It has been brought to my attention that the documentation pages of N Wiki do not follow a standard format, nor a standard on if it is on the same page or not. So, upon the recommendation of Moydow, we are asking the community for input and a vote in the topic.

the vote is mainly to decide if all documentation of a template should be on the same page or different page from the template itself; but this thread can expand beyond it.

Reasons for Separate Pages

  • Keeps the documentation separated from the template itself
  • When one is updated, the other isn't affected. For example,  if one were to update the documentation of  Game Infobox in a separate page, then would not signal the 349 Transcluse pages to be cache purged.

Reasons Against

  • No Excessive Amount of /doc pages on Special:WantedTempaltes
  • No Additional Template Pages, for ones that only get transcluded once.

Thank you all for your time,


sorry for the double post, but the poll has closed with a result of 5-4.

I'll leave the thread open for further comments, but from this point on, consensus is to keep them separate.


Hmm I guess separate is best if thats what people want
