Purpose[edit]

{{Unsigned2}} Used to label unsigned comments in a discussion, in particular when cutting and pasting the username and date from a page history. This template is like {{Unsigned}}, reversing the arguments and appending (UTC) to the time.

Usage[edit]

{{Unsigned2|date|username}}

date
datestamp, found by converting the local date and time in the edit history to UTC
username
name or IP of user who left comment

Unfortunately the template itself is not capable of converting the time. If you frequently use this template, or otherwise refer to UTC, you could consider setting your local time in the preferences to UTC.

Example[edit]

With the preferences set at UTC-7, the history entry for the creation of this talk page shows

23:17, 17 Jun 2005 Jpgordon

Thus we use

{{Unsigned2|6:17, 18 Jun 2005| Jpgordon}}

which gives

—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jpgordon (talkcontribs) 6:17, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)
