Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Chakma

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
submitted verification final decision

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 and will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert.

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:

Please contribute to the test project on Incubator. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 15:56, 21 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
  • 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:

Project namespace usually the same as the project name

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 This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone India/Kolkata "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit Phabricator task. It will include everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings. After creating the task, add a link to the comment.



Hello, I would like to add Chakma Language in Wiktionary to translate our Chakma Language. Our Chakma Language are not in the language list in your wiki. Chakma locale is already included in recent Unicode CLDR release- V31 . Now our Chakma language are in developing stage. So please provide us exposure from your kind end to develop our language. 11:36, 8 August 2017 (UTC)Sarojchakma (talk)

Are you asking for a Wiktionary or a Wikipedia? Your comment mentions Wiktionary (a dictionary), but this request is for a Wikipedia (an encyclopedia). Wikipedia is more usual, but a Wiktionary is not a bad first Wiki, in my opinion.--Prosfilaes (talk) 07:33, 10 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Wondering if splitting to a Wikipedia one and Wiktionary one is accepted or not? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:56, 10 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Wikipedia its not an issue. Description of Chakma Language are already there. You can see reference, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakma_language, I want to add Chakma Language in Wiktionary. So that our Chakma language will developed in next level, hence our Chakma Language are in developing stage. We need platform to develop our Language. Hope Wiki will help for it. Sarojchakma (talk)
@Sarojchakma: So you don't oppose to split requests? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 11:58, 18 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
@Liuxinyu970226: Yes I am accepting to split Wikipedia and Wiktionary. As my knowledge I think that 2(two) are different thing. Wiktionary is for developing dictionary for a specific language. So I want to add data in Wiktionary. Sarojchakma (talk) 15:41, 18 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
So is there anyone interested in a Chakma Wikipedia, because Sarojchakma seems only interested in creating a Wiktionary.--Prosfilaes (talk) 13:08, 19 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Prosfilaes: I would like to spare some time in Chakma wikipedia. There are some others also who are waiting to help us a Chakma Wikipedia. Is there any idea how to do that? Schakma94
