submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been closed as part of a reform of the request process.
This request has not necessarily been rejected, and new requests are welcome. This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 22:02:58, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose. A fictional language is not adequate for writing non-fictional literature (an encyclopedia). Arbeo 16:52, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Al Bhed is merely a 1-to-1 code for English (similar in many ways to Pig Latin). Of course, that could be an advantage too: all you need to do is to run the entire content of wikipedia.en through a program that changes each character into its corresponding Al Bhed character, and voilà, you have an Al Bhed Wikipedia with over one million articles! But who is going to do that, and more importantly, who is waiting for it? --IJzeren Jan 12:53, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
