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.
Romanesco dialect has a long story: some important poets, like Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli, Trilussa and Cesare Pascarella used it for their poetry and it's really expressive. I think that to start a new Wikipedia in Romanesco dialect would be a great tribute to a great city and culture.
In Romanesco dialect:
Er dialetto romanesco c'ha 'na storia lunga: arcuni 'mportanti poeti, come Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli, Trilussa e Cesare Pascarella, l'hanno usato pe' e poesie loro ed è davero morto espressivo. Penzo che inizziare 'na uichipedia ner dialetto romanesco sia 'n grosso tribbuto pe' na grossa città e curtura. --Matteo Crinò (talk) 01:32, 7 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Strong oppose I think that this project will never be well developed and will have in the long term very few articles and editors; Romanesco hasn't, also, an ISO language code. --Gce (talk) 21:58, 28 July 2017 (UTC)[reply]
I have always been sympathetic to regional languages and Wikipedias in them. Also, I understand the reasoning behind this proposal: if there are Wikipedias in Venetian, Emilian-Romagnol, and Neapolitan, why not one in Roman. Because Rome is a big city and its citizens are quite chauvinistic, it probably wouldn't be as unsuccessful as Gce thinks it would. However, I've also always been careful to draw a line. Not any vernacular can qualify for its own Wikipedia. The Romanesco dialect is just too close to standard Italian to grant it its own project. Therefore I weakly oppose this.
