Negative date errors

(I’m posting it here because I can’t make a GitHub account)

The item infobox on the left should specify whether the date is BC or AD

Also it shouldn’t be possible to select year 0 in the timeslide as it does not exist

Thanks, I opened an issue to track this bug:

0 is 1 BCE according to the ISO 8601 standard, but several of our software components are off by one. A fix to the time slider is awaiting deployment that will introduce a BC/AD field so that you can enter “1” and “BC” and it’ll be treated as 1 BCE without you having to know about this nuance. “0” will also be ignored as part of this change.
