main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Ingush
submitted verification final decision
Application-certificate.svg This proposal has been approved.
The Board of Trustees and language committee have deemed that there is sufficient grounds and community to create the new language project.

A committee member provided the following comment:

This project is approved. See phabricator:T184374. Please continue to contribute to the test project on Incubator until the wiki is created. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 16:49, 7 January 2018 (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 inh (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Ingush Language name in English
Language name ГӀалгӀай 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 Q33509 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Ingush
  • native label (P1705) = ГӀалгӀай мотт
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language / Nakh languages
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = inh
  • writing system (P282) = Cyrillic script
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 322,900


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 Adam-Yourist (N), ElizaMag (N), Дагиров Умар (N), Илья Драконов, Tusholi (N), Assiyala (N), Zeli Veitam (N), Malha Aza (N)
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 Википеди "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace Википеди usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Википеди ювцар "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads no 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 File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-inh.png 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Europe/Moscow "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)

Arguments against[edit]

General discussion[edit]

  • Certainly a legitimate proposal, however, after three weeks, there is still no content in the test project. Looks like the proponents have lost interest. --Johannes Rohr 13:36, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
  • The interest of cause is not lost and hardly will be. Certainly the significant progress will be in the middle of July (my vacation time, maybe not too fast but I do not consider this as a one day project). In the time before this the page will be build step-by-step. --Tagir Aushev 00:23, 4 May 2007 (CEST)
  • I would support this idea if there were at least 20 articles in the test project. Now I am not sure whether there are people who would contribute. --Wisconsus 15:19, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Over the past few months I am actively working in this test wiki. I will be glad of help from the active participants. – Adam-Yourist (talk)

localisation information[edit]

  • Currently 19.84% of the most often used messages have been localised.. Localisation is a requirement for a new language. GerardM 12:56, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Currently 19.96% of the most used MediaWiki messages have been localised. Localisation of these messages is a requirement before your request is finally assessed. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 12:04, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
