📚 Documentation

This is the documentation for {{GE}}.

These templates convert an A.D. (Anno Domini) date into the equivalent G.E. (Godville Era) date as used in the Godville Times and when documenting the history of Godville. This is the first ever conversion tool of its kind (for the English Godville at least).


  • d - the day
  • m - the month (accepted as a month name or number)
  • y - the year

By default (if no parameters are unspecified), the current date is the one that gets given.

Instead of writing 'GE', it will also work if you write 'ge' instead.

You don't actually need to put those parameters, it'll use any positional parameters you give it in the order month|day|year (see the third example below).



  • Converts standard (Gregorian) calendar dates to a date in g.e. units, with no additional formatting.
  • Outputs the current date (in g.e. units) with no parameters.

{{date ge}}

  • Converts or formats dates g.e. units, with " g.e." appended (protected against line-wrapping).
    Note: Take care when using this template. Because its output ends with a period, it should not be followed by a period even at the end of a sentence.
  • When called in one-parameter form (either |ge= or a single unnamed parameter), outputs that value with " g.e." appended.
  • Outputs only a " g.e." suffix, when called with no parameters.
  • Does NOT support converting the current date to g.e. (a feature that as of this writing[1] is never used anywhere on the wiki)
