Whether to delete Bulgarian WikinewsEdit

The task to delete Bulgarian Wikinews is currently "stalled" (phab:T233322). Shall the task be reopened (and probably eliminate "redirect" from title), or what else to do with the task? George Ho (talk) 20:20, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Is there a necessity to delete the wiki? I'm unsure. --MF-W 09:42, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
What about the articles copied from third-party sources, sensational articles whose "facts" are questionable, and all that? The whole Bulgarian community have favored deleting the whole project without saving any content there or transferring content to another project. Why the reluctance? George Ho (talk) 16:21, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
I'm wondering if it isn't enough to simply delete all the pages. That's probably less work for the technical side. --MF-W 17:37, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
Then why do you want the closed project to remain as-is for now? What are you hoping for the project's fate? --George Ho (talk) 03:35, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Well, not as-is, but with the deletion of the pages. --MF-W 22:06, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

Approval of Taroko WikipediaEdit

I would like to point out that the recent activity of Wikipedia Taroko (incubator:Wp/trv) is really good, it has already translated over 1611 articles. Overview, there are 1991 pages (including categories, templates, talk pages, and redirects). It's been active for a long time. The quality and quantity of articles are also comming to a certain level. Furthermore, MediaWiki(most important messages) is over 91% translated. Is there any possible that Taroko can be verified as approved?Mecytan (talk) 03:43, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

  Support, [1] tells me that there are already more than 10 contributors that are contributing new contents in the past half years. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 13:11, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi! Thanks for mentioning this here. The activity on Incubator looks very good. Please finish the most-used MediaWiki messages translation. --MF-W 00:01, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg:Thanks for your advice.The most-used MediaWiki messages translation is 100% translated. We would like to know how can we push it to the next step?Mecytan (talk) 04:17, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
User:Mecytan: what's now missing is only the verification of the content. We (Langcom) are already on it. There should be an update within the next two weeks. --MF-W 02:56, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Nias Wikipedia and WiktionaryEdit

Hello. Please notice our proposal on Nias Wikipedia and Wiktionary approval. Thank you. Rano (talk) 03:12, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

@Banio ba Hinako: The second request isn't eligible yet, though it's very likely to be eligible per the Wikipedia one, are you sure that the second one should also consider approving? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:49, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
Fyi, both are considering: [2]. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 23:18, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you Liuxinyu970226. I had subscribed to the mailing list. Why isn't Wiktionary eligible? What criteria haven't met yet? Rano (talk) 02:59, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
Maybe langcom members have no times to do so? At least I see no reason why it can't be eligible. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:02, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
I have marked it as eligible now, which is really just a formality in this case. --MF-W 01:28, 11 November 2020 (UTC)
PS @Banio ba Hinako: I think the rest important thing before a final approval is the interface translations? All things within Wikimedia are seem done, the rest thing is happened on translatewiki.net which is beyond Wikimedia's control. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:16, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Hello @Liuxinyu970226:, there is only one untranslated message on translatewiki since I wrote this request. Until now, we still can't translate it. When I try to publish the translation, it always say "Publishing the translation failed: You do not have permission to edit this page because it contains raw HTML which can be modified to affect all visitors."
I'm asking for help on translatewiki support now. banio (talk) 04:08, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
Most used messages done translated. banio (talk) 12:50, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Hello! The activity is very good, please keep up the great work. The projects will soon be ready for approval, we (Langcom) only need to verify the content. We are already on it, but if you could recommend a linguist who would be able to confirm to us that the projects are indeed written in correct Nias, you can also e-mail me about that. --MF-W 03:01, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Approval for Madurese WikipediaEdit

Madurese Wikipedia is a growing community with quite stable contributors over last few months. As administrator, I'd like to inform to the committee that the translations to Madurese has been completed. It seems like we have met the criteria for approval, could you review the proposal? We would love to hear further news. --Boesenbergia (talk) 07:24, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your comment. We are discussing it now. --MF-W 22:43, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
  This section is resolved and can be archived. If you disagree, replace this template with your comment. MF-W 03:02, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Notification about proposed approval of Saraiki Wikipedia and WiktionaryEdit

Hi! Langcom intends to approve Saraiki Wikipedia and Wiktionary. If you have objections to that based on the language proposal policy, please tell us here on this page in the next seven days. --MF-W 22:41, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

See now: phabricator:T268410 for the Wikipedia. For Wiktionary, some info about the settings is still required. --MF-W 17:06, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Notification about proposed approval of Esperanto Wikivoyage, Walloon Wikisource and Madurese WikipediaEdit

Hi! Langcom intends to approve Esperanto Wikivoyage, Walloon Wikisource and Madurese Wikipedia. If you have objections to that based on the language proposal policy, please tell us here on this page in the next seven days. --MF-W 23:58, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

So can Georgian Wikisource be the next one to request approval?Edit

Fyi, this topic was again bumped by @ჯეო: on a non-Wikimedia platform, and within the main request page, but with the fatal errors in [3], I'm not sure how they are ready for an official kawikisource. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:21, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

@Liuxinyu970226: Open it and you will see how ready we are--ჯეოCommonsski (talk) 06:08, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Hello. Are all pages in oldwikisource:Category:Georgian? --MF-W 03:04, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Request for Approval of BCL WiktionaryEdit

Good day. Please check if our local Wiktionary is already eligible. You may check our status here. Kunokuno (talk) 13:53, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

I think you are ready for approval and have proposed it to the language committee. --MF-W 03:11, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
