Requests for new languages/Wikivoyage Tajik

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

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.

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.

A committee member provided the following comment:

Eligible, but project isn't very active. Please create more content. StevenJ81 (talk) 18:10, 11 December 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • 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

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

Default project timezone Asia/Dushanba "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)

Additional settings User groups: uploaders (right: upload files, adding and removing to group by sysops), rollbackers,patrol and autopatroll (rights: adding and removing to group by sysops) 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.



Tajik is spoken in Tajikistan as the official language of the country. The country in the past was part of USSR but nowadays is an independent country and the people like to get familiar with nations other than Russia and to introduce their country to all of the world. This country has an old history and there are many touristic sites there. There are many natural sight-seeings in Tajikistan mountains, rivers and valleys any tourist likes to see.--Doostdar (talk) 09:08, 9 February 2015 (UTC)[reply]
