Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Hadauti

submitted verification final decision
Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).

The language committee needs to verify the language is eligible to be approved.

  • Check that the project does not already exist (see list).
  • Obtain an ISO 639 code
  • Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
  • Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.
  • 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 hoj (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Hadauti Language name in English
Language name हाड़ौती 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 Q33227 - 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.
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.

Project name विकिपीडिया "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace Wikipedia Hadauti usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Wikipedia Discussion "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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-hi.svg This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone IST (UTC+05:30) "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. It will include everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings. After creating the task, add a link to the comment.

Proposal edit

Harauti or Hadauti (Hadoti) is a Rajasthani language spoken by approximately four million people in the Hadoti region of southeastern Rajasthan, India. Its speakers are concentrated in the districts of Kota, Baran, Bundi and Jhalawar in Rajasthan, as well as in neighbouring areas of Madhya Pradesh. Hadauti language is a Rajasthani language of India, with a rich cultural heritage and literature. I propose a dedicated Wikimedia page to provide comprehensive information on the language's dialects, grammar, vocabulary, literature, and cultural practices. The page will offer resources for learning the language, discuss its history and influence on other dialects, and serve as a platform for Hadauti speakers and enthusiasts to collaborate. The proposed page will promote and preserve the cultural significance of Hadauti language Hadauti speakers can contribute to the Hadauti language page on Wikimedia by adding valuable information about the language, its dialects, grammar, vocabulary, literature, and culture. They can also improve existing articles, translate them into other languages, and use Wikimedia as a tool to learn more about their language and culture while collaborating with others to preserve and promote the language.

Discussion edit

  • Weak support valid code, large number of speakers, not a vanity project for some obscure dead/useless language. Needs more evidence of a robust community of native/fluent speakers though. Dronebogus (talk) 21:16, 5 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
