From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it.

This is a proposal for closing and/or deleting a wiki hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation. It is subject to the current closing projects policy.

The proposal is rejected and the project will be kept open.

  • A Language Committee member provided the following comment:
    Was almost closed but there was new activity, and when in doubt, it's preferred to keep a wiki open

  • Type: 1 (routine proposal)
  • Proposed outcome: closure
  • Proposed action regarding the content: should be transferred to Wikimedia Incubator
  • Notice on the project: (Please warn the project.)
  • Informed Group(s): (Which chapters, wiki projects, and other community groups have been informed, if any.)

Notice: Can be found here This project is a type 1 proposal. I believe that this Wikibooks edition is a dead one. Kazakh is certainly a major language of Asia, with over 8 Million speakers. The Kazakh Wikipedia has made a major growth in its existence, with over 60,000 articles as of July 19 2011. However, Kazakh Wikibooks is a dead Wikibooks (invalid?). Most Kazakh speakers have NOT contributed, with only 2 articles since the closure of the last discussion source. This is VERY slow. Most Kazakhs are contributing to the Kazakh Wikipedia, and most likely never even heard of the Wikibooks. Kazakh Wikipedia has had a slow growth, and most work should be focused on the Wikipedia. Also, there seems to be a complete lack of interest in this project. Again, most are working on the Kazakh Wikipedia, not Wikibooks. I propose that this wiki be locked, but NOT deleted. If interest shows and soon this wiki is no longer dead and there is more interest in developing a Kazakh Wikibooks, this will be withdrawn. If little or no improvement is shown within 30 days, this Wikibooks is not worthy of making a title.
