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, will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert 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.
A committee member provided the following comment:
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.

UJung (N), Dor_nis (N), Tamara Ustinova 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.

"Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
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.
Rikpa aka Bafia is a language mainly spoken in the capital of the Mbam and Inoubou Division with the same name in Cameroon's Center region. Another main cluster of speakers can be find in Cameroons capital Yaounde. Ethnologue refers to a census from 1991 which deals with about 60.000 speakers. Due to demographic growth and social demographic factors the number of speakers should reached 120.000 to 150.000.
One of the main targets of the proposal is to provide an online platform, where written texts can be easily published and cross checked. This will help to promote local culture and the use of an own languages for the transfer of information. UJung 09:48, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Native speakers are at the starting point. This request is a practical test of how a wikipedia project can be started and organized for one or more Cameroon languages. The project is part of a workshop series about localization of Cameroon languages. It's called "Going kompyuta"( ). So please be patient and give us a chance. Request for other CM_languages will come soon. UJung 21:14, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Native speakers are now in the group UJung 20:14, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
