Page titles in MediaWiki are composed of two parts: an optional namespace name, and the remainder of the title. For example, this page has the title TaxAlmanac:Namespaces, so it is in the TaxAlmanac namespace. A title without a colon, for example Contributing, is in the main namespace.

Namespaces allow a separation of content from policy and discussion. They encourage separation of the pages of a wiki into a core set intended for public viewing, and private information intended for the editing community.
