This template converts a YearMonthDay timestamp into the standard LGPedia date string.
This adds today.
By manually adding a timestamp, you can pre- or post-date videos.
Dates have to be formatted year, month, date; zero-padded, no punctuation. If you did it right, you should have a total of eight digits. Christmas Eve 2007 would be formatted as
20071224, for example.
For comparison and understanding:
- Today is Tuesday, May 22, 2018.
- In digits, this would either be 05/22/2018 (US) or 22/05/2018 (majority of the world).
- Formatted correctly for the template, it would be 20180522.
