main page Request for a new language edition: Wikivoyage Indonesian

submitted verification final decision


This language has been verified as eligible.
The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.

Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval.

If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.

A committee member provided the following comment:

No doubts about the eligibility of the language; when the activity criteria are fulfilled, it can be approved.. --MF-W 13:31, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
  • The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). 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 id (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Indonesian Language name in English
Language name Bahasa Indonesia 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 Q9240 - 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 Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Project name Wikiwisata "Wikivoyage" in your language
Project namespace Wikiwisata usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Pembicaraan_Wikiwisata "Wikivoyage talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads yes 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:Wikivoyage-logo-id-new.svg This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Jakarta "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)

Indonesian has 23 million native speakers and 140 million second language speakers, who speak it alongside their local mother tongue. It is used extensively as a first language by Indonesians in urban areas, and as a second language by those residing in more rural parts of Indonesia. I hope Indonesian visitors can understand to using Wikivoyage with local languange, also presenting Indonesian culture to the world. Bonaditya (talk) 04:38, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Support Why? it already has 336 pages on Article spaces, and it will grow even more as you already know so many Indonesian speaker out there (Also, sorry MF warburg some of these people can't understand English so their argument will be just showing their support rather than showing their reason why they supporting it).--AldNonUcallin?☎ 12:57, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
Update : It's now 778 article.--AldNonUcallin?☎ 13:55, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Support This language version is primaryly intended to give Indonesians a travel guide about local destinations as well as more established international one. It become relevant because not many Indonesians who need local travel guide can (and willing to) read English. ArdWar(TCL) 19:23, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Additional note: On Indonesian Wikibooks, there is a similar namespace "Wisata" (Travel) dedicated to travel guides. I think that information can have a new home at Indonesian Wikivoyage. 12:11, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    Indeed, those pages need to be migrated when id.wikivoyage created. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:26, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
    Is there any update on this request? It's seems stalling. Veracious (talk) 04:11, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
    Yes, because while you are an active editor, for the past several months, you are the only regular contributor, but we would look for there to be at least ~3. --MF-W 09:36, 8 September 2022 (UTC)
    Alright, besides ~3 people , is there any time-constraint? Veracious (talk) 09:04, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
