Back to template

Is this necessary? If the discussion gets too far indented, just use one colon when you respond and leave it at that. No need to proclaim "and oh yeah, here's an obvious piece of information", especially with such a gigantic template name. -- Armond {{Bacon}} 01:26, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

It's pretty helpful if there's multiple threads instead of just one long thread of discussion -- where in the former case you wouldn't be sure, until reading everything, if what you're looking at is a different thread or a continuation of an older thread. Surgo 02:05, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
That's what headers (and the talk pages of other users, in some cases) are for. I've yet to find a wiki in which discussions splinter off in five or six different directions at once, which is where this would be useful. -- Armond {{Bacon}} 02:15, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
For another reason as to why we use it, I refer you to The Tale of Five Monkeys. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Surgo (talkcontribs)
At the very least, could we move it to Template:ri (short for "reset indent")? Typing out the current name seems... unnecessary. -- Armond {{Bacon}} 22:52, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
That is now an alias you can use. Surgo 23:29, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
