'''Templates''' are special pages which reduce the need for writing the same thing multiple times. For general information on creating and using templates, see [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Template Meta-Wiki's page on templates]. This page will list and explain the templates available on this wiki. Full information on a given template can be found on its talk page.

One important feature of templates is their ability to take arguments. A template with no arguments is called as
 
<nowiki>{{</nowiki>''template name''<nowiki>}}</nowiki>
 
Note that the "Template:" part of the name is left out. To send arguments, one writes
 
<nowiki>{{</nowiki>''template name''|''argument1''=''value1''|''argument2''=''Some other value''<nowiki>}}</nowiki>
