Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).
Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.
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.

Files should be uploaded to Commons, but if you want, you can enable local file uploading.
Notes: (1) files on Commons can be used on all wikis; (2) this setting can be changed afterwards; (3) uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info); (4) localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons

The Western Panjabi language is spoken by more than sixty million million people in the Montgomery and Gujranwala districts of the Punjab Region, Pakistan. While most Western Panjabis today are bilingual in Urdu, the Western Panjabi language is distinct from Urdu and belongs to the Lahnda macrolanguage family. The Western Panjabi edition of Wikipedia has over ten thousand articles, and it's importance may grow in the near future.
SupportSupport: Native speakers of Western Panjabi have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Western Panjabi language deserves to be given the opportunity and priviledge to have its own language edition of Wikinews along with the existing Western panjabi Wikipedia. --Jose77 22:52, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
