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.
instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language, definitely endangered language / Rhaeto-Romance languages
Wikimedia language code (P424) = lld
writing system (P282) = Latin script
number of speakers (P1098) = 30,000
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.

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.
Ciao Skafa! Do you know any native speakers who are interested in writing a Wikipedia in Ladin? In late summer, I wrote more than twenty mails to organizations like the ones you're mentioning above and got only one or two replies. That's why I did not post a request for a Wikipedia in Ladin back then, because I think it's useless if nobody wants to write any articles... Arbeo 16:22, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
Needless to say that I'm generally supporting the idea. I really like Südtirol and I'd love to see an active Wikipedia in that beautiful ancient mountain language. After all, that's why I created the test wiki back then. Arbeo 19:12, 4 January 2006 (UTC)
Strong support Creation of this wikipedia is a must, of course. However, I am not a native speaker, nor am I fluent in this language. Nevertheless I do appreciate Ladin test-wikipedia, and I plan extracting some papers (say, at least...one paper) about this tongue for Lombard wikipedia. Also, since I am fluent in Lombard, I could be a writer for lld, after studying a little bit. You could also consider the issue of translating from Friulan and Rumantsch Grischun. This wikipedia is already 'virtually' alive in Lombard wikipedia's home page! Clamengh 19:22, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
Support, but enough native or advanced speakers must be found. Hégésippe | ±Θ± 18:57, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
Hello, I have sent again some e-mails. Let's hope! Clamengh 17:13, 07 June 2006 (UTC+2)
(N) Hi, I am Badiot native. I support this project (referred me by user:Clamengh). Nevertheless, I have been living in Switzerland (Genève and Ticino) for 40 years, so I am afraid this support be merely formal. But I could re-improve my Ladin tongue. Sincerely yours, --Badiot 09:09, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
(N) Comme ci-dessus. Mais: Toulouse, France, et non Suisse. Désolé pour ne pas parler Anglais, --Aigle 10:19, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
(N) Hi, I am Gardenese Ladin native speaker and I support the project. I wrote some stubs in gardenese variant of Ladin and I wanted to know if someone is still working on this project - Chichemei"

Comment This request is opened 12 years, what's the reason that langcom is still having no decisions? Would this request be verified (or even approved)? rejected? or on hold? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 13:13, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Strong support Un gruppo di madrelingua ladini ha promesso di dare i propri contibuti--Mizardellorsa (talk) 14:11, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Strong support: Of course, Ladin is a language. From Trentino convinced approval. --Foghe (talk) 12:37, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
Comment My name is Alexander Senoner and I am a native speaker of Ladin. I am willing to support this project by starting to write 1-2 articles a day and so slowly building up the Ladin Wikipedia. My close friend Damian (N) will help with this project. Is there any way this project can be activated in the next few days? --Asenoner (talk) 13:45, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
Langcom has now approved the creation of the wiki. User:Starladin, User:Mizardellorsa, User:Spinademul, et al.: Can you please check if the data in the table at the top of this page (project name, namespace, logo, etc.) are correct? Then we can proceed to request the creation of the wiki. I removed the following comment from the "additional settings":
I think that like for the Chinese Wikipedia, where there is a drop-down to choose pages written in Taiwanese Chinese, Hong Kong Chinese, simplified etc, here there should be a drop-down where one can choose between texts in the Ladin of Gherdëina, badiot and perhaps fascian etc.
This is because there is no unified Ladin language, but there are a number of different variations of it.
I suppose this means something like a language converter. That would need to be solved separately. --MF-W 16:47, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
