Hi all,

I would like to set up a wiki for the new organisation that will be
for the benefit of all UK hackerspaces. I propose replacing the
current http://hackspace.org.uk/ website with this entirely.

At the moment our wiki is hosted at http://wiki.hackspace.org.uk/ which
is now misleading as the wiki is just for the London Hackspace. I
propose either:
a) moving this to http://wiki.london.hackspace.org.uk/
b) moving this to http://london.hackspace.org.uk/[w|wiki]/
In either instance http://wiki.hackspace.org.uk/ would become a
permanent redirect to the new location.

If we choose option a it might be cool to enable action paths [1] so
that the URLs are nicer and does not contain "wiki" nice.

What does everyone think?

Thanks,
Robert

Agreed, my vote is for a.

It always surprises me that [a] isn't the case, so yes please :-)

+ 1 for this (boring I know!)

My thinking here is
  • Redirect to new wiki.london... is good in short term
  • Once the UK wide wiki is in place it might be better to take you to a landing page asking whether you want london, uk (or maybe other place)

Any naming convention that is sensible (without getting into semantics of name spaces), which is fit for purpose will have my support :-)
