The purpose of the "disregard" tag is to give a visual hint to readers of talk page discussions to ignore an issue or topic that is no longer relevant or applicable. It is hoped that the existence of this tag will make it easier for the reader to pass over these topics or to understand that a response is no longer required or requested.

The "disregard" tag is designed to be used specifically by the author whose topic is no longer relevant and whose topic has not been responded to. Tagging is not final and does not close a discussion. If the topic becomes relevant, requires a response, or the topic again becomes active, please remove the tag. The tag should be used as an alternative to leaving the topic open or to removing the topic entirely; the topic can then be archived as having been made, but a response was eventually not required by the author.


Place the following under the topic heading on a talk page:

Disregard: Example User 01:16, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Note: The 1= is only necessary if there are "=" characters in the message or in the user's raw signature. Also, diffs include the "=" character and therefore require the 1=.

To make an additional comment explaining why the issue should be disregarded and/or to sign so that others know who marked the topic to be disregarded:

{{Disregard|1=questionable edits were reverted according to consensus. – ~~~~}}
Disregard: questionable edits were reverted according to consensus. – Example User 01:16, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
