plutoniumboss created the topic: Full timeline and chronological order
At long last, I have put together a first draft of the full canon timeline and chronological order of all currently published stories. It's in OpenOffice spreadsheet format. There are mistakes, things I have gotten wrong, and things I didn't find enough information to nail down. Please tell me if you find anything that needs to be fixed, things I know need to be fixed are noted by question marks. If you do respond to correct an error, please also tell me which story has the information and give me an idea of where it is so I can confirm. Keep in mind that some stories may contradict each other, especially where days of the week are mentioned it seems.

Also as a bit of a pre-emptive 'just in case', should you discover these story contradictions keep in mind the etiquette policy. These things happen occasionally and are not a big deal. whateleyacademy.net/index.php/forum/the-...olicy-and-ettiquette

That was a pile of work! I would suggest on mine I locked the upper row of dates using the Window Freeze command so that it scrolls with the user. Still trying to figure out how to do the same the story title column.

But great job!

It would be better if you'd saved it in a format that was generally readable, however.
We arent all running open office or office 365

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

I tried exporting to Excel and it told me that there were too many rows and not all would be saved so I decided not to screw around with it. C'est la vie.

For spreadsheet-organized data, you're kidding yourself if you think there's a generally readable format for all software. CSV text, and HTML/XML come close, but you can count on losing any non-text formatting.

However, when someone does need a data set transmitted in a different file format they're normally able to name the non-proprietary formats that their software can import.

Updated version in xls format. Is anyone at all finding this useful? Also, I'm considering adding the WhatIF stories, would that be something anyone wants to see in the future?

Yes, this is very useful. Thank you for the work.

If you do do non-canon works, I suggest putting them on a second sheet, to avoid confusion.

I was considering putting them on the same sheet, but highlighting their rows in some color.
