This proposal has been rejected. While this request has technically been rejected, in reality this is a request that has been sitting open or on hold for a long time with little evidence of a community coming together to build a project. If a community comes together in the future and makes a new request, LangCom would consider that new request without prejudice.

No test was ever created. If one is created in the future, please apply again. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:55, 4 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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.
I propose that Irish Wikinews because I think it would be great project and would show news in Irish instead of going to the English Wikinews to find news and can contribute in there own language 184.108.40.206 20:00, 2 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oppose Wikinews is generally a weak project, starting a version in a language that can produce today only 36 logged actions on local Wikipedia and a total of about 46,000 articles is simply to create a zombie project, Wikimedia doesn't need it now. --Gce (talk) 18:02, 7 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
