The Board of Trustees and language committee have deemed that there is sufficient grounds and community to create the new language project.

A committee member provided the following comment:

bugzilla:44460. --MF-W 10:41, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
  • The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics). 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:
What Value Example / Explanation
Proposal
Language code ko (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Korean Language name in English
Language name 한국어 Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Community Kwj2772 (N), Yknok29 (N), knight2000 (N), Devunt (N), 관인생략 (N), Sotiale (N), DangSunM (N)
You can optionally list your user name if you're a contributor to the wiki. Add "N" next to your name if you are a native speaker of this language.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name 위키배움터 "Wikiversity" in your language
Project namespace 위키배움터 usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace 위키배움터토론 "Wikiversity talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads Disable 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
Optional settings
Project logo File:Wikiversity-logo-ko.png 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Asia/Seoul "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit bug request (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Approximately 78 million speakers worldwide

Arguments against/반대 의견[edit]

General discussion[edit]

  • General Comment - I would like to note that Korean Wikiversity was one of the original "demo" Wikiversities that was demonstrated for the original proposal. Unfortunately, it was put on en.wikibooks and subsequently deleted during a non-english content cleanup campaign. See this link for more details. If/when this is put up, I could suggest undelete some of that content, but it really wasn't more than a few pages. Still, the fact that it was even started at all more than two years ago (first edit was 20 August 2004) speaks volumes over the potential this could have. I hope the Korean speakers eventually get together enough to get this proposal accepted. --Roberth 18:07, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
  • FYI Localisation is a precondition to final approval. Given that only 70.62% of the MediaWiki messages have been localised at this time, it falls short from what is expected of second projects for a language. Expected is localisation for all MediaWiki messages and all the extensions used in the WMF. GerardM 12:38, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
  • please make this language wikiversity fastly.--Betalph 02:10, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
  • For activity statistics, check here, not the above one. --관인생략 (talk) 03:04, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
  • KO Category (Korean Wikiversity in BETA) is activated. It has 250+ articles, default policies and guideline, many default templates. I think that Korean Wikiversity can be approved by committee :) --Sotiale (talk) 05:38, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Localisation effort[edit]

  • Currently 74.49% of the MediaWiki messages and 11.54% of the messages used in extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation have been localised at Betawiki. Thanks, GerardM 07:32, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Currently 74.76% of the MediaWiki messages and 36.01% of the messages used in extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation have been localised at Betawiki. Thanks, GerardM 07:27, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Currently 72.45% of the MediaWiki messages and 33.14% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation projects have been localised. Localisation of these messages is a requirement before your request is finally assessed. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 15:03, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Currently 99.37% of the MediaWiki messages and 74.29% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation projects have been localised. Localisation of these messages is a requirement before your request is finally assessed. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 11:22, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Core messages = Yes check.svg Done, Extensions messages used by Wikimedia = Yes check.svg DoneKwj2772 (msg) 09:15, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
