Template:Moved discussion/doc

Purpose

This tag is related to {{Resolved}}, but it meant to be placed at the top of sections on talk pages and other discussions, to indicate when a discussion has been moved elsewhere. It serves as a reminder for editors not to add any more to the discussion, except at its new location, unless strictly necessary.

Usage

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

{{Moved discussion|Talk:Archive|2=~~~~}}
Moved to Talk:Archive JohnDoe ~~

(The 2= is necessary if there are any "=" characters in the message, for example if your raw signature contains "=". Otherwise you can drop it.)

To make an additional comment explaining why the discussion was moved, and/or to sign so that others know who marked the thread as resolved:

{{Moved discussion|Talk:Article|Articles have been updated with 2007 data, and are now in sync. --~~~~}}
Moved to Talk:ArticleArticles have been updated with 2007 data, and are now in sync. --JohnDoe 00:26, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

Example

==Chelonia==
{{Moved discussion|Talk:Turtle|Subsection is [[Talk:Turtle#Chelonia]] ~~~~}}
Chelonia currently redirects to Turtle, but ''Chelonia'' is the monotypic genus containing the [[Green Sea Turtle]].
Shouldn't it be Chelonian-->Turtle, and Chelonia-->Green Sea Turtle? [[User:OneUser123|OneUser123]] 2 July 2005 05:08 (UTC)
