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

The following discussion is closed.

I think this player in Wikimedia Monopoly game should go to jail. Do not collect $200, and be locked there due to only having 4 pages and no recent edits. I know I'm pushing African languages to the limit, but this is a serious closure. I-20the highway 16:34, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Extra info: No recent edits except by Pathoschild, and that is for global CSS/JS/user pages. I-20the highway 22:51, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
More info is found on OosWesThoesBes' reason. I-20the highway 22:54, 21 July 2010 (UTC)


  1. No content, no activity; that wiki is dead. I think it is better to put it back to the incubator. --dferg ☎ talk 19:52, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
  2. No Zulu content on the main page, no constructive edits and only two legitimate pages: [1], [2]. The other two are the main page and an English redirect to the main page. --OosWesThoesBes 20:06, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
  3. Support per above--Andrijko Z. 18:22, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
  4. Support No content, no activity, as already ponted out. Bogorm 08:54, 5 October 2010 (UTC)


  1. Oppose I'd give it a chance. Kanzler31 21:45, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
    Please note that a wikibooks needs more effort than a wikipedia. Zu.wp doesn't have a community and is filled with spam. We should give them a chance to make something of it instead of spreading zulu projects all over. At the moment they are not yet ready for a Wikibooks. --OosWesThoesBes 19:10, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
    I suppose you may have a point. We may need to put it in the incubator. Kanzler31 20:07, 27 July 2010 (UTC)


  • You have to notify the local community. PiRSquared17 16:37, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
    Sorry, I didn't see that. PiRSquared17 16:38, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
    I did that on the "Current events" page. I-20the highway 16:46, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
    I know. I looked a minute before you put it there. PiRSquared17 16:47, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
  • With all due respect, a more serious rationale would be appreciated. Also a link to the project in question, to avoid having to guess what project code is or having to search it on Special:SiteMatrix. Thanks, --dferg ☎ talk 19:54, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I have notified w:zu: and PiR did wikt:zu:. There happens to be a small amount of editors on the Wikipedia, so something might change. I-20the highway 00:06, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
    I don't think that there are any regular editors of zuwikt. πr2 (talk · contributions) 01:19, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
