Would like to see "About" page moved to the Main namespace....

Optimist, I'd like to move the About page (as well as all of the policy pages) to the Main namespace, which, I could do, easily enough. But, what I can't do is change the pointers down in the footer. Would you be be willing to consider this? --RWSmith 15:00, April 16, 2007 (EDT)

Actually, that's the way the system came. I may be able to change them but the next upgrade might knock them right back to the way they are now. --Optimist 18:11, April 16, 2007 (EDT)
Eewww...okay. Nevermind. --RWSmith 20:05, April 16, 2007 (EDT)

Namespace Prefix (like a Shortcut) of MB: for MeritBadgeDotOrg:

What do you think? --RWSmith 2010, April 16, 2007 (EDT)

Sounds great :-) --Optimist 21:07, April 16, 2007 (EDT)
Know how? --RWSmith 09:50, April 17, 2007 (EDT)
It was your idea LOL --Optimist 12:51, April 17, 2007 (EDT)
Are you saying something like #REDIRECT [[Page]] {{R from shortcut}} -- Jay Lee 03:12, April 18, 2007 (EDT)
Well, I tried that; but, it didn't work. What I want to do is like this:
  • WP:Policy = Wikipedia:Policy
  • MB:Policy = MeritBadgeDotOrg:Policy
I want to the project namespace MeritBadgeDotOrg: to be transparently synonymous with MB: --RWSmith 09:56, April 18, 2007 (EDT)

I don't see this link anywhere on pages with "!". - Jay Lee 19:13, April 24, 2007 (EDT) (".)

Please Use The Forums

The forums on have two sections devoted to this website. They are:

  • (The Wiki) - This section is open to the general public and can be used to discuss topics related to the needs of this web site.
  • Wiki Admin - This section is closed to the general public. It can only be accessed by Sysops. It is mostly for administrative concerns but can also be used to discuss topics related to the needs of this web site.

Using the forums instead of this page serves two purposes. First, there are many knowledgeable people who use those forums and their opinions are beneficial. Second, problems can be resolved quicker if all the sysops know about it; just telling me may result in a delay.


How would I volunteer to become a sysop? I would like to become more actively involved in the site, and that seems like a good way to do it.Epmatsw 20:09, June 19, 2007 (EDT)

Like most sites, sysops here are chosen based on their record: how beneficial their efforts have been to the site, how much they encourage others, and whether or not they obey the rules. Since this is a relitively new web site, the sysops were chosen based on their record in our forums ( ) which have been around for several years. Optimist 21:29, June 19, 2007 (EDT)
