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.
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
Support It is taking too long for the Wikimedia Foundation to decide the issue. I hope this wiki will be approved soon. --Wikipean (talk) 10:56, 15 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Support The test wiki seems fairly developed. Regarding the Okinawan language itself, there are regional varieties but standardization seems to be consistent enough. Most internet sources use the Shuri-Naha dialect and in real life, it has the most speakers. I hope Wikipedia will accept an Okinawan version in the near future. — Coastaline (talk) 06:22, 24 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
Contra: I am a supporter, but still this test project is stopping now. --Garamtalk 19:45, 13 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There are users who are active, but they are few and far between. A wiki with no users is rough.--Tmv (talk) 01:41, 7 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
