— Preceding unsigned comment added by an unspecified IP address

Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Used to sign anonymous unsigned comments, as no User page should exist for anonymous ips. This template is similar to {{unsigned IP}}, but with the arguments reversed for easier copying from the edit history.

Usage

Parameters

{{subst:unsignedIP2|date|user name}}

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

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

With user parameter

Typing: {{subst:unsignedIP2|03:39, 22 January 2008 (UTC)|255.255.255.255}} will yield:

— Preceding unsigned comment added by 255.255.255.255 (talk) 03:39, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Without user parameter

Typing: {{subst:unsignedIP2|03:39, 22 January 2008 (UTC)}} will yield:

— Preceding unsigned comment added by an unspecified IP address 03:39, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
