- 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||(SIL, Glottolog)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Surabayan||Language name in English|
|Language name||Basa Surabayaan||Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...|

Officially this language is a Javanese dialect, but since there are so many word entries and grammar that are different with standard Javanese Ngaka language (i.e. you can't find a, it is considered to place this language into the different Wikipedia source. This language (or maybe it is better to call it: sub-language) is spoken natively in the north coast area of East Java, Indonesia, including several regions: Surabaya, Mojokerto, Gresik, Sidoarjo, northern Pasuruan, Lamongan, Jombang, and southern part of Bangkalan, Madura Island. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Arif doudo (talk)
Proposal (from merged request)Edit
Surabayan Javanese (Suroboyoan) is the local language of Surabaya, Indonesia's second biggest city, and its surroundings. It is traditionally considered a very strong dialect of Javanese, said to be very rude, but it so different from Standard Javanese that the two varieties of the same language are sometimes mutually unintelligible by the younger generation.
Suroboyoan is used in everyday conversation, spoken at home and in the streets, on the market, among friends and family members, and also very frequently written in SMS and chats on the social media. As there is already a Banyumas Javanese edition for Wikipedia, it is just obvious that Suroboyoan should also have a Wikipedia.
- Support Should better be written to the Surabayan language because it is the second biggest city in Indonesia and the clean city in Indonesia. --Semuel Tahun (talk) 11:44, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
- It's not a language, it's a Javanese dialect. My hometown have a dialect, too. Balai Bahasa Yogyakarta (a local government agency for language) has published Pedoman Umum Ejaan Bahasa Jawa (2011) (English: General Guideline for Javanese Spelling). Better to use the standard Javanese that has been published by local government agency, just like we use standard Indonesian (Pedoman Umum Ejaan Bahasa Indonesia) (English: General Guideline for Indonesian Spelling) in idwiki.

- Oppose Per above, no code no project. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:15, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
- Oppose No ISO code. --188.8.131.52 08:36, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
- Oppose ditto —DIV (184.108.40.206 07:39, 11 February 2019 (UTC))
- Oppose I would assume that many editors on Javanese Wikipedia are from Surabaya, Java's most populous city. Proposing a Basa Surabayaan Wikipedia would be analogous to the Appalachian English Wikipedia proposal. Most speakers would naturally gravitate to the existing version in the prestige dialect that has a thriving ecosystem. Sabon Harshe (talk) 17:12, 24 December 2019 (UTC)
