Timestamp[edit | edit source]

Wikipedia has an article on:

With MediaWiki, it's possible to insert the timestamp of the change you are making into a talk page (or into an article). Four tildes in a row (i.e. "~~~~") puts your username and a timestamp (whatever the time is on the server when you save your changes) and five tildes in a row (i.e. "~~~~~") puts only the timestamp.

See Help:Signatures for more about how "~~~~" and "~~~~~" are expanded in wikitext
