Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).
Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.
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.
The Kupang Malay language is the language of the Timor Island, Flores Island, Sumba Island, Alor Island, Sabu Island, Rote Island and in the Central of Maluku. Now the language is 500,000 spokers around the West Timor, Flores Island, Sumba Island, Alor Island, Sabu Island, Rote Island and in the Central of Maluku and in the East Timor country. This language is used when Written a SMS in Social Media, public information, in school, work and many of them. Its making the Wikinews language of this language is the good idea. Because in the South of East Nusa Tenggara is the Australia and in East of East Nusa Tenggara is the East Timor. And their education program quality is so low, because the language its so different with Malay. And East Nusa Tenggara is the place of Komodo Island. And its will be a news to translate into the Kupang Malay language.
Comment. Given that the Wikipedia for this language is nowhere close to being approved (the test wiki only having 6 pages, with Semuel Tahun being the only editor making non-trivial contributions), I don't see this Wikinews request going anywhere any time soon. - dcljr (talk) 00:09, 23 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I still think a project can't be maintained just by one man, the requestor should indeed invite users live in Kupang to contribute, even they can only contribute one or two pages. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:27, 28 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Wikinews is one of the least successful wikiprojects, both in not getting critical mass and in that the needed critical mass is so much higher than for other projects. There's no way that a language community that's still working on the critical mass for a Wikipedia can or should start a Wikinews.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:16, 6 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
