Many namespaces can be linked to within the Homestar Runner Wiki.

Complete list of namespaces

Namespace Purpose Example
(main) Contains all the articles about Homestar Runner Main Page
Talk Contains discussion pages about the articles in the main namespace, one for each main-namespace page. Talk:Main Page
User Contains user pages - one page (and possibly subpages) for each user – see HRWiki:User page. User:JoeyDay
User talk Contains pages used to discuss things specifically with other users - add a message to the user talk page of the user you want to contact. User talk:JoeyDay
HRWiki Contains pages that are specifically about the wiki, rather than Homestar Runner - behind-the-scenes administration and similar things. HRWiki:The Stick
HRWiki talk Discussions about the HRWiki pages, one for each HRWiki page (similar to Talk). HRWiki talk:Standards
Image and Media When a file is uploaded (even if it's not an image) it goes into the Image namespace. A link labeled [[Image:filename]] will include the image in a page, clicking on it will go to an information page. [[:Image:filename]] will be a normal text link to that information page and [[Media:filename]] a direct link straight to the file Image:logo.png
Media:logo.png
Image talk Same as Talk, but for the images. Not regularly used on this wiki. Image talk:HRWikiPuzzle.png
MediaWiki Contains pages that control some part of how the wiki functions, and all the messages displayed by the wiki (so that users of the MediaWiki software can translate them). Only sysops can edit these pages, but anyone can make suggestions on the MediaWiki talk pages. MediaWiki:Sitenotice
MediaWiki talk Same as Talk, for MediaWiki pages. Used even less often than Image talk - the MediaWiki pages are relatively static. MediaWiki talk:Sitenotice
Template Contains pages that are intended to be included in another page with {{curly braces}}. If you use the curly braces and don't specify a namespace, the templates will come from here. Template:stub
Template talk Same as Talk, for the templates. Template talk:done
Help Contains pages designed to help people learn how to use the wiki. Help:Contents
Help talk Same as Talk, for Help pages. Help talk:Contents
Category These pages don't have much content, rather they are used to group other pages. Adding [[Category:categoryname]] to any page will put it in that category. Like with Image, you can use [[:Category:categoryname]] to link to a category. Category:Games
Category talk Same as Talk, for the categories. Category talk:Main Characters
Special This doesn't actually contain editable pages, but rather automated scripts, for various purposes such as the watch list and recent changes. It also has important pages for the maintenance of the wiki. Special:Specialpages

Interwiki Links

Although interwiki prefixes are not namespaces, you can use the namespace style to link to pages on other sites:
