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, will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert and notify the Board of Trustees for a possible veto.
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.

Files should be uploaded to Commons, but if you want, you can enable local file uploading.
Notes: (1) files on Commons can be used on all wikis; (2) this setting can be changed afterwards; (3) uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info); (4) localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons

Support. Japanese Wikipedia stands so lonely in its language family :( And also the Okinawan test wiki looks so good! --ɴõɴəχүsƚ 12:35, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Weak support I think Okinawan deserves a Wikipedia, but some native speakers should come. Kanzler31 01:42, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
Support once we get more entries in the incubator wiki. -- 李博杰 | —Talkcontribs 02:53, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
Support. It seems, Okinawan wikipedia may work. I think live Okinawan presented by speakers on wikipedia will enrich knowledges of all those (including humble me), who is interested about this language. It would give much greatest advantage, than if it would be used only locally. --Kusurija (talk) 16:08, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Moderate support. As an elementary speaker of Okinawan, I pledge to continue contributing to this project. Apart from principle challenges, such as lack of native speakers, Okinawan is doing quite well on the Internet and is properly standardized. --Wisconsus (talk) 17:42, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
Contra, for now. Although I am a big supporter of Ryukyuan languages, the incubator might as well be empty and there are no native speakers assisting this project. --Node ue 09:31, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
