main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Tsukurian
submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

A committee member provided the following comment:

The ISO codes given are for other languages. No evidence could be found that a language called Tsukurian exists; and neither seems the text below in #Proposal be a valid language. --MF-W 23:35, 26 February 2013 (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.
  • The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
  • The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:
What Value Example / Explanation
Proposal
Language code tsn (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Tsukurian Language name in English
Language name Tsuulanga Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Language Wikidata item Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.
Community
You can optionally list your user name if you are an active contributor to the test wiki. Add "N" next to your name if you are a native speaker of this language.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name Oikipidiya "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace Oikipidiya usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Oikipidiya Snæðya "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads no 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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:... Wikipedia-logo-ka 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone UTC+4 "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces Atneskipi' nenu For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Zla'ritniiyu Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

I don't see much (or anything!) about this language. Can you provide a link about it? πr2 (tc) 22:53, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
The iso code listed, "tsn" seems to belong to Tswana. Snowolf How can I help? 20:31, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
I think I can guess some of the meaning of the text. πr2 (t • c) 23:03, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
It seems to mention en:Inuinnaqtun, Finland, and Greenland. However, it seems to use several uncommon Latin letters, like German Eszett "ß" = "ss", thorn "Þ" = "th" (used in Old English to Icelandic), engma [?] (user probably meant to write an engma, not an eta, based on "Fi[]landinii" and "Innui[n]aqtun"). I can tell you this is not Tswana after working with local users on the tn:already-existing Tswana Wikipedia, and learning some basics of the language. It looks nothing like a Bantu language (like Tswana). πr2 (t • c) 23:35, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
