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 02:35, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Oppose Human resources (sysops, translators etc.) for the Japanese language projects are stretched so thin right now, I won’t be surprised if someone gets Karōshi (can be mentally as well if not physically). I don’t think it is a good idea to add another project in Japanese language at the moment. I also think that we should put more emphasis on quality instead of quantity, right now. I would not oppose this proposal forever, but I don’t think I would say “yea” anytime soon.--Californiacondor 06:07, 6 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
