Template:Merge

From Void Linux Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Purpose

Propose an article (or parts of it) to be Wikipedia-logo.png merged with another article.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of articles or sections that duplicate effort or otherwise overlap with an existing article's scope. Ensure to rationalize the proposed merge with the second argument and possibly also on the flagged article's discussion page.

The basic syntax is

{{Merge|Article to merge with|reason}}

You can override the default discussion page with a third optional argument:

{{Merge|Article to merge with|reason|Talk:Article to be merged#Merge discussion}}

Alternatively you can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named section parameter:

{{Merge|Article to merge with|reason|section=Section name}}

Articles where this template is used are automatically added to Category:Pages with merge proposals. Users are encouraged to participate in merger discussions or simply complete the merge (if sensible). The {{Merge}} flag should be removed after the merge is completed or the proposal is rejected.

Technical note

The talk page is linked through an external link to avoid polluting Special:WantedPages when the talk page does not exist.

Examples
