Text transclusion[edit]

Episode lists[edit]

These templates are used as a central place to add/update the lists of transcription pages on the site.

Intros & Outros[edit]

The SGU has had a number of different outros over the years. Inserting the following templates transcludes the voiceover at the end of an episode.

episodes 289 & 290 use the same text as 291-300, but are voiced by Steve

Quick text & links[edit]

  • W – creates in-line link to Wikipedia

The following templates can be used to insert the full name of frequently used organizations, with or without the external link

  • SGU – inserts " Skeptics' Guide to the Universe"
  • CSICOP – inserts " Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal"
  • NESS – inserts " New England Skeptical Society"


  • Category info – uniform blurb on the indexing of articles listed on a category page

Message boxes[edit]

Message boxes are temporarily added to highlight the page's status, e.g. in progress, needs editing/proof-reading etc.

The following message boxes are used as place holders to avoid duplication:

  • Transcribing – indicates transcription of segment is in progress
  • Transcribing all – indicates transcription of entire episode is in progress
  • Proof reading – indicates proof reading of segment is in progress
  • Proof readingall – indicates proof reading of entire episode is in progress


Table entries[edit]

Templates are an easy way to add formatted entries into table cells or rows.

Icons & images[edit]

  • Navigation – 3 images linking to the previous page, top of the current page, and the next episode, respectively. This is added at the very bottom of every transcription page
  • 5X5 Navigation – as Navigation, but for 5X5 episodes


When these templates are added to a page, they add that page to the relevant category.
