See Template:Manual/Database for additional documentation on how to modify and use the database.
This is the super-category where all the templates
- Containing raw data
- Containing transformed data
- Containing the transformation code
in the database are categorized under.
The database is used to centralize certain information presented across the site, especially lists of items/articles/titles etc, which are used and re-used many times although the information may not be presented in the same way every time. Changing the list within the database will change every instance of that list, no matter the form of presentation as long as it is properly linked to the database.
