Template:Ping project

Documentation icon Template documentation[view · edit · history · purge ]

To be used on a talk page, to make an echo notification to all participants indicated in parameter 1. The list of participants should be given in a page called Wikidata:WikiProject ' + <parameter 1> + '/Participants'. The template {{Participants}} placed in the main page of your project can help you create such a page for your project. When the page is done, it shows the list of participants and will explain users on how to ping the project.


Example: for a participants page called 'Wikidata:WikiProject MyProject/Participants'

{{Ping project|MyProject}} This is my interesting communication ~~~~

Limitations from mw:Manual:Echo#Technical details

  • Template must be added in a new message
  • Message must be signed
  • No notifications if more than 50 people are pinged (listed on the project page)

How it works

When you use this template, for example with the WikiProject "Periodicals", you are technically adding in the page the users inside the subpage Wikidata:WikiProject Periodicals/Participants. The users are not really displayed but this trick is enough to trigger the Echo extension.
