I added this template because I thought it might be more convenient to have a template. However, it does not look as beautiful as it probably could but I don't know how to improve it.

Very clever, and far easier than what I was doing. Stifynsemons 23:55, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

How are centuries and decades numbered in Lojban, i.e. does pamoi nanca belong to pamoi na'acto and pamoi na'ardekto (like in English) or to nomoi na'acto and nomoi na'ardekto (in this case 2007moi nanca would belong to 20moi na'acto and 200moi na'ardekto)? --Danogo 09:59, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

According to the dates page on the lojban.org wiki, 4 digit dates seems to be the general consensus. Bobas has suggested that centuries be like decades and years, and forget the N+1 nonsense. The suggestion is that 0001moi nanca is a member of 000moi na'ardekto, and a member of 00moi na'acto. Of course, the leading zeros can be elided with no confusion. I agree with this convention as well. See category:talk:nanca for Bobas' comments. Stifynsemons 23:55, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
I changed it according to your suggestion. The template will also put the articles where it is included into the na'acto and na'ardekto categories automatically. However, if automatic categorization is not useful or causes problems it can be removed easily. --Danogo 10:03, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
I like the automatic categorization idea. One caution: there are several non-chart and non-category references to na'acto, which are probably wrong, but need to be fact checked to make sure which way they need to be. Perhaps someone might make a na'acto sisku and hunt them down. Stifynsemons 11:23, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
