InconsistencyEdit

The template doesn't seem to work the way it is said it does at WP:MERGE and the template documentation, with regard to how the "result=" parameter should be formatted. Was it your edit, QEDK? I don't care which way but the inconsistency needs to be resolved. Regards! Usedtobecool ☎️ 05:40, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

@Usedtobecool: I only changed the bold/caps formatting, it's probably John Cline who made the changes (?) --qedk (t c) 17:13, 13 September 2020 (UTC)

Lacking functionality for no consensusEdit

I'd like to add this to a page for a discussion where there was weak consensus against a merge, but it won't let me, since it can only handle "merge" or "not merge". This would be especially bad for a situation in which the result was no consensus. Can we please get this working a little better? The documentation is also lacking. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 02:55, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

@Sdkb: Just looking at the template, it appears that you can use |result= to display any message after "the result of the discussion was". For example to display no consensus you could use {{Old merge full|result='''no consensus'''}}. It appears that a month ago I altered the functionality slightly and did not correctly update the doc.
