I've seen people say that they would support a Classical Greek Wikipedia, yet not an Attic Greek one, so I've now proposed a Classical Greek Wikipedia.
at si Atticam tollimus, quanta est Graeca classica?
- Technical Question Are we going to use accents in this wiki? Yes, I know they are considered part of the spelling, but many Greek syllabi (such as that of Oxford University) do not require knowledge of accents, except when they are essential to the meaning of the word. If accents are not required (or if we can have someone dedicated to putting them in), Support LeighvsOptimvsMaximvs

- Support Maybe on the long term robots can help with the accents in the case of words that can only be accented in one way. I don't think it's a big issue, but I would prefer to see the accents in the text. Marcos 23:11, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

- Support Patroklis If latin’s got its own wikipedia, I think it’s not normal at all that classical Greek hasn’t. Let’s change this! 19:10, 23 October 2006

- Support--Anglo23 I intend to start an Ancient Greek weblog that will show Wikipedia that an Ancient Greek Wiki is viable. If interested contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance
- Support -- [Reskam] If there are Latin and Old English Wikipedias, there is no reason for there not to be a Classical Greek one. Historically, Classical Greek composition has seldom been used as a pedagogical tool. Having a Classical Greek Wikipedia will help remedy this.
- Support -- It would be a limited Wiki, but why is it rejected?
- Support -- It is a classical language, one of the two most important ones, therefore a must. - From Brazil.
- Support -- Classical Greek is still living, including on the Internet (see http://www.akwn.net or http://www.idyllion.eu/cgr/wer_wir_sind.html), more than Old English. Many people are waiting for a Classical Greek Wikipedia.
