    A name for a wiki web site.

    Hello,

    I am struggling to come up with a name for Wiki I want to start.

    I want to start a wiki convering Internet Services, initially I want to cover ISP - that provider access locally or to overseas, and later expand to data centers and maybe some day web hosting companies.

    I am planning to invite the ISPs and everyone else who wants to help to help us compile a list of all ISPs, carriers and all services so that everyone is not always stuck talking about the same 4 ISPs.

    What do I call it?

    HK ISP Wiki? Get Internet Wiki?
    HK Internet Wiki?

    As I had no idea what a WIKI was , I found the definition as " A wiki (pronounced , or ; see Pronunciation below) is a web application that allows users to add content, as on an Internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content. Wiki also refers to the collaborative software used to create such a website (see Wiki software). "

    So for the police - Nicki wiki
    For the ice cream industry - Licki wiki
    For Republicans of the Nixon era - Tricki Wiki
    Porn site - Sticki wiki
    Lotto site - Picki wiki
    Disney - Mickey wiki
    Boat builders - Kon-tiki wiki
    Lovers of the game tiddly winks - Flicki wiki
    Gun lovers - Ballistiki
    Timepiece site - Ticki wiki
    Alternate timepiece site - Tocki wiki
    Health and Wellness - Sicki wiki

    So the only thing that might fit for an internet thing might be - Clicki Wiki or just plain Clicki

    I'm sorry Maren I wanted to be serious but I saw the way this thread was going and couldn't resist. Slow day !

    Boris, it is fine, I keep on coming up with siki pikiwiki and trikki, to describe some of the ISP sales tactics.

    service harbor of internet and telecommuncations wiki - you guys figure that one.

    The best I've come up with which is a bit lame is hk internet wiki/HK internet services wiki and internet.hk.com as a URL?

    HK Internet Access & Colocation Wiki, a bit limiting at the same time.

    You said " The best I've come up with which is a bit lame is hk internet wiki/HK internet services wiki and internet.hk.com as a URL? "

    If you want to keep HK in the title why not something to keep it simple like HK.wikinet or HK.Wikisp ?

    Less written more said.

    It would be best if it has some kind of meaning full name that it makes sense. hkwikinet does not really say much about what it does. If I am going to give it a non comprehensible I might aswel pick something fun.
    The IP Oracle, Spanki NET or what ever.
