  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 01:12, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

    • No longer spoken, old literary language from which modern Tatar is descended.
    • No ISO code. Are there any better suggestions than tt-ske?
      • May be tt-iske? (I think bettr, than ske) -- 21:00, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC) (User:Untifler)
        • Not sure why we need an Old Tatar Wikipedia. The Old English Wikipedia wasn't created until had nearly 500k articles, and scores of users. I think we should wait until reaches a similar point. --Node ue 16:49, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
