[edit] Cover article, again (sticky)

It's still a good article. FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 20:52, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

It's a good article (hence the silver), and the (fairly minor) referencing problems can probably be fixed easily... But it doesn't seem quite comprehensive enough for a cover story... Carpetsmoker (talk) 00:30, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Fact-tagging

I wrote that section cribbing from the Wikipedia article, that's where the cites would be - David Gerard (talk) 23:58, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Good to know; thanks. I was just going over the page to see what needs to be done to make it a cover story. I'll check wikipedia later and add the refs. Carpetsmoker (talk) 00:13, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
I remember we wanted to get it to cover story at the time, but didn't quite make it before the world ended - David Gerard (talk) 10:42, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Why is there nothing about the 2011 apocalypse?

While 2012 apocalypse theories might have been crazy, the 2011 ones were just out of this world. Someone's gotta write an article about it. AmericanExceptionalism2016 (talk) 23:58, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Not sure what ones you're talking about specifically. Look at list of predictions of the end of the world and see if they're mentioned. --Ymir (talk) 06:58, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Suggestion

Would it be possible to have a 'Today's date according to the Mayan calendar is...' box? 86.146.100.87 (talk) 21:24, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Nope. That's because there's several Mayan calendars. Also, on the scale of deep time, the Mayans didn't appear to share our "linear" concept of time (where time moves in one direction, from future to past). So as far as my limited understanding goes, it'd be difficult — if not pseudohistorical — to attempt something like that.
