This template is used for making property proposals and later archiving them (all Property Proposals should be done using this template).

Fields are defined in Module:Property proposal; translations and labels at Module:i18n/property proposal.

Notes on fields[edit]

  • If a number is added in "status" and a property with that number exists, status displays "done" and links to the property.
  • Other possible inputs:
    • not done - if property creation has been declined
    • withdrawn - if withdrawn by proposer
    • on hold - property is approved but cannot yet be created
    • ready - property has consensus for creation and is waiting for a property creator; page will be placed in Category:Properties ready for creation
Use one of available datatypes
external links
See {{External links}}
Required fields
Some parameters are mandatory. If they are not supplied, the template will display "MISSING" and enter the property in Category:Property documentation with missing information. To purposefully leave an empty field, type a dash ("-") as value.
