Hi,

I am Daniel, from Spain. I would like to change the name of the wiki 
pages related to the Australia mapping project to remove the 
"Wikiproject" prefix following the pages name conventions [1].

The name of the pages related to the Australia mapping project would be 
"Australia" (name of place) instead of "Wikiproject Australia", as 
recommended by the wiki conventions. It is a change that I have already 
made in United States [2], Canada [3], Spain [4], and all 
Spanish-speaking countries [5] on the Wiki.

I could make the necessary changes, and also add the "Country" template 
[6] to the Australia project page, although this change is optional.

All pages with "WikiProject" prefix will be redirected automatically. 
There will be no broken links in any case.  I'll make sure everything 
works correctly, just like now.

Do you like the idea? I have posted this message on the wiki in case you 
prefer to comment there [7].

Thank you for you attention! Greetings from Spain.

Regards,
Daniel
