Batten down the hatches! The long-rumoured official Puzzle Pirates wiki is coming!

But, we're having trouble with a name. The best we have so far is the YPPedia.

Submissions here! Please keep chat to a minimum.

Closing date is umm Weds at noon PST. Short competition! Prize to be determined, aside from the pride of having given the wiki its name!

Maybe I'm getting old and cantankerous, but why not just call it "YPP Wiki"?

It won't be just an encyclopedia, I expect: I'm thinking of tutorials and also a permanent place for the literature (stories and poems) of the YPP World.

Or if you want an olde-fashioned name:

Ye Pirates' Library (just 'the library' in speech).

It's one thing to have fancy names for the numerous shoppes in game, but just like the forums (which we call forums), this doesn't need anything special

This was the first thing to come to mind when I saw "YPPedia". It's a wiki, not an encyclopedia, though the most well known wiki designs to be an encyclopedia.

This section of the web site is the "Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates Forums" linked on the main page from the word "forum". I strongly favor the simple "Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates Wiki", linked from the word "wiki".

We have names for each forum within the "forums", because there has to be a way to differentiate. There will be only one wiki (at this site). Any "name" you choose, when used in conversaition, be followed with "...you know, the YPP wiki".

KISS baby!

I mostly agree with the last few posters but I do think it would be cool to have a SIMPLE but more piratey name to use than wiki. Such as:

Ye Pirate's Almanac

or

Ye Pirates' Library

as suggested previously.

Edit: Oh and....The Big Book of Pirate Conspiracies because it makes me giggle.

I'm still for the simple "YPP Wiki", but if a "name" must be chosen:

"The most important instrument was a navigators' diary, later called a rutter." (wikipedia)
