Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Support. I think it will be a very useful and successful site. --Jack hadfield 15:27, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. I think it's a good idea and interest among users is growing fast. --K sal 15 14:55, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. Ι think this site would be useful because everyone will be able to learn from his/her home quickly and free.--Diaza 14:59, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. Greek should have a database like this.--Diaza 15:02, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. The Greek Wikipedia has enough users, and sure it would be very good and practical to be created for them a Wikiversity, that for them will provide fast and easy knowledge.--Consta 16:28, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. I am in contact with some of the participants at the IRC chat #wikiversity-el (all nice people :-)). Well sometimes I do not understand them (because I only know 3 Greek sentences :-( ). But I think from a culture that had a great influence (on the west, e.g. with their writers, ...), it is logic that a step is done to also continue this in a digital form. With Greek Wikipedia having >11000 users and >27000 articles I believe Wikiversity can have some input at the begin to work with. --Erkan Yilmaz 11:50, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. More and more users are interested as the proposal of launching a greek university is getting known, and it would be something that will help the greek society, especially in the next few years in my opinion. --Assassingr 12:35, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. Un bon début au niveau des pages déja créées et la communauté des wikiversity ne demande qu'à grandir. A good start in terms of pages already created and the community of wikiversity want to grow Crochet.david 09:00, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. Greek is a living language and can use a Wikiversity. --Ooswesthoesbes 13:52, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. Why not? Let's try it! --Pvasiliadis 23:49, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Arguments against[edit]

  • none.

General discussion[edit]

  • I would like to announce that a incubated greek version of wikiversity on beta was created.--Diaza 18:08, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
  • I propose my interwikibot to links with the five existing wikiversity. Crochet.david 20:20, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. The tabs are rounded by changing MediaWiki:Common.css; I can help you implement rounded tabs after the wiki is created. —{admin} Pathoschild 19:36:52, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
