94. Why do WikiMaster and WOK call the Wikipedia articles wikis?
The Wikipedia articles in WikiMaster is called Wikipedia articles, articles, tags (when adding them to a question of relevance) or wikis.
"Why do you call the articles wikis when wiki is a word used broadly as for WikiData, Wikipedia, WikiCommons etc and not an article?"
We argue that the Wikipedia is the de facto Wiki everybody use and refer to so even if there are many Wiki in sense "encyclopedias" or "collection of Words" or "subject" in sense much single information gathered as a plural: In our context: A wiki is therefore a short description of a Wikipedia article and this makes sense to refer to rather than tag or article. We see no problem in using wiki as a term for a Wikipedia article since it is common practice and we think over time it will work fine for many others even if not practised among the core Wikimedians.
We call the photos, illustrations and drawings "images" as they collectively is uploaded from authors of Wikimedia Commons library.
For a similar reason the Founder of WOK called a digital course online e-course in Sweden (e-kurs) at the time no one else used it in the mid ninteens until it became practice for obvious reasons. Long words often used is often shorten when language develops. We at WOK think wiki is a singular word for a Wikipedia Article and will keep using this within the WOK ecosystem. But we refer to wikis as "tags" just as often. Its not the same to abandon "articles" in Wikipedia articles as it would be to abandon cream in Ice Cream.
