Project: DESTINY

I wanna add a link to Project: DESTINY, but apparently "[[Project:" means something in MediaWiki. Halp? --GuyPerfect 20:20, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Although "Project: Destiny" would be technically correct, it looks like it'a just a limitation of MediaWiki that no pages can ever start with a title of "Project:". Looks like maybe we'll have to just live with using something like "Project Destiny" instead. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 05:00, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
"Project:" is an alias for the project's namespace, which in our case is "Paragon Wiki:". It allows for a cross-wiki way of linking to the project namespace. Unfortunately, Eabrace is right, there's no way to start a page with "Project:". You can read more on this topic here: wikipedia:Wikipedia:Page_name#Invalid_page_names, wikipedia:Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(technical_restrictions)#Colons. My recommendation is to create Paragon Wiki: DESTINY as a redirect to Project Destiny (or wherever you were planning to have it go). Then when you like to Project: DESTINY it will go to the right place, despite the fact it travels through another namespace. -- Sekoia 18:23, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
I guess that limitation is why the current article is located at Operation: DESTINY, and not the correct name. SpaceNut 18:27, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
