Editors often forget to sign and date their comments. It's common in larger wikis to use a template such as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Unsigned2:
"— Preceding unsigned comment added by Example (talk • contribs) 13:45, 28 February 2010 (UTC)"
The links to the user's name, talk, and contributions pages are provided through https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:User_link.
If the date is passed through the template the "Reply" button fails to launch the tool.
