This WikiProject was formed by Wikipedians to better manage this encyclopedia's myriad templates. This page contains their many useful suggestions, and it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the project's talk page and see the to-do list.


The main goal of this WikiProject is:

To help manage the template namespace of Wikipedia.


It consists of:

  1. Conducting efforts to better organize, document and display all templates in the template namespace, including: navigation templates, infobox templates, inline templates linking country articles, stub types, image copyright tags and user language templates (Babel).
  2. Solving specific templates issues, such as standardisation and locations.
  3. Improving the general documentation on how to create and use templates, in addition to improving the documentation pages of the individual templates.
  4. Clean-up of the unused, unneeded and/or redundant templates, using the templates for discussion (TfD) process and guidelines.
  5. Providing help and guidance in creating, updating, correcting and testing templates.
  6. Improving template accessibility
