Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Template:Mergeto

From FlightGear wiki

Merge-arrow.gif
It has been suggested that this template or section be merged into [[{{{1}}}]].
The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.

Goal

This template can be placed at the top of an article or section that is considered to be merged into another article or section.

Pages marked with this template will automatically be added to the category Articles to be merged. Categorisation can be suppressed with the nocat parameter.

Merging can be done if a section is slightly out of context in one article but is similar enough that copying it into another article or merging it with a section in the other article would aid their maintenance.

Usage

The template is placed at the top of the article or section to be merged from.

{{mergeto|other article#section|discussion page |date=July 2019 |nocat=}}
other article
Mandatory name of the article to be merged into.
section
Optionally a section suitable to merge with if there already is such a section.
discussion page
Optional name of a discussion page with a section about the merge.
date
Optional date the merge was proposed in m YYYY format, for example July 2019.
nocat
Optionally suppresses automatic categorisation if true. Useful in examples.

If there is a need for a motivation or a discussion about the merge, do so on the discussion page of the page to be merged from, preferably as a new section named something like Merge to <other article> and link to the talk page and preferably also to that section with the second parameter.
