submitted verification final decision
Application-certificate.svg This proposal has been approved.
The Board of Trustees and language committee have deemed that there is sufficient grounds and community to create the new language project.

A committee member provided the following comment:

See phabricator:T196360. Please continue to contribute to the test at incubator:Wq/sah until the wiki is created. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 12:43, 4 June 2018 (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.
  • 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
Proposal
Language code sah (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Sakha Language name in English
Language name саха 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 Q34299 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Sakha
  • native label (P1705) = Саха тыла, саха тыла‎ (Saxa tıla), сахалыы‎ (saȟalyy)
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language / Siberian Turkic languages
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = sah
  • writing system (P282) = Cyrillic script, Sakha scripts
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 450,000±1


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.
Community
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.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name Биики Домох "Wikiquote" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wikiquote 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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:... 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Asia/Yakutsk "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Proposal[edit]

The Sakha language is the official language in the Republic of Sakha - the region of the Russian Federation. It has developed fiction and theater, and feature films. Language is taught in primary and secondary schools. The language of Sakha is successfully developing Wikipedia. --HalanTul (talk) 13:18, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

  • Support A good Turkic language. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 11:30, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Support The test project is relatively new, but shows healthy signs. If it keeps its current activity level, it should be approvable within a few months. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 13:44, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Best activity level more that four month. --Kaganer (talk) 11:29, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Support --Айсар (talk) 07:43, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Sakha wiki-comminity is one of very active in Russia and world--Kaiyr (talk) 03:33, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Support. SakhaWP shows best new user registration stats among other WPs in the regional languages of Russia & contributing into Wikiquote is easier for new users than WP.--Frhdkazan (talk) 12:11, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Support --З. ӘЙЛЕ (talk) 04:48, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
