This page is a template. It contains no Arch Linux-related information, but should 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.

A "merge" flag used to suggest merging of two articles.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of articles 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.

{{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}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Merge. 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.

Note: The talk page is linked throgh an external link: this is to avoid polluting Special:WantedPages when the talk page doesn't exist.

Example

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

Merge-arrows-2.pngThis article or section is a candidate for merging with Template:Merge.Merge-arrows-2.png

Notes: This is just a demonstration template. (Discuss in Template talk:Merge#)
