We should set a standard for abbreviating dates in this template. A lot of the world does it like this: dd-mm-yy. In the good old US of A it's done like this: mm-dd-yy. This can lead to confusion when talking about days like March 1: is it 1-3-17 or 3-1-17? I recommend this way: yyyy-mm-dd on xkcd's recommendation. :P What do you think? -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 00:34, 1 March 2017 (CET)
- I'd say we should use the one that's used in the transcripts, so you can copy&paste it into the searchbar and find the post immediatley. E.g Mar 11 2009, 07:37 PM. We should specify the time because rhere are at least seven different post for each day, so it does not cause confusion. ~OnionShark 07:11, 1 March 2017 (CET)
- Alright. I think that happened because a colon at the start of a line creates an indent even if the colon is wrapped in switch loops, if statements, etc. like in the template.
- BTW OnionShark, good call on the date format. Let's use this format (Jan 01 2017) since it makes searching through the Greg text files easier. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 09:14, 4 March 2017 (CET)
OGD Archive Updates
I thought I'd let you know that I've added a copy of the Farshtey Feed to the OGD Archive website. The best part is that I've added a way to link to individual bullet points, which I imagine would be pretty useful for citations :) . Here's an example of what that looks like. Just click on the bullet point to get a permalink to it. I've also fixed up some markup errors and gotten rid of unnecessary spoiler tags (everything in spoiler tags used to be unreadable). Every post has a link to the original post on BZPower to boot.

- That's great and will be very helpful! Thanks Planetperson! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 20:51, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
Got another update for ya! I added the ability to cite individual questions in the OGD. More precisely, you can link to individual lines or ranges of lines within a single post. This makes it much easier to locate questions within posts that have dozens of different questions. More info here.
