From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The result of the following proposal for closing a WMF project is to KEEP the project. Please, do not modify this page.

The following discussion is closed: speedy close, result: keep, Siebrand 22:33, 29 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]

In my opinion the Kikuyu Wikipedia should be close. It has only stubs , and the Main Page. very few activity. send to incubator. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

  1. Oppose Malangali 07:59, 30 July 2008 (UTC) Closing a project like this does tremendous harm to the efforts many people are making to kick-start IT development in African languages. Having the Wikipedia in place is important so that we can demonstrate the potential and bring people into the process of localization and Africanization. This is one in a series of anonymous, unsigned proposals to close African languages - delete the proposal as unacceptable.[reply]
  2. Oppose Oliver Stegen 13:02, 30 July 2008 (UTC) For all the above reasons. Also, Kikuyu is a major language in Kenya. Finally, since when can an anonymous user (who showed up only on a single day, viz July 18) propose the closure of all kinds of small language wikipedias? He should be blocked and his proposals deleted![reply]
  3. Oppose --A12n 12:19, 9 August 2008 (UTC) Agree with the above on all points. Also suggest that a new approach is needed for African language projects.[reply]
  4. Oppose No valid resons for closure given. Better than closure was, to make more people aware of the Wikipedia, and best to make internet access cheaper and more widespread in the Kikuyu speaking parts of the world! --Purodha Blissenbach 17:39, 4 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]
