Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

:Agreed.  Current content should be moved to some kind of a list or gallery with templates, say ''Help:Template gallery'', while this page should be completely rewritten to reflect using, writing and documenting templates (though maybe only on a lower difficulty level and refer to [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Templates Mediawiki help pages] for the rest).

This page should be about how to use and write templates

I'd like to see this page be changed to what it tells, how to use a template, how to make one. Perhaps include (part of the) the list from Special:UncategorizedTemplates and the use of them.

Current content can be dropped, no probs.

Agreed. Current content should be moved to some kind of a list or gallery with templates, say Help:Template gallery, while this page should be completely rewritten to reflect using, writing and documenting templates (though maybe only on a lower difficulty level and refer to Mediawiki help pages for the rest).

I have now written Help:List of messagebox templates and have moved those templates to that page (and added a lot more of them there). They could need a bit of standardisation though, but that is another story.

Done Done I have now more or less completely rewritten the page (diff). It is now a help page proper, though there could still be more done.

Template localisation

I was wondering if we had a standard procedure to localise templates? I would like to have French translations for {{WIP}}, {{note}}, {{warning}}, and maybe {{BeingTranslated}} for the Fr/FGAddon article. I found this MediaWiki article: mw:Template localisation, however it is not very informative. —Bugman (talk) 06:35, 8 October 2015 (EDT)

See {{LangSwitch}}. For examples: {{News}}, {{GitStatus:open}}, {{Did you know}}...

See also the section #Translating templates on the help page. ;-)
I just made a few changes to make it more comprehensive.

Parts of the discussion was moved to FlightGear wiki:Village pump#Template translations (perm), as it begun to refer to more than just Help:Templates.
