main page Request for a new language edition: Wikisource Bashkir

submitted verification final decision

This language has been verified as eligible.
The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.

Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval.

If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.

A committee member provided the following comment:

  • The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics). 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 ba (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Bashkir Language name in English
Language name Башҡортса 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 Q13389 - 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)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.

Project name Викикитапхана "Wikisource" in your language
Project namespace Викикитапхана usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Викикитапхана буйынса фекерләшеү "Wikisource 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 This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Yekaterinburg "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
submit Phabricator task. It will include everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings. After creating the task, add a link to the comment.


Bashkir is a language spoken in the Bashkortostan region of Russia with around 1.2 million native speakers. There is a relatively large number of Bashkir pages in Multilingual Wikisource (over 2000 pages in the Bashkir category) which I believe is enough content to consider creating a Bashkir subdomain.

  • Looking at recent activity of Bashkir Wikimedia community I can give my strong support to them. They have a big number of active Russian-to-Bashkir translators that is very promising. Красныйwanna talk? 00:42, 10 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support Bashkir Wikimedians are great supporters of national culture through Wikimedia and need to be supported by Wikimedia particularly by supporting Bashkir "sister projects" --Ssr (talk) 06:01, 10 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Support. Я даже удивлен, что такая активная группа викимедистов до сих пор не имеет своей Викитеки. Язык с богатым фольклором, разработанной и устоявшейся литературной нормой и массой литературных памятников и тысячами, возможно даже десятками тысяч, произведений! --HalanTul (talk) 07:04, 10 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
