What happens to server call when no time stamp is in the call?

whenWhat happens to server call when no time stamp is in the call? I'm creating a static pixel to temporarily track a page until we get our implementation on it. I'm just using a basic img tag with the standard info I want to pass. My concern is I do not want to obviously pass the same time stamp in every time so I thought I should remove it from the query string. The question is, if a server call goes out without a time stamp name/value pair in it, what happens on Adobe's collection servers? Does Adobe give it a time stamp?

Adobe gives it a time stamp, so you can safely remove the t= query parameter from your static image request. 

The t= query parameter (date/time in DigitalPulse Debugger) is used to populate the Time Zones report, all other metrics are calculated using a time that is set by the data collection server when the request is received. In your case it makes sense to remove it so you don't have incorrect data on the Time Zones report.
