Just wondering, this has been bugging me for a while: When exactly do all these years and dates come from? I don't remember any of the shows being big on giving concrete dates for their events. - Caswin 21:43, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

- Hm... by the sound of that, it sounds as if we want to avoid being too conjectural regarding dates. However - unless I'm missing something, and to be sure, it wouldn't be the first time - most of the individual dates seem to be as conjectural as the one date I can find specifically noted as such, when Starro attacked Superman. In The Future especially, how do we know all those individual years following the Near-Apocalypse of '09? To a lesser degree, unless we're going by when the episodes aired, what about all the events of the Silver Age? Is it based on airdates? I'm looking, but the discussion doesn't seem to address that, beyond a reference to Bruce Timm specifically not operating that way... - Caswin 01:19, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
- I think that every date — besides a handful from Batman: The Animated Series — are conjectural. I'm not a big proponent of these pages. The creative team didn't go into specifics regarding dates and timelines for a reason. I don't think it's our place to guess them. ― Thailog 14:39, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
Further division of timeline
I couldn't help but think it would be good to divide the timeline up further. It would be good to create a category for the far future. After all Booster Gold's era of origin is at least 400 years (408-439 years to be precise- give or take 31 years) after Terry McGinnis' lifetime. The Legion of Superheroes' era is at least 900 years (925-956 years to be precise-give or take 31 years) after Terry McGinnis' lifetime. Just saying that that is the far future even from the Batman Beyond Era.
