From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Clear roadblock for wiki site URL changes

  • Problem: The domains of several Wikimedia wikis should be renamed. This was done once, when be-x-old.wikipedia.org was renamed to be-tarask.wikipedia.org, but this renaming exposed several issues. Performing any more renaming is not advised until these issues are resolved.
  • Who would benefit: Users of wiki sites pending for rename.
  • Proposed solution: Clear roadblock for wiki project language code changes so that they can be changed
  • More comments: It have been a decade since these renaming were initially requested.


Note that this is currently blocking creation and translation of Wikipedia into certain language projects. C933103 (talk) 08:21, 9 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Currently nowiki is effectively perpetrating linguistic discrimination due to a domain and language code anomaly, and an age-old language conflict. This proposal would potentially make it possible for us to find a way out of this embarassing situation. - Soulkeeper (talk) 16:22, 9 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
