Templates are a great way to add formatting and to insert important information quickly.

Usage of templates

Please take the time to read the Editing Guidelines on templates.

On the technical side of things, templates are pages you insert into other pages (this is called transclusion). If you wish to get technical and understand the entire system behind templates, you may want to refer to Wikipedia's guide to templates.

A quick rundown of how templates are used:

{{Name of template|Parameter 1|Parameter 2|etc..}}

Name of template: This is the name of the template you use. Example: Character

Parameter: This is a piece of information you forward to the template. For instance, if you want to use Template:Character to display Icon Zhong Chun, your Parameter 1 would be 'Chun' and Parameter 2 would be 'long'. Parameters depend entirely on the specific template you're using, and it can have varying amounts (or even none at all!).

Template discussion can take place here. Please make sure you use headers for new discussion sections and colons to indent your text (one colon per indent - so use one more than the person above you did in a reply chain).

List of useful templates

This is a list of useful templates which are free for usage in articles you create or edit, as opposed to behind-the-scenes development ones. They will prove very useful in editing the wiki, so you should get to know and understand them! You can visit each Template page to find more detailed information about how and when they are used. This is meant to be a quick overview.

Icon Note: If you find a template which is used for a certain type of information (Example: {{AP}} for display of Action Point Action Point costs), please make sure to always use that template in your edits, so that information is presented in an easily readable, uniform way across the wiki!

Icon Note: There will be more templates added as more features are added to the wiki. Feel free to put this article on your watchlist to be informed of any new useful templates becoming available! -Ividyon (talk)
