Ah, here's the thread I wanted to find!

I want to second Oreochan's suggestion for an Audio Play/ namespace. Even if we put radio audio plays under Radio/, that still leaves a large number of audio plays created during the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s (between the time TV killed radio as a dramatic format, and the rise of the web) that have no place to go.

This is not a theoretical question: I actually have a work page I'd like to make, but have no valid namespace for it.
Speaking words of fandom: let it squee, let it squee.

I would be fine with AudioPlay/ as a namespace.
Would AudioPlay/ include things like Drama CDs? Yandere No Onna No Ko, for instance.

I assume so, though I'm completely unfamiliar with the work in question. It's a superset of Radio (Play). ("Play" as in theatre, not as in game.)

If Video Game Systems are going to be moved out of Main/, there ought to be a Platform/ namespace. I really don't want them shoved into UsefulNotes/ (except SNES CDROM) with all the other useless stuff in there.

[up] Technically, they're indexes, so they don't need to go anywhere.
[up]Technically, a lot of Creator/ pages serve as indexes now. Should they not do so?

No, the other one.
[up]Technically, aren't they still both indexes and pages for the creators? If they're indexes to begin with. Technically.

Folkage! Those of you interested in the process of creating new [media] namespaces may want to know about this discussion.
Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
Do we want a Timeline/ namespace for works that tend to have complicated chronologies? It won't be compulsory or anything of course. I'm thinking we could put stuff like this.

I'm not sure why Recap wouldn't work for that. I'm just leery of adding more namespaces.
A Recap doesn't work because a) a work might not be told chronologically and b) if there's a backstory, there's a good chance it won't be told chronologically. Recap wouldn't work for this, for instance.

Eh, I could consider adding a Timeline/ namespace, but I'd like to have example pages for which it's necessary.

We have a Timeline.Homestuck page. Because if any series needs a straightforward explanation of its chronology, it's one that has eight different universes (none of which synchronize with each other chronologically), several characters with time travel powers, and which uses Anachronic Order like it's going out of style.

Well, I see 3 pages in this namespace. I'll support the motion to make it an official namespace.
And we don't actually have to move anything since it's a completely optional thing. All we need is an index and adding it to namespace.

Maybe use Timeline.Home Page as the index?
68 SeptimusHeap21st Jan 2013 09:04:48 AM from Laniakea , Relationship Status: Mu
Ok, I've gone ahead and added Timeline/ to the namespace list.

As an aside, can we have a Fanspeak/ namespace for these pages that aren't supposed to have examples both on- and off-page?

I would think that Fanspeak terms would fit fine under Useful Notes—isn't that where we already stash them?

If that is true (and reading the Useful Notes page, that seems a bit like misuse of the namespace - it really doesn't fit #1 and #2 there), I'd like to have a definitive policy statement.

For the record, it's things like Kuudere that inspire the question.

[up]I thought 1, 2, and 3 were three different possible reasons for having a Useful Notes page, not requirements that must all three be met. But that's just my interpretation; we may want a more authoritative opinion.

Well, we had a discussion about how these pages have grown so prevalent that they are almost a shadow Wikipedia, so I'd like to have some restriction there.

I fail to see how putting terms like Kuudere under Useful Notes would not at least fall under both #2 and #3. #1 is debatable but I don't see it as a necessity. As an alternative to a Fanspeak namespace, it has a great deal of merit.

[up]Quite frankly, it is far more applicable to the wiki's mission that many other things in Useful Notes. tongue

Such a solution (Useful Notes) is being used on Pettanko already. We could use it on things like kuudere as well.

I think we could use a Toy (or maybe Toy Line) namespace, mainly because, well, we have the Toys index.
