Timeline Image

I been working with a cool program that does a timeline bar. . I can even make it clickable if SVG files are enabled. --Shane (T - C - E) 12:36, 23 April 2006 (CDT)

I doubt that the visual aid will benefit this article. --Peter Farago 12:40, 23 April 2006 (CDT)
In it's very impomplete form. Just giving an idea. Once i figure out all the parmaters then I will post a more realisisc bar. --Shane (T - C - E) 12:43, 23 April 2006 (CDT)


Days v. Day

I am very confused. I am working on the timeline image, and days are driving me nutz. Days are like 46 days. 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 and so on... and day is a single day right? --Shane (T - C - E) 15:32, 23 April 2006 (CDT)

There's not much meaningful difference, we switched from "46 Days" to "Day 46" about halfway through season one and never corrected the older entries. Side note - your timeline right not indicates that "33" spanned five days, but it really only took place over about three hours at the end of day 6. --Peter Farago 10:05, 24 April 2006 (CDT)

Dating "The Captain's Hand"

"Epiphanies" and the Cain Trilogy take place at Six Months after the Cylon attack. It's stated that mining operations in "Scar" lasted one month. It's stated that one month passes between "Sacrifice" and "The Captain's Hand". It's stated that the next episode, "Downloaded", is 9 months post-attack. Start at Six months, plus 1 for "Scar", plus 1 for stated gap between Sacrifice and Captain's Hand, Captain's Hand takes place at least 8 months post-attack. *****Do we have any idea whatsoever how much time passes between Captain's Hand and Downloaded? Because I'm going consider it just "0ver 8 months" I guess. --The Merovingian (C - E) 21:47, 11 July 2006 (CDT)

Nevermind, LDYB I firmly dates Captain's Hand as 1 month before it. --The Merovingian (C - E) 21:57, 11 July 2006 (CDT)
Yep. --Peter Farago 23:16, 11 July 2006 (CDT)

Future Events

Is it possible to delete the furute events that have a line through them? I really don't see the point of keeping them.--Quig 16:07, 6 September 2006 (CDT)

You know, I kind of like the 'timeline graveyard.' It shows what issues arose and that the show is taking care of them in one way or another. ... Now, better organizing/displaying it is another matter. That lineout stuff is none too pretty. - Keithustus 14:33, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

"Circa:" the enemy of all anal historians

Now that LDYB II and the beginning of season 3 has provided us some hard dates, I would really appreciate it if someone (Bart voice: "Not me!") rigorously checked the dates of the events of LDYB II and Occupation. From there, it would be relatively easy to accurately sequence the webisodes and subsequent season 3 episodes. I just sped through Occupation/Precipice/Exodus to get their timelines at least worked out, but we're in a bad place that pretty much everything after the Cylon arrival starts with "c. Day ###" - Keithustus 14:28, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

I know circa is ugly, but we can't clean anything up. We know when Cylon occupation began relative to the settling of New Caprica, and we know when Season 3 opened relative to the occupation, but the settling of New Caprica itself is only known to have taken place in the vicinity of nine months after the fall of the colonies. Thus, we are stuck with the "circa". --Peter Farago 01:50, 21 November 2006 (CST)
