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.
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.
"Wikiversity talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
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.
Support I would be glad to translate English and French Wikiversities to Turkish as much as I can. Thinking of the educational system in Turkey, many people critically needs the Turkish "Vikiversite" to educate themselves on the topics they desire to learn. The Turkish Wikipedia (aka Vikipedi) ,Wikisource (aka Vikikaynak), Wikiquote (aka Vikisöz) and Wikibooks (Vikikitap) are doing a nice job with over its 50,000 users and improving day by day. I believe we can take the challenge and create a nice work. --Nerval 05:36, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
Support - There are a lot of students in Turkey, and many of the Wikipedists are from those students. I am sure that if such a Wikiversity opens, many people would be glad and they will be eager to contribute.
There is a complete lack of organization in Turkish online researching and several sites are offering to "sell" information to students. I think that is unfair, so with no doubt, a Turkish Wikiversity is needed as soon as possible. In addition, the recent rise of Turkish Wikipedia is unnegligible about this matter.

I am inclined to support this. Although Turkish wikipedia is still tiny in comparasion to other language wikipedias, I feel it has the prospect of growing rapidly based on my experience there in the past several months. -- Catchi? 11:21, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
Support There are more than 85 million Turkish speakers around the world, with 72 million being in Turkey. Furthermore, people speaking Tatar and Azeri, as well as many other Turkic dialects/languages can understand Turkish. Even the number of speakers should be enough to start a Turkish Wikiversity (Vikiversite) project, which will help more than 100 million people around the world. --Scientia Est Potentia 11:17, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
a little Support un bon projet, mais cela maque des pages de wikiversité comme on peut le voir dans certain autres pojet existant ou en incubation. Je propose bien entendu les services de mon robot inter wiki afin de lier les pages des différents projet pour favoriser la création de nouveaux cours Crochet.david 20:27, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Support--It is very good project for the students in Turkey. I would like to open Turkish Wikiversity, too (in turkish:Vikiversite). The Turkish Wikipedia is improving every day. I think Vikiversite will improve, too. I agree this project. Srhat 18:44, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Support: Hello, I am in different Wikiversities active and would support a Turkish Wikiversity. As one of the above persons explained, there are many people speaking Turkish and a tr.WV would help to connect them beyond physical borders and encourage learning projects. Due to the mission of Wikiversity I believe Wikiversity is a good means to achieve this. Also as one person told there are different Wikimedia projects already established, but since they prefer "assured knowledge" people with e.g. new research could find a home at tr.WV. There is also created now an IRC channel #wikiversity-tr (see here how to connect). ----Erkan Yilmaz (Wikiversity:Chat, wiki blog) 22:47, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Reluctant support - Even when Turkey's censorship on Wikipedia may be unjust, the establishment of Turkish Wikiversity should prompt the Turkish government into contributing it more and more. I don't know how repressive the project can be, but it should balance Turkish Wikipedia. --George Ho (talk) 01:13, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Update: 100.00% 72.88% 26.83%. There has been a nice improvement however there is still more work to be done. The good news is that this effort will benefit all projects including Commons. GerardM 05:26, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
I would like to announce that a incubated Turkish version of Wikiversity on beta has been created . Runningfridgesrule 13:58, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
FYI Localisation is a precondition to final approval. Given that only 79% of the most important messages have been localised at this time, it falls short from what is expected of second projects for a language. Expected is localisation for all MediaWiki messages and all the extensions used in the WMF. GerardM 12:25, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Update: tr Türkçe 100.00% 75.79% 29.30% GerardM 08:55, 17 February 2008 (UTC) :)

...now what? Over a year has passed since you last left a message lol. Runningfridgesrule 17:00, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
More than 2 years. Any update? Kanzler31 03:52, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
After experience with English Wikiversity, I now have second thoughts about this. On one hand, establishing more Turkish sister projects should help curb Turkey's political censorship on Wikipedia. On the other hand, some or many courses of English Wikiversity have aged terribly and needs updates. Nevertheless, English Wikiversity has its own Wikijournal subproject, but I will not expect much about Turkish Wikiversity. If Wikijournal becomes an established website, the necessity of having more Wikiversity language sites may be affected. At least I can expect Turkish Wikijournal, but I won't oppose Turkish Wikiversity... yet. Currently, Beta Wikiversity is proposed to be closed since 2013, and the proposal subpage is still open. --George Ho (talk) 19:53, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
@George Ho: This is the reason why I strongly urge you to systemly take down the betawikiversity, because it's rather like a dustbin of Wikimedia nowadays. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 14:29, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
