Change namespace for sections on main page

Currently there are templates being used to display what the about, current events, etc. displays on the main page. To make this more inline with how it's supposed to be used according to Wikipedia and MediaWiki, it should be under the wiki specific namespace, "Alathra_Wiki". For example "Alathra_Wiki:Did You Know" not "Template:DidYouKnow". :) ― Levi_OPtalk 17:56, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Ah, good catch. I'll move those pages over. Zaktoslph (talk) 23:57, 13 August 2021 (UTC)
I see you redirected "Template:About" to "Alathra_Wiki:About", but only the about page. My original intent was that you changed all of the sections to "Althra_Wiki:..." pages and used {{Althra_Wiki:Did_You_Know}} instead of just using the redirect. The template namespace is a place for putting things that you want to be able to use on multiple pages, not just the front page, hence why I suggested that you switch to the wiki-specific namespace.

Add deletion templates?

(Since there isn't really any where else to make requests for the wiki, i'm just going to ask here)
On wikipedia there are templates which you place on pages that you think serve no purpose and should be deleted quickly. The admins will check the category to see if the articles should be deleted and subsequently delete them. Template to import... I was wondering if we could add this, since there are some articles that could be considered vandalism that I would like to be able to help remove as fast as possible. (This page) for example.

Updated map

Slightly annoyed at the months-old political map, so I took the opportunity while I still have admin privileges over the page to update it. Apologies as I don't know how the administration of the wiki works nowadays with the administration of the front page, nor the rights to the image, so revert if needed. --Zaktoslph (talk) 04:06, 24 August 2022 (UTC)
