Request for approval of Gungbe Wikiquote (Wq/guw)Edit

Hello, I would like to request for the approval of Gungbe Wikiquote. Kindly look into it. Thanks!-- Samatics (talk) 17:41, 12 July 2022 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you for your efforts. Wp/guw was created in March of this year, and now Wt/guw is about to be created, so this will be reviewed again after wikt is created. There are currently 336 pages, so I expect more content to be added than you currently have. --Sotiale (talk) 09:05, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
Thanks!-- Samatics (talk) 12:37, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
@Sotiale, Wt/guw has been created and we have added more content pages. Please look into it. Thanks.-- Samatics (talk) 08:58, 1 September 2022 (UTC)
Hello, Samatics. late reply. Recently, several opinions have been made about the approval of Wikiquote, which is being discussed. While this is going on, please add more content to the project and create new pages. Perhaps guwwiki and guwwiktionary already exist, so it will take some effort to maintain them and create new ones. --Sotiale (talk) 02:58, 3 September 2022 (UTC)

Approval of Manchu WikipediaEdit

Hello, the Manchu test Wikipedia has many Users in this months and also many pages. Can it be Approved? TayfunEt. (talk) 06:00, 18 August 2022 (UTC)

There are users doing socking in that project, so we need to look closely at it. This may be the user, not your speaker, so it's not your fault. It's hard right now, but later when I have time, I'll review its activity and propose to langcom for approval if the conditions are met. --Sotiale (talk) 01:08, 20 August 2022 (UTC)
Hi. Looking at the active users of this project, July had 3 valid users, but from April to June there was none. The rest are blocked users or their socks. This means that the community is not sufficiently formed. Approval requires active users to be considered a community of editors, and long enough to be active. --Sotiale (talk) 12:23, 27 August 2022 (UTC)

Notification about proposed approval of Central Bikol WikiquoteEdit

Tracked in Phabricator:
task T316453

Hi. The language committee intends to approve Requests for new languages/Wikiquote Central Bikol. If you have any objections to that based on the language proposal policy, please tell us here on this page in the next 7 days. Meanwhile, the community is asked to check (and if necessary, complete) the wiki settings as indicated on the request page. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 02:17, 20 August 2022 (UTC)

@Kunokuno and Daphpb: Hello. On behalf of langcom, I will send a request to the Phabricator to create bclwikiquote. Please check that the settings on this page are correct. For example, the project discussion namespace in bclwiki is "Olay sa Wikipedia", but the link says "Ulay sa Wikisambit". Check if Olay and Ulay are used properly and there is no problem. --Sotiale (talk) 12:07, 27 August 2022 (UTC)
Hi Sotiale, that is correct. We have updated some translations on translate.wiki and we opted to use the Ulay instead of Olay. Although both are correct, the orthography manual that we currently use in developing the project would prefer the U instead of O. Kunokuno (talk) 12:36, 27 August 2022 (UTC)
Good, thanks. I will be making the ticket to Phab soon. --Sotiale (talk) 01:00, 28 August 2022 (UTC)

Notification about proposed approval of Tagalog WikiquoteEdit

Hi. The language committee intends to approve Requests for new languages/Wikiquote Tagalog. If you have any objections to that based on the language proposal policy, please tell us here on this page in the next 7 days. Meanwhile, the community is asked to check (and if necessary, complete) the wiki settings as indicated on the request page. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 13:00, 30 August 2022 (UTC)

@Kunokuno and Sheanjean: Hello. I would like to encourage you to work with your community to check within 7 days that the settings on this page are correct. --Sotiale (talk) 13:03, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
@Sotiale: Hi, I've just checked the settings and compared it with the Tagalog Wikipedia for uniformity. The settings are fine but I will also follow up with the Wq/tl editors for their approval. If there are no further comments from them then it is already set as final. Thank you! Kunokuno (talk) 13:29, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
For example, Wikipedia talk: namespace(Project talk) on tlwiki is "Usapang Wikipedia". In the current tlwikiquote setting, Wikiquote talk: namespace is "Wikikawikaan:Usapan". There seems to be some inconsistency, please check this as well. Thanks! --Sotiale (talk) 13:42, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
I've missed that one, I've corrected it now. :) Kunokuno (talk) 14:05, 30 August 2022 (UTC)

Approval Request for Angika Wikipedia (Wp/anp)Edit

Ladies / Gentlemen, I am one of the users who have been trying a number of months to make the Wikipedia in the Angika language (a variant of the old and respectable Sanskrit language) come out of the Incubator. And right now where we have reached and surpassed the 2,000 pages (2,679 - see: [1]) and are ready to claim an honorable place for Angika, among the regional Wikipedias of India. Due to recent editing, Wikipedia in Angika Bhasha is now well developed. I thus propose for the Committee to approve its coming out of the Incubator. Please review the project for final approval. Thanks. Sincerely yours, Propriyam! (talk) 08:00, 1 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi Propriyam. Approval for your test project is under discussion! In the process, it was pointed out that there were some pages that were virtually empty as follows;

I am sure that if your supplements can be made to these pages, your project will be approved smoothly. I hope that you will be able to supplement these pages during the approval process. --Sotiale (talk) 14:06, 1 September 2022 (UTC)

Sir, I supplemented these 6 pages with standard information, and to be very honestly still supplementing few other empty pages that was first created in 2015. I hope that this scenario will not affect the project of 'Angika Wikipedia' in future. Sincerely yours Propriyam! (talk) 06:15, 2 September 2022 (UTC)
@Propriyam!: Thank you for your efforts! Yes, as you know, some pages created in 2015 have only headings and categories like above. Can your community work together to make up for this? I'm sure the approval will go ahead if this issue is resolved; I haven't found any other issues with Wp/anp. May I check again on September 18 and submit comments to langcom? In the meantime, langcom will find experts for the verification process for approval and prepare for the next process. Please supplement as many pages as possible. --Sotiale (talk) 03:12, 3 September 2022 (UTC)
Yes Sir, Our community will work together to make up for this situation. As I said earlier we are doing our best for supplementing those pages as much as possible, if those empty pages, will not affect the process then of course you can check again on September 18 for the verification process. Thanks. Sincerely yours Propriyam! (talk) 08:53, 7 September 2022 (UTC)

What is the official opening date of a linguistic edition ?Edit

I will ask my question for the Sorani but my question is generic.

If I look this article Sorani Kurdish Wikipedia, the official date is 12 August 2009 and the reference page is [2].

In the french article Wikipédia en sorani the date is 13 August 2009 and the reference page is [3].

Il I consult the page [4] the date indicate 14 November 2010. But I suppose it is only the date of the comment.

Can you help to find the good date ?

Have you a page where all the dates of the linguistic editions are listed (included the incubator) ? Berdea (talk) 11:55, 4 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi. I think it depends on how you define "opening date". In general, this can be thought of when the wiki is just created and accessible, or it can be thought of when the import is complete; access became possible on August 12 2009, and the import was completed on August 13 2009. So, in a sense, both expressions are correct. It's probably just a matter of what you focus on. --Sotiale (talk) 12:40, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer. Anyway, I'm looking the page where the different opening dates are put. Do you know for instance where I can find the official opening date for the Northern Sotho Wikipedia ? --Berdea (talk) 14:59, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
Do you think that the date mentioned here, 29 october 2011, is the official date ? --Berdea (talk) 15:13, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
There is no "offical date" defined by anyone. But incubator:I:SCL lists the days when the wikis were created. They usually became "usable" after the pages from Incubator were imported on the same day or some days later, but the exact times of that are not recorded. --MF-W 17:43, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
This page Incubator:Site creation log is very interesting, thanks. The only problem is that this page begin 30 September 2006. For instance I have a doute for the Sundanese Wikipedia, if I look here the date is october 2003 bus if I look Wikipedia en sundanés the date is 15 marzo 2004, somebody can help me to find the good date ? --Berdea (talk) 19:54, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
It's no different from what I mentioned earlier. 2003 is the year the website became accessible, and the next is probably the date the editing started. --Sotiale (talk) 11:49, 5 September 2022 (UTC)

Request for approval of Nepali Wikiquote (Wp/ne)Edit

I think Nepali Wikiquote is ready to be approved. बडा काजी (talk) 12:09, 9 September 2022 (UTC)

Projects that have been inactive for more than 1 year cannot be considered ready for approval. I would be grateful if you would contribute to the activation of the project and the community forming. --Sotiale (talk) 14:48, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
