This is the user documentation sub-page for this Template:Unsigned template. This WMF template was copied from an existing template of the same (or similar) name as this, in accordance with the terms of their respective license(s), at either the English Wikipedia (En.Wp), Wikimedia Meta-Wiki ('Meta'), Wikimedia Commons ('Commons'), or other Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) wiki; as found at Template:Unsigned.

Please note that this Unsigned person template must be substituted. Do not merely use {{Unsigned}} — instead, please use {{subst:Unsigned}}.

This template is used to append unsigned comments from a registered user in a talk page conversation with their appropriately wikilinked details. This template is similar to {{UnsignedIP}}.


{{subst:Unsigned | user name | time, day month year (UTC)}}
user name
name of registered user who left comment;
time, date
time and date stamp from edit history.

The time stamps in the edit history list for any talk page appear in UTC, or in the local time if that is set in your preferences. If you did not adjust the time in your preferences, then the times in the edit history list are in UTC.

Talk page times should always be in UTC. So be sure to use UTC time when using this unsigned template. Adjust the time, if necessary, using the difference you designated between the server UTC time and local time. If this is too difficult to figure out, or you are in a hurry, then leave out the time, and only put in the date.
