Template documentation (View · Edit · History · Purge)


This template is used to trigger notifications for users when replying to a thread on a talk page or other discussion noticeboard. Normally, this can be accomplished simply by adding a link to the user's userpage (e.g. [[User:Example|Example]]. This template simplifies the process and adds an "@" symbol at the beginning to make it a little more aesthetically pleasing.


{{reply to|Username}} Message text. ~~~~

The edit that adds this template must meet the following requirement for notifications to work:

  • The edit must add new lines of text, not just edit existing lines.
  • The edit must be signed by adding ~~~~ to the end of the message.
    • If you have specified a custom signature, it must contain a plain wiki link ([[ ]]) to your user page, user talk page, or contributions page; it cannot be embedded in a template.
  • The edit must either be entirely within an existing sections (it cannot have new section headers in the middle) or start a new section (starts with a new section header).
    • Only sections of level 2 and above count.
  • If the number of detected to-be-pinged users exceeds 50, no notifications will be delivered.

You can also ping multiple users, up to a maximum of 50.

{{reply to|Username1|Username2}} Message text. ~~~~
