Someone understanding the Kazakh (kk) language (Қазақ тілі) should evaluate pages at the main namespace from the kk-Wikibooks (қазақ Уикикітап) to decide whether they are appropriate for the project. I previously raised the content issue at kk-Wikipedia (қазақ Уикипедия), where there were very few responses. Then I raised the same issue at kk-wikibooks, whose Village pump has been rarely visited, and then Meta-wiki's Talk:Language committee, where I was advised to contact the stewards first if there were no responses at Kazakh-language projects.

kk-Wikibooks currently lacks local administrators and bureaucrats, so I made two requests (first, second) at Steward requests/Miscellaneous. The stewards cannot understand the language; at least they deleted only copyright infringement material and test pages per those requests.

I'm also concerned about contributions by one user Hafizman, including created pages, like b:kk:Махмұд әл-Қадр: Мақсатқа жету теориясы, b:kk:Махмұд әл-Қадр: Саған ғашық көңілім, b:kk:Бәдауи әл-Құдус діні, and b:kk:Махмұд әл-Қадрдің нақыл сөздері (which was blanked from the previous revision). They appear to be either self-promotional, out of the project's scope (i.e. not educational material), or something I could not describe well, considering that I don't understand the language as well. Same may be said about contributions by user Бауыржан Жақсылық, including page creations. Maybe I could be wrong about my concerns. However, the community of kk-wikibooks seems to have been either nonexistent or less than active. Moreover, I don't believe that raising the concerns (again) at kk-Wikipedia would help much, considering very little response to one thread that I created.

I hope that creating this subpage would attract Kazakh users, including ones who can also understand English language. George Ho (talk) 06:31, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Added history of previous closure requests. Edit: Note that this is not a closure request, which can be formally done at Proposals for closing projects. George Ho (talk) 06:41, 12 December 2018 (UTC); edited, 06:43, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
