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.
Actually, the Gayo language has ISO 639-3 code which is gay and already have its incubator here. But as in the previous discussion
here, naming using that domain is not a good idea. On the contrary, it can make the speakers depressed. Therefore, I made a new proposal to use the domain gayo instead of gay. I think gayo would be a fine code, though there gay.wikipedia.org ought to automatically redirect or at least contain a prominent pointer of some sort. のここり ♫ 08:16, 5 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Hello @N219:, unfortunatelly policy does not allow other codes if ISO code can be used. Please withdraw your suggestion, thx. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 21:33, 6 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I don't see why this exception couldn't be made, just like Wawa will probably get wawa instead of www, if it ever gets a project. It's not an active concern; the Incubator shows little chance this could be a WP anytime soon. But should that change, this seems like an entirely reasonable case for an exception.--Prosfilaes (talk) 05:53, 7 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
And? Wawa and Gayo both have valid ISO 639-3 codes. LPP says nothing about what the project URL must be.--Prosfilaes (talk) 17:54, 7 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Prosfilaes: For Wawa, if one day their community is active, moving of all the Wikimedia sites' portal pages can be considered, I would therefore say that Multilingual Wikisource can keep use wikisource.org, since therefore www.wikipedia.org should move to wikipedia.org, and so on. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:31, 20 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
On one hand, we can break the Internet standard that www.x.tld is the main website under x.tld, move a half-dozen sites, and possibly confuse a bunch of people; on the other hand, we can, like we have several times before, place a wiki under a name not strictly conforming to ISO 639-3, in a way that will likely confuse no one. I can't say I understand your insistence on option one.--Prosfilaes (talk) 03:39, 21 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Prosfilaes: Well, are Ipulo users hating to start incubator projects just because their ISO code is iso639-3:ass? Surely there doesn't seem to have Ipulo Wikimedia users, but are we asking the future Ipulo users (if one day) to avoid using it? Clearly-than-god no. "www." isn't really needed for all websites, there are several sites e.g. Vimeo which don't use "www." prefixes, because they want to make language neutral environment even for Wawa users. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:16, 30 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Please stop pinging me. It's not urgent in any way. Ipulo seems quite moot, as an isolated language with 2,500 speakers, but if there are Ipulo users, and they don't want their code to be "ass", then I don't see any reason why accommodations can't be made. Just like I don't see why accommodations can't be made for Gayo and Wawa.--Prosfilaes (talk) 02:11, 30 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Note that the ISO 639-6 is abandoned now. So, don't expect that Wawa can have test wiki, it won't, really won't. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 10:07, 7 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Are you saying that the Wawa language couldn't have a test-project on Incubator? If so, please stop spreading such nonsense immediately. --MF-W 22:25, 2 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
