The language under this name doesn't exist. --Millosh (talk) 23:54, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
  • 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
Proposal
Language code bf (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Bofonian Language name in English
Language name bofonisk Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Language Wikidata item NA Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.
Community
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.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name Wikipedio "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads no 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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:... 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Continent/City "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Discussion[edit]

This will not be accepted unless some explanation about the language is provided. See also: User_talk:MF-Warburg#Bofonian. πr2 (t • c) 23:32, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, see also Requests for new languages/Bofonian. --MF-W 00:47, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
  • @MF-Warburg: Will this page be deleted or would you close it as rejected? --Jura1 (talk) 07:53, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Why should it be deleted? --MF-W 19:49, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
      • If there is no trace of the language? Just as Lollion, Protest, Plisakart' and Iirkenstagn. --Jura1 (talk) 20:02, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm also wondering what's this language? Maybe a vandal request (like Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Hunnic 2)? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 12:08, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
The given ISO code bf is not valid, cf. http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=bf --Baba Tabita (talk) 12:35, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
