Recently, Wookieepedia voted to redo the formatting for its year articles, removing the comma in four-digit years (example, "3,956 BBY" was changed to "3956 BBY"). It was a little startling at first, hearing about it, but the more it showed the more it made sense—not leastwise in how most real-world calenders work. So, I propose that we do the same thing here on Star Wars Fanon, that is to say, reworking our BBY/ABY articles so that they drop the comma.
Per a suggestion by Brandon Rhea, this should not deter users from using a pipelink to leave the comma in, should they desire (e.g., [[3956 BBY|3,956 BBY]]).
If this motion is adopted, it will mean a lot of grunt work (possibly done by a bot, but there's no reason why regular users can't do it), but I'm more than happy to work on it.
Admittedly this is somewhat of a minor issue for a Consensus Track, but I also wanted to test out the viability of using the Forum extension for holding a site-wide discussion such as this one. Since I am not aware of a vote-tallying mechanism, perhaps a simple "Yes" or "No" should be the first word of any reply posts, followed by whatever reason one chooses to add. Once a sufficient amount of time has passed, an administrator or the starter of the Consensus Track can count up the votes and, if sufficient consensus has been achieved, make the appropriate changes.
This Consensus Track thread will last for one week, ending on 9 September 2014 at 9:45 EDT (02:45 UTC).
