Re: Literacy[edit]

I said "'next year' will refer to 2021 in just a few days". Meaning, if you write "next year" on an encyclopedic article and someone happens to read that passage after January 1, 2020 (which is merely nine days away, as of this writing), the phrase "next year" will refer to 2021 instead of 2020. That creates unnecessary vagueness which will not stand the test of time (not even a short time), and it would have to be changed to "this year" in just a few days. This is all easily avoidable by specifying the year as 2020 and not just "next year".

Before insulting me by telling me I'm illiterate and have no concept of calendars, perhaps you should take a moment to read what I actually wrote and check your own calendar.

Adding to this, personal attacks are not allowed in the wiki, which your remarks clearly had the intention of doing so even if you didn't explicitly say any strong words. Also letting you know in advance that further aggresive responses to corrections from other people will only worsen your reputation here. 034.png DracoRex, Creator of the Land 22:51, December 23, 2019 (EST)
