Please see Help:Namespace at Wikimedia's Meta-Wiki for background information, until we can get something written up here.

As can be seen in the table below, every "non-talk" page has an associated "talk" page that can be reached by following a link or tab called "Discussion" or "Discuss this page".

Note: The link on each namespace prefix below is to a list of all existing pages within that namespace.

Namespace prefix Description of purpose of namespace

Talk Discussion of the articles themselves. The purpose of the "talk pages" is to assist editors in developing quality articles, not general discussion and debate; for the latter see the Discussion Forum.
