submitted verification final decision
  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 22:02:49, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose, we should not have Wikipedias in the dialect of one city. Use Wikicities for initiatives like this. Neither do I see any possibility to integrate the Liverpool dialect into a bigger Wikipedia for, say, a Wikipedia for all of Middle/Northern England. These dialects are simply not considered separate languages by linguists and that must be the criterion for approving or denying such initiatives. And as I said, there is an alternative: Wikicities.
