[Space] Put your stuff on the wiki!

There are two ways to organize groups of pages on MediaWiki; I recommend 
using both.

The first is categories, so all pages containing 
[[Category:Spacebridge]] are automatically linked to from the category 
page. Categories themselves can be categorized, so I put 
Category:SpacebridgeBravoLaunch in Category:Spacebridge.

The other way is to put slashes in the page names, which causes links to 
"parent" pages to be automatically generated. I moved a couple pages to 
be under the main Spacebridge page this way and I'm moving some more now.

I think you need to be a wiki sysop to use the page moving feature; 
anyone who wants this ability can email me their wiki username and I'll 
make them able to. Keep in mind that if you move a page multiple times, 
you'll need to manually update the original name to point to the correct 
place. Eg, if A is moved to B, A will automatically redirect to B, but 
if B is then moved to C, A needs to be manually updated to point to C.
