Template:User time zone

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search
{{{1}}} This user's time zone is {{{1}}}.



The first parameter is for your time zone, in the format: UTC either by itself ({{User time zone|UTC}}) or plus or minus a number, according to the time zone you wish to display. For example, in Seattle, Washington, USA, you would use minus eight, plus a form of the second (DST) parameter:

{{User time zone|UTC-8|DST=1N}}

The second parameter, specifying your location's observance of Daylight Saving Time (DST), is optional. Note that different locations have different starting and ending dates for DST. Available options are:

  • |DST=0 if you do not observe DST.
  • |DST=1 if you do observe DST (very ambiguous as to when).
  • |DST=1N or |DST=1S for DST in the Northern/Southern Hemisphere (slightly ambiguous as to when).
  • |DST=from April to September to specify the date range of DST.
