Purpose

The purpose of the "stuck" tag is to give a visual hint to readers of talk page items, making it easier to ignore issues that need to be moved to another forum, after the involved parties have been advised. It is hoped that the existence of such a tag will make it easier to find active non-stuck items on a page still needing attention.

The "stuck" tag is not final and does not close a conversation. If the parties decide to communicate more reasonably with each other so we can continue helping here, please remove the tag. Thus, the tag also helps clarify situations that might otherwise be ignored because some users thought the issue required escalation, when new activity may show that the parties have decided to find a way to get along.

Usage

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

{{Stuck|~~~~}}
Stuck: JohnDoe 00:26, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

To make an additional comment explaining why the issue requires further dispute resolution, and/or to sign so that others know who marked the thread as stuck:

{{Stuck|1=The parties are still edit-warring, try Mediation. --~~~~}}
Stuck: The parties are still edit-warring, try Mediation. --JohnDoe 00:26, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

(The 1= is necessary if there are any "=" characters in the message, for example if your raw signature contains "=".)

Example

==Chelonia==
{{Stuck|~~~~}}
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)

The parties are still edit-warring, I've given them the links to the Mediation page.  
Let's move on. [[User:AnotherUser789|AnotherUser789]] 00:26, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
