    Am I allowed to make a custom namespace for my article that doesn't fit anywhere else? For example, if something has so much prominence on, let's say Reddit, but there's no namespace available to document it's prominence on Reddit. (Bad example, I know) So I create a page titled "Reddit / The Work In Question". (Of course, without spaces) Am I allowed to do that? Reply

      You can check out the namespace help thread also. From there, there's also the Namespace Map. There is also the suggesting new namespaces thread.

      That said, some namespaces are kind of flexible — with Board Games falling under Tabletop Games (rather than something specific like BoardGame/). What namespace or work were you thinking of making a page for?

      @Water Blap | I want to make "Users / The Zimmer Twins" because The Zimmer Twins is a website that revolves around users, and being a really small community there's a set of the more popular users I want to showcase. Should I just put that under the "Characters" page?

      I don't think we trope users of websites. As it just so happens, the Website/ namespace has its own discussion thread, if you want to look through the thread for an answer (or to ask the people who maintain the Website/ namespace directly). The thread is simply called "Websites cleanup" in the long-term projects forum.

      On the first post of the thread, it says that "User antics are not tropeable," but also "User created content is potentially tropeable," so it might be worth asking in that thread.

      1) Sorry, but nope on just randomly creating namespaces. Folders are one thing, but when it comes to sorting things on the wiki, there's specific namespaces for a reason.

      2) Sorry again, but most of the time it's a nope on troping website users. The only exception is if they have a performing persona, like WWE wrestlers or some comedians.
