Universal Timeline


I don´t know if is that the right way to do a suggestion. Sorry if I wrong.

I have a idea for a Graphical Universal Timeline, and I think that Wikipedia is the right place to have it. That timeline showing at first a graphical bar with a zero time by the left side and right now moment by the right side. That graphical bar may be dinamically with a portion zoom, where users can insert and view relevants topics. So, you can analyze a portion time of history with a graphical display of main events.

The graphical idea:

Graphical Timeline Example

The relevance of a topic is increment by viewers and decrement by a time without views (a better algorithm may be developed) so the most important topics (with more views, edits, etc) will be more visiblle. That way to keep visible signifiers topics at the portion of time selected by users.

Do you think we can insert in the main page timeline that Wiki Science Competition has started? We can put the commons logo maybe in that case.--Alexmar983 (talk) 06:53, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

The code should be:

Right?--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:56, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

You just need to edit Template:Main Page/WM News. Looks fine to me. --Base (talk) 12:30, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
