This language has been verified as eligible. The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.
If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.
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.
"Wikinews talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin"). Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
SupportStrong support- yup one of the largest spoken languages in the world deserves its own wikinews since India and china will one day exceed USA and Britain in terms of providing news coverage/internet development and this will be a great start..--Cometstyles 08:07, 22 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
SupportSupportAlready said, but I will repeat it, one of the most spoken languages in the world. Will be very useful someday. (Red4tribe 17:03, 23 April 2008 (UTC))Reply[reply]
Support'Support' Hindi wiki-community is expanding very rapidly. Also, Hindi is one of the largest languages of the world.--Eukesh 17:43, 9 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
SupportFull Support The Chinese Wikinews has done well - Hindi has the potential to do the same. This would also be used by Non Resident Indians who reside all around the world, meaning not just Indian Nationals will benefit. --RaviC
SupportFull Support - One of the major world languages should have indeed have a WikiNews. --Jeroen 02:15, 21 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oppose. I strongly believe that the Hindi Wikinews will not have a strong and permanent editor base as enjoyed by the Hindi Wikipedia. Wikinews is a project which requires constant update and new articles should be reviewed and published immediately, which in fact requires a large no. of editors. There is no proof that it will be able to overcome the hurdles faced by the English Wikinews. Please take a look at an article published in the Wikipedia Signposthere. - Jayadevp13 (talk) 05:47, 19 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
