main page Request for a new language edition: Wikiversity Lithuanian
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:
What Value Example / Explanation

Language Wikidata item Q9083 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Lithuanian
  • native label (P1705) = Lietuvių kalba
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language / East Baltic languages
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = lt
  • writing system (P282) = Latin script
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 4,000,000


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.
Community
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 Vikiversitetas "Wikiversity" in your language
Project namespace Vikiversitetas usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Vikiversiteto aptarimas "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-lt.svg 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Europe/Vilnius "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces Fakultetas, Fakulteto aptarimas, Kursas, Kurso aptarimas, Projektas, Projekto aptarimas 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]

The proposal is to open a Wikiversity in Lithuanian obviously. The idea was had by User:Vogone who will probably contribute on betawikiversity:Category:LT. --MF-W 02:21, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

  • StrongSymbol support vote.svg Support. If I'll find a person, who could me help with technical issues (as I'm not skilled enough to create entire (wikiversity) project), I could parcitipate developing it. --Kusurija (talk) 16:19, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
