To include a shortcut, pass a parameter: {{Failed|WP:SHORT}}.

Failed proposals are categorized in Category:Wikipedia failed proposals.

When adding this template, it is recommended to provide links to any new proposals that superseded it, if known.

Overview

See also: Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines - Failed proposals

A failed proposal is one for which consensus for acceptance has not developed after a reasonable time period. Consensus need not be fully opposed; if consensus is neutral or unclear on the issue and unlikely to improve, the proposal has likewise failed.

Usage

{{Failed|shortcut}}

The only parameter is optional. If supplied, it displays as a link to the appropriate shortcut page for the proposal. (Note that this is not automatic; MediaWiki cannot determine the shortcut from the page itself. You need to discover or create the shortcut yourself.)
