Template talk:Holydaze/4Sat11

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is set up for 28th Nov, which is correct in 2008, but it seems this is always the Friday after Thanksgiving. Should it be changed to Hokydays/4Fri11 (I.E. fourth Friday in November)? Problem there is if Thanksgiving is on the 30th, Buy Nothing Day would be the 1st of December. Is it possible to make a template for 4Thu11+1 or something like that? weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 06:49, 28 November 2008 (EST)

Thanks giving can never be later than the 28th. - User \scriptstyle h/2\hbar 00:33, 9 December 2008 (EST)
Yes, but the Friday after can be the fourth or fifth Friday of the month (this year it was the fifth, I think?) I thought I commented on this elsewhere... but where, I don't remember. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:07, 9 December 2008 (EST)
Well Int. buy nothing day is the Saturday, however it is only the last if it is either the 29th or 30th so a simply great equal will fix the problem. - User \scriptstyle h/2\hbar 01:14, 9 December 2008 (EST)
There is no "intl BND". It's black friday in the states, and the saturday after elsewhere. I suggest deleting.... ħumanUser talk:Human 01:20, 9 December 2008 (EST)
Well it is not like it is a proper day (not a national holiday or UN day), just a protest holiday. The only thing I have against deleting it is I have it working now. - User \scriptstyle h/2\hbar 01:26, 9 December 2008 (EST)
Oh, well, in that case, fine. Does it run both the Friday and the Saturday, for US and ROW? Just curious... Oh, and did you get that UT + 23 hours thing figured out yet? ħumanUser talk:Human 16:29, 9 December 2008 (EST)
Not yet. It is on my project list for the break. - User \scriptstyle h/2\hbar 23:27, 9 December 2008 (EST)
Excellent, I'm glad you are on it. I suspect it will be brutal to make it work. And that you are up to it. I really like what has become of this template (the main one). ħumanUser talk:Human 00:04, 10 December 2008 (EST)

My solution[edit]

I think it's safe to say that my proposal worked. Dysklyver is the biggest idiot on the wiki. Personally I was going to nominate myself as Supreme Idiot, but even narcissists must admit that there's always someone better worse than them. Congrats.--Don Juan (talk) 14:55, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
