BattleTechWiki:Template messages/Personal Attacks

Essay.png BattleTechWiki Essay
This essay contains the advice or opinions of one or more BattleTechWiki Editors regarding interacting on the wiki. Essays may represent widespread norms or minority viewpoints. Consider these views with discretion. Consider discussing potential changes on the talk page first.


These templates are placed on talk pages to warn a user from personal attacks against other Editors. You are responsible for ensuring that the template's text is appropriate to the violation: if the template's tone isn't appropriate, don't use the template. There is not a formal system that you have to use: they are a shortcut to typing, nothing more. If you cannot find a template that says what you want to say then go ahead and say it normally.

Remember:

  • always substitute messages by adding subst: before the name of the template, so that the message does not change from what the user originally saw and perhaps responded to,
  • always sign (with --~~~~) the template, and
  • try to give the level of the template you have used in your edit summary, so that other users know what templates have been used (ex: "Level 2 warning").
