Hello, Talkback. You have new messages at Example's talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.
Template documentation



Many users state that when they get a message, they will respond on your talk page instead of on their own. This makes reading back a conversation quite cumbersome; having to switch talk pages back and forth in order to make sense of the conversation. To this end, you can use this template to notify a user that you have responded to his/her message on your own talk page.


{{Talkback|your username}}
{{Talkback|your username|section}}

To have the links point to a non-user talk page, you must include the full talk page link.

{{Talkback|Talk:page name|section}}
{{Talkback|Wikipedia talk:page name|section}}

To include a timestamp, add ts=~~~~~ (five tildes).

{{Talkback|Talk:page name|section|ts=~~~~~}}
{{Talkback|your username|section|ts=~~~~~}}

For user talk pages, you can also use the {{mytalk}} template that will automatically add your username:


Place the code on the talk page of the user you have answered to. The recipient may remove this template from his/her talk page at any time. A link to edit the first section of the talk page is shown within the template. The section parameter is optional; when you enter the name of the section on your talk page, it will directly link to that section.




  • You can optionally substitute this template, though it is not recommended.
  • If you are going to use this template, please consider putting the {{Usertalkback}} notice on your own talk page:

You can do so by copying the following code at the very top of your talk page:

  • Other versions are possible, such as an asymmetrical one not requiring your interlocutors to use Talkback, provided that you watch their talk page for answers:

You can do so by copying the following code at the very top of your talk page:

  • Another way, now less standard, was to use a notice:

You can do so by copying the following code:

{{Notice|'''If you leave me a message, I will respond ''here'' and will let you
know on your talk page using the {{tl|Talkback}} template.'''}}
