Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

The {{Discussion top}} and {{Discussion bottom}} templates are used to close discussions on a talk page or a noticeboard.

When used on a talk page, these templates should only be used by uninvolved editors or administrators in conjunction with the talk page guidelines and relevant advice at Wikipedia:Refactoring. They should not be used by involved parties to end a discussion over the objections of other editors.

Usage

Place {{Discussion top}} below the header containing the discussion, then place {{Discussion bottom}} at the end of the discussion. A summary of the conclusions reached may be included as a parameter in the former.

Again: Place them below the header. Do not include the header, it will break archiving bots!

Example

== Header ==
{{Discussion top|reason=The result of this discussion was '''template created'''. ~~~~}}

I suggest that we make a template to note completed discussions. [[User:Example|Example]] ([[User talk:Example|talk]]) 13:05, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
* How about calling it ''discussion top'' and ''discussion bottom''? [[User:Jimbo Wales|Jimbo Wales]] ([[User talk:Example|talk]]) 06:44, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

{{Discussion bottom}}

Would produce:
