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.

{{Merge|Article to merge with}}

Please link to any existing merger discussion:

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

Flagged pages will be added to Category:Articles For Merge for attention. 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.

Example
