Hi there all. I am a retired user from the Old English Wikipedia, and I would like to propose the addition of a Old English Wikinews. There have been many complaints that Old English is not a real language, and while that might be the case, there has already been the allowance for the creation of the Old English Wikipedia, Old English Wiktionary, and a Old English Wikiquote. All three of these projects have been extremely successful, although none have been more successful than the Old English Wikipedia. If you would allow for the creation of the Old English Wikinews, you will allow for the collection of Old English wikis to grow and flourish, and that is exactly what I would like to see happen for the communities of the Old English projects. --2409:8902:9021:3DF1:7CD3:B88F:8018:75C1 05:08, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
A Wikinews is way more likely to be closed after opening than any other type of project, and even major languages have trouble keeping them up to date. There's virtually no hope that this would be successful in any way.--Prosfilaes (talk) 03:30, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
- And the Old English Wikiquote has been closed due to inactivity and the Old English Wikipedia has about 3,000 articles, making it the 210th largest Wikipedia. That's not terribly successful.--Prosfilaes (talk) 05:15, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
- Nope, just veto this, non of those ancient and/or historical languages are suitable for having news, and even Wikinews, @StevenJ81: I propose that we write this restriction to our LPP and adopt some AbuseFilters to technically hold up any future Wikinews requests about those cases. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:06, 28 September 2019 (UTC)
