main page Request for a new language edition: Wikinews Thai
submitted verification final decision
Applications-system.svg 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.

Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval.

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.

A committee member provided the following comment:

Eligible language. You are encouraged to contribute on incubator:Wn/th. --Millosh (talk) 16:55, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
  • 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.
  • The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
  • The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:

Reason to reopen Thai Wikinews[edit]

Because ago Wikinews project had offered to temporarily close.Because There is no any movement from Wikipedia at one. But today Wikipedia user want present information news again In addition,can also create neutrality of news thai and choice to read news. I user:Pitpisit The proposal for a project Wikinews again. (Text are from User:B20180 in this page.)

In the past, Thai Wikinews has been voted to shut down due to inactivity. However, nowadays many users of Thai wikipdia demand to present the content in the news format. Therefore, in order to reduce the problem of news-format content in Thai Wikipedia and to utilise those contents, the Thai Wikinews project should be reopened. --Pilarbini (talk) 13:12, 22 March 2016 (UTC) (Translated from User:B20180 in this page.)
