Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Yaeyama
|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Yaeyama|
- 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|
|Language code||rys (SIL, Glottolog)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Yaeyama||Language name in English|
|Language name||八重山物言||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||Q34203 - item has currently the following values:
||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.|
|Directionality||LTR||Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?|
|Project name||ヰキペディヤ||"Wikipedia" in your language|
|Project namespace||ヰキペディヤ||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||"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.
|Project logo||File:none||This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).|
|Default project timezone||Asia/Tokyo||"Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)|
|Additional namespaces||For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".|
|Additional settings||Anything else that should be set|
I think we should build this new project for all Yaeyama spaekers. Everyone should have an acces to information. Moreover, the test alredy has an activity, a few articles are alredy written by natives speakers. --Jobrz0405 (talk) 15:23, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
Dear Languge Committe. It is written, in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikipedia_Yaeyama, that I have to obtain an ISO 639-1 code. I have made the request for a new ISO 639 language code, but here what I have recieved in my mail box:
Language already has a code in ISO 639-3: https://iso639-3.sil.org/code/rys The language is out of scope for Parts 1 and 2. Languages that are given codes in Part 3 first are usually not given codes in Parts 1 and 2.
