main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Huaylas Quechua
submitted verification final decision
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).

The language committee needs to verify the language is eligible to be approved.

  • Check that the project does not already exist (see list).
  • Obtain an ISO 639 code
  • 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.
  • 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:

@Michael junior obregon pozo: To the best of your knowledge, how mutually intelligible are Ancash Quechua and Huaylas Quechua? StevenJ81 (talk)

  • @StevenJ81: ancash quechua and huaylas quechua are varieties of quechua but ancash quechua is divided in :conchucos and huaylas, huaylas is one variety, and in conchucos are 5 varieties, and I know a lot of native speakers and a speaker of hauylas quechua don't understand conchucos quechua completely and in conchucos quechua uses other diacritics to write.--Michael junior obregon pozo (talk) 20:37, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
