Articles without a ':' in their name are in the main namespace. This namespace is for articles; documents that aren't directly related to this may go in other namespaces. When articles are in another namespace, they are specified as namespace:article; i.e. this page is Help:Namespace.

CreationWiki
For non-article pages developed to help improve the organization and function this site.
(see: CreationWiki index)
Essay
Used for opinion pieces. Unless stated otherwise, essays are written by a single author and protected by default.
(see: essay index)
Help
Documentation about working with the wiki software. This could be mirrored from outside sites, or locally written.
(see: help index)
Image
For descriptions of uploaded files. You shouldn't create these directly; they are created when you click the Upload file link in the toolbox.
Media
Use this namespace to link to uploaded files directly, rather than through the description pages.
MediaWiki
Use this namespace to change the default system messages.
(see: See Help:System message on meta)
Portal
Used to organize the content of topics that have reached a significant developmental stage.
(see: portal index)
Project
Information about this wiki; i.e. policies that apply here. This namespace also has an alias, which is the name of the wiki installation.
Talk
Each page has a corresponding discussion page. This can be used for feedback/comments about that page, or other local notes that another group may want to associate with the page, without modifying the document directly, or for any other additional information to associate with the document.
(see: talk index)
Template
This is used for meta-information that is to be transcluded into multiple documents, such as tags to mark the status of a document.
(see: template index)
User
For personal notes. Each User has a corresponding user page for their own information. Users can also create subpages, by using a / after their name.
User_talk
The discussion page on a user's page can be used for leaving messages. If this page is edited, the next time that user logs in they will see a box notifying them that they have new messages
