Question

Would it be possible, and okay to, to bring the code for Template:Unsigned and Template:Xsign (including the docs) from Wikipedia and implement them here? With their own pages, respectively. —Whatausername64 (talk) 12:13, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

I don't see what's wrong with the current code. Loudslappingsounds (talk) 16:27, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
Well, with what Wikipedia has, with their current Unsigned template, is that you can add a second argument, for copying the timestamp from the edit history and adding it to the argument, knowing when a user added their own discussion in the talk page;
Like so: {{Unsigned|User|00:00, 1 January 2000}} resulting in — Preceding unsigned comment added by user (talk) 00:00, 1 January 2000 (UTC)
Even the Xsign template takes this a step further by allowing copying both the user's name and time into the argument, making it easier to copy and paste from the history in Xsign, instead of having to type it by hand.
Example: {{xsign|16:27, 9 February 2019 Loudslappingsounds}} resulting in — Preceding unsigned comment added by Loudslappingsounds (talk) 16:27, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

I guess that'd be good. Loudslappingsounds (talk) 15:34, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
