Description

The {{afd-mergeto}} and {{afd-mergefrom}} templates are intended for use by a sysop who closes an AfD debate with a consensus to merge the nominee into another article (or by a different user acting on such a decision).

Instructions

Upon removing the {{afd}} notice (if still present), add the {{afd-mergeto}} tag to the top of the nominated article (not its talk page). Use the following format:

{{afd-mergeto|destination article|debate name|debate closure date}}

For example, assume that a debate was closed on 17 October 2021. If the consensus is to merge the nominated article into an article called Topic X, and the debate is located at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Topic Y (second nomination), the tag should be configured as follows:

{{afd-mergeto|Topic X|Topic Y (second nomination)|17 October 2021}}


This will generate the following notice:


Also add the {{afd-mergefrom}} tag to the top of the destination article's talk page (not the article itself). Use the following format:

{{afd-mergefrom|nominated article|debate name|debate closure date}}

For example, assume that a debate was closed on 17 October 2021. If the consensus is to merge an article called Topic Y into the article associated with the talk page, and the debate is located at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Topic Y (second nomination), the tag should be configured as follows:

{{afd-mergefrom|Topic Y|Topic Y (second nomination)|17 October 2021}}


This will generate the following notice:
