After reading through some quest guides, we should make a new Quest: namespace. I want to hear what YOU wikians think about this proposal. Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 01:16, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Discussion

Strong oppose - First of all, we already have our two custom namespaces, so we would have to delete one in order to have a quest namespace. Second, we want the quest pages to be easy to find. I would much rather type "While Guthix Sleeps" over "Quest:While Guthix Sleeps". I can't see this helping the wiki.

Oppose - Per Steler. Also what are the 2 custom ones, and we can only have 2? scoot4.pngscooties 01:26, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - According to [[wikia:Help:Custom namespaces]], it's three. Our current custom namespaces are Update: and Exchange:. This is a limit created by Wikia, but it's not inherent to the MediaWiki software itself, which supports essentially unlimited number of custom namespaces. --Quarenon  Talk 01:30, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
Edit conflict beat me to telling you that. Thanks, Quarenon =D Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 01:31, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - I think there's no point in wasting our time in adding a "Quest:" namespace, also per Stelercus. Makxtrl Talk 01:28, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - With that logic we'd need Item: and NPC: namespaces too. Custom namespaces are for things that aren't guide / encyclopedia content. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:41, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - It doesn't really helps the wiki. --Nup(T) 03:20, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - We really need to chill out on the let's make a new namespace kick that everyone seems to be on. This isn't something we should be doing just anytime we feel like, we should have a very compelling reason. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 05:45, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - That would make them a lot harder to find. Also, they are normal mainspace articles. What could this namespace do that a category couldn't? Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 11:33, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Request closure - I get what you guys think now, it's just an idea. Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 04:01, January 3, 2010 (UTC)


Closed - Per proposer's request. --Quarenon  Talk 08:05, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
