Arguments in favour[edit]

Arguments against[edit]

Vous voulez parler de l'Honorable Anonyme « Hercule » ; il est en effet remarquablement incompétent, mais dire qu'il ne connaît pas un mot de wu est très exagéré ; il sait au moins «  »… (Et cette intervention est le summum de son activité sur « wuu ». Ça mérite bien le statut d'administrateur et de bureaucrate !) --Budelberger 10:53, 22 December 2008 (UTC) ().[reply]
i know hes there for technical support,
Is deleting templates – because he doesn't understand a sinogram but « 水 » – a « still (…) in fact » « technical support » ?… --Budelberger 22:53, 22 December 2008 (UTC) ().[reply]
no need to get pissed off.
Comme vous dites.

i said msuker has a 3 year old logic, not hercule.大天王皇子 21:26, 22 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I was not talking about Msuker. --Budelberger 22:53, 22 December 2008 (UTC) ().[reply]
, you don't understand, i was explaining to Msuker on how people can edit on wikipedias in languages that they don't know.大天王皇子 03:23, 23 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
and are you aware i was one of the people who voted him to bearacrat?大天王皇子 03:53, 23 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
You did it, and you did it well ; we are a What a wonderful World where thanks to you Illiterates and undedeloped Brains can manage a top-level career. --Budelberger 17:31, 25 December 2008 (UTC) ().[reply]
according to your logic, shizhao, we will have to close classical chinese wikipedia because zh-wikipedia can handle classical chinese.大天王皇子 21:28, 22 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
The open or closure of any project is not decided by one person only. The fact is that Only Wikisource wikis in ancient or historical languages are accepted, so this request could be closed right now. The open or closure of Classical Chinese Wikipedia depends on demands and requests, since Classical Chinese Wikipedia was created before this language policy is imposed. -Hello World! 19:07, 23 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I agree with Shizhao.Skjackey tse 10:05, 26 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

  • Please, close this request. There is not one person in the world who can write wikibooks in Classical Chinese. A wikisource is more viable. --Bloodmerchant 19:38, 7 July 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • I concur with Bloodmerchant. I don't see this as a feasible proposal due to the fact that no one can write wikibooks in this language.
