main page Request for a new language edition: Wikivoyage Veps
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, 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:

Proposal[edit]

Hello! I want to see the Veps Wikivoyage on its own domain. It is active in Wikimedia Incubator. Nowadays our community actively works on Veps Wikipedia, and we are ready to add some intresting information in Wikivoyage project (e. g. about notable places of Vepsia).

Thanks, --Tamara Ustinova (talk) 06:07, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
