Examples

Imagine we see a comment like the following:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

Now let's say we want to note that there's a bug in the bug tracker for this. We'll add the following code: {{tracked|300}} (where 300 is the number of the bug).

Sample output:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

We can leave it at that. If we'd like to note the fact that the bug's been fixed, we can note its status, via {{tracked|300|fixed}}. In addition to fixed, we support wontfix, later and invalid resolution. (Style note: We're not using big scary red colors for the resolution to avoid scaring or annoying the reporter.) Example with the fixed keyword:

Sample output:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

Last but not least, we can mark a bug as critical. We deliberately aren't using this keyword for bugs which are resolved one way or another -- the point of adding this to the template is to note to all readers of the page that the seriousness of a bug has been critical. This keyword should only be used if the bug has also been marked as critical in Bugzilla. Example usage: {{Tracked|300|critical}}

Sample output:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

Of course, feel free to avoid using this template if tracking a comment is not useful.

You appear to be running the new IE toolbar. This is expected behavior. However, if you upgrade, it will show the angry dancing Ballmer instead. --GNUnicorn 01:38, 14 December 2011 (PST)
