Usage[edit]

This templates is used for substing in as the date parameter when nominating a valued image candidate or a valued image candidate set. It displays the current time in the format:

YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM (UTC)

Thus, it sorts alphanumerically in ascending order (oldest first), which is convenient when using it as a sort key in the maintenance subcategories to Category:Valued image candidates and Category:Valued image set candidates. The template shall be substituted to freeze the time of nomination:

 {{subst:VI-time}}

leading to: 2008-04-30 21:52 (UTC) (which was the date and time the usage was first documented in this template).
