How do I create templates, or is that even possible?! Jimmy the Hellhound 13:45, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Creating templates certainly is possible - in fact us non-admins can still do pretty much anything except for deleting stuff and banning users. Probably the easiest way to create a template is to follow these instructions:
  1. Find a template you like on an article.
  2. Click on the "edit" button at the top of the article. Find the title of the template. Then go to the template page, eg. Template:Fourhorsemen.
  3. Click on the "edit" button for this template page, and copy the code into a new subpage of your userpage, eg. User:Saintjimmy777/Templatetitle. Edit this page.
From here you can edit the background colour, the border colour, the size, the text and the image in the template. When you want to put the template on a page, move it to Template:Templatetitle and place {{templatetitle}} on the page. See Help:HowTo for more info on how to do this. If this doesn't help you, see Wikipedia's help pages. Be warned though, Wikipedia's help pages are enormous, and are prone to causing brain malfunctions.

Also, don't create templates. No really, don't. Because the more you spread something the thinner it gets, and by the time your template is on 100 pages it is officially worthless and ready to be deleted again. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 15:23, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, good point. I forgot that. Icons-flag-au Sir Cs1987 UOTM. t. c 02:45, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
That's why we made sure you got that Memento-style tattoo, dummy. Check your belly. It's just to the left of your grocery list. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:24, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Uh, well. Okay. But the temptation to create one is there now. Thanks. Jimmy the Hellhound 11:36, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
