We'd just be adding in a namespace tag in the middle of the URL like changing [[TBFGK 138:3]] to [[Comic:TBFGK_138:3]]. So links would be updated (and the auto-generated links in the pages). So, figure a week or two of upheaval while things get moved and then it should be fine. --Ichthus

Once that's done, we can figure out exactly how to work out the details to minimize the upheaval and then request a new (I suppose the name would be "Comic") namespace for the page/frame/text pages to separate them out and allow them to be separately searched and random-accessed.

Anyway, if a page is created as "Comic: xyz", does that put it into the "Comic" namespace? I was under the impression that admin level support is required for additional name spaces.
Ichthus wrote:Also, just because you create a comic with the "Comic:" prefix, doesn't create the namespace. Creating a namespace must be done in the config files of the wiki. You should be able to do the rest of it ahead of time though (should... I'm not an expert on MediaWiki, I've just done a little research at times) in case people want to get it moving.
