Change project name at Asturian Wikipedia from "Uiquipedia" to "Wikipedia"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hi, I am bureaucrat from Asturian Wikipedia and administrator from Asturian Wiktionary. Last year we voted for changing "Uiquipedia" and "Uiccionariu" to "Wikipedia" and "Wikcionariu", to preserve the original "wiki" name, and only adapting to the local language the second part of the word (-pedia, -cionariu). Votations are here: https://ast.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Uiquipedia:Votaciones&section=13#Cambiu_de_nome_de_los_proyectos_wiki_n.27asturianu (it is the votation for both names together).
Could you please change the official names to "Wikipedia" and "Wikcionariu"? Do we need to change something in our projects code (common.css, common.js, etc.)?
Please, sorry if it is not the correct place for this.
Kind regards!

Wiktionary will need to discuss this separately...

Right, please open a separate discussion at Wiktionary and file a separate task for that.

Glaisher renamed this task from Changing name of the project Uiquipedia and Uiccionariu (asturian editions) to Changing name of the project Uiquipedia to Wikipedia (Asturian editions).Mar 30 2015, 5:19 AM

OK, then. I'll open another issue for Wiktionary (then we must vote again). Thanks in advance!

Should "Uiquipedia" project namespace (along with the associated talk namespace) be renamed as well?

Yes, please. This was and old ortographic/phonetic error, like when we changed the "imaxen" namespace for the correct form "imaxe" several years ago. We'll change all namespace references in the project for the new one with the aid of a bot.

Change 201897 had a related patch set uploaded (by Glaisher):
Change project name to 'Wikipedia' at astwiki

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/201897

I've added namespace aliases in the patch so that the previous namespaces will continue to link to the new namespaces.

It was noted that the linked discussion at astwiki is for changing the project name of both projects. Since it's not an explicit discussion, it'd be better if you start another separate discussion at astwiki for changing astwiki's configuration.

OK, I'll start another separate discussion at ast.wikipedia. Thanks for the advice.
