Template:Yearlist

Find all references to year Yearlist ••• See also: Years Policy

The {{yearlist}} template is used in articles about a particular year (such as 3136). It shows the four proceeding years, the four following years, and automatically indicates to which era the current year belongs. When there is no formally-named era for the particular year the template will display TIMELINE.

The template should be placed at the top of the article.

How are eras determined?[edit]

The starting and ending dates are taken from the BattleTech eras entry. Discussions about changing the dates should be made on the BattleTech eras' talk page.
