This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

{{archive-top}} and {{archive-bottom}} are used on talk pages to archive old discussions. Autopatrolled users can enable aWa in their preferences, which applies the templates automatically.

Usage[edit]

For discussions archived from standard venues, place the following on the talk page:

== Header text ==
{{archive-top|venue|result}}
{{fake==|old header}}
discussion content
{{archive-bottom}}

The first positional parameter to {{archive-top}} denotes the venue from which the discussion was archived: rfv, rfd, rfdo, rfm, rfc, rft or feedback.

The second parameter is optional and denotes the result of the verification process or deletion debate: passed, failed or archived. The default value is archived.

Discussions from arbitrary pages can be archived as such:

== Header text ==
{{archive-top|page name}}
{{fake==|old header}}
discussion content
{{archive-bottom}}

The second parameter should not be passed.

Incorrect usages of {{archive-top}} place the page in Category:Archive boxes needing attention.
