Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Nengone
|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Nengone|
- 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||nen (SIL, Ethnologue)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Nengone||Language name in English|
|Language name||kix||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||Q3338052 - 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||Wikipedia||"Wikipedia" in your language|
|Project namespace||Wikipedia||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||Wikipedia talk||"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||135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)|
|Default project timezone||PST||"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|
Hello! I(SeniorStar) would sincerely like to request a wikipedia with new language called Nepalese English. I am sure several wikipedians with native understanding of Nepali language will actively contribut to this wiki. Regards--SeniorStar Talk 12:57, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
- Is this valid? iso639-3:nen told me: "Nengone". --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 02:08, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
- @Liuxinyu970226: You mean nen.wikipedia.org is already reserved for another language ? But I think nen is more suited for Nepalese English than Nengone. Now what should I do for proposal ofNepalese English wiki then??SeniorStar Talk 05:52, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
- The Wikipedia codes are w:ISO 639-3 codes; once one has been assigned, it will never be changed. You'd need to get SIL (which manages ISO 639-3) to give it a separate language code. I see no evidence that Nepalese English is distinct enough from English that it should be treated as a separate language.--Prosfilaes (talk) 00:08, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
- Close. If the desire here is for a project in Nepalese English, that was just rejected. As far as I can tell, there is not a true request for a Wikipedia Nengone; there is certainly no test project at Incubator. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:56, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
- The history says "(CasetteTapeMaster moved page Requests for new languages/Nepalese English Wikipedia to Requests for new languages/Nengone Wikipedia: nen= nengone)". Ill-advisedly, I'd say.--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:59, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
- That user is an LTA indeffed at Incubator. Since that user is not the only editor who has come to this page, I do not feel I should delete this request outright. So I'm trying to establish that there is not a real request here, so that Langcom will close. StevenJ81 (talk) 23:21, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
