Date parameter for template?

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)
