An extinct proto-language. --Millosh (talk) 07:41, 29 January 2017 (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.
instance/subclass (P31/P279) = extinct language / East Slavic languages
Wikimedia language code (P424) =
writing system (P282) = Cyrillic script
number of speakers (P1098) = 0±0
Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.

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
Wikipedia has almost no meaningful contents - most of them are spam or gibberish. --22.214.171.124 07:45, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
Also,Wikipedia's data was not imported to incubator. --126.96.36.199 07:46, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
They are not all meaningless - considering that this request is also comes with importing Wikimedia's data to Wikipedia, we don't have to prepare contents to be imported. --2A01:7B8:2011:F201:0:0:7A9:ADAB 05:50, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
Do you have Wikipedia's content with XML files? For not importing,as you know,Exporting is basic for import. If not,we cannot import it. And wikipedia does not allow exporting.
And,Incubator test wiki has only >50 articles. We need more content and more contributors. Not enough for now. --188.8.131.52 12:47, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
In orv-wikipedia, there is not enough templates. We should import templates first.--184.108.40.206 12:47, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
Dear 220.127.116.11, is this project will be categorized in this category? --18.104.22.168 05:45, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
No, because, as I said, it will not be based on orv.wikipedia articles necessarily. --22.214.171.124 04:37, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
How come? Does that mean you guys don't have any data from wikimedia or there's no way to import it? --126.96.36.199 04:37, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Comment Wikimedia is turning into a dead languages club. Guys, do we really need a free knowldge in Ancient Greek in Old Russian? Yes, I can slightly agree with the point of Latin Wikipedians (Latin is the official language of Vatican), but I see no point in creating Wikipedia in languages with no native speakers, which are completely not used today. Wikisource - always welcomed, Wikipedia - sorry, no. You will just not have all words needed in the dead language to write articles. --Ochilov(talk) 21:43, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
That's not just a few, there's at least 200 main documents we can import. Should I just copy and paste to import those articles or are there any official way to import it? --188.8.131.52 12:23, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Comment This wiki should renamed from Old Russian to Old East Slavic. --Great Brightstar (talk) 07:41, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
