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.

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.
@Awangba Mangang: I really think you should focus efforts on your Wikipedia and Wiktionary first. Don't bite off too much now. This is especially true of a Wikinews, which is a very effort-intensive type of project. You can always come back later to open a new request once your existing projects are well-established.

Oppose I don't think there would be enough active contributors day by day for this to take off as an active Wikinews. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 15:39, 21 October 2019 (UTC)
