Description dhneum 2005-09-13 15:57:55 UTC
The time format in the fourth "Date format" option of the en.wikipedia user 
Preferences is inconsistent with the first three date and time options. 
Please remove the seconds from the fourth option (ISO option) to make it 
consistent with the first three date and time format options. Seconds 
should be omitted regardless of which option is chosen here. 
Nonetheless, either consistently implement seconds for all four options, 
or consistently omit seconds for all four options. Thanks.
Comment 1 dhneum 2005-10-16 16:51:39 UTC
What I mean here is, the four-tilde signature time stamp should always 
omit seconds regardless of which date format is chosen for a site. But the 
software currently erroneously lists hh:mm:ss, instead of only hh:mm, if 
the ISO date/time option is the system default, which is inconsistent and 
wrong. The other three date/time options don't include seconds in the 
four-tilde signature time stamp, and neither should the ISO option. 
Seconds are irrelevant, and look ridiculous, for the four-tilde signature 
Comment 2 Franz Gstättner 2006-12-17 12:07:41 UTC
I have the ISO-format in my options. And i use the seconds in the lists (Version/
Contributions) many times. Two Edits in the same minute was made often. To search 
sockpuppets i play the contributions of some users in one file and sort by time. 
Seconds are a must for me.
