Hi everyone👋 Is there anyone really proficient with namespaces? Need some help to understand their logic 1. In the case where two tests have the same trigger point, they should be added into the same namespace and attributed to different range values (in order to make them mutually exclusive), right? 2. If I have the same two tests, but I add them to different namespaces on 100%, are they mutually excluded from each other or not? 3. In the case where two tests have different trigger points: Test 1: Control (page 1), Variation (page 2) Test 2: Control (page 2) Variation (page 3) But I still don't want them to overlap (test 1 variation users not be included into test 2). What should I do here? Splitting into different ranges doesn't seem logical since they don't share the same traffic stream/starting point.

That's up to you if you want to keep them mutually exclusive. Often times it's ok to run tests overlapping so long as the user experience of each isn't broken. But yes, if you want them to be mutually exclusive, this is how you would do it.

They are not. Different namespaces are treated totally separately, so then these two tests could (and would) overlap.

It's still the same. You're reserving a portion of the total set of
ids
that could ever visit your site when you give them a range of the namespace. So it's not like reserving traffic at one trigger point, but rather reserving all potential traffic that hits that namespace.
