Automated response: Vagueness in documentation for date fields

The default date range is +/- 10 years around the current year. This isn't made explicit.

For v11 the default min is now 0ad and the default max is now 3000ad. If you want years around the current year you can do like min_year=Y-10,max_year=Y+10.
