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.
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.
"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.
In a few weeks' time, there will be a long summer school by the Federal University of the State of Amazonia, in its local São Gabriel da Cachoeira campus, which will have as attendants teachers that are native speakers of, among others, Baniwa. This request for the creation of a Baniwa Wikipedia comes in this context, as it will be the perfect opportunity to gather the local community of people with interest in creating, maintaining and using a Wikipedia for Educational and knowledge-building purposes. Both the organizers, teachers and member of the local community showed great interest in the possibility of having such a powerful tool at their disposal. Alongside with this, having a collaborative project like a Wikipedia would be the perfect means to attain common grounds for a more fixed spelling. Pastorica 07:01, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
