Create Wikiprojekti namespace on Finnish Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic0 Story Points


Per discussion on the Finnish Wikipedia create us the following namespaces for wikiprojects:

Keskustelu wikiprojektista (talk page)

And enable visual editor in Wikiprojekti namespace.

This is because we want to move the pages under "Wikipedia:Wikiprojekti ..." to the new namespace where we can use visual editor.
Is it possible to move the pages automa[t/g]ically or do we have to do it manually?

The move can be done by a bot, I can do it for you. Server-side move is technically possible but I don't think it'll be processed.

Whenever a new namespace is added, please always run namespaceDupes.php, not running it caused T157994: Page lost after creating a new namespace in this case.
