This wiki's time zone is horribly inconsistant, if you look over the Main Page's archieved talk pages you can see that we originally used EST then we used UTC for a bit then CST and now we're using CDT. Awful! When you use <nowiki>~~~~</nowiki> GuildWiki defaults to whatever time the server is set to (which has changed 4 times...). If you've changed the time zone offset in your preferences then the times on talk pages will be different from what you see in a page's history. If you couldn't be bothered converting your own time offset to the server's time then you shouldn't put the date/time in at all because it will only be accurate to + or - 24 hours (depending on your offset and nobody but you knows your offset). If you do convert the time to server time then you should put (CDT) at the end of the second field to indicate the time is correct CDT time. Ie either use <nowiki>{{unsigned|Xasxas256|04:04, 27 May 2006 (CDT)}}</nowiki> or <nowiki>{{unsigned|Xasxas256}}</nowiki> and '''NOT''' <nowiki>{{unsigned|Xasxas256|04:04, 27 May 2006}}</nowiki>
