This is the {{helpme}} message box.

If you need help, you can place this template on a talk page, and write your question below it. Then our helpers will be notified.

Usage[edit]

Here is what you would put on the talk page:

== How does X work? ==
{{helpme}}
Your question about X.
~~~~
== Was ist X ? ==
{{helpme|de}}
Deine Frage über X.
~~~~

Or on a discussionpage where (part of) the discussion needs attention from a native-speaker, use:

== Discussion X ==
[...]
: {{helpme|type=discussion}}
: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. ~~~~
== Discussion X ==
{{helpme|de|discussion}}
Eine Frage über X. ~~~~

The four tildes "~~~~" will automatically add your signature, which is your username and a timestamp.

In either case, you can also add the template for someone else if you find an unanswered matter in a language you don't speak.

Technical details[edit]

When used, this template categorizes the talk page into Category:User needing help or one of it's subcategories by language.

Localisation[edit]

To add your language to the list of languages supported by this template, please edit the template and add a row to the "{{LangSwitch|}}" construct. It takes the form "|xx=Your translation" (xx being the code of your language
