This is the sticky thread for questions related to the namespacing of works. As in, "which is the right namespace for this work?"

Ideally, questions already answered are covered on the Namespace Map. If you know a namespacing issue has already been resolved, but it is not yet documented on the Map, please update the Map.

If you want to suggest a new namespace, don't post here, but in Suggesting New Namespaces instead.

I don't know enough about the games to determine where the different entries need to go.

Neither of the games are particularly well known, so I'd be speculating at best. Any way of getting someone more familiar with these works to determine how the page needs to be split?

[up]You will have to either track down the page editors or find a forum (thread).

Otherwise, I can't see any way to split a YMMV tab - just cutlist it and be done with it would be my call.
I just cutlisted it. It's three entries, I can't figure out what to do with them, and there's only 2 inbounds. If someone wants to add them back, no one will stop them.

[up] I'm pretty sure those would fall under JustForFun/.

EDIT: And apparently that's not an official namespace. Don't we have a namespace specifically for Just for Fun pages?

No, we don't. Maybe we should.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty

I'd say we should as well.
I've seen a few pages in JustForFun/ and see no reason why it cannot be made official.

[up]I was asking the same thing on the last page. And Administrivia/, too.

I thought Administrivia/ was already an official namespace.
Seeking for Light
[up] It's not on the list. Although I have to admit I'm surprised about that, too.
In uffish thought
I think [=Just for Fun/ and Administrivia/ should definitely be official, since they're already used and make sense and all.

What's up with AnimaSolus.Anima Solus? Clearly that's the wrong namespace, but I'm having trouble figuring out what is. Is it meant to be Roleplay/?

I also agree with shifting Just for Fun pages to JustForFun.

With Administrivia/, though, there is the problem of the numerous redirects (Ask The Tropers, Lost and Found etc.), locked pages and Wiki Tropes.

My take is that Wiki Tropes should stay on Main/ but everything else (except these redirects and of course Home Page) can go to Administrivia/. Can we get official clearance here?
AnimaSolus.Anima Solus. Looks like Roleplaying to me, doesn't it?
Looks right. Also has nearly two hundred inbounds though.
The Evil Overlord List doesn't seem any more (or less) Just for Fun than, say, The Tough Guide to Fantasyland. How about a Books on Trope namespace? Or perhaps a (works of) Criticism namespace?

[up]What is the medium of these works?
The Tough Guide to Fantasyland is a print book, so I guess Literature, and by the same logic I suppose Web Original is not wrong for the Evil Overlord List.
What would Lucha Jack be? It's currently under the WebOriginal namespace - but we're not using that, anymore.
@elwoz and Septimus: Some time ago, I suggested a "Tropology/" (my first idea) namespace for Books on Trope (link). Fast Eddie said it "could be useful" (but nothing has come of it so far).

Some of the pages on Books on Trope are not actually about a single or an entire work — for example, The Hero's Journey. And even for the rest, IMO it makes sense to put works that discuss or analyze tropes (for example, Aristotle's Poetics) apart from works that use them for storytelling.

Let's just say and leave it at that.

[up][up]Web Original is being phased out.

I think that to address the Tropology/ question (and the Administrivia/ and JustForFun/), we might need a crowner.
Yes, I'm aware of that. My question was, what is Lucha Jack? I need to know, so that I can move it.

[up]Its source seems to be a webcomic, but the article reads like a meme.

Speaking of memes, where should articles for other memes like LOLCats or Chuck Norris Facts go?
250 SeptimusHeap24th Jun 2012 10:51:38 AM from Laniakea , Relationship Status: Mu
[up]I am tempted to chuck them onto Memes.Something Awful and Memes.Chuck Norrisevil grin. Don't think we need a meme namespace, sicne We Are Not A Meme Site.
