Yescheck Resolved. {{{1}}}

Purpose

The purpose of the "resolved" tag is to give a visual hint to readers of talk page items, making it easier to ignore already-resolved issues. Also, it is hoped that the existence of such a tag will encourage the resolution of items on a talk page.

This template is to show an item on a talk page has been resolved and there is no dispute in anyone's mind about the outcome. That is, the initial comment or request has been filled, a reply to that effect has been added, and there are no disputed items or issues left to be resolved, and (if required) the article (or other page type) has been updated.

The "resolved" tag is not final and does not close a conversation. If new issues arise, or the item is not fully resolved, please remove the tag. Thus, the tag also helps clarify situations that might otherwise be ignored because some users thought the issue was resolved, when it was not.

This tag can be (and is) also used in admin processes to note that an action item reported to a notice board has been dealt with, and can further be of help on user talk pages to sort messages for archival from those to be retained for continued discussion or followup action.

Usage

Place the following under the topic heading on a talk page:
{{Resolved}}

To make an additional comment explaining why the issue is resolved:
{{Resolved|Then additional comment here}}
