Template:Please ping

(please use {{reply to|your username will show up here}} on reply)

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

This template is intended to be used when you are replying on a high-volume discussion page, and intend not to add the page to your watchlist, instead expecting people to link to your user page when replying to you. It may be either substituted or transcluded, but is better substituted, as it will include your username and help talk pages load faster.

Usage

:::: Your message {{subst:Please ping}} ~~~~

This will display (please use {{reply to|Example}} on reply).

When used without substituting, it will display (please {{reply to}} on reply).

Parameters

  • 1: If set to no, will display (no need to ping me on reply)
Example: {{subst:Please ping|no}}
Example: {{subst:Please ping|tps=yes}}
  • nw: If set to yes, will display (I'm not watching this page – please {{reply to}} on reply)
Example: {{subst:Please ping|nw=yes}}
  • big: If set to yes, will display message at the normal text size rather than small: (please {{reply to}} on reply)
Example: {{subst:Please ping|big=yes}}
  • thanks: If set to yes, will display (please {{reply to}} on reply; thanks!)
Example: {{subst:Please ping|thanks=yes}}
  • cond: replaces "on reply" with a custom condition under which you'd like to be pinged
Example: {{subst:Please ping|cond=if you need my attention}} generates (please {{reply to}} if you need my attention)
