Hi, BBisa. There's no need to change the BCEs to BCs. The BCE/CE system is a standard way of giving dates. This wiki doesn't have a specific date format that I could find, and the source didn't have one either (after conversion from reference stardates), so I just picked my favourite. -- BadCatMan 00:32, December 17, 2011 (UTC)
- I looked into this a little -- older Star Trek episodes tend to use BC/AD, so we would do this to be true to the source (although it is outmoded and newer sources will probably conform to the standard that is growing more acceptable in the present day) -- although I consider it a bit presumptuous for a brand new user to break links by changing links without correcting their targets in order to facilitate the alteration. If you change a blue link from "BCE" to "BC" and then it turns red, that means you're doing something wrong. -- Captain MKB 14:40, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
Up until now, we've been lowercasing improper nouns in lists (like sidebar templates). I've been correcting instances where you uppercased the improper nouns. -- Captain MKB 14:40, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
