Description
This is for use when users do not sign their posts in talk pages.
Syntax
  • Type {{Unsigned|username}} where "username" is the name of the user who did not sign their post.
  • You can also add the date via a second parameter: Type {{Unsigned|username|date}}. Use ~~~~~ to get the current date.
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.
  • There's a third parameter the effect of which is to invert the two preceding ones. Its value can be anything, as long as it is present: Type for example {{Unsigned|date|username}} (note the empty last parameter!). This last configuration is designed for the users to just copy the time username from the edit history, without needing to re-order it.
  • The style=short parameter removes the last phrase, in case the one who forgot to sign is an experienced user.
