Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template can be used to indicate a talk page has become very long.

Since the template can come off as confrontational, its use on user talk pages is discouraged.


  • {{Archiveme}} - places page in Category:Archive requests.
    • First sorted by largest pagesize in KB then by page name
  • (very) long will show the page size when moused over.
    • Pages <= 75K will say "long" (but consider simply removing this template, since the length is within guidelines)
    • Pages <= 150K will say "long"
    • Pages > 150K will say "very long"
  • Pages >= 225K will have the background turn red

Consider archiving the page yourself instead of using this template. Do not, however, modify the user talk page of another user without their permission.

If you see this and you'd like to set up automatic archival, please find easy instructions at Help:Archiving a talk page#Automated archiving. Before setting up automatic archiving on an article's talk page, please establish a consensus that archiving is really needed there.
