main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Simple Hebrew
submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

A committee member provided the following comment:

In general, policy no longer allows new "Simple" projects. If there is an interest, this should be created within Hebrew Wikipedia. StevenJ81 (talk) 10:37, 29 January 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.
  • 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
Proposal
Language code simple-he (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Simple Hebrew Language name in English
Language name עברית פשוטה 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 NA 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.
Community
You can optionally list your user name if you are an active contributor to the test wiki. Add "N" next to your name if you are a native speaker of this language.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name Wikipedia "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads yes 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 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

Hebrew isn't an easy language, and along the flow of the generations, we find less and less people who speak proper Hebrew or understand the written language, we'd like to open a Simple Hebrew wikipedia to help the younger population and the people who learn Hebrew.

Arguments in favour[edit]

Arguments against[edit]

  • No! All simple Wikipedias will be automatically rejected. Instead, get your local community to implement a namespace for this. Frozen Windwant to be chilly? 20:05, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

    Was opened before the current policy was set up. Now no more "simple" projects are accepted. -- Dferg ☎ talk 16:18, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Policy does not allow for more "simple" projects. -- Dferg ☎ talk 16:18, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose Such projects should exist on the existing edition itself. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 07:29, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
