Arguments against

  • Oppose Oppose This is one out of 5 proposals for a Gilaki wiki. Though Limburgish has so many proposals too there's a difference. There's no activity and Gilaki does not seem to be ready get for a Wikibooks, a Wikinews, a Wikiquote, a Wiktionary nor a Wikiversity. Maybe this will change in the future but not now. If there's any activity shown, I'll become in favour of this request. --OosWesThoesBes 15:56, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

General discussion

It would be really great, I personally not interested to reading news in any other language, but the caspian one. Since every item in news could refer to local events, So i'll keep working on it by my caspian language Mazanderani. (All caspian languages are mutually intelligble), Also there is no official agency publishing news in wikipedia:Caspian languages, This one Although it is not offcial would be excite!. --Ali 13:51, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

All of you can understand Persian at near-native level. I can't see what is the benefit of having a Wikinews in this language. Even Persian Wikinews is a small project, Gilaki Wikipedia is pretty dead, and you want Gilaki Wikinews? I really can't see.. --Z 18:45, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
