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:

This language is not eligible, per the Language proposal policy, specifically point 4 under "Requisites for eligibility". Jon Harald Søby (talk) 09:17, 22 April 2016 (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
Language code xhc (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Hunnic Language name in English
Language name Աշկատա Լէզ (Askatan Lez) 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 Q35959 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Hunnic
  • native label (P1705) =
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, ancient language / Altaic
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) =
  • writing system (P282) = Q4502373
  • 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 no indication 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 Ւօկօպեդյօ (Wykypedjy) "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Ւօկօպեդյօ Բօշում (Wykypedjy Bysum) "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads no 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 Continent/City "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)

I think Hunnic should be a Wikipedia since Hunnic is virtually unknown as a language around the world. If you think Hunnic doesn't have enough words then check out this: --HorseSnack (talk) 12:14, 30 January 2016 (UTC)


  • Oppose: extinct language with no speakers. Per policy, only wikisource can have extinct languages. --Zerabat (discusión) 15:10, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
