I don't know if anybody else is paying attention, but Rednaxela brought up the idea of using a separate namespace for Archived Talk (on Talk:Migration), and I think it's a really good idea. I want to read up on Mediawiki namespaces a bit more before digging in and doing it, but I just wanted to note here that this is in the plans... --Voidious 15:59, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm paying. I want it. This little piece of code put in LocalSettings.php will do:

// Custom namespace
define ("NS_ARCHIVED", 100);
define ("NS_ARCHIVED_TALK", 101);
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_ARCHIVED]      = "Archived";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_ARCHIVED_TALK] = "Archived_talk";

At least it do on my MediaWiki/1.14 installation at Thai RoboWiki. This will create the Archived and Archived_talk: namespaces. » Nat | Talk » 16:07, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

I kind of wonder what would hapepen if you omit the NS_ARCHIVE lines and leave the NS_ARCHIVED_TALK lines. Being an odd ID should still signify to it that it's a 'discussion' namespace, but not having NS_ARCHIVED might usefully do something? Or maybe that would just break it. I don't know. Just pondering --Rednaxela 17:13, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

That will result like this:
(Sorry for censors, but I use Firefox Thai and reading Harry Potter Fanfiction right now and I don't want you all to know what exactly story I'm reading) This is a new installation with MediaWiki/1.14.0 with following line in LocalSettings.php
// Custom namespace
define ("NS_ARCHIVED", 100);
define ("NS_ARCHIVED_TALK", 101);
//$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_ARCHIVED]    = "Archived";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_ARCHIVED_TALK] = "Archived_talk";
but I'm agree that the Archived is useful for one other thing, to archived a full collection unmodified (except the table) articles from the old wiki.

I've created "Archived" and "Archived talk" namespaces. I'm not sure what "Archived" will be used for, but we may want it, so it's there. I can move the existing Archived Talk pages with a wiki-bot sometime. --Voidious 02:19, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

I have some old code which fix the links... Should be pretty easy for me to move it. Question: Do you want redirect page or not? --Nat Pavasant 02:54, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Just to keep everyone up to date: I'm chatting with Nat and he's moving the pages to the "Archived talk" namespace. The Template:Navbox small template doesn't work right on the pages after they're moved, but I think we can fix that later. --Voidious 03:51, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
