Choosing a name

If wiki uses various names

  • What if the home link has one name and a different name appears in the welcome message?
    • Personally I think we should link to the home link, but it may be a judgement call, SpookyWiki seemed pretty straight forward to me. That text could change anytime, but the FrontPage is always the same, unless there is a code change. MarkDilley
      • I agree TedErnst
      • Yes, and I'd go with what makes for a more "specific" name if it's a toss up --Ray 23:42, 22 Jan 2006 (EST)

If no name apparent

  • What if there is no name?
    • AnUnnamedMoinMoinWiki is a problematic name. See also: http://dunck.us/collab/FrontPage
      • We could use the url instead. TedErnst | talk 11:44, 30 Jan 2006 (EST)
      • I agree, and in my humble opinion, some wiki's are not worth having in the system and can be deleted. Of course we have to be a bit careful because sometimes an active wiki is offline for a short period of time, but there are a lot of wiki's that were no more than short lived experiments which are junking up our wiki. --Raymond King | talk 14:37, 30 Jan 2006 (EST)

Name styles

All the exampleas are CamelCase, but it is not needed in MediaWiki. Is there a policy of using CamelCase for preference? robinp 14:14, 7 Feb 2006 (EST)
