I'm going for Noise Wiki since who is eligible for the status of researcher will likely be factionally contested, thus this is a bad name for a wiki

Um, though, aren't we trying to encourage stuff to be refined to the point where SOMEONE considers it "research"? Wikipedia articles are usually not good enough to be in an encyclopedia, but it's at least possible to say "that's not good enough to be here". One could ditch things from a Research Wiki for "not being researched", it's damn hard to ditch things that are just "noise". That name properly belongs to Development Wiki where everything is truly noise until it becomes code.
