Rename[edit]

This template isn't really in line with our usual naming convention. I would propose to rename it too Template:PD-old-1923. Multichill (talk) 17:57, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

In that case, you should probably propose renaming {{PD/1996}} as well to keep the two consistent. Other than that, I don't care much either way. 95.166.78.149 16:34, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

It seems like someone already created {{PD-old-auto-1923}} which seems to be the same. --Jarekt (talk) 13:39, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

That's _not_ the same. For example {{PD-old-auto-1923|1918}} displays as

Public domain The author died in 1918, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 90 years or less.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1923.

This file has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.

but should display the author's deathyear as {{PD-old-90-1923|1918}} does:

Public domain The author died in 1918, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 90 years or less.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1923.

Fixed that. {{PD-old-auto-1923}} wasn't passing on the year parameter to the subtemplates. Rd232 (talk) 10:58, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
