Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Xitsonga Wikipedia

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.

The Tsonga Wikipedia is dead and has almost no content. This is the latest activity within the last 30 days at that project and this is the current content: 190 pages (17 were created since April 2010). Only bots come across to create user pages and adding interwiki's and one vandal came by, Thuvack (a former admin) was very active from 2008 til 2009, but he's inactive ever since. Since there's no content, no community and no activity I propose this wiki to be closed and therefore its content to be moved to the Wikimedia Incubator wiki.

Could you add the notice on a more prominent place? Thank you. SPQRobin (talk) 21:37, 18 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Do you have a suggestion for me about where I could add the notice? Regards, Trijnstel 21:38, 18 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]
ts:Wikipedia:Community_Portal looks "active", or the main page. SPQRobin (talk) 22:33, 18 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I've closed this proposal as nominator per the snowball clause. The Xitsonga Wikipedia will be kept open. Thanks for giving your opinion. Regards, Trijnstel 12:16, 4 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]


  1. As nominator. Trijnstel 19:04, 18 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

  1. There is literally no good reason for this. --Node ue 20:29, 19 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

  2. Ditto. --Speedy Gonzalez 03:26, 24 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]
  3. Oppose. One active contributor for a year; maybe one will come next year. I don't see the advantages of closing this project. Amqui 00:42, 31 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]
  4. Oppose. There is no reason to delete such a wiki : localisation is quite good, Main Page is quite correct, a good quantity of real articles... and per Node ue. --Jagwar 交談 homewiki 21:21, 2 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
  5. Better late than Never. I Oppose this proposition and am glad to see it closed. --Thuvack (talk) 10:58, 5 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
