Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Amis
|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Amis|
- 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||ami (SIL, Ethnologue)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Amis||Language name in English|
|Language name||Pangcah / 'Amis||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||Q35132 - 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||Wikipedia||"Wikipedia" in your language|
|Project namespace||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||"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:...||135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)|
|Default project timezone||Asia/Taipei||"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|
This test is doing particularly well considering its contents and page statistics. It's a shame it has only got one single (active) editor. Building a larger community surrounding it would be the number one task to ensure the continuity of the project as well as its approval. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 11:34, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
- Oppose as there was only one contributor to the test site, this contributor has not edited since 2017. Would need more contributors to take off as a project. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 14:18, 21 October 2019 (UTC)
There is no need to "support" or "oppose" the promotion of a test wiki into a standalone wiki (AKA a new subdomain) once the language has been verified as eligible. Use of those templates (or equivalents) invites uninformed users to start "voting" here as if it will make any difference. It won't. Of course, any evidence of attempts to make a test wiki look like it is meeting the criteria for final approval when it really isn't can be pointed out here — as can evidence that the test wiki is meeting the criteria but apparently being ignored (although in that case a comment left at Talk:Language committee would be more effective) — but those kinds of issues can be discussed in "normal" comments (like Ooswesthoesbes's comment above), without being formatted as !votes. - dcljr (talk) 01:08, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
