Page management

Mbox default.png
Example: Page management template
This is an example for the look of a page management template.

Page management templates are used if you notice that something is out of order with a certain page or section and want to bring it to the attention of other editors or administrators. They display a box describing the issue and add the page to the appropriate maintenance category (usually named like the Template itself, e.g. Category:Stub for the Stub template).

These templates should generally be placed at the very top of a page unless you only want to mark a section for "treatment"; then they should be at the top of that section. The exceptions to this rule are:

  • the "stub" templates, which should be at the bottom of a page.
  • {{section}}, which should be inserted in the place of the missing section.
  • {{verify}}, which should be placed directly behind the fact needing verification.

Most of these templates can be used with an unnamed parameter for describing the issue in more detail.

Navboxes

Navboxes are used to ease navigation between a certain group of articles. They should be inserted in all articles of that group at the very bottom of an article, just above the categories. Exception to this rule are sidebars, these should inserted close to the top of an article.

New navboxes can be constructed with {{Navbox}}. For a list of existing navboxes, please see Category:Navbox templates.

Source templates

Source templates are added to the top of an article, just below the infobox. The purpose is to make the reader aware of the presented information's source whether it be cut content, to inform of a source's canonicity or that it is a spoiler in cases of upcoming games, content, or updates. These templates can also be used to surround sections of a larger article by utilizing begin and end parameters, for example with behind the scenes sections, placing {{behind the scenes}} and {{behind the scenes|end}} around the section.
