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.

A question on my own: Under which formula should items on Administrivia and Predefined Messages be moved to Administrivia/? Most of the pages there are guideline pages, but a few double as Wiki Tropes and/or as critical policy pages like Complaining About Shows You Don't Like.

Hello! Quick question, I started putting together a work page for Twelve Reasons Why I Love Her, but I kinda fudged up a bit, I didn't put: "Comic Book/" in front of the title, and now its indexed under "Main", how can I fix this?

How to Move a Page tells the instructions.
Thanks! I'll get to it tight away!
OK, all done! Page also has a picture now! :D

Ok, I am probably stepping into a hornet's nest here - is Chekov's Gun a trope or a Just for Fun page? Should it stay in /Main/ or go to a namespace? Moderatorsnote ?
I obviously can't give an "official" answer, but seems like putting it in a namespace ruins the joke, since misspelled links will never redirect you there.

Rhymes with "Protracted."

Unless you make the Main/ page itself a redirect to the namespaced version.

Where did I say that I wouldn't redirect the main page if it turned out that it belonged into another namespace?
It is a joke that works best in Main. Let's be careful to avoid obsessive classification.

Thanks.

Now, next question: It's officially agreed on that all Administrivia, Useful Notes and Just for Fun pages (except those with dedicated namespaces and Chekov's Gun, and Administrivia that double as index or Wiki Tropes) pages ought to go to their respective namespaces, yes? Or are there exceptions?

I can't imagine that we'd want any exceptions to that policy.
Should the Disney Animated Canon get the Western Animation namespace or the Franchise namespace?
Please help out our The History Of Video Games page.
Disney has its own namespace.
What goes around, comes around
what goes up, must come down
[up]I know that. All of Disney's movies have its own namepsace, but I'm talking about the Disney Animated Canon page itself, which is still in the Main namespace.

Put it in Franchise.
[up]Will do.
Please help out our The History Of Video Games page.
Also, should I or should I not redirect Franchise.Main to Franchise Index?

Not really, but Home Page would look neater as a redirect.

Well... I did redirect Franchise to Franchise Index. Should that be undone?

No, and it's not topic of this thread. There is a Special Efforts thread for Redirect Farming.
This thread had trouble deciding in which namespace to put Jenny Everywhere. My suggestion is Franchise/.

This looks like a special case - but I am fine with Franchise/.
It appears to me that motion capture films are currently going in the Film namespace: examples include Beowulf, Mars Needs Moms, and Tintin.

Discuss.
I am not sure where to tuck Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries. Both were originally books adapted in television series, but I have no idea how close the adaptations are to the original books.
