Dates are articles representing a specific day or year.
- Be as specific as possible. The date articles will be used (eventually) to create a "this day in history" feature on the Main Page, so try to list specific days as appropriate. Editors may use the Special:Whatlinkshere page to discover dates within other articles.
- Suggested headers include Births, Deaths, Events, Openings, Closings, Population, etc.
- Label days and years with Category:Days and Category:Years, respectively. Days should use the category sort key format "| mmdd" (e.g. February 24 is "| 0224") and years should use "| yyyy" (e.g. 1802 is "| 1802").
