Description[edit]

The {{Afd-merge to}} and {{Afd-merge from}} templates are intended for use by the editor who closes an AfD debate with a consensus to merge the nominee into another article (or by a different user acting on such a decision).

Instructions[edit]

Upon removing the {{Afd}} notice (if still present), add the {{Afd-merge to}} tag to the top of the nominated article (not its talk page). Use the following format:

{{Afd-merge to|destination article|debate name|debate closure date}}

For example, assume that a debate was closed on 29 July 2015. If the consensus is to merge the nominated article into an article called Topic X, and the debate is located at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Topic Y (second nomination), the tag should be configured as follows:

{{afd-merge to|Topic X|Topic Y (second nomination)|29 July 2015}}


This will generate the following notice:

Also add the {{Afd-merge from}} tag to the top of the destination article's talk page (not the article itself). Use the following format:

{{Afd-merge from|nominated article|debate name|debate closure date}}

For example, assume that a debate was closed on 29 July 2015. If the consensus is to merge an article called Topic Y into the article associated with the talk page, and the debate is located at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Topic Y (second nomination), the tag should be configured as follows:

{{Afd-merge from|Topic Y|Topic Y (second nomination)|29 July 2015}}

This will generate the following notice:
