Coordinated Universal Time was a good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There may be suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Kill sub-section on "Daylight saving time" ?
The sub-section on DST (which should hyphenate daylight-saving) seems entirely irrelevant and misplaced. At best one might mention DST, in the preceding sub-section's discussion of time-zones and how they are expressed relative to UTC: it's something UTC doesn't do; and the examples of other zones expressed in terms of UTC can mention how DST affects a zone's offset from UTC. It does not warrant a section of its own, on this page. 220.127.116.11 (talk) Eddy
I'm not sure how to fix it best, but both the second and third paragraphs of the mechanism section introduce the leap second which doesn't make sense. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 19:44, 19 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not done. Because the organizations that created, and currently maintain, UTC use both English and French, and because the word order in the corresponding names are different, UTC is a compromise abbreviation  that does not follow the word order of either English or French.

Has anyone said that? Greenwich Mean Time was renamed Universal Time by scientists in 1925, but unsurprisingly the general public continues to call it Greenwich Mean Time. So when the Royal Greenwich Observatory issues times which appear in diaries, almanacs and newspapers they follow suit. Around 1960 Universal Time was split into three versions - UT0, UT1 and UT2. When an offset was added to Atomic Time and leap seconds were introduced to make a new timescale "coordinated" to Greenwich Mean Time the obvious name to give it was "UTC". That raises the question - is the "Greenwich Mean Time" disseminated by the Royal Greenwich Observatory UT0, UT1 or UT2? It can't be UTC because the calculations are based on celestial rather than atomic motion. The Royal Greenwich Observatory says it's UT1 . 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:21, 15 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
