Template Documentation for Merge

This page is a template and should only be used as part of other articles. For more information, read Help:Template.

Please do not experiment with this template; you could ruin all pages using this template. If you want to edit this template, copy the text to Template:Sandbox, edit and test it there, and copy it back when it works.

Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this template.

This template proposes the merging of pages or sections.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of pages or sections that duplicate effort or otherwise overlap with the scope of other work.

{{Merge|Page to merge with}}

You can supply a reason for the merge in the second argument and/or in the article's discussion page.

{{Merge|Page to merge with|Additional message.}}

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

{{Merge|Page to merge with|Additional message.|Talk:Alternative Page}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Merge. Users are welcome to discuss the propose merge or simply to execute it. The {{Merge}} flag should be removed after the merge is completed or the proposal is rejected.

When you merge pages, don't forget to also merge the contents of the discussion pages.

Example

{{Merge|Template:Merge|This is just a demonstration.}}

will produce:

Tango-two-arrows.png
This material is proposed for merging ...

It should be merged with Template:Merge. This is just a demonstration. (Discuss)
