Timeline missing individuals

Can you tell me what's the reason for the timeperiod from 4000 BC to 2000 AD?

We cut off the future as some people complained about it extending automatically for millenia. We thought that 2000 was a reasonable cutoff for items related to Biblical studies. I am sorry if you planned to use it to enter future events.

We extended it backwards from 3000 to 4000 to allow space for those who wanted to add user items of the patriarchs according to a literal interpretation of Genesis.
I'm sorry Helen to begin again but either you made a wrong calculation or I did.
If I take Abraham who I think comes inserted in the Timeline module already and calculate back with Gen 11:10-29 and Gen 5:1-32 I get to 4174 BC (it's possible I made a mistake in calculation, maybe someone can check this?) and this only covers MT not LXX which will go way beyond that due to the discrepancy in Gen 11:10-29.

Even if you can't put in Adam's birthday (would you call it that?),
No, I wouldn't. He wasn't born but created. So I would say it was his creation day.
you can still fit him on the timeline since his lifespan was so long. No major events would be missing going back to 4000.
Well, you are probably right. I should be satisfied.

Just reiterating how helpful it would be to have the early individuals of scripture included in the timeline.
If for no other reason than to see how their lifespans overlapped each other.

It was originally noted in this thread that Adam to Terah (I think) seem to be omitted from the timeline. I will then add that Ezra and Nehemiah are omitted to. I was looking for them to show others the timeline, and what a letdown. They weren't even there! (Their books were listed under "books,") but they weren't listed under people.
Now, I don't know if the Timeline has the same current limitations as the Map--viz., that you can add a place to a map, but not search for it and find it. Why? Please make both the Timeline and the Map allow us users to fully incorporate our own dates. That would make these tools all the better.
Also, on the subject of Timeline, my latest question here was never answered, even though it was four months ago.
