A committee member provided the following comment:
Rejected. There is a higher bar against accepting ancient languages, and no activity since the time of this proposal has provided any reason to indicate that this project/language meets that bar. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 14:39, 22 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[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.
"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.
Egyptian is the indigenous language of Egypt and a branch of the Afroasiatic language family. Written records of the Egyptian language have been dated from about 3400 BC, making it one of the oldest recorded languages known. Egyptian was spoken until the late 7th century AD in the form of Coptic. The national language of modern-day Egypt is Egyptian Arabic, which gradually replaced Coptic as the language of daily life in the centuries after the Muslim conquest of Egypt. Coptic is still used as the liturgical language of the Coptic Church. It has a handful of fluent speakers today.
Support 'Support' It does not matter if it's a so called "dead/extinct" language. The rules should be changed that a dead language wiki can be created as long as there are speakers than can speak it fluently as a second language. Kanzler31 02:56, 14 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So we should create Wikipedias that have absolutely zero chance anyone will actually use them as a source of information? Why?--Prosfilaes 22:42, 14 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It shouldn't matter if it's a dead language or not. Old English and Latin are both Dead languages, each with their own wikipedia. As long as their exists a desire to create it, I don't see why there shouldn't be one. --Eblashko 06:04, 06 April 2011 (GMT + 2)
