Bumping thread. ~~~~

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

PurposeEdit

This is a wrapper for the invisible template {{do not archive until}} that is used to prevent bots archiving a discussion thread. It produces a visible message that the thread has been bumped. It will auto-sign the notification. It changes the default number of days until auto-archival to 30.

ParametersEdit

The template takes one optional integer parameter to specify the number of days to prevent the thread from archiving. If the parameter is omitted, the template will set the thread to archive in 30 days (not 3560 days, the default of the underlying {{do not archive until}} template).

The template's second optional parameter specifies some text to go after the main text, perhaps an explanation for why the bump occurs. You can set it with |2= or |note=.

{{subst:bump|number of days to prevent the thread from archiving|additional note}}
