  • No, I Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose now. Some pages are in Russian, badly wikified/categorized. Most of articles even have no interwiki-links. If it will be opened, we may really sorry about it.--U.Steele (talk) 06:45, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
    • Please note that voting does not make any difference. This page is about the "concept" of a Wikipedia in Tuvan, not about the actual content. Tuva speakers should contribute to the test wiki, and it will only be approved once the activity is high enough *and* the basic localisation is complete *and* an external neutral source has verified that the content is Tuva and not e.g. Russian. Wikification and interwiki links is something not essential, and also something that non-Tuva-speakers can help with. SPQRobin (talk) 20:40, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Approval

Tyvan Wikipedia has been approved by Langcom finally, after the content of the test project was verified by a linguist. Currently it's still "passing Board approval" for one day, but I think it's appropriate to assume the Board will not give a veto, therefore, I already present here the template with the settings which needs to be filled out; so that there is less of a rush for filling it out.

What Value Example / Explanation
Language code tyv Like "en", "fr", "de", ...
Site URL tyv.wikipedia.org langcode.wikiproject.org
Project name "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Project logo File:... 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Continent/City "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Language name Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on
Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Enable uploads yes/no (optional) Files should be uploaded to Commons, but if you want, you can enable local file uploading.
Notes: (1) files on Commons can be used on all wikis; (2) this setting can be changed afterwards; (3) uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info); (4) localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons
Additional namespaces (optional) For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings (optional) Anything else that should be set
submit bug request (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Thank you, --MF-W 06:42, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Thx all. Next suggestion is only my own opinion. Later we'll add more. We have some problem with building a logo.

Can you say what the translation of "The free encyclopedia" slogan for the logo would be? --MF-W 18:45, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Now here as bug no. 49328. --MF-W 01:33, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
