Wikipédia Discussão:Convenção de nomenclatura/Limitações técnicas
Source:[] Article titles with a colon preceded by the title of a namespace are interpreted as being pages in that namespace so can't be used for articles in the main namespace. Article titles that would clash with an interwiki link prefix are also disallowed by the software (with a "bad title" error).
Examples of articles afflicted by this problem include:
- Help: a Day in the Life is located at Help-a Day in the Life (Help: is a Wikipedia namespace)
- Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! is located at Question: Are We Not Men? Answer: We Are Devo! (Q: is a shortcut to Wikiquote)
- Project: Mersh is located at Project Mersh (Project: goes to the Wikipedia namespace)
Before adding a new namespace or interwiki prefix, care must be taken to move any existing articles out of the way. However this is a task for server admins (developers) not wiki sysops or normal users.
Also, article titles cannot begin with a :. For example, [[:CueCat]] produces CueCat. Interestingly, [[::CueCat]] produces [[::CueCat]], which also links to the same article, as does http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/:CueCat . Article names starting with two or more colons, and links starting with three or more colons are forbidden: [[:::CueCat]] produces [[:::CueCat]], and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/::CueCat produces a bad title error.
Otherwise, embedded colons are OK, for example A:.
