This template is used to close discussions or proposals on a talk page or a noticeboard that have been closed as unsuccessful.

When used on a talk page this template should only be used by uninvolved editors or administrators in conjunction with the talk page guidelines and relevant advice at refactoring. It should not be used by involved parties to end a discussion over the objections of other editors.

Usage[edit]

{{Archive top red|result=Failed|status=}}

Place the {{archive top red}} template below the header containing the discussion, then place {{Archive bottom}} at the end of the discussion.

Do not include main section headers: including main headers will disrupt archiving bots.

Parameters[edit]

This template takes two optional parameters, used for creating a floating box for discussion results:

  • result - the result of the discussion. Generally speaking, this template should only be used if the result is not successful.
  • status - resolved/withdrawn/moved/none, or any short phrase. A brief header (uppercased) to indicate the status of the discussion.

These parameters are passed through to template:Quote box to create the result box.

Examples[edit]

Plain archival

{{Archive top red}}
{{lorem ipsum}}
{{Archive bottom}}

Result box

{{Archive top red
|result = Failed
|status = none }}
{{lorem ipsum}}
{{Archive bottom}}

Result box, no header, bulleted list
