  2. User talk edit notices are now implemented by creating a subpage on the user talk page named "/Editnotice". This allows non-admin users to edit their own notices. Display of the user talk edit notice is controlled by MediaWiki:Editnotice-3.

Expiry date[edit]

The expiry parameter can be used to specify when an editnotice will cease to be visible on a page. This can be useful when an editnotice is created for reasons of a temporal nature. Any valid time format may be used, for example:

  • January 2012
  • 4 April 2009
  • 11:09 April 5 2013

To specify that an editnotice never expire, |expiry=indefinite may be used.
