|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikiversity Estonian|
- 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||et (SIL, Glottolog)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Estonian||Language name in English|
|Language name||eesti||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||Q9072 - 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||"Wikiversity" in your language|
|Project namespace||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||"Wikiversity 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||This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).|
|Default project timezone||Europe/Tallinn||"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.|
Arguments in favor
- Support. Based on the number of active contributors the Estonian Wikiversity has been one of the most active projects in Betawikiversity in recent months. We have a small but commited community who is very much interested in establishing an independent Estonian Wikiversity. --Hans Poldoja 16:04, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
- Comment This has to be obvious in the people who state they want to contribute to this project on this page. GerardM 16:44, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
- Support. My current 3+1 (one was compiled by me, but taught by another person) courses running on Wikiversity are all considered successful by participants and I plan to go on. I also agree with Hans - our user base is likely to grow, plus we also have got a suitable research entity to coordinate Wikiversity-based work in the Centre for Educational Technology at Tallinn University.

- (+) Support. Project active and participants committed. Hillgentleman 14:54, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
- Currently 93.73% of the MediaWiki core and 46.48% of the messages used in extensions used by the WMF have been localised. Thanks, GerardM 16:33, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
