  • Can anyone explain why this should not be substituted? It seems that the discussion page parameter is vulnerable if the page is later moved, since the default setting uses the page to create the link. So if Wikpedia:Deletion process is MfD'd and later moved to a new project space named, say, Wikipedia:Deletion procedure, the MfD template would link to the non-existent discussion at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia:Deletion procedure. Subst would solve this problem (as does adding the discussion page parameter, but not everyone does that).--Doug.(talk contribs) 17:30, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Lack of Support for MOS Psudeo Namespace[edit]

This template does not properly link to the discussion page of the deletion ducussion on talk pages in the MOS namespace, which has it's talkpages in the Talk: namespace (example here). --nn123645 (talk) 22:57, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Bold by default[edit]

@Headbomb: Unless I'm mistaken, your recent change seems to have broken the format (i.e. " 'Result' ") of a significant portion (if not majority) of the 2,000 translcusions of this template (examples chosen at random: Wikipedia talk:Reach out, Wikipedia talk:PROMINENCE, and Wikipedia talk:IRC channels/wikipedia-en-admins). It was common practice for users to manually apply bold to the result parameter of this template. The pages that appear correctly are those placed by the users who chose not to do so, who seem to be in the minority, or have been altered since then (I fixed a couple, then noticed that one I placed myself was broken, and connected the dots a couple days ago).— Godsy (TALKCONT) 07:58, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Pinging MSGJ and Steel1943, who made the other most recent edits to this template in early 2016 and mid 2015 respectively, for input. The contribution preceding theirs was made in late 2013.— Godsy (TALKCONT) 20:17, 9 January 2017 (UTC)


I've added centering to align with other talk notices - if this broke anything or is contested feel free to revert. — xaosflux Talk 04:51, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
