This looks like a pretty useless template. Anyone care to explain what it's for? LtPowers (talk) 14:02, 30 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


This template was nominated for deletion on 7 November 2013 but was kept. The deletion debate is Wikivoyage:Votes_for_deletion/November_2013#Template:Ping. Please consider that decision before you re-nominate it. --Saqib (talk) 22:14, 20 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


FYI, I have redirected {{Replyto}}, {{Reply to}}, {{Mention}}, and {{Yo}} here. These are rarely used aliases on Wikipedia, and it's convenient to have them for newcomers. Nick1372 (talk) 05:43, 1 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ignore this message, this is just a test to see if I can ping 6 people. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 05:36, 9 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Works. Will try it with 7. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 05:36, 9 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Works with 7, I'll try and increase the capability to 10. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 05:38, 9 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Seeing if 9 works SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 05:42, 9 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry for bothering you with my test here. I've now extended the capabilities of ping from 5 to 15 people. Let me know if something doesn't work properly though. Thanks for your time though. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 05:56, 9 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@SHB2000: You can't ping IP users as only logged-in users can receive notifications. Leaving a message on the talk page of an IP user does generate a message at the top of the screen though. 16:39, 12 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I know that, which is why i put many unused IP's as possible SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 21:35, 12 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:Ping should now be able to take in 15 names instead of 5.[edit]

Swept in from the pub

I've just increased the capabilities of Template:Ping from 5 people to 15 people. This means that to ping more than 5 names, you'll no longer have to use two or three separate templates and you can now use one. Thanks!, SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 05:53, 9 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
