Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Angkola

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
submitted verification final decision
Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).

The language committee needs to verify the language is eligible to be approved.

  • Check that the project does not already exist (see list).
  • Obtain an ISO 639 code
  • Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
  • Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.
  • 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

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 Wikipedia This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Indonesia "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces suku angkola For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Wikipedia Anything else that should be set

From @Ilmardalimunthe: Bahasa Angkola adalah salah satu bahasa daerah yang terutama dipertuturkan di daerah Tapanuli bagian Selatan, meliputi Tapanuli Selatan, Padangsidimpuan, Padang Lawas Utara, Padang Lawas, dan sebagian kecil Mandailing natal, Sumatra Utara, Indonesia. Bahasa Angkola termasuk dalam rumpun bahasa Angkolanesia, dan merupakan bagian dari kelompok bahasa-bahasa sansekerta. Bahasa Angkola adalah bahasa yang paling mirip dengan bahasa mandailing, di samping letak geografis yang berdekatan, bahasa Angkola sedikit lebih lembut intonasinya daripada bahasa mandailing dan juga memiliki kemiripan dengan bahasa Mandailing,cuma perbedaan mendasar terletak pada intonasi Angkola yang lebih tegas dibandingkan Mandailing. Kemiripan antara Bahasa Angkola dengan Mandailing dipengaruhi oleh domisilinya yang berdekatan dan saling mendukungadat istiadat budayabya mendekatia adat istiadat mengikutiajaran agama islam.
