Star Citizen:Templates

Template usage on the Star Citizen Wiki

Templates are used to duplicate the same content across more than one page, reducing maintenance and work needed on creating and updating pages. Changing a template in one place will immediately apply the changes to all the pages that use it.

This page lists templates of this wiki. Due to the amount of traffic and the game being controversial, template creation requires additional permission on top of registered and verified users. For more information on templates, check out Wikipedia's template page or Wikimedia's template page. If you are interested in:

Creating a template
Create a prototype on your user page or/and propose your idea in the discussion page.
Requesting a template
Propose your request in the discussion page.
Improving a template
Propose your suggestions in the relevant template talk page or this discussion page.

Alternatively, you can request template permission by asking in the discussion page or messaging us on Discord.

A list of all Star Citizen Wiki templates is available at All pages (Template namespace). For a list of templates, see this page. Unused templates can be found at Special:Unusedtemplates.

To insert a template into a page, type {{TemplateName}} (this is known as a tag) somewhere on the page, whether it be at the top or at the bottom or in a certain section. Every page with that tag in it will display the template text. TemplateName is the name after the colon symbol, e.g. the TemplateName for Template:In use is In use, so typing {{In use}} will add that tag to a page.

Below are a summary of most templates on the wiki. Please refer to the relevant documentation page for more details. Note that some templates are listed by their shorthand, and depreciated and fallback templates are not included in the list below.
