main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Middle Irish
submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

A committee member provided the following comment:

No content has been created, and the language is a historical language. We will not put historical languages "on hold", so this project is rejected. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 15:30, 6 June 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:

Community
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 Chiclipéid "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace Chiclipéid usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Chiclipéid fóram "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 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Europe/Dublin "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)

Proposal[edit]

I hope that lots of Irish people will be able to visit this wiki. --Little Jackie (talk) 05:55, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

There is an Irish Wikipedia. Wikipedias in dead languages were all created before the modern rules forbidding them; even if LangCom accepts the Ancient Greek Wikipedia, Middle Irish lacks the modern use that Ancient Greek does.--Prosfilaes (talk) 17:35, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
