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.

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 Sicilian language is spoken by nearly five million people in Southern Italy, Malta, and the global Italian diaspora. Largely considered a separate language from Italian, it was very influencial in the medieval period, especially during the reign of Emperor Frederick II (Frederick I of Sicily), who was born and raised in the Kingdom of Sicily, spoke the language, promoted it (Creating the Sicilian school of poetry), and had a Sicilian mother. While most Sicilians today are bilingual in Italian, it is distinct from other Romance languages and has millions of native speakers. The Sicilian edition of Wikipedia has nearly 13,000 articles, and with an autonomist as President of Sicily, it's importance may grow in the near future.
SupportSupport The wikipedia in Sicilian already contains in its main page, two updated sections with news from Sicily and Italy and from the world. These sections have been updated by several different users, so there is a critical mass to create and maintain a wikinews in Sicilian. The wikipedai also contain an archive of news from November 2004 to nowdays. --Gmelfi 18:44, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
SupportSupport The idea to carry out the wikinews in sicilian is optimal. I am in agreement for this initiative.--Santu 20:45, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
SupportSupport Thank you to those who have put this proposal forward. As has already been mentioned by Gmelfi (a bureaucrat on scn.wiki), we have kept up a regular news update on the Sicilian langauge wikipedia since late 2004 when scn.wiki was first created. A complete archive is available since that time, as such, this initiative seems but a small step from where we find ourselves today on scn.wiki. pippudoz - (waarom? jus'b'coz!) 10:02, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Currently 100.00% of the MediaWiki messages and 96.04% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation projects have been localised. Localisation of these messages is a requirement before your request is finally assessed. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 10:56, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
