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.

No problems with the eligibility here. --MF-W 21:56, 31 March 2013 (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.
"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.

Support. 1,1 million, that a big contributor base and even bigger readers' base. Let's give them a boost. Wikipedia helps fight illiteracy. Kubura 04:12, 26 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Weak support - decent speaker base, but sceptical of internet penetration in this region, also don't know what literacy rates are like in the language.-MacRusgail (talk) 16:08, 30 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Strong supportJohanry(talk) - This is a good opportunity especially for Tausug people who have difficulty of understanding either Tagalog or English. Johanry(talk) 14:17, 30 December 2018
