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.
I want to ask Reality006. Why he can't support to create Malay Wikinews? Md. Farhan 04:47, 22 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think there's a lot of active Wikinews project in South-East Asian languages, and I am quite surprised to see ms community going with this effort. Do you think that there would be a sustainable contributor base for this project, should it be approved? dwf² (runding) 13:52, 2 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello dwf², yes I believe we can. Currently we have active editors especially Izington (Fab) who led the revival of Wikiberita project and steadily pumping out new articles. We have member like EmpAhmadK who specialize with politics especially local ones, and myself, with video games affairs as well as International COVID-19 section. SNN95 meanwhile focused on entertainment section. With such activity, I believe we can get the recognition we long wanted to kickstart freelancing online journalism that is accessible to all Malay speakers. If you can help support us too, it would be great. Check out https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wn/ms/Laman_Utama for the activity there. -Ricky250 (talk) 11:02, 28 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
