Wikintegrationism is the philosophy that the wikis in the wikisphere should become more closely interconnected, sharing data and linking to one another more efficiently. Various proposals, such as interwiki watchlists and reasonably efficient interwiki transclusion, have been raised in support of this idea. An interwiki integration project was launched at MediaWiki.org, but was deleted and was userfied.

The logical conclusion of wikintegrationism is that ultimately, the wikisphere should become so interconnected as to almost seem like one big wiki. Wikintegrationism tends to oppose needless proliferation of wikis, favoring instead monolothic entities such as Wikipedia that take advantage of economies of scale. Some wikintegrationists would like to see all Wikimedia Foundation projects unified into one big wiki with wikispaces and langspaces in addition to the existing namespaces, e.g.:

Wikispace Langspace Namespace Page title Result
Wikipedia English Portal Geography wikipedia:en:Portal:Geography
Wiktionary French Main Fromage wiktionary:fr:fromage
... ... ... ...

Another possibility is to merge other projects into Wikipedia, e.g. as follows:

Wikimedia project Wikipedia page title
Wikisource Text of $1
Wiktionary Definition of $1
Wikiquote Quotations related to $1
