This request has not necessarily been rejected, and new requests are welcome. This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 05:04, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

    • This is just one out of many languages in India and the surrounding countries. Even many of the biggest Indian languages have trouble with finding contributors to its Wikipedia. Can you find some other contributors than you, bdebbarma? Caesarion 08:51, 24 August 2005 (UTC)
    • The point is not of unavalability of contributors, there are many willing to contribute to the language wiki once it starts, there is a language momentum going on in this language and as the wiki guide says even a few dedicated contributors can carry forward a wiki. anyways thanks for your concern, please guide me how to start it soon. bdebbarma
      • First of all: let people know about your idea of this new Wikipedia and make them subscribe under "User accounts of others who are willing etc..." (above). Then you can create a Test Wikipedia (for example at Test-wp/sit-trp/), which is optional but beneficial, since people immediately have the opportunity to write articles. In the mean time, you can also translate the interface files into your language. If the developers judge that there are enough willing contributors they will create the new Wikipedia. Then you transmit the Test wiki articles and there it is: a Wikipedia in Kokborok. Caesarion 09:19, 24 August 2005 (UTC)
        • thanks, have already started working on the test wikipedia, will contact some more people and gather the support for the new wikipedia creation in kokborok. bdebbarma
