The requested project was created at fiu-vro: at an indeterminate date. Note that this request was approved before the implementation of the standardised Language proposal policy, and should not be used as a model for future requests. —{admin} Pathoschild 05:15, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

    • Number of speakers: 70.000
    • It is proposed in wikipedia-l list 3 Feb 2005 that for the first time code for Võro Wikipedia could be fiu-voro because "vro" and "vr" are not official yet. --Võrok 20:09, 3 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Related to Estonian. Ask et to host Voro ? (4 feb 2005)
    • While I don't speak Võro, having a Wikipedia in this language would be a great thing. As with the codes, there was the same problem with the Aromanian Wikipedia at http://roa-rup.wikipedia.org. We proposed the use of aro but it wasn't official. I'd say fiu-vro would be pretty good, though once it reaches 1000 articles (which it will :) it should be moved to a shorter code, especially if it's proposed. Other than that, good luck with the wiki and steady growth! Ronline 08:40, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Hopefully, a new policy on codes for languages without official ISO codes is forthcoming. fiu-voro is the current proposal for this language.
      • Where can i read something about this "forthcoming" "new policy"? (6 Mar 2005)
        • I don't know. On an unelated topic, should the Voro website be something like vo.wikipedia.org? NazismIsntCool
          • This is not an unrelated topic, this is the same issue. (7 May 2005)
            • For the first time code for Võro Wikipedia could be fiu-voro and therefore the Võro Wiki page itself: fiu-voro.wikipedia.org -Võrok 18:34, 14 May 2005 (UTC)
              • However, a code with structure ***-*** would be better than ***-****. Therefore I would prefer fiu-vro (like "roa-rup").-Võrok 21:04, 14 May 2005 (UTC)
