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.
It has been about fifteen years since the former request, and the attempt of establish Classical Japanese Wikipedia is worth discussed again.
Classical Japanese is written language in Japan since Heian Period(794-1185) until 1945. It played the same role as Classical Chinese in Chinese history, and Latin in European history.Many of masterpieces of Japanese literature such as ”The Tale of Genji” were written in it.
Classical Japanese is known a little by many of Japanese people even now because of school education, but it is gradually becoming vulnerable because some influencers support abolition of Japanese and Chinese classics in education recently, so it needs to be preserved. --セリック (talk) 06:48, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Liuxinyu:Old Japanese Wikipedia you introduced to me matches my request. I'll make article there. Thank you. --セリック (talk) 09:59, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Liuxinyu: now you linked from Wp/ojp to here. So is it the same or not? --MF-W 11:46, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In that page the language parameter is written as "Classical Japanese", maybe a grandfathered issue. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 15:08, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Anyway, both Classical Japanese and Old Japanese are in my opinion not eligible due to LPP. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:26, 19 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Comment For now, Old Japanese has a distinct language code, ojp. The last discussion talked about the difference between Old Japanese and Classical Japanese, and according to Wikipedia, Classical Japanese seems to be a language that Old Japanese evolved from. As far as Incubator is concerned, there is no distinction between Old Japanese and Classical Japanese, so I don't think there is a problem with the language code. --Tmv (talk) 09:38, 10 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
