  • 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:

Discussion[edit]

I request permission for an Old High German Wikipedia to be created on the Incubator. --Horrifico (talk) 22:09, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

I support, a wiki has been created for Old English, why not Old High German or Old Saxon? --Stardsen (talk) 20:44, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Just do it: incubator:Wp/goh, incubator:Wp/goh/Houpitsîta. You [usually?] don't need permission to create an incubator wiki for a language with an ISO code. πr2 (tc) 04:58, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
