Hi. I think that we should change our name. Brickipedia sounds kinda clunky, why not go with "Legowikia" instead? Other ideas would be welcomed :) Ajraddatz (Talk) 23:43, February 8, 2013 (UTC)

LEGOpedia/Legopedia

LEGOWikia? BrickiWikia? Sounds good to me. -Cligra Join the redlink war!


Sannse telling us what to do

Ajraddatz, if you don't like the name Brickipedia, the discussion should be about what you are going to call the new wiki if you go ahead with the fork. And that conversation should be on the move discussion pages, or on the new wiki itself. Unless you are being disingenuous of course, and really mean that you want to try and change the name here so that you can use Brickipedia on the fork without it duplicating this wiki's name.... -- sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 23:53, February 8, 2013 (UTC)

Honestly, I wasn't trying to be "disingenuous", but I don't think both sites should have the same name. When the Fallout Wiki left, they changed the name of the Wikia site. Ultimately, it doesn't affect search results, but when people are looking for Brickipedia then they should be directed to the place where the community associated to that name is.

Actually, on a completely neutral note changing the wiki's name to something with "LEGO" in it would probably aid the search results, since Google would associate searches for "lego blah blah blah" more easily with this site. Also, your post is off-topic and quite honestly undesired, so if you have issues with stuff that I do take it to skype/email and stop filling up our local discussions with it. Ajraddatz (Talk) 23:58, February 8, 2013 (UTC)
Then perhaps that is something you should consider when choosing the name for your fork.
My comment was most certainly not off-topic, I'm talking about your idea to change the name of this wiki (and your motivations for it)
On your comparison with Fallout, each situation is different, and needs careful thought and discussion. To give a counter example, Uncyclopedia has not and will not be changing name. So let's put this on hold for now and have the discussion (if we need to) once things have settled down again and the new/remaining community here have had a chance to consider what they want. -- sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 00:06, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
How about no. Ajraddatz (Talk) 00:08, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
  • From what I see, I don't see that there will be much of a community here once we leave, and seing as we are the current community here, I see no reason why we can't rename. I quite like 'Brickiwikia'. - nxt
There may or may not be much of one if you leave, but there will be one in the future. And, on their behalf, I can't allow you to potentially harm this wiki in order to benefit another (which I assume you plan to call "Brickipedia", despite what Aj said above about wanting to use something less "clunky") -- sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 00:27, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
lol. What "harm"? I didn't spend years on this site to want it completely ruined, nor am I going to leave completely after the move. If you really want to continue to stop the legitimate workings of this community, I really can't stop you. But I'm sure this topic will come up again. Ajraddatz (Talk) 00:45, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
Since this forum has just devolved from a community discussion to Sannse telling us what to do, I might as well take the time to point out that a name refers to a group of people. When people left England to found a colony in the new world, they didn't call it England. They called it New England :D. But I'm sure that if everyone left England, they might have continued to consider themselves "English". But IDK. Ajraddatz (Talk) 00:53, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
Our path of action is clear now: we must call ourselves "New Brickipedia"! :P -- BrickfilmNut Productions!
Heck, New South Wales is technically south of Wales, ad it is new! :D --Czech 01:05, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
  • Honestly, all I want is "Legopedia" or "Brickipedia". --Czech 01:05, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
