]

Currently there are four articles regarding time in Korea. There is Korea Standard Time and Time in South Korea that relate to South Korea as one set, and Pyongyang Time and Time in North Korea that are related to north Korea. I cannot see the purpose of having two articles for each country, since each is geographically small and each within one time zone. Further, each "Time in X Korea" page consists of only two sentences. So I have proposed mergers here for South Korea and here for North Korea. I am placing this notice here as the relevant Project page. Regards, AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 06:16, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

There has been no objections in over a month so I will perform the merges. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 04:31, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Seems reasonable to me. Evensteven (talk) 01:10, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Inactive[edit]

I have marked this project inactive. The last time someone posted a comment here and someone different responded was in July 2013. RockMagnetist(talk) 16:26, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

I suppose that's fair :) ~Kvng (talk) 04:21, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Looks can sometimes be deceiving, though. I saw this when it was posted, and several other things I took note of also. I thought I'd just leave a note now to indicate that this project is not completely moribund. I joined because the subject area of time overlaps other interests and considerations of mine, and I expect to continue to participate in articles and issues that fall in this domain, as the occasion arises. Perhaps there are other editors around here who do likewise, even if they have not found much of anything to comment on at this page, as I hadn't. Evensteven (talk) 01:18, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
It's not about to be deleted, so don't worry. Maybe someone will revive it. RockMagnetist(talk) 03:51, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
No worries. And even the page itself can serve as a drawing point for related issues, which might attract activity as well. Evensteven (talk) 06:21, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
I'm surprised something as mainstream as "time" became inactive. --Binaryhazard (talk) 22:27, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

semi-active[edit]

@RockMagnetist: @Kvng: @Evensteven: @Binaryhazard:I have changed the status of this w-proj to semi-active and I have also added an Article alerts section. Ottawahitech (talk) 16:19, 8 January 2016 (UTC)please ping me

Peter SamFan has changed it to inactive. I would like to see this reverted to semi-active. We had a new editor join in March. Welcome Brateevsky! ~Kvng (talk) 14:13, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

@Kvng: Now, the WikiProject Time template has been restored on Talk:September 1913 (month), because you reverted the edit to the template by George Ho, making it no longer pointless. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 02:42, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
Is it really intended that the scope of this project include timeline articles like this? Technically the article does appear in the Category:Time heirarchary but it seems like this type of article is better handled by Wikipedia:WikiProject Years or Wikipedia:WikiProject History. ~Kvng (talk) 14:45, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Category:Time – problem with alpha sorting[edit]

The sub-categories listed on the category page are not in alphabetic order. "S" and "T" are either side of "L" and when I piped one sub-cat to "M", that preceded "A"! I've reported it to the village pump technical page after trying unsuccessfully to solve it myself. If anyone here can work it out, please do. It could well be something simple but I can't see it. Thanks. BoJó | talk UTC 14:28, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Timeline heading style: 1900s vs. 20th century[edit]

Since the 20th century "officially" began on January 1, 1901 and ended on December 31, 2000, which timeline section heading style is best, i.e. most accurate and least confusing for readers?
