Abstract Wikipedia/Wiki of functions naming contest/Wikigebra



  • Portmanteau of Wikipedia and algebra;
  • Easy to translate (d:Q3968) or even transliterate into many other languages and in many other scripts;
  • Meaningful and memorable name related to math (see algebraic function and abstract algebra: the word algebra is a link between the two new Wikimedia projects; math is probably one of few abstract and international languages understood anywhere in the world);
  • Not too short, not too long (both gebra and pedia have 5 letters), and in rhyme with Wikipedia and Wikidata (all of which finish with the letter a);
  • Interwiki links will be possible by the distinct and available letter g, for example g:test.



  • Hi GZWDer, Is this name translatable into Chinese? 4nn1l2 (talk) 05:18, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
    • Yes, but I will not support as this is only one of aspects of "Wiki of functions".--GZWDer (talk) 06:09, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Hi Amire80, Is this name OK in Hebrew and Russian, two languages I don't have the slightest clue about? 4nn1l2 (talk) 06:38, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
    Translatable, though not necessarily easy to understand. And hey, I expressed my opinion about Hebrew and Russian because that's what I know, but there are hundreds of other languages, and I hope people share their view about them, too! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 06:55, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Hi DVrandecic (WMF), As I far as know, you were the one behind these two new Wikimedia projects. While canvassing is allowed[1], this is not meant to be canvassing. I just want to know if "algebra" is close to what you had in mind about Wikilambda. I have already read the guide pages, but I'm not sure if I have a clear vision of this project. Thanks for your time. 4nn1l2 (talk) 08:49, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
    Thanks for the proposal! Calling it an 'algebra' isn't too bad. I saw this proposal, and was considering it. The rationale for the name is good, but the the mere sound of it didn't ring with me. Regarding canvassing, you probably saw this already. --DVrandecic (WMF) (talk) 14:18, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
