Special rules for templates
Spaces in the name are allowed, e.g. Template:Train topics. The first character (only) is not case-sensitive, so Template:Cleanup and Template:Cleanup are the same template, but Template:Cfd and Template:CfD are not.

The template name in general should be short. Many on Wikipedia are abbreviations.

Namespaces:
Only the system admin can create a namespace. Namespaces should only be created after much discussion. The name should be a single word.
