  This proposal has been closed as part of a reform of the request process.
This request has not necessarily been rejected, and new requests are welcome. This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 01:03:21, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

    • Please, stop mass requesting languages just because you have read about them. Arbeo 13:47, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)
      • Agreed for this one: even the Wikipedias for most of the major Native American languages, created in the early days of the project, are as yet inactive, unfortunately. Let us please try to animate those first. Caesarion 19:55, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

    • Oppose as long as not requested by native speakers (according to WP article, there's only about 2000 of them - so no use talking about it as long as 'they' don't want to start a Wikipedia in their language). --ARBE0 13:58, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
