Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Garhwali
|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Garhwali|
- 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||gbm (SIL, Ethnologue)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Garhwali||Language name in English|
|Language name||गढ़वळी||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||Q33459 - 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||विकीपेडिआ||"Wikipedia" in your language|
|Project namespace||विकीपेडिआ||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||विकीपेडिआ छु़ंइ||"Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)|
|Enable uploads||yes||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:Garhwali Wikipedia.png||135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)|
|Default project timezone||Asia/Kolkata||"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|
I'm proposing for the language Garhwali because of It is a language like English or Hindi. And Garhwali language people will have a access to articles in their language if the language get its own Wikipedia. Most of the people in the world search wikipedia rather than any other contemporary encyclopedias. It is so sad that Garhwali is shrinking rapidly due to no official status in India & categorize unsafe by UNESCO. The Garhwali language wikipedia will help the Garhwali people to be interacted with their language & to language itself to be preserved. --~~~~
