submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

A committee member provided the following comment:

An extinct language. If native speakers appear, please make another proposal. --Millosh (talk) 05:17, 29 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 dlm (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Dalmatian Language name in English
Language name Dalmata 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 Q35527 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Dalmatian
  • native label (P1705) =
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = dead language, extinct language, unwritten language / Eastern Romance languages
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) =
  • writing system (P282) =
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 0


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 Wikipédia "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 yes 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 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Europe/Zagreb "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)

Comments/Questions[edit]

Support[edit]

  • Dalmatian language is being revived , and now there is 10-20 speakers worldwide and this number would grow.

  • The Dalmatian language is allegedly reviving (see here) and if it is true I support the proposal. I think the chances to be opened are small for this wiki but everything is possible. --Ghiutun 21:35, 19 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Yes, Dalmation language is spoken by around 20 people and one hundred more have some knowledge of that language. --Humberto del Torrejón (talk) 03:14, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
