bug phabricator:T168765 --MF-W 01:58, 24 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • 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 hi (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Hindi Language name in English
Language name हिन्दी 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 Q1568 - 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 no indication 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 विकिविद्यालय "Wikiversity" in your language
Project namespace विकिविद्यालय usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace विकिविद्यालय वार्ता "Wikiversity talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads yes 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:Wikiversity-logo-hi.png This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Kolkata "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces see below 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.

@Shivamsaini360, J ansari, Swapnil.Karambelkar, Suyash.dwivedi, and : जी, जैसे की आप सब सदस्यगण यह देख सकते है कि मैंने यहाँ पर विकिविद्यालय के लिए कुछ अतरिक्त सेट्टिंग अर्थात नामस्थान और यूज़र समूह लिखे है। शुरुआत मे मैंने uploader, rollbacker, reviewer और autopatrol के लिए प्रस्ताव रखा था। लेकिन मैं अपने uploader और rollbacker से पीछे हटता हु। और केवल reviewer और autopatrol का प्रस्ताव रखता हु। आप सभी से अनुरोध है कि आप अपने विचार रखे। मैंने इन समूह का प्रस्ताव इसलिए दिया है क्योंकि सुयश जी और मैं कुछ विश्वविद्यालय को जोड़ेगे। तो इस समूह की जरूरत हमे पड़ेगी। @: जी, इस पर विचार व्यक्त करे। -Jayprakash12345 (talk) 09:57, 13 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@अनुनाद सिंह: गुरु जी, मैंने तथा कुछ सदस्यो ने हिंदी को आगे बढ़ने के लिए हिन्दी विकिवर्सिटी पर कार्य किया है। लेकिन अब इसके जल्द ही खुल जाने की संभावना है आप से अच्छा और कोई नही है जो इसके नाम को सही करने मे हमारी मदद कर सके। इसके लिए मैंने दो नाम विकिवर्सिटी और विकिविद्यालय के नाम का सुझाव दिया था। आपसे नम्र अनुरोध है कि आप इस पर विचार व्यक्त करे। ताकि यह और अच्छी हो सके। कृपया उत्तर दे। धन्यवाद।-Jayprakash12345 (talk) 04:41, 18 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jayprakash12345: जयप्रकाश जी, विकिविद्यालय मुझे अधिक अच्छा लग रहा है। इसी तरह विकिविद्यापीठ भी ठीक रहेगा। अनुनाद सिंह (talk) 10:43, 18 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@: जी, अनुनाद जी भी विकिविद्यालय पर सहमत है। और मैंने भी बहुत जगह विकिविद्यालय का प्रयोग किया है। आप विकिविद्यालय से लोगो अपलोड करे

MF-Warburg Sir, Is it Possible to Create this Wikiversity before 15 July. Beacause the Third Hindi WikiConference announced for on 15 July. See Grants:Project/Rapid/Hindi_WikiConference,_15-16_July_at_(Delhi). We are planning to make Short Outreach on there for newcomers. If possible to create wiki before 15 July. Otherwise If not possible we are happy. We will cancel our Short Outreach. We are waiting for your answer-Jayprakash12345 (talk) 17:33, 16 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think this is very much possible. --MF-W 18:55, 16 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@अनुनाद सिंह: गुरु जी, सर्वप्रथम तो शुभकामनये हमारे हिन्दी विकिविद्यायल का निर्माण जल्द ही हो जायेगा। यह हिन्दी और हिन्दी मे मुक्त पाने वालो के लिए मील का पथर साबित होगा। मैं आपसे चौपाल के नामकरण से संबंधित मार्गदर्शन चाहता हु। चूँकि अन्य विवि मे यह कैफेटेरिया नाम से होता है तो हमे अपने हिन्दी विवि के लिए भी अच्छा नाम रखना चाहिए। जो विद्यालय से लेकर अभियांत्रिकी विवि मे भी प्रचलित हो अर्थात सरल हो आप चाहे तो चौपाल भी रख सकते है परंतु यदि विद्यायल के लिए और सरल शब्द मिल जाये तो और अच्छा होगा।-Jayprakash12345 (talk) 16:14, 24 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
