In my opinion the Fijian Wikipedia should be close. It has only stubs , and the Main Page. very few activity. send to incubator.

Support ClosureEdit

Oppose ClosureEdit

  1. Oppose - stubs is good enough and it has a lot of articles..--Cometstyles 05:28, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
  2. Oppose Oliver Stegen 13:10, 30 July 2008 (UTC) This is the major language on Fiji with widespread usage in broadcasting and in the press. I don't think there is lack of interest but rather a lack of awareness. Just because the nation of Fiji is a small country doesn't mean it should be neglected. Finally, since when can an anonymous user (who showed up only on a single day, viz July 18) propose the closure of all kinds of small language wikipedias? He should be blocked and his proposals deleted!
  3. Oppose Closing would harm the project. Keeping it up and available does not hurt anyone. Drumming up more activity would be a good idea though. --Purodha Blissenbach 17:36, 4 September 2008 (UTC)


  1. Neutral. It does seem that almost all activity is updating interwiki links - there don't seem to be any active participants in the project. Whilst I would like to see a thriving Fijian project, there seems to be little interest from speakers of the language. That said, closing the project seems rather a major step given that there isn't much of a problem with vandalism and interest in it may pick up in future. WJBscribe (talk) 03:29, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
