Future ideas

This can be a running list of ideas previously proposed. When we need a new list to choose, we can use this as a starting point. Usual criterial:

  • No living persons
  • No copyrighted material
  • Ideally an easily referenced list we can copy to wikitech, and cycle through sequentially.


codfw naming discussion

This discussion is now closed.
Now closed, using w:List of proper names of stars with some disclaimers, see page. --RobH (talk) 16:42, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

So what are we going to standardize our naming miscellaneous servers as on the new datacenter site? --RobH (talk) 22:32, 8 November 2013 (UTC)


  • +1 from: Giuseppe, Rob, Otto
  • Maybe use rotating alphabetical in this list? A, B, C...A',B',C'. That way we don't have all names starting with A.
  • e.g. Acamar, Baham, Canopus, ...Achernar, Beid, Capella, ...
  • Mountain peaks (lots of names so we can cull down to a list of names not like exeminewisgdklgh :-P) -- ariel (talk) 07:21, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
