Oriya Wikipedia 
There is no admin on the Oriya Wikipedia, but you are there. There is a minor technical deficiency, which can be easily fixed by an admin. Please see the note on or:MediaWiki talk:Monobook.js, and while we're at it, the same issue is unsolved on these Wikipediæ: pa:MediaWiki talk:Monobook.js, gu:MediaWiki talk:Monobook.js, bo:MediaWiki talk:Monobook.js. Thank you for listening. --Purodha Blissenbach 02:00, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Norsk (bokmal) on Betawiki 
Hi Jon Harald Søby. You have done at lot of translation work on the MediaWiki messages at Betawiki. I was wondering if you were still going to work on them and if we should maybe commit the currently changed messages to Subversion so they will be used everywhere. Please let us know at Process/tasks at Betawiki. Cheers! Siebrand 13:59, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
- Yeah, I still do. Just check my Special:Contributions. :-P Jon Harald Søby 19:16, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
system message translations 
Hi. I kind of picked you randomly for the list on Special projects subcommittees/Languages. I asked Nike on BetaWiki why his wiki isn't hosted by the WikiMediaFoundasion. He replied that it's because of the lack of activity from wmf side. First I thought these translations should be hosted on test.wikipedia, but Nike convinced me that's not a good idea. Couldn't BetaWiki's strength be merged with Incubator. Users would get translators rights, and Nike would get full developers rights (if he doesn't have it already). I tried looking for a Village Pump here on Meta to propose some changes, but didn't find it. Any thoughts.--Steinninn 14:59, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
- Meta:Babel comes close to a Village Pump. I support your proposal 100% :) Cheers! Siebrand 21:28, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
- It should be merged with Incubator. There is a thread about this on Foundation-l now, perhaps you're the one who started it? I'm on a slow connection, so it's a bit hard to check. Jon Harald Søby 17:48, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Waiting for the final approval of Bikol (bcl) Wikipedia 
Ottoman Turkish Wikipedia 
Jon, The current discussions about the proposal for conditional approval of the Ottoman Turkish Wikipedia are followed eagerly by contributors and members of this test project. As you would know this rather successful test Wikipedia has been active for over a year and there has been almost no change in status, or no feed back, so any move brings a hope for a step forward.
I respect your opinion on viability of some Wikipedias and not others, but I feel some point of views (of contributors) are not being taken into account.
The only opposing argument for the go ahead seems to be: - Ottoman Turkish is a historical and dead language, if it was classical language like Latin it would be a different case.
May I point out, that Ottoman Turkish is indeed Classical Turkish. THis language may be categorised as historical, but not so sure if it is dead language. Indeed it has never been a colloquial language and as a literary language it has evolved and in use as a Classical Turkish. For instance I have brought up in a Bahá'í family and have come to know some daily texts and prayers we use in Azeri Turkish are in fact Ottoman Turkish. You can also come a cross Ottoman web sites such as this one  with some religious contents, and tools for teaching Ottoman Turkish to kids].
Ottoman Turkish is classical Turkish and thousands of books and documents are written in this language. Naturally the Ottoman Turkish is not as known as Latin in the European literary circles, but it is indeed a classical language by any definition. That is all classical Turkish and Azerbaijani literature up until early twentieth century are written in this language.
Indeed approval of Ottoman Turkish would not set any precedence. WIth a quick look I could find following historical languages as active Wikipedias (there could be more) :
Ottoman Turkish within 621 years of Ottoman Empire has been used in a geographic region extending from Central Europe to Central Asia and the literary work if not more than some of the above, it is not least in number or importance.
We appreciate your involvement and other members of the Subcommittee in the discussion and hope for the positive outcome of the decision. --Mehrdad 18:39, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Conditional approval request for Ottoman Wikipedia 
Hi Jon Harald Søby, As you are a member of Language Subcommittee, you may know that currently there is a discussion in process for the approval of Ottoman Turkish Wikipedia. As a one of the requesters for approval of this project, I have left some comments in Special_projects_subcommittees/Languages page. Also have placed some information on Educational activities on Ottoman Language that you may like to browse.
Thanks in advance for your attention on this subject --Mehrdad 17:32, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
