Description Colin Pitts 2004-12-23 06:18:15 UTC
In MW 1.3ish, a feature was added where entering five tildes ('~~~~~') into an
edit text field generated a timestamp.

Now it generates a signature and timestamp followed by a tilde (that is, it
behaves like '~~~~' followed by '~').

Six tildes ('~~~~~~') generates the timestamp.

Apparently a typo, an unrelated change changed it from 5 to 6. Have put it back.
