re:Chat Bot[edit source]

It says that because that is the time in UTC. That is the server time the wiki runs on. It should be the exact same time as your timestamp when you sign your message with ~~~~ (which is what you should do at the end of leaving a message). The bot script uses that time format since then it uses an universal time from which your time can be derived (if you live in the timezone -8, which would be 8 hours earlier than GMT / UTC, you can just subtract 8 hours from the logged timestamp). That is the best system for global use of a chat log (so not limited to timezones), and it's also the system used by almost every major internationally-targeted site.
