Date parameter for template?

(N.B. Marked as active since 13:21, July 21, 2013 (UTC)}.

I've been wondering about all these {(Talk)} templates I see on discussion pages. How long has the discussion been active? Can it really still be considered "active" if it's been flagged as such for months or years, as I suspect a few of them have?

This is similar to editors putting in relative date references such as "recent", which are meaningless without checking the history to learn when they were inserted. Perhaps not as bad as that, but still...

I think it might be useful to add to the template, an optional parameter giving the date the template was added. This could be filled by using five tildes. — RobertATfm (talk) 13:21, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

Purpose

I've seen this category on a couple of pages and it seems pointless. The definition of an "active" talkpage is subjective and everyone would have a different idea as to what constitutes a page being active, so I think this category should be removed from the template and the category deleted. --Sajuuk 11:37, December 28, 2015 (UTC)
