Usage[edit]

This template may be used to hide (rather than delete) userpages of inactive users. It should only be used on userpages of users who have been inactive for twelve months or more. This is preferable to deleting the page, because if the inactive user returns to editing, they can easily retrieve the content from the page's edit history.

The template takes one parameter, "reason", which can be used to specify the reason that the userpage was blanked. The default reason is "to prevent its contents being indexed by search engines."

Instructions[edit]

This template must be substituted: use {{subst:inactive userpage blanked}}. Substituting this template adds the __NOINDEX__ magic word to the page being blanked, to stop Wikipedia and search engines indexing the blanked page.
