Metawiki or Mewiki / Tame ?

I suggest use Metawiki, Metawik, Mewiki or Tame (meTAwikiMEdia) for the project.--BoldLuis (talk) 10:07, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

What do you mean? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 10:09, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
Use an unique (proper) name for the project and avoid the employ of hyphens. --BoldLuis (talk) 10:12, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
For what purpose? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 10:14, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
To have an unique (proper) name, as Wikipedia. You do not need to use "Wikimedia Wikipedia". Only say "Wikipedia". Insted of this, there is a lot "metawikis". So you need to say two words to talk about the project "Wikimedia Meta-Wiki" and use a hypen ( - ). It is shorter "Tame" or "Mewiki". We can say: "you / we are in Tame" or "you are in Mewiki". --BoldLuis (talk) 10:18, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
How is "Meta-Wiki" not unique? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 10:20, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
It is not. There are other wikis that have metawikis / meta-wikis to talk about the project. Because of this, you use "Mediawiki Meta-Wiki" instead, including an annoying hyphen (originally, the name was Meta-Wikipedia). --BoldLuis (talk) 10:22, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
Why is a hyphen annoying? Could you also point to specific wikis which are known under the name "Meta-Wiki"? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 10:33, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
It also happened in e-mail and email [1] and other words. Other metawikis: [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], these last ones about metawiki capabilities and creating a page with pieces of another wiki pages, [7] and so on. --BoldLuis (talk) 11:09, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

Missing Special:MyLanguage

The row <li>[[Wikimedia projects|<translate><!--T:2--> Projects</translate>]]<br> should use Special:MyLanguage, ergo <li>[[Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia projects|<translate><!--T:2--> Projects</translate>]]<br> --Sabelรถga (talk) 10:58, 18 August 2021 (UTC)
