Media namespaces -- a battery of questions:

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.

Should Korean Webtoons (meaning comics, and not animated videos or flash) go under Webcomic/, or do they go under Manhwa/?

Is there something that distinguishes them especially from other webcomics?

Tsundere pet.
[up] They're pretty much formatted like dead-tree manhwa, not like webcomics. I've seen suggestions to put them under Manhwa.

So, similar to dead-tree Western comics that are scanned and put up on the web? If so, then sure, Manhwa sounds appropriate.

Post No. 146:

I see that my perception that Disney/ was originally intended for Disney Animated Canon was correct, after all. I've recently updated the Namespace Map to "for all Disney films", but I think limiting it to Disney Animated Canon is actually better.

People keep asking whether Pixar films etc. go to Disney/, and no one seems to know the answer on these questions. Whereas "Disney Animated Canon only" seems to be a fairly unambiguous criterion.

An unrelated issue: The Namespace Map says under WebVideo/:
Live-action shows to be taken from Web Original, Vlog Series, The Abridged Series/Gag Subs/Dubs
What does this actually mean? That Vlog Series, Abridged Series and Gag Dubs go to WebVideo/? For the latter two are still listed under "types of works that don't have a namespace assigned". Sorry I have to ask this, but I didn't keep track with the recent decisions.

It's perfectly possible to admire building a cannon to destroy the moon, whilst lamenting the act of destruction.
Is there general agreement then that /Disney should remain just Disney Animated Canon until someone makes a convincing argument otherwise?

Should Main.Albert Einstein be moved/namespaced?

If so, to what namespace?

People aren't tropes. Given that we treat him as a media figure and not as a creator, it should probably go under Useful Notes.
Can the tropes applied to him, as well as his references in popular fiction remain on the page?

As soon as I get the requisite clarification, I'll go ahead and do the namespacing.

Yes, they can.

We have a lot of articles on "famous people" that aren't namespaced: Barack Obama, George W. Bush, George Washington...

Didn't we at one point agree to put them all somewhere? I can't remember now. May be best to hold off until we get clarification.

Eh, I've kind of already started. :/ If I should stop, would you mind reverting said edits since it's a lot easier for you to do as a moderator than for me as a user?

Well, I guess you can go ahead and continue the project. I personally think all those articles should go in Useful Notes. Let's not arbitrarily undo stuff that may have to be re-re-undone later or whatever. [lol]
Fair enough. Useful Notes/ seems better than Main/, and if we have to change it to a different name later, well, I haven't created more work for whoever moves it later.

@Gro: In regards to the Gag Dubs and Abridged Series being under WebVideo/, I actually brought up that scenario when we're voting on what namespaces to replace WebOriginal/ with.

Neither FanVid/ nor AbridgedSeries/ did pass, and ccoa did say (before the vote closed) that in the case that these two ideas are voted against, WebVideo/ would be the most sensible choice, so there they are for the meantime.

[up] I see - thanks for the update.

@Elle: Maybe we should have a crowner vote on the definition of the Disney/ namespace.

I would like to suggest keeping the "Disney" namespace because the spin-off animated series, like "The Little Mermaid", should remain on the Western Animation namespace.
Magic people, voodoo people!
[up]The choice is not between keeping Disney/ or not, but whether it should contain only the Disney Animated Canon, or generally "any animation by Disney" (though that brings up the question how we treat animation by separate studios that are owned by Disney, such as Pixar).

Or does your post mean that you want Disney/ reserved for Disney Animated Canon?

Where should an article about the network TLC go?
Useful Notes is the namespace. Networks is the index.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty

Does anyone have a real answer to this?

 171 Troacctid, Sat, 5th May '12 11:27:29 PM from California
Pages about video game consoles are going to be Useful Notes as well.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Trying to make a crowner to sort out this whole Disney/ thing right now...

... and done!

[up]A crowner for what? The Disney/ namespace exists because putting these in the "normal" namespaces would create loads of duplication.

Yes, but the question still remains. I've seen a few works using the namespace that's not considered DAC, so I'm hoping this would sort things out.

The spin-off series based on the Disney Animated Canon should be spun off to Westen Animation.
