This page will be used to document a set of changes taking place on the wiki. The main goal of all of these changes is it improve usability and maintainability. The name DeadEiry is based on the strong association with the starter weapon, and all things that are annoying about being new at the game.
Introduction to the Project
The point of templates is to have data in one central location, and from there be able to show the same data on several pages. For example, all of Mayonnaise's food info is on one single template, Template:DataMayonnaise, and this info is used on many different pages. If a change needs to be made, instead of editing 50 different pages referencing Mayonnaise, you just have to edit the main template.
