Example discussion title

Hi, could someone help me with article Example? --⁠Example (talk) 08:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Yes. Of course. Note that this message is indented to the right using colon : at the beginning of the response. --⁠Example (talk) 10:10, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Increase the number of colon characters used when replying to a message. This messages uses two colons. --⁠Example (talk) 10:20, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Three colons because it's replying to the above message. --⁠Example (talk) 10:30, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
If you want to reply to the message with 2 colons and someone already is using 3 colons, use 3 colons to reply to the message. --Example 22:09, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
Four colons, and so on. --⁠Example (talk) 10:40, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
@Example: this is an example of using Template:reply to ping a user. --⁠Example (talk) 12:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Yes, thank you for pinging me. --⁠Example (talk) 12:30, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

The thread got too deep. Template:outdent is used to keep discussions readable. --⁠Example (talk) 13:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

I request an edit to be made. --⁠Example (talk) 16:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
  Request withdrawn I realized there is a better alternative. This is an example of using Template:withdrawn to indicate some status using recognizable icons. There are different templates used in various types of discussions. --⁠Example (talk) 16:30, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
As Example has said elsewhere this is an example of Template:tq being used to quote other users. It can also be used to quote policies, articles, or any other pages. --⁠Example (talk) 17:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
(edit conflict) This is an example of Template:Edit conflict being used to signal to other users that this response was being typed at the same time as the one above it and it resulted in an edit conflict. Note that the time of this message is just one minute after the previous. --⁠Example (talk) 17:01, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Certainly, we could help. Using asterisks * instead of : is another approach used to format discussion threads. --⁠Example (talk) 10:15, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
    • Note, that the message just above this one is timed only five minutes after the first response at 10:10 to the call for help. --⁠Example (talk) 20:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
      • This indicates that all messages in-between them were added after the message about asterisks. Sometimes, discussions do not follow a single train of thought, and threads about different aspects of the subject branch off. --⁠Example (talk) 20:30, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Sometimes, two styles of indentation are intermixed. But it is usually best to keep a single style for readability. --⁠Example (talk) 21:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
          • See to the left of these words how using asterisks after colons causes several bullet (•) characters to appear. --⁠Example (talk) 21:30, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
It is important to use ~~~~ to sign messages on talk pages, so that other users can easily understand who wrote it. --⁠Example (talk) 08:00, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
Users sometimes forget to sign their messages. Template:unsigned might be used by another user or a bot after such messages. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Example (talkcontribs) 08:10, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
If you notice that your signature is missing after saving a page, just add it in another edit. Such edits may be marked as minor. Use edit summary "sign", "forgot to sign", or equivalent to make it clear that this diff does not constitute a new discussion message. --⁠Example (talk) 08:20, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
  Moved from User talk:Example § Other discussion: --⁠Example (talk) 14:00, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

This is an example of using Template:moved from, when a user deemed this page as being a better place for a discussion that was previously held at section "Other discussion" of page User talk:Example. --⁠Example (talk) 14:00, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

To indicate that another page was considered as more suitable, Template:moved to is used. --⁠Example (talk) 15:00, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
  Moved to Wikipedia talk:Sandbox: --⁠Example (talk) 16:00, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
Note, that both notices were signed. --⁠Example (talk) 17:00, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
  Moved from User talk:Example § Other discussion: An explicit explanation of reasons for the move is always appreciated. --⁠Example (talk) 18:00, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
