Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Kannada Wikibooks

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The result was close.--Cometstyles 12:51, 26 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Kannada Wikibooks should be closed since it has no legitimate content and no useful activity. The content of this Wikibooks is the Main Page, a spam page, and "Wikipedia:Administrators". I asked the admin of the Kannada Wikipedia and he's in favor of closing. -- Prince Kassad 08:45, 28 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  3. Support. It might have many speakers, but it's a different world there. Just like I once said about African language: most people have no computer (and think about Internet...) (almost) no content + no activity + no community + (a part is) english interface = no wikibooks, sorry. --OosWesThoesBes 15:41, 28 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  4. Support -- one (presumably) Kannada article (b:kn:Special:Allpages) and no recent useful activity besides cleanup (b:kn:Special:Recentchanges).--A. B. (talk) 13:00, 30 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  5. Support — basically per what A. B. said. It has no (meaningful) content or activity. --Agüeybaná 15:55, 20 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  1. Oppose --User:Prathik YR I strongly oppose this 06:38, 31 july 2012

Kannada has rich heritage and cultural background. I think Government of Karnataka has to take initiative and use this viable platform to bring out the richness of our language and culture.
