Hi, could someone please tell me how to make an archive for old discussion etc. on my talk page? It's just that I think it's getting so full that some of my old stuff has gone now. Thanks! --Margiechocoholic Medieval Broomstick Owl me! 13:19, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

  1. Create a new article with the title User talk:your user name here/Archive (or Archive 1, Archive 2, etc.)
  2. Cut whatever text you want to archive from your talk page, paste it in the new article and save.
  3. Add a link to the Archive at the top of your talk page.
I think that's all there is to it. - Nick O'Demus 01:20, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
It is preferable to save the edit history, so I would suggest to do the following instead:
  1. Move your current talk page to User talk:your user name here/Archive (or Archive 1, Archive 2, etc.)
  2. Remove the redirect from User talk:your user name here, that should appear once you've made the move.
  3. Add a link to the Archive at the top of your talk page.
