Proposal summary
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.
  • Notes/comments:
    • listed in en:ISO 639-1
    • An en:extinct language.
    • Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius wrote some books in this language.
    • ISO 639 code "cu" contain also en:Church Slavonic language, a en:liturgical language.
    • Script issues, Cyrillic vs Glagolitic
      • Why an issues, the two script (and the two language) would be allowed, isn't it ? (9 feb 2005)
      • If you disallow more than one script, subomains would be cu-Glag, cu-Cyrs, cu-Cyrl. (16 Mar 2005)
      • This Wikipedia should be Cyrillic, I think. (16 July 2005)
      • We can have each article written twice: in Glagolitic and Cyrillic script (e.g. in Gothic Wikipedia there are pages written using Gothic alphabet and their Latin transliterations), with redirects of these 2 variants to each other... But it would be perfect to do as the Chinese Wikipedians did: they have options allowing to display both traditional and simplified hieroglyphs. -- Alexander Gerashchenko 08:27, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
    • This idea is quite less moribund than the Slovio Wikipedia and I am sure you can find more supporters for it. If you want Glagolitic script, then write a converting program. I'm just convinced Cyrillic is far more practical: it is read by all of the potential users and supported by the simplest Unicode versions, unlike Glagolitic. Caesarion 17:15, 22 August 2005 (UTC)
    • In Russia it is learned in church schools, so many clericals can speak it.--Nxx 18:58, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Church Slavonic Wikipedia really should exist - if even Anglo-Saxon and Gothic ones do! -- Alexander Gerashchenko 08:27, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Support nl:Boudewijn Idema, 13:11, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Serbian wikipedia has special script to convert content between various scripts, so using glagolic alongside with cyrillic shouldn't be a problem. Kneiphof 16:24, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Support Keeno 13:36, 16 April 2006 (UTC) Again, etymologically important and also important as a liturgical language, so definitely.
