Movement of month before year on rosters

I'm sorry if my last edit threw you off. The reason why I changed it was due to the fact that even though there is not a true standard when it comes to adding months, I have mostly seen this method used on many other wiki pages and it has worked out fine when arranging the dates of the fleet. When organizing the fleet in this manner with the month in the front, you still organize it by the year. The month is like an extra piece for more specific detail.

Why wouldn't they fall into place? I have done so with no problems.

I guess you could attempt to do so, but I am not sure if this is the best idea. Reading the month first felt much easier to read compared to the month behind the year.

It is true that most of them do not have the month, but when one does have a month in front of it, it is still easy to read. I don't see how it would be difficult. Seeing 3/1969 instantly tells me it is from March 1969. Where as seeing 1969 (3) actually makes it harder to tell (in my opinion).

I meant you could attempt to "bring this up as possible change to the mos of the section for rosters," but I feel it probably isn't the best idea. Having the month in the front actually helps the "alphabetical sorting" style, as you would have 3/1969, then 4/1969, then 1/1970, etc.

Here's a good example of the method I used: http://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Pierce_Transit#Retired_Roster (note: I didn't add the month in this page).


Response #4:

Ah I see what you mean. I never really used that function, so I didn't think about that. I still just find the other way of setting the month in the back just generally harder to read.

Capitalization in sections.

I've seen how the sections on the Toronto Transit Commission fleet roster pages are presented. However, not capitalizing the first letter of the subsequent words following the first word in each section, unless a word is used as a preposition such as "to," makes the roster pages less presentable and the TTC pages aren't a good example. I would like to refer you to the Fictional Transit 1-3 (standardization example) page on how the fleet roster pages should be structured.

Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority - "Fleet Allocation" table.

Good afternoon, readers.

I've been the person creating and making adjustments to the above mentioned table.

Though I'm not claiming to "own" the article, I'm hoping to keep the discussion on this section in one place for all to comment, if needed (of course, temporarily).

Thanks!

I've added the same license plates that you've recently added to the wiki into AutoCheck and get a result for all of them just fine. You may have added some other characters into the license plate field or selected the wrong state. If you still can't get the VINs from those license plates, I'll add them tomorrow in tandem with the VINs of other LFSes owned by the MTA and CTA.
