Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).
Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.
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.
Patuá is a language derived mainly from Malay, Sinhalese, Cantonese, and Portuguese, which was originally spoken by the Macanese community of the Portuguese colony of Macao.Although it is now spoken by only a few people in Macao or in the Macanese diaspora and is dedicated to endangered languages, it has the attraction of its history and diversity. Macanese is actively spoken by just several dozen old people, mostly women in their eighties or nineties, in Macau and Hong Kong. Also, Patuá is a stable natural language which has its own sentence structure different from Portuguese. Nowadays, it is called the sweet language in Macao and Macao government started protecting the language and taking further action to promote it thus more local people has been learning and speaking this language. --Marco Choi 04 (talk) 05:37, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
