Purpose[edit]

Many users state that when they get a message, they will respond on your talk page instead of on their own. This makes reading back a conversation quite cumbersome; having to switch talk pages back and forth in order to make sense of the conversation. To this end, you can use this template to notify a user that you have responded to his/her message on your own talk page.

Usage[edit]

A template for notifying users that they have messages waiting on other pages

Template parameters
Parameter Description Type Default Auto value Status
User name 1 The username of the recipient. string empty empty required
Section 2 The linked page or page section string empty empty optional
Time stamp ts To apply the current time, value should be ' ~~~~~ ' (five tildes). string empty empty optional
{{Talkback|your username}}
{{Talkback|your username|section}}

To have the links point to a non-user talk page, you must include the full talk page link.

{{Talkback|Talk:page name|section}}
{{Talkback|Wikisource talk:page name|section}}

To include a timestamp, add ts=~~~~~ (five tildes).

{{Talkback|Talk:page name|section|ts=~~~~~}}
{{Talkback|your username|section|ts=~~~~~}}

Place the code on the talk page of the user you have answered to. The recipient may remove this template from his/her talk page at any time. A link to edit the first section of the talk page is shown within the template. The section parameter is optional; when you enter the name of the section on your talk page, it will directly link to that section.

Notes[edit]

  • If you are going to use this template, please consider putting the {{Usertalkback}} notice on your own talk page:


  • If I left you a message: please answer on your talk page, then place {{Talkback}} on my talk.
  • If you leave me a message: I will answer on my talk page, then place {{Talkback}} on your talk.
  • Please click here to leave me a new message.

You can do so by copying the following code at the very top of your talk page:

{{Usertalkback}}
  • Other versions are possible, such as an asymmetrical one not requiring your interlocutors to use Talkback, provided that you watch their talk page for answers:


You can do so by copying the following code at the very top of your talk page:

{{Usertalkback|you=watched}}
  • Another way, now less standard, was to use such notice:
Comment If you leave me a message, I will respond here and will let you know on your talk page using the {{Talkback}} template.

You can do so by copying the following code:

{{Notice|'''If you leave me a message, I will respond ''here'' and will let you
know on your talk page using the {{tl|Talkback}} template.'''}}en:Template:Talkback
