Workshop Mod pages

I would like to create pages for large workshop mods like Day of Infamy. Jeremy Blum also announced this a long time ago, and I would love to get started with it.

The first step would be to create a custom namespace for these pages. I suggest the name

Mod

so the page for e.g. Day of Infamy would be

Mod:Day of Infamy

just like templates are called

Template:Infobox

If you have a better name (or any suggestion), please let me know in the comments, otherwise, I'll request this one.

I like it! I do have one concern: will each Mod page be a massive article regarding every piece of information for that mod or could they be split up under this model? If this were the case, do you think this would be a problem?

The only other option I see would be a total site restructure. Changing the current structure

Category:Gamemodes_of_Insurgency |||| Mod:Day_of_Infamy:Game_Modes
to something like
Insurgency:Game_modes |||| Day_of_Infamy:Game_Modes

Thoughts?

Well some mods are:

Day of Infamy

Operator

SOCOM:INS

etc.

A new site structure won't turn out well. After all, this wiki stays focused primarily on the vanilla game(s). The existing categories will remain the same. Maybe it's an idea to give info about in-mod items by subpages of the mod page. For example: the weapons article in Day of Infamy would be called Mod:Day of Infamy/weapons. I don't think every single item (like the Garant or Stielhandgranate) should get its own page. That can be done on seperate wikis, in this case w:c:dayofinfamy. Agree? We can always add them later, we'll see how it turns out. Let's start with the mod descriptions and inventarisation of in-mod items.

Apart from that, I will request the mod namespace, since nobody seems to object.

I was unaware w:c:dayofinfamy existed. If that's the case, we need only mention the mod on the insurgency wiki on one page, similar to the Insurgency page. That page may be used to inform readers about the mod and direct them to the other wiki.
