Usage[संपादित करें]

This template is intended to be placed on user or WikiProject talk pages to notify the creator of a category or the members of a WikiProject, respectively, that the category has been nominated for discussion at Categories for discussion.

Use of this template is not mandatory, and its existence does not mean that it will or should be used in all cases. In particular, WikiProjects generally do not need to be notified of routine, uncomplicated, or uncontroversial discussions for one or a few categories. Also, please check to see whether the category was created as a result of a "rename" result at a previous CFD. If so, there may be no need to notify the editor listed as the creator, as that usually is the admin/editor who implemented that earlier CFD decision.

Please note: This template must be substituted (always using the prefix "subst:").

Syntax[संपादित करें]

To notify the creator of a category that the category has been listed at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion, add {{subst:cfd-notify|NAME|DATE}} to their user talk page, replacing

  • NAME with the category name, minus the "Category:" prefix, and
  • DATE (optional, defaults to today) with the date of the nomination, in the form:
Year (space) Month (space) Day [e.g. 2007 January 8].

A section heading will be created automatically on the user talk page.

Remember to sign and date your post by adding ~~~~ following the template code.

If the name of the section heading under which the CFD discussion appears is not the same as the full name of the category (with the Category: prefix), then provide the name of the section heading as a third parameter.

  • {{subst:cfd-notify|CATEGORY NAME}}
  • {{subst:cfd-notify|CATEGORY NAME|YEAR MONTH DAY}}

Optional parameters[संपादित करें]

The template supports two optional parameters:

To notify the members of a WikiProject, rather than a category's creator; this parameter replaces the text "which you created" with "which is under the purview of this WikiProject".
Any text specified in place of value, such as "deletion", "merging" or "renaming", replaces "discussion" with the user-specified text; this parameter can, in the cases of nominations to merge or rename, be used to identify the title of the proposed target category—e.g. action=merging to [[:Category:Contents]] replaces "nominated for discussion" with "nominated for merging to Category:Contents".
