main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Lishan Didan
submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
While this request has technically been rejected, in reality this is a request that has been sitting open or on hold for a long time with little evidence of a community coming together to build a project. If a community comes together in the future and makes a new request, LangCom would consider that new request without prejudice.

  • 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 trg (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...

  • en label = Lishán Didán
  • native label (P1705) =
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language / Northeastern Neo-Aramaic
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) =
  • writing system (P282) = Hebrew script based alphabet
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 4,378


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.
Directionality no indication Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "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:... This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Tel Aviv "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Proposal[edit]

I think for middle asian Jewish creating a Lishán Didán Wikipedia would be love. Can we discuss it? --111.30.229.151 09:09, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Wikipedia claims 4,500 speakers for Lishán Didán. That seems a little low for a viable Wikipedia.--Prosfilaes (talk) 02:50, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
Pinging @Amire80: since this language affects Israel. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:43, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
