submitted verification final decision
  This proposal has been closed as part of a reform of the request process.
This request has not necessarily been rejected, and new requests are welcome. This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 22:02:13, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Comments:
    • Oppose. As with most 'dead' languages I oppose this because this would not be anyone's preferred language to receive information in. - 22:54, 25 September 2005 (UTC)
    • Oppose The Wikipedia article is refered to Denglish not to Amerikanischdeustch, without an approximated number of speakers, is more doubtful.--Taichi - (^_^) 19:22, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
    • Oppose I read the language's description and it sounds to me as if you want to create a German wikipedia but with purposly included wrong grammar and wrong spelling --de:Buckeye 01:32, 22 January 2006 (UTC)
    • Support. It could be a good way to make that language/dialect more known. --Michał P. 16:40, 17 January 2006 (UTC) - changed my mind Michał P. 20:18, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
    • Oppose Sorry, but this is total nonsense. Arbeo 10:48, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
    • Oppose. This IS nonesense. 15:46, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Oppose - for what? Kenwilliams 20:17, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Oppose. If this were an established creole, maybe, but it's just a makeshift pidgin with no formal grammar rules and no widespread usage. —Psychonaut 01:02, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
    • Oppose. If you want to contribute to a Wikipedia in German, learn grammatically correct standard High German, not a cant version of it. Keeno 14:06, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
