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 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:
