Waiting for a community of larger than one to contribute. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:08, 11 September 2019 (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.
Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...

Rehat Aziz Chitrali (NP), Adithyak1997 (N), JogiAsad (N) 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.
"Wikiquote 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.
Khowar is the most spoken language in Northern Pakistan. It is taught upto university level and people are doing PhD in this language. I think there is a need of Wikiquote to preserve the khowar quotes of this vibrant language, to enjoy this culture, a place where Khow or Chitralis could go for understanding of their culture and others too to know them.
