  • This template has been carefully designed based on guidelines by the user warnings project.
  • Please discuss the general visual appearance of these templates (for example, the image in the top-left corner) on the user warning talk page.
  • Please refer to the index of message templates before using any template on user talk pages to warn a user. Applying the best template available for your purpose may help reduce confusion from the message you are sending.

  • This template uses a parser function. To give greater detail to your message, you may add the article and some additional text to the end of the template.

Template documentationview · edit · history · purge ]
This documentation is transcluded from Template:Templatesnotice/doc.

This template ({{Templatesnotice}}) should be put on all templates that are covered by WP:UW and listed on WP:UTM.


This template can display up to three shortcuts templates: like {{Uw-t1}}. To indicate the three redirects, just write the name of the redirect template after the appropriate variable (use just the basic name; for example, "uw-v1" instead of "Template:Uw-v1" or "{{Uw-v1}}").

{{templatesnotice|s1=shortcut template 1|s2 = shortcut template 2| s3 = shortcut template 3}}

Leave out the parameters that you don't need.

This feature calls {{Template shortcut}}.

Template series[edit]

For easy navigation, it is possible to use {{User warning set}}. There are three variables you can use, one of which is required. Another is recommended, and another is only needed if escalation is required. The format for this is:

{{templatesnotice|series=series |max=max |escalate=escalate}}
  • series is the name of the template series. This is the prefix of the template. Examples of series names are "uw-vandalism", "uw-test", "uw-spam", "uw-agf".
  • max is the number of templates in the series. For the "uw-own" series, which contains the templates {{Uw-own1}}, {{Uw-own2}}, and {{Uw-own3}}, B would be 3. If all four levels are used, B would be 4. Any values other than "3" or "4" would yield levels 1, 2, 3, 4, and 4im being displayed. Use "4im" for the B value if this is the case.
  • escalate indicates whether the template series escalated to {{Uw-vandalism4}}. The test series contains the templates {{Uw-test1}}, {{Uw-test2}}, and {{Uw-test3}}, so its B value would be 3. If such edits continue, it would be necessary to use {{Uw-vandalism4}} as a level 4 warning, so for the uw-test series, C is set to "yes". Setting it to "true", "false", "no", "oh yeah", or "1" would result in the escalation option not being used.

This feature calls {{User warning set}}, and uses complex ParserFunctions to do so.

Shortcuts and series[edit]

For shortcuts and series, just set the parameters together, in this order:

{{templatesnotice|series = name|max = number|s1 = shortcut|s2 = shortcut|s3 = shortcut|s4 = shortcut|escalate = yes}}

Twinkle use notification[edit]

This template automatically adds {{Twinkle standard installation}} to templates that transclude it. If an individual template is not used by Twinkle, it can be disabled by |notwinkle=yes or similar.


If the template doesn't end in "Thank You", use nothankyou=yes.
