Usage

This template takes advantage of the new user mention notification to ping the user(s) you are replying to in a discussion. It works on any talk page or Wikipedia namespace page.

Note that it isn't necessary to use this template to ping (indicate) the user if you are already linking to their username from your post.

Single recipient

To use it, just add something like the following to an existing discussion:

{{reply to|User1}} Message text. ~~~~

For example, ":{{reply to|Jimbo Wales}} Message text." displays as:

@Jimbo Wales: Message text.

The comment must be signed and belong to a section in order for the notification to work.

Multiple recipients

You can reply to up to 5 people at once:

{{reply to|User1|UserII|UserC}} Message text. ~~~~
