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).
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.
"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.
Officially this language is a Javanese dialect, but since there are so many word entries and grammar that are different with standard Javanese Ngaka language (i.e. you can't find a, it is considered to place this language into the different Wikipedia source. This language (or maybe it is better to call it: sub-language) is spoken natively in the north coast area of East Java, Indonesia, including several regions: Surabaya, Mojokerto, Gresik, Sidoarjo, northern Pasuruan, Lamongan, Jombang, and southern part of Bangkalan, Madura Island. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Arif doudo (talk)
Surabayan Javanese (Suroboyoan) is the local language of Surabaya, Indonesia's second biggest city, and its surroundings. It is traditionally considered a very strong dialect of Javanese, said to be very rude, but it so different from Standard Javanese that the two varieties of the same language are sometimes mutually unintelligible by the younger generation.
Suroboyoan is used in everyday conversation, spoken at home and in the streets, on the market, among friends and family members, and also very frequently written in SMS and chats on the social media. As there is already a Banyumas Javanese edition for Wikipedia, it is just obvious that Suroboyoan should also have a Wikipedia.
Oppose I would assume that many editors on Javanese Wikipedia are from Surabaya, Java's most populous city. Proposing a Basa Surabayaan Wikipedia would be analogous to the Appalachian English Wikipedia proposal. Most speakers would naturally gravitate to the existing version in the prestige dialect that has a thriving ecosystem. Sabon Harshe (talk) 17:12, 24 December 2019 (UTC)
