Many pages on OpenWetWare are of the form namespace:page. For example, this page has a namespace of OpenWetWare and the page name is Namespaces.

The use of namespaces helps to prevent collision of page names and also is used for the dewikification of pages. When creating new namespaces, make sure it doesn't conflict with existing namespaces and any of their aliases (ignoring case differences). When creating pages under namespaces, always use the same primary namespace name as the prefix.

Still needs to be filled in more completely...
