Requests for new languages/Wikinews Vietnamese

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

main page Request for a new language edition: Wikinews Vietnamese
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 and notify the Board of Trustees for a possible veto.

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.
  • 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:
What Value Example / Explanation
Language code vi (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Vietnamese Language name in English
Language name Tiếng Việt Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Language Wikidata item Q9199 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Vietnamese
  • native label (P1705) = Tiếng Việt
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language / Vietic languages, Sino-Xenic pronunciation
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = vi
  • writing system (P282) = Vietnamese alphabet, chữ Nôm, Vietnamese Braille
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 68,058,620±1

Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.
Community Kanzler31 (P), Ma2nschaft (N), Trần Nguyễn Minh Huy (N), Kimkha (N), Tranminh360 (N), Zia demion (N), Beyoncetan (N), Cheers! (N)
You can optionally list your user name if you are an active contributor to the test wiki. Add "N" next to your name if you are a native speaker of this language.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Project name Wikinews "Wikinews" in your language
Project namespace Wikinews usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wikinews talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads yes 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.
Optional settings
Project logo 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Asia/Hanoi "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)


Đây là đề nghị chính thức mở cửa phiên bản tiếng Việt của Wikinews, một nguồn tin tức wiki có nội dung mở. Wikinews tiếng Việt hiện đang được thử nghiệm.

The Vietnamese Wikipedia is one of the largest Wikipedias and the incubator project for Wikinews is very active. It is not to mention that Vietnamese has more than 80 million speakers worldwide. I am very appalled that no request has been made despite the dynamism of the incubation project.

Wikipedia tiếng Việt là một trong những Wikipedia lớn nhất. Và dự án Incubator của Wikinews rất tích cực. Vả lại tiếng Việt có hơn 80 triệu người nói trên khắp thế giới. Tôi rất ngạc nhiên rằng chưa có ai yêu cầu điều này mặc dù dự án thử nghiệm rất tích cực.


Arguments in favor / ủng hộ[edit]

Please don't just say "support", this will not help to create the Vietnamese Wikinews. Instead, work on the test wiki at Incubator. If it is active enough, it will be approved. SPQRobin (talk) 12:25, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Xin đừng chỉ nói "ủng hộ", làm như vậy sẽ không giúp tạo ra Wikinews tiếng Việt. Thay vào đó, hãy đóng góp vào wiki thử nghiệm tại Incubator. Nếu nó đủ tích cực, nó sẽ được chấp nhận. SPQRobin (talk) 12:25, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Support - Vietnamese is a language that indeed has many speakers. It has a strong community on Wikipedia and with the huge amount of articles on their own Wikipedia, Wikinews would be good for this language.--Anton 008 10:20, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Arguments against / phản đối[edit]

  • Against Es.ntp 08:37, 10 April 2011 (UTC) because personally I find there are many many articles which are not so good eventually very bad and comprises of just a few words. Wikipedia tiếng Việt should be well improved before another Wiki Project launched. Es.ntp 15:10, 12 April 2011 (UTC).
  • Against --Abeille ouvrière 05:01, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
    Reason? Don't forget Vietnamese Wikipedia, a big Wikipedia had over 200.000 articles --minhhuy*= 12:12, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Against. I believe that Vietnamese Wikinews will be used by some people as a place for telling the bad things about Vietnamese government, as they did in many other wikimedia's project. Trannhatanh89 14:34, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
    Evidence? --minhhuy*= 01:46, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
    What's wromg with that? 15:30, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

When to approve?[edit]

I think this project has more activities now, so the possibility of approval can be considered. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:02, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

@StevenJ81: What's your idea on this? -- 03:15, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
