Requests for new languages/Wikiversity Korean

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
submitted verification final decision

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:

  • 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
Proposal
Language code ko (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Korean Language name in English
Language name 한국어 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 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.

Settings
Project name 위키배움터 "Wikiversity" in your language
Project namespace 위키배움터 usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace 위키배움터토론 "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:Wikiversity-logo-ko.png This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Seoul "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 against/반대 의견[edit]

General discussion[edit]

  • General Comment - I would like to note that Korean Wikiversity was one of the original "demo" Wikiversities that was demonstrated for the original proposal. Unfortunately, it was put on en.wikibooks and subsequently deleted during a non-english content cleanup campaign. See this link for more details. If/when this is put up, I could suggest undelete some of that content, but it really wasn't more than a few pages. Still, the fact that it was even started at all more than two years ago (first edit was 20 August 2004) speaks volumes over the potential this could have. I hope the Korean speakers eventually get together enough to get this proposal accepted. --Roberth 18:07, 28 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
