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.

Metal Gear is a page for the video game series as a whole, and it's on the main namespace. The problem is that VideoGame.Metal Gear is already used for the first game in the series. Should I move Metal Gear to the Franchise/ namespace or just let it where it is?

I'd consider moving the first game to MetalGearOne (or something similar). I think the rule is only to use Franchise/ when dealing with works that transcend a particular medium.

Where does You Are Umasou go? I know it doesn't go under Film/, since Film/ is only for live-action. Would it go under Anime/? The article says that the work was made in Japan, which would generally make it anime. However, there's no mention in the article about it being anime.

Where would consoles like the Nintendo Entertainment System and PlayStation go? Would they go to the VideoGame/ namespace, or do they need their own namespace?
Please help out our The History Of Video Games page.
@Elbruno: Another option would be to move Metal Gear to Metal Gear 1987.

[up][up] @movie007: You Are Umasou is Anime — "Anime" = Japanese animated films.

[up] @Waxing Name: I think a mod once said that they are to be put into UsefulNotes/. Can't remember where it was posted, though.

It's perfectly possible to admire building a cannon to destroy the moon, whilst lamenting the act of destruction.
Thanks! Off to move it to Anime/.

If console systems serve as indexes of games on that platform, they stay in Main, I think. If the article is about their specs, history, market success, and the like, it's Useful Notes.

So it's either Metal Gear 1 or Metal Gear 1987. Do we have any other case like that one to compare, just so we can keep the titles consistent?

[up] We have, for example, three different The Three Musketeers films.

For a slightly different solution, see The Liar, which is a novel by Stephen Fry as well as an Armenian folktale.

Question: Is an entirely CGI film WesternAnimation/ or Film/? Or even Animation/? According to all the info I can find there is no Live Action actors in it at all, only CGI.

Okay, I'll move VideoGame.Metal Gear to VideoGame.Metal Gear 1987; then I'll make the former a redirect of the latter, I'll fix the wicks, and then finally I'll move Metal Gear to VideoGame.Metal Gear, erasing the redirect I made earlier. What a mess...

EDIT: Aaaaaaaaaand... done. It was quite the work, there was natter everywhere.

Looks like we have a lot of Dino Documentaries to move from Series/ to Western Animation/

I noticed Shin Megami Tensei is under Video Game. Shouldn't it be Franchise?

[up] Isn't Franchise/ for multimedia franchises, like Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh!? It was said in the Namespace Map and this thread here If the franchise is made up of a single form of media like Metal Gear was moved to Video Game/.

Mega Ten, however, has animated adaptations and drama CDs. Also, manga adaptations except for the video games.

Ah, alright I'll move it to Franchise/ then. I guess I have to pay more attention.

It's okay. Most of those adaptations are for the Persona sub-series, so it's easy to miss.

Okay, so as it was mentioned like four pages back, where do drama CD's and Audio plays go? Not all audio plays are in radio or podcast form and therefore wouldn't fit.

"Learning without thinking is labor lost. Thinking without learning is dangerous."
[up]I don't think we have a rule for that yet. Possibly we'll need a new namespace.

The medium is Audio Play, then. The exact method of transmission is of little importance. A drama CD is a drama, either literature or theater. It won't get a different article if it comes out on blueray or as a download.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty
We ain't got a namespace AudioPlay/ yet. — We do already have Radio/ and Podcast/, though.

So I guess I should mention Audioplay/ in the Suggesting new namespaces thread then. Thanks.
"Learning without thinking is labor lost. Thinking without learning is dangerous."
Where do miniseries like Jesus of Nazareth and Anne Frank The Whole Story go? An argument might be made that they are more at home in Film/ than in Series/.

I almost moved Eddie Izzard to Creator/, but then I noticed it actually appears to be a work page for his stand-up comedy. I don't think we have a namespace for stand-up...?
