Subpages are created by including a forward slash ("/") in the article title, creating the appearance of a directory structure. Some wikis use subpages to help organize information; an example would be a page named Starship/Federation. However, this method of naming pages would be extremely cumbersome, and therefore the accepted standard is to give the article a title that may be used as if in normal conversation — for example, Federation starships.
There are two cases where subpages are acceptable:
- User Pages
- Talk Pages
User pages are permissible because a user has only a single page allotted to them; subpages may help them organize their content better. On talk pages, subpages may be used to archive old discussions for future reference.
