The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.

Files should be uploaded to Commons, but if you want, you can enable local file uploading.
Notes: (1) files on Commons can be used on all wikis; (2) this setting can be changed afterwards; (3) uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info); (4) localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons

I would like to be able to add labels and descriptions to Wikidata in Cape Verdean Creole (I'm a native speaker), and currently if I try it, Wikidata gives me an error saying the language code 'kea' is not recognized. --Waldir (talk) 17:43, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
This proposal seems to be misplaced. It is not a request for a new project. PiRSquared17 (talk) 17:49, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
I know, I was puzzled myself, but GerardM told me this was the way to do it (i.e. to request support for a new language in Wikidata). --Waldir (talk) 17:59, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Since he's on LangCom, I guess he's right about this, but it is a strange place to request it. According to this blog post, any language with an ISO 639-3 code is permitted; I do not see the need for a Meta request. PiRSquared17 (talk) 18:20, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
In principle any language with an ISO-639-3 code is eligible however, it still requires the language to be considered eligible. A language will not be enabled only because someone has an interest in it. The objective is to prevent the "wealth" of new languages that made Wikipedia look like a stamp collection.

If the proposal is misplaced here, then where is the right place? Many months ago I tried to ask for Northern Thai to be added for Wikidata at Talk:Language committee, but it was completely ignored there as well. Ahoerstemeier (talk) 14:19, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
