Purpose[edit]

A "resolved" tag may be added to a talk page to give a visual hint that the issue below it no longer requires attention.

This template is to show an item on a talk page has been resolved and there is no dispute in anyone's mind about the outcome. That is, the initial comment or request has been filled, a reply to that effect has been added, and there are no disputed items or issues left to be resolved, and (if required) the article (or other page type) has been updated.

The "resolved" tag is not final and does not close a conversation. If new issues arise, or the item is not fully resolved, please remove the tag. Thus, the tag also helps clarify situations that might otherwise be ignored because a user mistakenly thought the issue was resolved.

This tag can be (and is) also used in admin processes to note that an action item reported to a notice board has been dealt with, and can further be of help on user talk pages to sort messages for archival from those to be retained for continued discussion or follow-up action.

Usage[edit]

Place the following under the topic heading on a talk page:

{{Resolved}}
Resolved

To make an additional comment explaining why the issue is resolved:

{{Resolved|Updated both articles with 2007 data per clear consensus; they are now in sync. ~~~~}}
Resolved: Updated both articles with 2007 data per clear consensus; they are now in sync. – Example 12:34, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

To replace the text "Resolved" with a custom message:

{{Resolved|text=Fixed}}
Fixed

This parameter can also be specified with |2=, or with an unnamed second parameter:

{{Resolved||Fixed}}
{{Resolved|I repaired this yesterday.|Fixed}}

Example[edit]

==Chelonia==
{{Resolved|[[Chelonia]] redirected to [[Green Sea Turtle]], [[Chelonian]] redirected to [[Turtle]]}}
Chelonia currently redirects to Turtle, but ''Chelonia'' is the monotypic genus
 containing the [[Green Sea Turtle]].
Shouldn't it be Chelonian-->Turtle, and Chelonia-->Green Sea Turtle?
