As part of my work consolidating Learning and Evaluation resources on Meta-Wiki, I have now moved the (few) remaining pages out of the Programs and Programs talk namespaces. I would therefore like to request that they are removed along with Participation and Participation talk, which similarly are unused except for redirects. (I would like for the redirects to be kept.)
I appreciate that this was rejected when it was first proposed three years ago; however, I personally don't find the explanation satisfactory. Meta does not have a policy against cross-namespace redirects, and I think having "ugly" redirects is an acceptable cost of removing clutter from the UI and properly integrating content with the rest of the website.
Original 2014 proposal:
As part of reorganizing the Grants: namespace on metawiki, we have moved all pages out of the Participation: namespace on metawiki to Grants: namespace.
Currently, the Participation: namespace includes only redirects to old page. Based on the community discussion which can be found at (https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Meta:Babel&oldid=6752207#Organizing_the_Grants:_namespace) could you please remove Participation: (ns:204) and Participation talk: (ns:205) namespaces, and move all current pages (redirects) to the main namespace ns:0.
