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.

  • Explanation by the closing Langcom member: No chance to pass in this bad form. Proposal made by someone who seems to see making these proposals as a sport. --MF-W 20:48, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Type: 2 (non-routine proposal)
  • Proposed outcome: closure
  • Proposed action regarding the content: move to Wikia, Shoutwiki, Miraheze...
  • Notice on the project: jbo:uikipedi'as:bende ckupau#Closure request
  • Informed Group(s): (Which chapters, wiki projects, and other community groups have been informed, if any.)
  • Clerk comment. Proposal changed to closure. There is no cause to take this to sudden deletion (such as massive vandalism/spam attacks requiring oversight). StevenJ81 (talk) 13:40, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

The Illojban Wikipedia should be deleted. It is a niche conlang, similar to Klingon and Tokipona, which were both closed and deleted. Not only that, but Lojban grammar is completely messed up compared to other conlangs (like Esperanto). The English Wiktionary defines Lojban words using loanwords from Lojban (like "gismu"), because it is so complicated that words like "noun" and "verb" do not apply to it. There was discussion of closing jbowiki around the same time that tlhwiki and tokiponawiki were closed. Tl;dr: jbowiki is unencyclopedic. KATMAKROFAN (talk) 01:26, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
