Timeline restructure Edit

I noticed User:BananaClownMan changed the structure of this timeline significantly without any consultation. I don't see why the removal of years and the addition of arbitrary headlines for "eras" helps to make this timeline clearer. Especially since there are multiple branches and hence defining the timeline by the leadership of one individual is impossible prior to the Battle of Canary Wharf. I'd like to revert to the previous edition of the timeline, but thought I'd bring it up here first. Danochy 03:06, March 24, 2019 (UTC)

I agree, although I think perhaps the headlines should go by decades rather than individual years or something like that because there’s so many years that only has one story attached to it. SarahJaneFan 14:29, March 25, 2019 (UTC)

I was getting the page ready for an overhaul, where I do what I did with the Doctors, the Master and he River Song timelines; hunt down all the information I can to make the most logical timeline for the Torchwood Institute. This included separating the factions to both reflect the seasons of the show and avoid the Aliens of London dating controversy.BananaClownMan 19:12, March 25, 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough, but to me separating by time period makes more sense. and yes decades are probably the best route to take, as SarahJaneFan says, at least until the 21st century. I also think we should separate by branch, like the Cyberman page has, since the Torchwoods do largely work separately. But let me know what you think.
As for the Aliens of London dating controversy, the only major contradiction is a CIA report, which we have no reason to trust over the vast majority of sources that place Everything Changes in 2007, but that's a conversation for another time. Danochy 05:16, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
