Overview[edit]

This template presents a concise summary at the discussion threads that have reached a consensus, making it easier to browse a talk page and determine what decisions have been reached. Some guidelines for usage:

  • Do not add this template to the thread until consensus has been reached. If you are unsure if a consensus has been reached then ask first ("I think we have a consensus to do X. Would it be OK if I tagged this discussion accordingly?")
  • Be sure to summarize the discussion in 1-4 sentences using the "summary" parameter. The summary should include enough detail that someone reading it will have a general understanding of the issues raised and the consensus that was reached.
  • If there is a follow-up action as a result of the consensus, use the "action" parameter ("action=Policy page updated to reflect the new understanding").

Usage[edit]

Note that the "action" parameter is optional, but should always be specified if there was a change made as a result of the consensus decision.

{{consensus
| summary=A proposal was made to rename the "Contact" section due to confusion among readers and
  editors about the usage of this section (it was often mis-used for adding Tourist Information Offices and other
  "contacts" in the destination).  After some discussion it was agreed to rename this heading to
  "Connect" to reflect its purpose of providing information about options for internet, phone,
  mail and other services.
| action=[[User:Inasbot]] was used to rename all section headings.
