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.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

The language proposal policy requires that a language have living native communities to serve as the wiki's audience and editing community. Old Georgian is classified by ISO 639-3 as "historical", and it has no living native communities. Unfortunately, this request does not meet the prerequisites for eligibility. —Pathoschild 19:17:52, 07 January 2009 (UTC)

Where has this been verified as eligible? And why are you classifying yourself as native speaker of Old Georgian? Nobody speaks Old Georgian any more. --Thogo (talk) 12:42, 10 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
