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:

I'm pretty sure proposer now understands that this page shouldn't have been created as "eligible". But, in fact, the project is eligible. StevenJ81 (talk) 20:38, 12 December 2019 (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:

Settings
Project name Wikshianery "Wiktionary" in your language
Project namespace Wikshianery usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Wikshianery reasoning "Wiktionary 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:Wiktionary-logo-en-v2.svg This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone America/Jamaica "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)


ProposalEdit

DiscussionEdit

@Dentonius: I think, what we do need to fill is the Proposal description, not repeating by using a deprecated old formattion template, isn't that? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 12:43, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
Hi @Liuxinyu970226:! Thanks for reaching out to me. I'm more or less new here. Can you point me in the right direction and tell me what documents/pages I need to look at? -- Dentonius (talk) 12:56, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
