Usage

The syntax for this template is simple: {{retired}} if you want it to display the above, or {{retired|date=date (any format is acceptable)}} if you want it to display a date along with the above. You can also add a reason for your retirement as {{retired|reason=your reason here}}.

You can also change the template text from the default 'RETIRED' by adding an unnamed parameter.

You can display the message This user has permanently retired from editing Wikipedia. instead of the default one by adding |alttext=yes.

To opt out of newsletters and mass messages when you retired, place it on your talk page and set the mms switch to no, as follows: {{retired|mms=no}}. This will add your user page to Category:Opted-out of message delivery

Retiring implies that you will not resume editing at any later date. If there is any significant chance that you might eventually return, then it is preferable to announce an indefinite {{Wikibreak}}.

Editors should promptly remove this template from their user pages if they resume editing for any reason. If still editing on rare occasions, use {{semi-retired}} in preference.

This template should be placed on a userpage only by the concerned user, or by his or her request.
