Requests for new languages/Wikiversity Tajik

Tajik WikiversityEdit

main page Request for a new language edition: Wikiversity Tajik
submitted verification final decision
  This proposal has been rejected.
While this request has technically been rejected, in reality this is a request that has been sitting open or on hold for a long time with little evidence of a community coming together to build a project. If a community comes together in the future and makes a new request, LangCom would consider that new request without prejudice.

A committee member provided the following comment:

No content has been created on Beta Wikiversity, even though the request is over a year old. If a community reappears with a real interest, let us know. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 16:08, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
  • 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 tg (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Tajik Language name in English
Language name тоҷикӣ 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 Q9260 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Tajik
  • native label (P1705) = форсии тоҷикӣ, забони тоҷикӣ, тоҷикӣ, забони форсии тоҷикӣ, toçikī, zaboni toçikī, تاجیکی, زبان تاجیکی
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language, Persian dialect, official language / Persian, languages of Tajikistan
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = tg
  • writing system (P282) = Cyrillic, Persian alphabet, Latin script, Tajik alphabet, Hebrew alphabet
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 14,000,000

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 no indication Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Project name "Wikiversity" in your language
Project namespace тоҷикӣ tg usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace тоҷикӣ tg "Wikiversity 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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:... This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Continent/City "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
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

@Gnosis: Would you be active in Tajik Wikiversity? As you are not active in Tajik Wikipedia I don't expect for that. --Doostdar (talk) 14:06, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
