For Wikis T1, T2, T1<>T2 with pages t1 in T1, t2 in T2, we define the TwinPage
relation as follows:
t1 Twinpages t2 :<=> WikiPageName(t1)=WikiPageName(t2) and BiLinked(t1,t2)
Two different Wikis are called TwinWikis iff their pages are mapped one-to-one and each mapped pair of pages are namesakes (i.e. share the same WikiPageName).
Bill has his own network of twin pages with an embeddable widget. See:
Due to the name-sharing, TwinPages don't need to repeat the name of their complementary twin ("brother/sister page"). Instead of this, they only need to use their WikiPrefix or WikiLogo? in a uniform way.
This is an excellent way to promote wikis by continuous name-recognition.
The metapher "twin" implies symmetry in the sense, that "A is a twin to B" is equivalent to "B is a twin to A".
The terms FriendPage, FriendWikis, PartnerPage?, PartnerWikis? are also worth to be considered to be formalized/implemented/used -- FridemarPache
The FriendPage relation is interesting (as a metaphor and a source of inspiration), because it is
- reflexive (each one is their own friend (hopefully))
- transitive ("your friends are my friends" useful at least as mnemonic)
A couple of additional points...
- I put your contribution into the redefinition of TwinPage. Thank you.
- As currently I found no WikiFarm yet, that supports the automatic creation of TwinPages or even TwinWikis/TwinBalls, I am going to use the following workaround in my SlideWiki experiment: For each slide page with name XYZ, I take as TwinPage a page with name XYZ_ . In this way any wiki W can be made a partition of two wikis W1, W2, where all the pagenames in W2 have trailing underscores, whereas all the pages in W1 don't have one. The disadvantage of a manual made TwinWiki pair (W1,W2) is, that it may be another threshold for newcomers and that it takes a bit more care. But I think, that the advantages for a partitioned SlideWiki outweigh by far this little nuisance.
Now we need a decent term for the Wikis who have TwinPages in common. "Sister" A cannot have a T1, wheras "Sister" B has a T2, where T1,T2 are twin pages. Therefore the autor suggests the term TwinWiki. -- FridemarPache
New notation:' After TwinPages we insert the pseudo-icon <=>.
If this usage is established, we can omit the pragma "TwinPages", because the pseudo-icon '<=>' appears to be
sufficiently selfexplaining, if there are enough use-cases.
