Pages on a MediaWiki are grouped into collections called "namespaces", which differentiate between the purpose of the pages at a high level. Pages in certain namespaces can also have special properties or behave differently when they interact with other pages.
In MediaWiki, Namespace+Title is an universal identifier for resources. Every resource (Article, File, Category, etc) has its title and it is as good as numeric ID.
Any media element supported by FANDOM (mainly videos and images) which are stored in a file page of a given wiki. Files are stored in namespace number 6. Fandom does not host video streams itself, we store only thumbnail and metadata, video streams comes from external providers.
Categories are defined by users. Every article can have unlimited number of categories.
Each of the main FANDOM verticals which contain information related to either Video Games, Entertainment (TV or Movies) or Lifestyle.
Every article on the wiki has its revisions. If users edit the article, a new revision is created - the older version of the article is not deleted. You can access previous article revisions by it’s revision ID.
