Dead Island 2 Namespace

This wiki has grown immensely over the last few years and with Dead Island 2 around the corner, I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. So in preparation for the new game, I believe we should request a custom namespaces for Dead Island 2. The main wiki is already starting to blur the lines between the DI1 and DI: Riptide, and I don't want this wiki to end up like the elder scrolls wiki.

If you don't know what i'm talking about, go to that wiki and just look around at utter chaos and disorganization that is rampant throughout the entire wiki. Trying to look at information relating to any one game and you will be give pages with no clear indication as to what game it is talking about. Some pages might have "(Skyrim)" or something similar in the title. But not all skyrim pages have this. Some pages mix large amounts of content from multiple games into one for no reason! The fundamental problem stems from the fact that every game exists in the same namespace. Creating a clear and definitive line between the games on a wiki is so important I cannot stress it enough. I've already seen plenty of examples of users updating Dead Island 1 pages with stats/information from Dead Island Riptide. If that continues happening with DI2, the whole wiki will be overwritten.

So I feel we need a new namespace called "Dead_Island_2".

This would require deleting the current "Dead_Island_2" page (just move it temporarily before placing it in the new namespace) then making a special request to wikia for the new namespace. But first, wikia rules state that "There must be consensus on your wikia for the addition of the namespace".

Anyone agree? Disagree?
