As you are incubating articles by newbies and only indirectly incubating the newbies it might be an idea to rename this, especially if the only newbies it involves are the ones who start by creating articles. "Newbies' article incubator" would be OK. WereSpielChequers 14:24, 3 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

Oh .. selection of the naming - sometimes quite a difficult question. Maybe "training Incubator"? In ruWP we call it simply "Incubator". I need some time to think about it. Samal2010 19:07, 5 April 2011 (UTC)Reply
I generally prefer names that are self explanatory. But failing that they need to be short and not misleading. Incubator is perfectly OK, the name itself doesn't restrict it to articles by newbies, but that could be done by the introduction to the page. "Incubator for new articles by new editors" would be a fully descriptive name, but in English at least is too long. WereSpielChequers 10:29, 6 April 2011 (UTC)Reply
I generally prefer names that are self explanatory. Yes, me too. To incubate an article only two items are necessary: "non-indexed dedicated space + enough time". In our Incubator we focus more on beginners teaching. An article is the result of the learning process, "graduate work". Perhaps you could suggest how to better reflect primary focus of our Incubator in the title? --Samal2010 20:37, 13 April 2011 (UTC)Reply


The track Wiki Culture and the Community could be added also (if so, add the category also). ~ Seb35 [^_^] 13:03, 7 May 2011 (UTC)Reply
