Title says it all. It is useless to us. It was a good idea at first, but now it has a low amount of pages to actually make use of its own namespace. We need to get rid of the namespace.

Proposal - Kill that namespace; Move current pages to appropriate subpages (ex. Map:Nex -> Nex/Map)

Oppose - What's wrong with keeping them? It's not as if making a subpage is easier than creating a article in the map namespace. As well, it's not hard to just have something like the Ancient Guthix Temple article call the map page with {{Map:Ancient Guthix Temple}} to show it on the page.

Oppose - The point of having the namespace was not to have the oasis sidebar. Moving them to the mainspace would make most maps spill over the edge becoming far more annoying to use. Plus, the don't hurt in their own namespace. cqm 09:27, 28 Jan 2013 (UTC) (UTC)

Oppose - I don't know what you mean by "low amount of pages". There's 105. 105 maps. That's quite a lot, don't you think? Besides that, you didn't specify any other reasons for getting rid of it. Also, let's not cut for Bieber. Matt (t) 11:04, January 28, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose - Per above. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 13:09, January 28, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose - So, following your logic, would we delete the Help namespace, if that was possible? It has roughly the same amount of pages. Blaze_fire.png12.png 18:30, January 28, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose - I consfess my flabber to be gasted, Mr. Hairrazerrr. Ronan Talk 20:55, January 28, 2013 (UTC)

Closed - I'm withdrawing this proposal. Though, I still feel that the map namespace should be removed, it's obvious that everyone disagrees. It's unlikely that will change, so I see there be little to no need to keep this open. Hair 01:24, January 29, 2013 (UTC)
