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 22:02:35, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Support (I'd very much like to... ) but first of all, explain us what do you mean by Berber. Kabyle ? Chaouia ? Tarifit ? Tashelkhit ? Tamazhikht (marocan) ? Tamasheq ? Sroulik 16:41, 19 September 2006 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose. Like Sroulik above, I support Wikipedias for individual Berber languages but a pan-Berber Wikipedia is never going to work (different orthographies, not all Berber languages are mutually intelligible, many are in fact sufficiently different to justify different Wikipedia editions). — mark 20:03, 3 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose. I also oppose, it's going to be a big mess if a Targui and a riffian try to contribute in the same article!! multiple Berber wikipedias is much more suitable Toira
