It was rejected since in historical languages, only Wikisource projects can maybe be eligible per LPP. --MF-W 15:38, 23 January 2014 (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.
"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.
No new dead language projects will be created, but you can contribute to incubator:Wp/enm (in no particular period of ME) or ang: (in Old English). PiRSquared17 (talk) 12:17, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
The Old English Wikipedia is in a completely different language which is called by experts "Anglo-Saxon", or more preferably, "old-Saxon". Since modern English isn't based on Bristol dialect, Anglo-saxon would seem alian to a modern English speaker compared to Early Modern English, which has lost inflections and influxed by old norse words.

I know they are different languages. And, by the way, isn't Old Saxon (osx) different from Anglo-Saxon/Old English (ang)? At least according to ISO it is. They are both Ingvaeonic though. PiRSquared17 (talk) 13:07, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
The ISO codes given by the page creator (eme, ea) are non-existant or assigned to different languages. --MF-W 21:44, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: enm is a valid language code, but refers to all time periods of Middle English. Anyway this will be rejected as even Ancient Greek was. PiRSquared17 (talk) 21:48, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
bug 55491 That is possible, but I referred to the codes given by the proposer. --MF-W 23:32, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
I figured out about the new policy a while ago, and I'm kinda pissed.. Although I truely think Early Middle English deserves at the very least a mentioning on Wikipedia, as it has a community dedicated for it englesaxe and Ancient Greek already has a nice article about it and is thoroughly studied, the early period of middle english is usualy looked over by scholars and doesnt't even have a single mentioning of it on the English Language article. --User:Eitansh (talk) 12:17, 13 November 2013 (UTC) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk)
