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.

Please contribute to the test project. StevenJ81 (talk) 18:17, 14 June 2019 (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.

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.

We would like to see the Sylheti Nagari version of Wikipedia. Although there are about 17 million speakers of the Sylheti language only a few thousand can read and write in it. The script was withdrawn by the Bangladeshi government in 1971,more than 40 years later it is in decline. Reviving the script will help us to preserve the Sylheti language. If you could have a Sylheti Nagari version of Wikipedia this would immensely boost our efforts to protect the Sylheti language and script. Please consider this.
You should follow the instructions to create a test wiki on the Incubator here (specifically see this and this). Regarding the script: I think the Sylheti Wikipedia should allow writing in Bengali script, not just Sylheti Nagari. In fact, Sylheti Nagari seems to be only used in ancient times; it would be better to use a script that will be read by more people. I would recommend allowing contributions in either script and implementing a converter between the two scripts (not sure how practical it is for Nagari, but it's worth a try).

sylheti nagri and sylheti language is dying.its getting impure with bengali words.we're desperate for saving our language.
How do I change the name from "Wikipedia Sylheti Nagari" to "Sylheti Wikipedia"
like all the Sylotian n u all guys , i hope the wikimedia community will be kind enough to grant the proposal. we want to see the "Sylheti Wikipedia" as soon as possible. otherwise our syloti language will be extinct once. so we should take the necessary steps to keep our language alive from getting endangered by the local bengali language.
