Currently, the policy only allows Wikisource wikis in ancient or
extinct languages. The decision on this request will affect that
Whenever possible, I think ancient languages should be projects on
their direct descendant language's wiki — on the Greek Wikiquote in
this case. This ensures greater exposure, participation, and
organization of the content as a whole. This is particularly true for
the Greek Wikiquote, which Zacharias tells me is virtually inactive.
However, Zacharias says that this is not feasible because of the
disapproval of a temporary sysop on that wiki, and the poor quality of
ancient Greek content on the Greek Wikiquote. These issues could be
corrected by replacing the temporary sysop, and with more attention
from the ancient Greek community on the Greek Wikiquote.
I'm not opposed to approving Wikiquote wikis in ancient or extinct
languages, but I'd like to see more discussion before deciding whether
or not ancient Greek needs its own wiki separate from Greek.
