Excellent job... why is it published under sept 11? I'm going back to crying in my beer.

Hmmm, I would be wondering the same thing. Surely the last day of the test match was on Monday September 12? I'll change it soon if no-one objects.
I'm not sure if this is mentioned anywhere in a policy document, but dates seem to be relative to the US. Which is annoying for me here in Australia. All the dates are a day early.
Dates are date of publication, in UTC time--Cspurrier 01:09, 14 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
No they aren't. The dates are set by the people who write the article, and they may use their local time. Whenever I write an article (about Australia) I set the date to whatever it is in Australia. - Borofkin 01:31, 15 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
The problem with using local time (instead of UTC) is that article may be published behind "new" articles. This decreases their visibility. I would think an author (or authors) would want the most visibility for their contributions. I did also believe that our policy (or at least general practice) was to publish based on UTC. --Chiacomo (talk) 01:33, 15 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
