Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).
Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.
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.
West Coast Bajau (Ling Sama) is an Austronesian language spoken by the Bajau Sama people that is spoken mainly in the west coast of Sabah, Borneo Malaysia. There are about 210,000 Bajau Sama people according to Ethnologue and is one of the main ethnic group in Sabah. This language is still used in daily communication and has a radio station and news channel in this language by the government. This language has developed its physical dictionary and has an agency for this language which is the Bajau Sama Language and Culture Association (BSBB).
Support We hope that Wikipedia Sama will be the first indigenous language in Malaysia to be released in Incubator and will be the prime example for other languages here. --Tofeiku (talk) 14:20, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: Not yet because I just created it and the community will start creating the contents soon. We are discussing first which word should match with "Main page". --Tofeiku (talk) 02:11, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: We have created the Main page and has a few small articles already. We will recruit more next week with a workshop. --Tofeiku (talk) 13:20, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
