I discovered that the system message MediaWiki:Perfcachedts, used on pages such as Special:WantedPages, is affected by the time-zone offset in personal preferences. Does anyone know whether there is a way to make it show a timezone-independent timestamp (UTC preferably)? --BryghtShadow 07:34, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
- I doubt there is a reliable way. The time appears to be generated by MediaWiki engine PHP. I suppose you could write an extension that would override the time and show UTC, but that is clearly not a simple way. I'm assuming by "is there a way" you meant relatively simple.
