  • 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:

Discussion[edit]

  1. Support We've incubated a project on Wikiversity Beta around 2008/09 with several student projects on two faculties at University of Ljubljana. Project is getting bigger and bigger ever since. There are close to 600 pages of student work in slovene language category of Wikiversity Beta. An unique Slovene Wikiversity would mean a great step in Slovene e-education because students need to practice wiki-editing before they are ready to create ther own Wikipedia articles. The Slovene Wikipedia is a very active wikipedia. With more than 130,000 articles is very large. — MZaplotnik (contribs) 10:20, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
  2. It would ease our endeavour to introduce Wikiversity as a preparatory for Wikipedia very much, if we have Wikiversity localized. --Hladnikm (talk) 09:59, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
  3. The project would contribute a lot to the growth and development of the Slovenian WikiCommunity in the academic and educational sphere. ---Eleassar my talk 10:22, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
