On international date notation
Hi! I've noticed you make a lot of dated entries. I think the dates are somewhat vague in international context (ie. is 1-2-3 day-month-year or month-day-year) so perhaps it would be better to use e.g. 1-February-3 instead? And if I was the captain of this planet, the date would start with the most significant figure first, ie. year-month-day. :) Thanks for working for (software) freedom!

- Hello! Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure what you mean. I do use the year-month-date format: https://www.fsf.org/events/20111108-fs-stockholm, for instance, means RMS is giving a speech on free software in Stockholm on 2011-11-08.
- Mviinama's probably talking about wiki page titles like this:
- Event:Richard Stallman/Richard Stallman (RMS) Speeches/10-8-2011 -Event 1
- Could be August or October.
- (It might also be better if "Richard Stallman" was only once in the title - but that's probably something the wiki admins would have to look at.) Ciaran 07:31, 8 October 2011 (EDT)
- Ciaran's interpretation is correct, sorry for being vague. Mviinama 14:48, 10 October 2011 (EDT)
I've updated the instructions, and also removed the image that was in section 2, because it no longer represented what someone using Gmail in Standard View would see.
href links don't work on this wiki
E.g. Event:LibrePlanet/LibrePlanet/9-20-2014 -Event 3. Instead the syntax for external links is [URL title], so for example [https://fsf.org Free Software Foundation]. Mviinama 02:15, 28 August 2014 (EDT)
href in this case more reader friendly than wiki markup
Thanks for the feedback. The month view inserts the raw HTML for the event, but the day view uses wiki markup, which does not allow the anchor tag. Since there's no workaround that wouldn't both involve modifying code and affect all past-event listings, and since it's more important for the the month view to be more reader friendly than the day view, I will continue to use href.
