Lunar Calendar

"On November 18 (lunar calendar)" Do we have to mention Lunar calendar everytime when writing dates?--Shikisoku 17:12, 12 January 2007 (PST)

Since a lot of people get confused, I believe that we do have to mention it's a lunar calendar date whenever possible. Seven 17:16, 12 January 2007 (PST)

I had discussion about this with Kitsuno when writing Timeline. And conclusion was that this wiki takes Lunar calendar. So please stop adding (lunar calendar) until Kitsuno decide what to do.--Shikisoku 17:25, 12 January 2007 (PST)

There is no need to add "lunar calendar" because unless otherwise noted, it is understood as lunar calendar. I just have to update the main page to reflect that. You'll notice that on many of the shinsengumi bios for birth and death I have both. --Kitsuno 19:48, 12 January 2007 (PST)

My point exactly... It has to be noted somewhere (like on the main page. ) Seven 20:37, 12 January 2007 (PST)
The problem you've helped highlight is that there are so few people who actually edit, we pretty much all know the formats, so I'm sure it is a pain for new users to figure out how things need to be done. The "Help" section I have is OK, but pretty basic, I need to really go in and write specific sections for a variety of things, including dates, but also for biographies from different eras - the pre-Edo period biographies have been completely standardized, but those standards don't fit with (for example) the bakumatsu biographies because they contain fundamentally different information. It's on my to-do list, but it will be a slow process, since I dont have a lot of time right now to put all this down. --Kitsuno 22:06, 12 January 2007 (PST)

Nakajima Noboru and Nakajima Nobori are different persons.--Shikisoku 05:57, 5 February 2007 (PST)
