I Need a Name!

Posted 24 July 2019 - 12:54 PM

I'm working on an open source wiki project. The idea is to be an easy to read, cleaner and more structured version of Wikipedia, with much of the same rich features. However, the intent is to be lighter on footprint. My main use for this software will be to document, categorize and revisit/revision those pages for various game ideas, story plot lines, items and characters, etc.

I need a name for this! It's going to be an open source platform people can use for the same reason I am; a simple, modern alternative to MediaWiki and it's kin. I'm just stuck on a name... my company's name is Surf, so maybe something like that? I've thought of...

Honestly none of those really work.. I mean it's identical to form and function of MediaWiki with, what I assume, is less scale-ability. I mean the 95mb install wasn't _that_ bad.

Maybe something simple like 'Idea Drawer'.

That's fair. Less scale-ability? I suppose so. In MediaWiki's case what's the scale aside from potentially millions of pages? Aside, I think you're right. Idk if Idea Drawer captures the concept, though. Layout and concept more closely resembles the Fandom style of user-operated wikis, though.
