Suggested Addition: Recorded Time (RT)

Recorded Time (RT) is based on the Gregorian calendar except that the epoch is that of the world’s first known calendar, which began in 4,241 BCE.

This notation avoids all sorts of dubious biased+arbitrary epochs; monarchies, religious, national, and such. Today's year is trivial to calculate: simply add 4241 to the Gregorian year. Thus, 2017+4241=6258. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lee Carre (talkcontribs) 18:56, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

I think we should stick to calendars that have a substantial following around the year. "Substantial" means millions of people, or more. Jc3s5h (talk) 19:20, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
Source looks like WP:FRINGE. Any documented uses of this calendar? (and yes, substantial use is required) — JFG talk 19:27, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
