The following templates are provided to make creating new pages easier. To use a template, click on the appropriate template link, choose View source from the top menu of the page, and copy the contents of the source code into the new page you are attempting to create (or replace the placeholder statement).

Templates, while recommended, may be modified to best suit the particular article you are creating, therefore headers and other fields which do not apply can be deleted, and other more appropriate content added. If you have a suggestion for modifying a particular template, please leave a comment on that template's discussion page.

If you are adding a page to the wiki and no appropriate template exists, simply follow the general style of the existing templates as best suits the page you are adding.
