Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Aklanon
|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Aklanon|
- The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
- The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
- The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:
|What||Value||Example / Explanation|
|Language code||akl (SIL, Ethnologue)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Aklanon||Language name in English|
|Language name||Akeanon||Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...|
|Language Wikidata item||Q8773 - item has currently the following values:
||Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.|
|Project name||Wikipidea||"Wikipedia" in your language|
|Project namespace||Wikipidea||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||Hambalan it Wikipidea||"Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)|
|Enable uploads||no||Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.|
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin").
Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
|Project logo||File:Wikipedia svg logo-akl.png||135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)|
|Default project timezone||PHT (UTC+8)||"Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)|
|Additional namespaces||For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"|
|Additional settings||Anything else that should be set|
Aklanon is a language of the Philippines spoken by around 500,000 speakers worldwide. It is the primary language of the province of Aklan on the island of Panay in the Western Visayas--23prootie 10:09, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
Arguments in favourEdit
- Support - Aklanon is distinct from the other languages of Western Visayas (e.g., Hiligaynon and Kinaray-a) and deserves a Wikipedia of its own. I would however suggest that native speakers be recruited for this project so as to avoid the fate that happened to the proposals for the other languages of Western Visayas namely Hiligaynon, Kinaray-a and Capiznon. Wikipedias for these three languages have been proposed but they have not been created because either the interface has not been completely translated or the initial contributors became inactive. --Harvzsf (talk) 05:59, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
