This language has been verified as eligible. The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.
Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval and will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert.
If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.
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.
"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.
Es gibt noch keine Enzyklopädie in die Mentawei Sprache. Es wird sicherlich ein gutes Projekt werden. Päge bintën 09:44, 1 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is one of the few coded languages I speak well enough for a Wikipedia which hasn't got a Wikipedia yet. The other possibility was Karaim. --OosWesThoesBes 15:07, 26 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Obviously there is no interested community. --Thogo (talk) 08:25, 26 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why not? I currently have got contact with native speakers and I will show them the advantages of a Wikipedia. They might be interested, and don't forget me :) --OosWesThoesBes 15:06, 26 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Weakly against. Is there already standard Mentawainese writing? Is there any literature written in Mentawainese? I will support wiktionary for the language, but not wikipedia. Kembangraps 09:12, 22 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Currently 35.76% 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 12:20, 12 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
