There is a global pandemic on and I don't have the emotional reserves for the sort of comments I'm getting. How do I temporarily lock my talk page so that if someone calls me names or badgers me on this site, at least it's not on a page that's going to send me an email each time? I do not want someone else to do it for me. I do not want to just shut off email alerts.
I realize everyone's tense these days, but people are using me for a punching bag and I did not sign up for that. Darkfrog24 (talk) 15:28, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
Not replying to people would do. Gryllida (talk) 15:42, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
That would only encourage people to dump themselves on my talk page, and I don't like that. Darkfrog24 (talk) 15:53, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
That IP did the same thing. And that is what I reverted, for which you asserted it was an overkill. •–• 15:54, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
@SleaY: the template works using some custom code in MediaWiki:Common.js and MediaWiki:Common.css (search for "tabber") but I would recommend against just copying that over, because it would be better to use templatestyles for the formatting. --DannyS712 (talk) 00:50, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
