Templates are special pages which reduce the need for writing the same thing multiple times. For general information on creating and using templates, see Meta-Wiki's page on templates. This page will list and explain the templates available on this wiki.

One important feature of templates is their ability to take arguments. A template with no arguments is called as

{{template name}}

Note that the "Template:" part of the name is left out. To send arguments, one writes

{{template name|argument1=value1|argument2=Some other value}}
