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

PurposeEdit

This template is used on talk pages to ask other users to ping the poster with any reply. It would normally be placed just before the poster's signature.

SubstitutionEdit

This template must be substituted with the subst: keyword for it to work properly.

Usage and examplesEdit

The most common usage is simply {{subst:Request ping}}

which renders as

If you reply here, please ping me by adding {{u|<Current user name>}} to your message, and signing it.

Where "<Current user name>" is transformed into to the username of the user saving the edit; the template substitutes the magic word {{REVISIONUSER}}.

{{subst:Request ping|Example}}

renders as

If you reply here, please ping me by adding {{u|Example}} to your message, and signing it.

{{subst:Request ping|Example|cond=you want to talk}}

renders as

If you want to talk, please ping me by adding {{u|Example}} to your message, and signing it.

ParametersEdit

first (unnamed) parameter
This should be the user name of the user who wished to be pinged, as Example for User:Example. If not supplied, this parameter is replaced with the name of the user who saved the edit. To keep this from changing with later edits, the template must be substituted using "subst:"
cond
This optional parameter is for text to replace you reply here in the output wih some other condition. It should be appropriate to follow "If" and precede "please ping me." See example above. (alias condition)

AliasesEdit

{{Repi}} and {{ReqP}} are shortcuts to this template.

CreditEdit

Credit goes to User:I dream of horses, who wrote a basically similar piece of code for use in her signature, but without the parameters.
