Most pages made haven't had revision numbers in mind, and it isn't mentioned on the page names either. So having a page for each version of a game would clutter up the games list after a while. So I'm removing the  Version thing off the few templates that used it.--[[User:Hiro1112|Hiro1112]] 23:39, 12 January 2007 (EST)

  • {{FULLPAGENAME}} should be used instead of {{{game}}}. That way, it will consistently prefix the name of the page to the subpage's name.
  • Specify image= using just the "FinalFantasyVI.png" part rather than the full "[[Image:FinalFantasyVI.png|center]]".
