Process-stop.svg This proposal has been closed as part of a reform of the request process.
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 07:26, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Proposal summary
  • Language details: Ido (ido ISO 639-3)
  • Editing community: Mithridates (P)
    List your user name if you're interested in editing the wiki. Add "N" next to your
    name if you are a native speaker of this language.
  • Relevant pages: —
  • External links:
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.
  • People interested: Mithridates, probably a large number of users from the Wikipedia and anyone from the few hundred Ido users at Yahoo Groups. Especially the older users that like to write things that they know won't be edited by someone with a lesser command of the language (a common complaint with Wikipedia)

This shouldn't be that hard a request - Ido has a Wikipedia with over 10,000 articles, a Wiktionary with 40,000 words+, and there is already a large volume of proverbs and citations on here and there that I believe should be compiled in one place. For examples of proverbs and citations already present see [1] (everything that says E-CITAJI is a list of citations), [2], [3], [4], [5], [6] (has a new proverb every day on top of the news), and whatever else I've overlooked.

  • Support. I'm not a speaker/user/supporter of Ido, but I can't think of a single reason not to. --IJzeren Jan 14:00, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. No problem --Taichi - (あ!) 02:27, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
    • Well, looks like there's no problem...er, so when does it get set up? Mithridates 06:40, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. I'm not a great fan of conlangs at Wikimedia, but it would only be fair. ARBE0 16:29, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support; other Ido projects are clearly successful. The Jade Knight 04:03, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Uhm... why should we make wikis in artificial languages? I know, there are various wikipedias in languages like esperanto , ido etc., but i think we should make wikipedias in real languages, especially if endangered.--93.40.160.204 20:09, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
