Hebrew Wikiversity[edit]

main page Request for a new language edition: Wikiversity Hebrew
submitted verification final decision
Applications-system.svg 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 and notify the Board of Trustees for a possible veto.

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.

  • 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:

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 "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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:... 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Asia/Jerusalem "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]

Discussion[edit]

Arguments in favour[edit]

  1. Support . The Hebrew Wikipedia is the 25th Largest one, and contains 62,377 Articals. A Hebrew Wikiversity is the next logical step. --Jarondl 00:42, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  2. I totally agree! --Oren neu dag 01:16, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
  3. Support Agreed (Red4tribe 16:05, 23 April 2008 (UTC))
  4. Support StuB 14:21, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
  5. Support --פדיחה (talk) 10:47, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
  6. Support --Guycn2 (talk) 07:20, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  7. Support They have a lot of contributers besides their population. --Kafkasmurat (talk) 11:33, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
  8. Support I do think It will work. SleepyMode (talk) 11:53, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
  9. Support BDaniel (talk) 16:38, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Arguments against[edit]

  1. Oppose. I think it too early for this project to be localized to Hebrew. We have a lot of things we can do before on WikiSource and WikiBook... --Itzike 13:17, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

General discussion[edit]

A few reasons of why it should be created: There are many students that speak hebrew either as native or not, and its always going to be active, even that many of them aren't active on the Meta, they might be active there as it'll be quite easy to find using a quick search in google, or in any other engine, and in Israel we use it a lot.

Localisation update[edit]

  • Status is currently Unknown. Last update was in 2008, We'll keep working on it soon. SleepyMode (talk) 12:24, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Currently 100% of the MediaWiki messages and 57.54% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation have been localised. Thanks, GerardM 07:31, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Currently 99.86% of the MediaWiki messages and 100.00% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation projects have been localised. Localisation of these messages is a requirement before your request is finally assessed. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 14:50, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
