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}}
Template:Clear
Makes sure that the following text will not overlap any floats.
Template:Stub
Put at the bottom of a page to mark it as lacking in content. The page will be put into Category:Stubs.
Template:Moreinfo wikipedia
Makes a link to wikipedia to the page specified by the page variable given to the template.
Template:Rommap
Should be at the top of every ROM map. Takes the argument game, which should be a wiki-link to the game which the page is a ROM map for.
Template:Rammap
