Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Emoji

main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Emoji
submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

A committee member provided the following comment:

It is not a language, no ISO 639-1 or 639-3 code has been assigned, and it is difficult to think that it is a valid request. --Sotiale (talk) 11:11, 15 May 2021 (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
Proposal
Language code  (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Emoji Language name in English
Language name U+1F610 U+1F4AC 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 Q1049294 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = emoji
  • native label (P1705) = 絵文字
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = notation / ideogram
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) =
  • 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.
Directionality LTR Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name U+1F4D6 U+270F U+FE0F "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 admin 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:... This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Tokyo "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)


ProposalEdit

This would be a Wikipedia that anyone could understand (not that it would be easy at first) and that anyone could edit. This Wikipedia might also make the first widespread standardized use of emoji (however that is not one of the reasons I am proposing this). Also the only reason the name of the language is in Unicode is because apparently you can't use emojis on Wikimedia. --2007Gtbot (talk) 14:05, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • No. It's not a language. It's not LTR; it takes the directionality of its embedded text. Communicating any complex sentence is impossible without grammar.--Prosfilaes (talk) 06:49, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
    • I thought you embedded LTR unless otherwise needed. --67.81.132.165 18:52, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Oppose Per Prosfilaes, no code no project, also not a language entirely, we require language editions. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:35, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
