submitted verification final decision
Applications-system.svg This language has been verified as eligible.
The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.

Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approvaland will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert.

If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.

A committee member provided the following comment:

Please contribute to the test. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:01, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • 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 (SILEthnologue) 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:
  • en label = Amis
  • native label (P1705) = Amis
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language, vulnerable language / East Formosan languages
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = ami
  • writing system (P282) =
  • number of speakers (P1098) =
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.
You can optionally list your user name if you are an active contributor to the test wiki. Add "N" next to your name if you are a native speaker of this language.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
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.
Optional settings
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
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

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)
