FindingANewNameSurvey

Timeline: The survey finished.

The survey results are available now.

Thanks goes to all for participating!


Purpose: This survey is used as a renewed effort to come up with a shiny new name for what we call nextwiki for now. The first attempt ended with all names being rejected, burned or simply out for one or the other reason. This survey will be (a) "food for thought" for the copywriter to suggest a new list of names and (b) as a standardized set of constraints all candidate names have to adhere to.

Please, take this very seriously. We will have to live with the name for years. Note that this is no survey for a concrete project name. Moreover, it is a set of criteria as a guidance and clarification what this is all about. That's we had to learn from the previous attempt.

Afterwards, a new list of names will be proposed and voted on separately. This list may contain any names you proposed on FindingANewNameLockedDiscussion in the meantime, any reanimated names from the previous round and the names Stephan, the copywriter, might propose as a second correction round. This second round is covered by the current budget. Not so any further work for him. That's were his services will end or cost extra.

Background: Read more about all this at FindingANewName.
