This is a discussion on if, why, and how the home page should or shouldn't be updated/changed. Please share your opinion, suggestions, and ideas!
I'm proposing a home page update. Admin - Home Page Sandbox. It would significantly change how the page is arranged and would make it more mobile friendly. I'm not a wiki wizard, but I do think that this is a significant improvement. Additional content could be added without the page becoming too unmanageable. The down side is the categories available on the home page would be limited to the main ones and a few links for community use.
Please note that the categories chosen are open to discussion and are merely an idea of what could be done and do not represent a final version. In the example Category:Civilizations was removed and would likely became a Category:Society subcategory or removed entirely.
I'm thinking about completely revising the Category:History and all it's subcategories. The main points are.....
- standardize the naming system - Done
- place events into their correct subcategories - Done
- tweak and optimize the Category:Union Time Line layout for easy viewing on any platform - Uses Template:Infobox UTL - Done, just need to add it.
- CLEAN - condense, update and polish every page, verify dates with UTL, ensure that UST and OTT are utilized appropriately
It's a massive undertaking. Do you all think it's worth it?
Category:Religion and Gods, Category:Religion, Gods and Myth, Category:Religon, Gods and Myths, and Category:Legends and Myths all need to be sorted out. I'll get to it when I can, but anyone is welcome to do it. For now I placed them all in Category:Society. I was figuring is could be broken down into just two categories, Category:Legends and Myths for pages dedicated to the legend or myth and Category:Religion for the worship practices, and history of specific religions.
In my analysis of the OTT/UST relationship there appears to be some discrepancy as to when UST would officially start being used. This is important as all future dates will be based of this transition so we best have it done right. If the Julian Calendar and Anno Domini are still the basis for OTT then the 31st of December, 5050 would be the 7th day of 3rd Andiv 2067.
5050 - 2220 = 2830
2830 x 365 = 1,032,950
1,032,950 + 707 (leap years) = 1,033,657
1,033,657 / 500 = 2067.314
0.314 x 500 = 157
157 / 50 (Days per Andiv) = 3 Andiv 7 days
Which would mean that 01/01/5051 OTT would be 08/03/2067 UST (D/M/Y). That contrasts the 2069 UST on Time Keeping Reform of 5050 and 2065.9/2066 on Union Standard Month. This would make 2067 a short year. Wouldn't it be more likely to have the transition on the first day of 2067 or 2068, which would give the OTT a short year and create a symbolic dominance to the new UST?
Wouldn't the "Old Era" and "New Era" on Time Keeping Reform of 5050 be redundant as the old records would keep their original OTT codes and all new records would use the new UST codes. Using O.E. and N.E. would replace the OTT and UST respectively. Just as A.D./C.E. became OTT and is now left behind for UST.
Why did those who still kept OTT skip Dec 31st? I can't see the reason as it would mess up the OTT they were keeping. Wasn't the point of the Reform to force all official timekeeping to be done on the same new scale? And encourage informal use too? I also can't see the Military resisting the date change as days are still the same length, they are just measured slightly different and they can keep calling them what they want.
Is there a reason that the 20 hour day is broken into 1-10 early and 1-10 late? Doesn't that only serve to perpetuate confusion? It would only be useful on a local time schedule, which for the purposes of the Reform, wouldn't matter since local time would be based of the day/night cycle if there was one, or one nearby.
On the ‘Stubs’ pages, I noticed that Able Spaceman is said to be an enlisted rank (rate).
Because I served 10 years in the US Navy, the term actually brings a picture of a being able to do the work of a wet navy boatswain to my mind.
Thinking it over, I believe Able Spaceman should actually be a rating (job type) similar to a wet navy boatswain’s mate described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boatswain%27s_mate_%28United_States_Navy%29.
I can easily picture the Union Navy needing people like this. Also, this would bring tradition into play, something I can see Admirals Stahl and Mc Elligott favoring.
Interested in your thoughts,
I'm having a bit of difficulty picturing which cap style this means. It could be either of these, but I can't figure which you picture.I do know that the US Navy used style 2 as part of its working uniform until the early 1970's, and that it commonly had the ship/unit designation embroidered on it ( as in style 3)
