This language has been verified as eligible. The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.
Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval, will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert and notify the Board of Trustees for a possible veto.
If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.
A committee member provided the following comment:
Project is eligible, but the test project contents are pretty sparse. Please keep working on the test at Incubator. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 15:04, 21 November 2018 (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.
"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.
There are approximately 4-7 millions native speakers of the Karen language so it deserve to have its own language edition of Wikipedia. There are native speakers of Karen who will be willing to contribute to help develop the Karen language that have its own writing system and its own language. The Karen language should be recognize for it's existence. For your information, The term "Karen" is an umbrella term that have many branches of individual languages, however the one I'm requesting is the "S'gaw" which is the largest sub-group of the Karen languages. When you use the term "Karen", usually they refer to S'gaw Karen. Sometime the language code for Karen is "kar" but in Wikipedia it is refer to "Karen languages" which is not specifically S'gaw but since S'gaw Karen are usually refer as Karen unlike other sub-groups of Karen languages their language code could also use as "kar".
SupportSupport S'gaw Karen is spoken by aroud 4 to 6 millions native speaker around the world and majority of them are spoken in Karen State, Burma.There are news articles websites that are in Karen (Sgaw) language and also newsletter that are in Karen language in the United States. —unsigned by ayekyar80 11:45, 8 July 2017.
