UsageEdit

By default, just using the following is enough:

{{Closing project proposal

|target=INTERWIKI LINK FOR THE PROJECT without a colon at the end}}
Give your opening statement for the closing proposal here. ~~~~

But you can also use the following parameters:

  • type = 1 (default) or 2
  • proposal = closure (default) or deletion
  • content = Another wiki where the content should go to; defaults to Incubator
  • status = [Parameter only for LangCom members!]
    • discussion (default; open for discussion by the community)
    • langcom (under review by the Language committee)
      • In this case, the parameter langcom-proposal is used to give the outcome proposed by the Language committee member
    • board (passing Board decision)
    • accepted (accepted; wiki will be closed or deleted)
    • rejected (rejected; wiki will be kept open)
    • rejectedd (rejected; wiki will not be deleted) (use for rejected deletion requests)
  • notice = Link to a visible page on the wiki in question
  • chapters = Which chapters, wiki projects, and other community groups are informed, possibly with a link to a mail or other notice
