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.
native label (P1705) = Livvinkarjala, Livvin kieli
instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language, definitely endangered language / Karelian
Wikimedia language code (P424) = olo
writing system (P282) = Latin script, Karelian alphabet
number of speakers (P1098) = 30,770
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.
Onegaborg (1), Kaftaj (N), Ilja.mos (N), Mashoi7 (N), Kkirillov (1), Ghiutun (1) 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 to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
"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.
This proposal is to start new language version of Wikipedia for Livvi-Karelian (Olonets Karelian) language (ISO 639-3 code - olo). It was already created earlier a version on Proper Karelian language that has it own ISO 639-3 code - krl and is quite different from Livvi-Karelian. These 2 languages have different dictionaries as well as schoolbooks and can't be considered as one language. Futhermore in disscussions in originally common Karelian version of Wikipedia it was already decided that it will support only Proper Karelian texts. That's why we think that it's better not to mix 2 languages though standing too close but also different from each other. Onegaborg (Talk) 19:46, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
Support I'm thinking we need a separate wiki for Livviks. Using one wiki for different Karelian languages is contrary to the rules of Wikimedia--Kaftaj (talk) 17:32, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Support Very many users in this language/ 20 000--Kaiyr (talk) 06:42, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Support Wikipedia in Livvi-Karelian is an important tool for the revitalization of this language. There is a lot of speakers and potential users of the data. Wikipedia develops language and it's vocabulary and gets language easy of access for users around the world. --Ilja.mos (talk) 23:31, 01 October 2015 (UTC)
All most-used interface messages have been localised into the project's language. There's also many articles and contributing users (incl. native speakers). It is ready to be opened for today. --Ghiutun 10:06, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
