A Wikipedia in Alemannic (including Swiss German) already exists at It should actually use "gsw", but so far the wiki has not been moved (bug 23215). SPQRobin (talk) 16:26, 8 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Proposal summary
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.

In Switzerland live over 4.5 Milions peoples, who speaks Swiss German as their nativ language. In Germany exists a lot of German wikis in diffrent dialects. I think it's time to create a wiki in Swiss German for all the users in Switzerland.
