LiquidThreads namespace for Thread Talk: causes problems, especially for history/revisions
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Please see http://liquidthreads.labs.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&from=201011100000&days=30&limit=500#23_October_2010 and scroll down to the October 23 section.

I was testing the difference between [[Special:MoveThread]] and [[Special:MovePage/Thread:$1]] when I realized that pages in the Thread Talk: namespace could not be accessed via history, viewing, editing, reading or otherwise. When I moved a page into the namespace, the only way that it could be accessed was by moving it out, or viewing the transclusion for the thread on the appropriate talkpage.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.

I think this report has a point but is too broad. Yes, having a single separate namespace to host content which actually belongs to multiple other namespaces is a bit weird, but has become somewhat common in the meanwhile.

Better file separate reports for specific issues. For instance, my pet peeve is that I can't filter recentchanges by LQT threads included in a specific namespace.
