submitted verification final decision


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:

Currently, proposals for simple projects are not accepted for general reasons. I am declining this request as no good reason is given to revisit the original decision. --Sotiale (talk) 11:47, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • 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
Language code es (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Simple Spanish Language name in English
Language name español de sencillas 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 Q1321 - item has currently the following values:
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.
Directionality LTR Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Project name Wikipédia para Español de Sencillas "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace Wikipédia para Español de Sencillas usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Discusión "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 File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-es.svg This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Madrid "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces Wikipedia, Ayudar, Página del usuario, Plantilla, Archivo, Artículo For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit Phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)


I’d like this to be here, for complicated words would just be dumbed down to maybe a 4th or 5th grader level of Spanish. Any ideas on the website name?SikiWtideI (talk) 19:02, 26 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


  • @SikiWtideI: This was rejected for 3 times, are you sure you have new arguments different from the previous? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:17, 27 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Comment Comment am I not mistaken that "simple" projects are now discouraged by LangCom? If so, I oppose the creation of a Simple Spanish project – I remain skeptical that this project won't become an identical copy of eswiki. --SHB2000 (talk | contribs) 06:14, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
