Project Eco[edit]



  • to honor Umberto Eco’s work, in particular the book “The search for a perfect language”, which details the history of projects which have failed at the goals of this project
  • This name does not indicate it is a wiki.--GZWDer (talk) 04:07, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
  • I like the idea, but it could also be confused with "Eco" as in ecology, and it might lean too heavily on Abstract Wikipedia/natural language instead of functions in general. PiRSquared17 (talk) 04:16, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
  • So-so. Doesn't make the functionality obvious, and can be confused for ecology. But the tribute is cute≤ and it's easily translatable. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 11:05, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
  • No - it is not easy to translate (not transliterate) to Chinese if the translated name needs to be informative. In Chinese, names of Wikimedia project are never transliterated..--GZWDer (talk) 13:35, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
  • For consistency, I will not prefer any names that do not start with "Wiki". For this one, "Wiki" is not in the name at all.--GZWDer (talk) 13:40, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
  • It is probably a good idea for the second phase, not for the Lambda phase. --Sannita - not just another it.wiki sysop 13:38, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
