||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).
The language committee needs to verify the language is eligible to be approved.
- Check that the project does not already exist (see list).
- Obtain an ISO 639 code
- 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.
- 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:
||Example / Explanation
||mwr (SIL, Ethnologue)
||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
||Language name in English
||Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
||"Wikipedia" in your language
||usually the same as the project name
|Project talk namespace
||"Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
||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
||135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
|Default project timezone
||"Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
||For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
||Anything else that should be set
The Marwari language (Mārwāṛī; also variously Marvari, Marwadi, Marvadi) is spoken in the Indian state of Rajasthan, Haryana but is also found in the neighboring state of Gujarat and in Eastern Pakistan. With some 13.2 million speakers (as of 1997, ca. 13 million in India and 200,000 in Pakistan) it is the largest language by number of speakers of the Marwari subgroup of the "Rajasthani language" There about 23 dialects of the Marwari Language. It is written with the Mahajani and Devanagari script, as is Hindi, Sanskrit, Marathi and Nepali. In Pakistan it is written in the Perso-Arabic script with modifications. Marwari currently has no official status as a language of education and government. There has been a push in the recent past for the national government to recognize this language and give it a scheduled status. The state of Rajasthan recognizes Rajasthani as a language. In Pakistan, there are two varieties of Marwari. They may or may not be close enough to Indian Marwari to be considered the same language. Closely related languages to Marwari in the Rajasthani cluster are: Gojri, Shekhawati, Hadoti, Dhundhari, Mewari, Brij, Bagri, Wagdi, Mewati, and others. There are ongoing efforts to identify and classify this language cluster and the language differences.
Arguments in favour 
- Support: As and per nom. As a native speaker, I can assert that Marwari is a widely spoken language and that the community will benefit with such a Wiki. Avenue X at Cicero 12:41, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
BHAISA!!!! GHANNI KHAMMA!!! MAI BHI BOIJ BOLUHU. It is also a well known fact that MARWARIS (MARWDI speaking community) are spread all over the world and have given huge contribution in almost all industries like DOCTORS,ENGINEERS,PILOTS,LAWYERS,COMPUTER PROFFESIONALS ,etc. to name a few.
