Many users state that when they get a message, they will respond on your talk page instead of on their own. In this way each user is very well informed of reply messages by the bright orange "you have new messages" notice a user gets when their talk page is edited. However, such conversations threading back and forth between two talk pages can make reading back a conversation quite cumbersome even for those involved, and leaves a very hard to decipher trail for other editors who may wish to read the conversation at a future date. To this end, this template allows you to keep a conversation on one talk page, but still inform the other party that you have responded on your own talk page.

An existing template, {{Talkback}} from which this template derives, has many additional features. This template is intended as a very simple version with minimal code and to present a smaller sized ("tiny") notice on a user's talk page just to inform them that a message they left has been responded to on your own talk page.
