|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikisource Kabardian-Circassian|
- The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics). 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||kbd (SIL, Glottolog)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Kabardian-Circassian||Language name in English|
|Language name||адыгэбзэ||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||Q33522 - 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.|
|Directionality||LTR||Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?|
|Links||Learning Kabardian resource, Adyga.org, Adiga.narod.ru, Elot.ru||Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.|
|Project name||"Wikisource" in your language|
|Project namespace||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||"Wikisource 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.
|Project logo||File:...||This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).|
|Default project timezone||Asia/Makhachkala||"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|

This looks a bit strange. The request is under the name "Kabardian-Circassian", which is technically the English name of KBD plus the name of the branch that contains it along with Adyghe (ADY). The actual test project at the Multilingual Wikisource seems to be on ADY (see oldwikisource:Main Page/Адыгэбзэ and oldwikisource:Category:Ady Адыгэбзэ (Adyghe)). That being said, I think there could be a unified project under the name Circassian, because this is Wikisource and the two languages are close enough anyway. MF-Warburg, what do you think?

- Good question. No problem with having a joint wiki if the community wants it, I suppose. --MF-W 14:24, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
