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.
There are more than 25 000 speakers of this language. It is quiet big compared to other languages, isn't it? I think they've got much to write in Torres Strait Wikipedia. --ᨔᨛᨘᨉᨑ ᨓᨛᨍᨐᨖ 20:46, 5 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Support! More than 25,000 speakers of this language and Wikipedia has/has had languages with less than this (e.g Norfuk has about 1,000 speakers and it has a Wikipedia). I will contribute to this and many more Pacific Islander Wikipedias (already started work on the Pitjantjatjara, Eastern Arrernte, Australian Kriol and Niuean ones). I did change the native name from "blaikman" to the more well-known native name "Yumplatok". Australian111 (talk) 03:20, 10 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
