  • Same comment as for "Wikifunction". I do have a slight preference for "Wikifunctions" over "Wikifunction" though, since the latter only refers to a single function. Kinda like how Wikibooks is the name of the project, and wikibook would be a single book on Wikibooks. "FunctionWiki" and "FunctionsWiki" could work as names for the project too.

  • Agree that this works better in the plural. Pretty straightforward and clear, but not very catchy. Husky (talk) 09:31, 21 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • "wikifunc" or "funkywiki" for short. - Jmabel (talk) 23:22, 29 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • When I read "functions", first I thought to mathematical functions. After reading some information in this page I realized (a little bit) what this project is about. The term "function" has too many meanings... Because of these language ambiguity, I would oppose to any name where it is used "function". Instead I prefer names where correlation to Information Technology is more evident and not ambiguous, but other proposed names look to me less relevant than this... --Daniele Pugliesi (talk) 19:24, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • The name "functions" expresses the means of this project most obviously, I think. Also there is a proposed name "Wikifunction", but "function" should be plural. I thought that which is better, "Wikifunctions" or "Wikimedia Functions", and I found "Wikimedia Functions" confusing because it might be abbreviated as "WMF" that is same of the abbreviated name of "Wikimedia Foundation". --Atmark-chan <T/C> 17:03, 2 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • "Wikimedia Functions" sounds like the things that cashed-up wikimedians attended in Ibiza or Oslo pre-pandemic. Same with functions.wikimedia.org. WikiFunctions or FunctionsWiki work fine. In English, WikiFunctions reads as "functions for wikis" and FunctionsWiki as "wiki of functions", but not sure how the different variants come across in other languages. Is functions.wiki available? ... though I dislike breaking away from having everything under the wikimedia.org umbrella. Maybe func.wikimedia.org inspired by Jmabel above.
