Page titles in MediaWiki are actually composed of two parts: an optional namespace name, and the remainder of the title. For example, this page has the title [[Help:Namespaces]], so it is in the Help namespace. A title without a colon, for example [[DirectX]], is in the main namespace.
The Namespaces used in EVElopedia are:
Namespaces allow, among other things, a separation of content from policy and discussion. They encourage separation of the pages of a wiki into a core set intended for public viewing, and private information intended for the editing community.
By default, searches and the random page feature are restricted to the main namespace, thus the user interface is directed towards readers who are not part of the community.
Colon in page name
Adding a colon to a page name does not create a new namespace, so you should not add names with new/unused namespaces.
Main article: Help:Special page
The namespace "Special:" consists of "special pages", which are created by the software on demand, for example Special:Recentchanges.
