How come some timestamps look like this



edit on 501031America/ChicagoSat, 19 Oct 2019 20:50:53 -0500000000p3142 by interupt42 because: (no reason given)


And others look like this



edit on 19-10-2019 by LookingAtMars because: (no reason given)


I am guessing it has to do with when you joined?

No, it's one of the account settings. I can't remember the exact cause of that happening, but it's a fairly easy fix IIRC.

I just played around with my account settings and no luck.

No big deal, I was just curious. Thanks

Make the date format mm-dd-yyyy or mm/dd/yyyy

It controls your date. Other users dates are displayed based on their format. You can't change theirs. They have to fix it.

lol, maybe that's the problem. I assume this is the better timestamp because it has a time, city, ect.

I've never seen the city in the edit comment line. Not ever.

On the other hand, I don't really read it as I already know what it is so my eyes don't even pause.

I'll look now though. Thanks for the heads up.

I like quirks and curiosities. It's one of the best parts of software.

I think it uses what you put in your profile as location, so yours would say Schadenfreude. The only thing I am sure of is that there are two different editstamp formats

I could be completely wrong, but somehow I got the idea the edits that showed the city had something to do with using certain mobile devices like smart phones, though not from all smart phones. Exactly how I got that idea I can't remember, but if that's the case, you won't be able to add the city by changing your settings, which maybe if you've tried changing all the settings and nothing duplicates it lends credence to that idea I got somehow.

But if you want to prove my idea wrong which it very likely could be wrong, next time you see the city on an edit timestamp you can ask if a mobile device was used to make the post. If it was made from a desktop computer that proves me wrong. If you see a post from a smart phone without the city that doesn't exactly prove my idea wrong because I don't think it happens with all smartphones/service providers, only in particular cases.

I think it is due to the date function interpreting certain characters to indicate a specific part of a date to be displayed. It is not set to yield a normal format.

It is caused by it thinking the output should show the timezone.

"America/Chicago" is the central TZ code.

edit:

Probably has the characters "year" in the date format data. The "e" is the cause of the TZ.
This assume the PHP date function. It might be different or modified here.

Thanks for the info.

I typically don't use ATS from my phone. I can't stand typing on those itty bit faux keyboards. I spend more time correcting than I do typing.

The good news is I bought a smoking new Lenovo laptop recently: Core I7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD drive, and kick-ass nVidia 1060 graphics, and it only weighs 1.1 lbs!

I love this machine - especially the Lenovo (Thinkpad) keyboard.

edit on 21-10-2019 in the Gateway Lunar Launch platform by Guyfriday while in Lunar Orbit because: reasons


Is it possible that the person did a posted edit rather than a real edit like what I just did?

check above

If you put letters instead of numbers in the date format it changes it.

Use the (editby) (/editby) where ()=[] and type whatever you want. It looks like a real edit without the hassle of having to screw up. Could just be a porter being clever. It could be a setting that somewhere in the code too (like the mystery flags we get from time to time). I'm just giving a possibility with my post.

Oh neat, so that's you do it. Good to know just in case someone has a similar issue. My posts were just fun.

Mine above are real.

I know how to make it show up 3 different ways now.

Leave date format blank or use correct string and get the short one.

Put a few letters in date format and get a little longer one.

put too many letters in date format with a paste and get the long one.
