  • 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:
What Value Example / Explanation
Language code blk (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Pa'O Language name in English
Language name ပအိုဝ်ႏဘာႏသာႏ Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Language Wikidata item Q7121294 - item has currently the following values: 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.
Directionality LTR Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.

Project name ဝီခီပီးဒီးယား "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace ဝီခီပီးဒီးယား usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace ဝီခီပီးဒီးယား_အိုင်ကိုမ်ဒေါ့ꩻရီ "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads no 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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-blk.svg This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Rangoon "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit Phabricator task. It will include everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings. After creating the task, add a link to the comment.

Asking for suggestions


Hello @MF-Warburg:, Are you busy, if you are busy I apologize, I need your help, just like you opened Mon Wiktionary with your help last month, I would like to get your help to open this Pa'O Wiktionary and Wikipedia Pa'O as well. You first check to enable Pa'O Wiktionary and Wikipedia Pa'O, give me some advice on what I still need to do, there are so many articles out there on Pa'O Wiktionary and Wikipedia Pa'O, there are so many Translatewiki translations, and I really do not understand what remains to be done, of course, I did not understand what to do next as wiki officials did not advise me on what to do next. I'm the leader of this Pa'O Wiktionary and Wikipedia Pa'O, please reply to my request for advice in your spare time, I look forward to hearing from you, thanks.--Music writer Dr.Intobesa of Japanese idol NMB48 and BNK48.

Pa'O is a language spoken by more than 1,500,000 people in Myanmar. Having a Wikipedia in Pa'O language is beneficial to Pa'O people! --မ္ၚဵု (talk) 01:08, 8 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
