submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been closed as part of a reform of the request process.
This request has not necessarily been rejected, and new requests are welcome. This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 01:03:41, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Arguments against[edit]

  1. --Taichi - (?!) 22:36, 27 May 2006 (UTC): ¿Esto es una broma? Ninguna Wiki tiene referencia a ese idioma, en Ethonologue.com no lo tiene listado, ni Google tiene una sola referencia de ese idioma. Eso de que el 20% de la población de Veracruz lo habla parece falso. No se permiten Wikipedias en jergas o dialectos. (In English) This is a joke? None Wiki has a referece about this language, Ethnologue.com don't listed and Google don't search a one reference about Rotas. Then these 20% of Veracruzan people that speak this language is a lie. No dialectal or slang Wikipedias please.--Taichi - (?!) 22:36, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
  2. STRONG oppose -- GerardM 06:10, 29 May 2006 (UTC) The code is not an ISO-639 code of any flavour. Proposing codes in this way is wrong and it breaks things when the code is expanded.
    Gerard, perhaps a better approach is to suggest different codes. By opposing the creation of the Wikipedia rather than trying to fix the problems in the proposal, you are stunting possible development of minority languages.
  3. --ARBE0 12:44, 30 May 2006 (UTC). The lack of a code wouldn't be an unsurmountable problem but this request hardly looks like a serious one. Please provide sufficient, verifiable information - especially when requesting a new wiki for a language(?) nobody knows. ARBE0 12:44, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
