Should it be "WikiDrama" or "DramaWiki"

Postby MoerkJ » Mon Jul 25, 2005 8:21 pm

About the poll:
You probably know our wiki for asian drama tv series. It has the project name "WikiDrama" at the moment. I set up this poll because I'd prefer the name "DramaWiki" and it is still easy to make a name change. Since neither Ruroshin nor me want to decide this on our own we continue our tradition to let our users decide. :mrgreen:


note#1: the third option is just for the users who like polls but have no real opinion on this topic. :wink:
note#2: the poll will run only a few days (one week should be enough)



My personal opinion:
Of course we can keep the name as it is now. But I prefer "DramaWiki" because it is a wiki about dramas and not a drama about wiki. I suggest the name change now because it will be much more work to change it later when the wiki contains more references to its project name. When considering how English compound is defined "DramaWiki" makes more sense to me, because it is a Wiki in the first place (=compound head) which specializes in asian dramas (=compound modifier). Ok so much for EnglishGrammar101. Besides of that most wikis on the web are called SomethingWiki where Something is the topic of the wiki.

At first I liked WikiDrama better but now I've read the first post I'm totally for DramaWiki. Makes more sense and still sounds good.

I totally agree that WikiDrama gives the impression that it's a drama about wiki which is plain stupid so I vote too that the name is changed to DramaWiki!

wiki is like a brand name, and modifiers have always gone at the end of a brand, so wiki drama is the way to go

That makes sense... It should be called WikiDrama, and it's a drama wiki! :P

Yup, that's it exactly. :lol But either way won't really matter to me, because I'll still just refer to it as "the wiki".

ooops, too late for a vote.
i was getting used to it being wikidrama, so at first dramawiki seemed odd. but then i sat down and repeated dramawiki out loud til it stuck. i guess i'm adaptable. :D
