All The Tropes:Namespaces

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Due to ATT using MediaWiki, we have namespaces, much like TV Tropes, but they work differently, and below is a description of the namespaces and how they work on All The Tropes:

  • Main - the main namespace. All actual content goes here.
  • Talk - Discussion namespace. All main namespace pages have talk page counterparts.
  • User - The name space of our users (aka Tropers). Each troper has their own user space, and can create as many subpages here as they wish.
  • User Talk - Counterpart discussion pages for each user.
  • All The Tropes: Project namespace. Policy pages and pages with information specific to this wiki go here, and all have a corresponding discussion namespace where these pages may be discussed.
  • File - Pages for uploaded files, giving a description, thumbnail display, link to the full file, and so on. Images may be discussed individually on the talk pages for that namespace.
  • MediaWiki - Site code or site messages go here. This area can only be edited by sysops, but users may discuss changes on the talk pages.
  • Template - Template namespace, these can be transcluded onto other pages to provide added functionality.
  • Help - Help documentation for the MediaWiki software.
  • Category - Our equivalent of TV Tropes's index pages.
  • Thread - All pages that are threads created by the LiquidThreads extension.
  • Summary - Archival for forum summaries on the old DPL forum.
  • Forum - Archival space for our old forum, though some of our current new forum pages reside here as well.
  • Widget - Namespace for Widgets added for the Widgets extension. Editable by sysops only, new widgets may be requested on the forums.
  • Trope Workshop - Our namespace equivalent of TV Tropes YKTTW namespace. New trope pages can be worked on and discussed here.
  • Module - Namespace used for templates using the Lua coding language.
