Used to sign anonymous unsigned comments, as no user page should exist for anonymous IPs. This template is similar to {{unsigned}}.

Usage[edit source]

{{subst:unsignedIP|user name|date}}

user name
name or IP of user who left comment
datestamp from edit history (remember to label it UTC)

The datestamp from the edit history appears in your local time that is set in your preferences.

In order for the time to be UTC, adjust it using the difference you designated between the server time and local time.

Examples[edit source]

With date parameter

{{subst:unsignedIP||11:15, 24 January 2008 (UTC)}}

will yield: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (discuss) 11:15, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Without date parameter


will yield: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (discuss)
