Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Sinhala Wiktionary

The result of the following proposal for closing a WMF project is to KEEP the project. Please, do not modify this page.


I propose to close this discussion in seven days from now, on May 11VasilievVV 20:07, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

The Sinhala Wiktionary should be closed due to lack of content and activity (apart from spambots). I have no idea what wikt:si:වචනය is supposed to be (it's a one-word article), but if it's legitimate it should be moved to the Incubator. Apart from that there's just the Main Page and spambot entries. -- Prince Kassad 16:19, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Support closingEdit

  • Support closure: no content (wikt:si:Special:Allpages) and no useful activity (wikt:si:Special:Recentchanges). --A. B. (talk) 02:45, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Support No activity. Yann 12:10, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Support, no decent activity or content. Sr13 05:18, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Support Does not appear to have any content, aside from a main page, a few redirects to it and some one word pages without links or interwikis. Localisation is very poor with 11%. Siebrand 16:35, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Oppose closingEdit

  • Oppose - Some people have started working on it after the notification is given. I'll try to contact University of Colombo to find out if they are interested in joining the work. --Lee 15:19, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Oppose. Never බිඟුවා
  • Oppose. The project exists as a good working template, ready to be used at any time. --Anatoli 03:07, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I think they have minimum, low activity is no reson for closure, just can wish them some more users. --Vhorvat 13:30, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

General commentsEdit

The Sinhala Wiktionary should be properly warned before anything like a closure proposal should be even considered. Nothing like that has been done up to this moment. --0 º 18:02, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

The University of Columbo (the city, not the detective) does a lot of content addition to Sinhala Wikipedia. I'd like to suggest we contact them and see if the students would like to contribute to the Sinhala Wiktionary first. Kylu 20:00, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
wikt:si:special:Recentchanges - This project has contributors now. Thanks for waiting. :) Kylu 17:13, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Currently adding roughly two words a month. Could be moved to the incubator, but localization of the interface is well done, so it is also fine where it is. SJ+ 23:56, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Sinhala Wikitionery content Development projectEdit

Dear All, We are going to start this project as well as Sinhala Wikipedia very soon. I kindly request not to close Sinhala Wiktionery. I will write about Sinhala Wikitionery and Sinhala Wikipedia content development project in detail very soon. Thank you very much --Asiri wiki 09:18, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
