Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Kwanyama Wikipedia

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

I propose to close this discussion within seven days from now, unless there are objections. --Johannes Rohr 06:51, 3 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Ending per discussion. Result: Delete (and move existing minimal legitimate content to incubator). --Johannes Rohr 06:57, 10 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I believe, the Kwanyama Wikipedia should be closed. According to en:, Kwanyama is a language spoken in Angola and Namibia by an estimated 420,000 people.

The Wiki has no community at all. The complete content is

  1. A list of the four seasons
  2. A list of the days of the week
  3. A list of the months of the year
  4. A list of chapters of the bible
  5. a stub on Jehova's Witnesses

See kj:Special:Allpages.

According to the history of the mainpage, it was created August 29 2004. So it has had almost three years. --Johannes Rohr 07:06, 4 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]
