Wikipedia Timestamp[edit]

I believe this article should have a link to the Wikipedia policies or protocols on timestamping. I've been searching, and haven't found any such policies. gnomelock 00:18, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

You look for Wikipedia:Timestamp, which redirects to Wikipedia:Signatures. -- ADNghiem501 (talk) 01:29, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Some bot is linking to Timestamp when talking of Wikipedia signatures on user talk pages. See "what links here". --kAtremer (talk) 11:43, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

The article links to three terms as if it was a disambiguation page[edit]

I offer to rename this article to Trusted timestamping and create a separate Timestamp disambiguation page, which will link to:

  • Unix time
  • Time code
  • Trusted timestamping
  • ICMP Timestamp.

I've done that. The article on timestamps in digital signature is moved to Trusted timestamping. --kAtremer 07:58, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
It was an improvement much over-due! Thanks for doing it! It finally opens up for an improvement of the Trusted timestamping article as I have suggested in Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Cryptography#Trusted_timestamping. Cheers. Except the disambiguation link to trusted timestamping involves the assumption of public key signature trusted timestamping I am trying to correct...

Types of timestamp[edit]

  • Unundapted: in a record of something (i.e. edition, loading and so on) with the day and time of edition or loading and don´t updates never more (i.e. 15:16 UTC).
  • Updated:
    • Updates everytime the page is edited. Up to a new edition, the date and time is stored. It can only show the last edition date and time.
    • Updates, with the current date or time, everytime the page is read or reloaded.

Article thinks it's a disambiguation[edit]

This is a stub with a semi-disambiguation attached, not a true disambiguation. Machete97 (talk) 22:22, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Confusing article[edit]

This is a pretty confusing article. I added a see also link to Timestamp-based concurrency control but that article is even in more need of help (has had a tag since 2007). But the entire computer science angle is missing here. History2007 (talk)

Examples - names of format?[edit]

Those examples listed - do they have names? As in, "Timestamp according to standard whatever" ?--Cyberman TM (talk) 21:56, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

In examples section the 4th bullet point (12569537329) is wrong. It is 1 digit too long to fit a 1 second precision timestamp. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.254.116.82 (talk) 14:03, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

The fourth bullet is still there showing an eleven digit timestamp. If this is not a format humans can easily interpret, so if it is a valid timestamp, it should indicate what format it is in (if it is Unix time, it's representing a distantly future date). [[User:Mwalle|Mark]] (talk) 14:59, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

The fourth bullet seems to be a typo. The Japanese version of this page looks pretty much the same, except rather than "12569537329", it has "1256953732(UNIX時間)" instead, which makes more sense. Ahiijny (talk) 02:03, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Tue 01-01-2009 6:00[edit]

Is "Tue 01-01-2009 6:00" Month_Day or Day-Month? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.147.35.23 (talk) 14:54, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
