main page Request for a new language edition: Wikivoyage Gilaki
submitted verification final decision
Crystal Clear mimetype file temporary.png Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).

The language committee needs to verify the language is eligible to be approved.

  • Check that the project does not already exist (see list).
  • Obtain an ISO 639 code
  • Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
  • Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.

This proposal is on hold:

So far, only a main page and one content page have been created in this test. If people are interested in creating a Wikivoyage in Gilaki, please contribute to the test project. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 15:08, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
  • The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). 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 glk (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Gilaki Language name in English
Language name گيلکي 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 Q33657 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Gilaki
  • native label (P1705) = گيلکي, گیلکی‎ (Gīlakī)
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language / Caspian languages
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = glk
  • writing system (P282) = Arabic alphabet
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 3,000,000, 2,400,000

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 Pirsharafshah (N)
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.
Project name ويکي‌سفر "Wikivoyage" in your language
Project namespace ويکي‌سفر usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace گب_ويکي‌سفر "Wikivoyage 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 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Asia/Rasht "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces 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)



Arguments in favor[edit]

@Pirsharafshah: That's fine, and it's good to try to get your test marked as "eligible". However, you need to get a community together to start building a test project at incubator:Wy/glk. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:03, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
