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 and will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert.
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.
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.
For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Anything else that should be set
submit Phabricator task. It will include everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings. After creating the task, add a link to the comment.
Location(s) spoken: Eastern Iraq, Western Iran.
Arguments in favour
SupportSupport: Native speakers of Southern Kurdish have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Southern Kurdish language deserves to be given the opportunity and priviledge to have its own language edition of Wikipedia along with the existing Kurdish language family such as Kurdish, Zazaki, Kirmanjki and so on. There are 3,000,000 speakers. --Jose77 20:46, 30 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Support southern kurdish is very different from kurdi (ku) and Surani (ckb). so it's better to has separate wiki project. Actually it need to that.--Arash (talk) 10:37, 27 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Support There are many speakers, and their dialect differs greatly from the central and northern ones--Ahmedadeljaff (talk)
Support -- This variety of Kurdish language has around 3 million speakers and it has an active community of literary contributors. The project deserves to be transformed into a Wikipedia of its own. TerranBoy (talk) 11:31, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done The Southern Kurdish Incubator Wikipedia has now been changed to the arabic script by a native speaker. That user notified me on my talkpage that the vast majority of them use the Perso-arabic script to write their language. --Jose77 (talk) 06:40, 29 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Currently 0% of the most used messages have been localised.
Since Southern Kurdish is written in both the Latin script and Arabic scripts, the prefixes sdh-Latn and sdh-Arab should be used respectively for each writing system to enable the interface translations of both orthographies. --Jose77 20:49, 31 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No need to sdh-Latn, we don't use Latin script. Thank you.--Calak (talk) 11:39, 21 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
