Template Guid: This is a guide to our templates on this wiki. How to use them, what code to use, how they look, and maybe most importantly what they are for. A lot of the templates while valuable do little good if we the editors do not know they exist or what they are for. Some are confusing and the template it self does not explain what it is for. It is my hope that this Guide will will help alleviate this issue.

First all of our template can be or rather should be found here Category:Templates. A template can be placed in an article by using the code {{ Template here}} it can be used with with Template:template name or just the template name. Just the template name is prefered as it saves on space and data. Notice Templates should always be placed either at the top of the page or the top of the section were revelint.
