The following discussion is closed.

Closed, as new policy is in place ("all current proposals will be made invalid").

Despite being created in 2006 this wiki has barely a mainpage, is subject to spam attacks, has but twelve content pages and one bureaucrat/administrator and lots of useless userpages. :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 04:07, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

  1. Strongly oppose... --Triguna 11:36, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
  2. Strongly oppose... I came to know about it just now through kannada email groups. Many people will take notice of this and start participating. However small the content, it will provide a starting point for the people who will get interested in it in future. If you close it now, then a new person will have to learn all the technicalities to start it again. --Skbhat 10:17, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

  13. Oppose. No need to close this project. 50+ million people speak this language, one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. So what if it's not too active? Is it actively harming the WMF? Spam will be quickly cleaned up by our trusty SWMT team. Our goal should be to expand and cultivate our multilingual knowledge base, not deprive people the opportunity to contribute to it in their native language.
