Maybe some kind of input constraint/check on dates would be helpful on the UI or at least db level?
If you want to help by finding and fixing these take a look at the following report:
Good news: We have that now!
If you enter just 199 now (which I assume is what happened here) you get the error:
The year should have four digits. If you want to enter a year earlier than 1000 CE, please pad with zeros, such as “0123”.
Sadly, this was added in 2018, when this didn’t yet exist, so, yeah, we get to fix it.
nice! I wonder what happened with this one, on closer inspection the last letter of the title is cut as well, maybe related?
there’s a “that’s what she said” joke in there somewhere, I’m sure of it
thx for the useful link!
I’m actually impressed there’s only about 5000 of those
