I have SVN server https://blabla.com/svn. I have range op projects that are related on the same theme and I'm thinking about creating folder in SVN called related_projects and projects must be placed in this folder like this:

https://blabla.com/svn/related_projects/project1
https://blabla.com/svn/related_projects/project2
https://blabla.com/svn/related_projects/projectN

Is it possible to make like this? Our system administrator tells that nobody does like this? But why not?

Of course it's possible. That looks ALMOST like the "multiple projects" example at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.branchmerge.maint.html#svn.branchmerge.maint.layout . I don't actually see a reason for the extra subdirectory "related_projects"; most of the time you just put all the projects in your repository side-by-side. But nothing stops you from creating extra subdirectories to your heart's content. If you have an existing repository with "trunk", "tags", and "branches" directly under the repository root, I guess it might make some sense to add new projects in a subdirectory.
