Emilian Wiktionary[edit]

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:

Project is eligible. Please contribute to the test at incubator:Wt/egl. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 22:46, 28 February 2018 (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:

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 This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Continent/City "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Anything else that should be set

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Support as a proposer. An Emilian Wiktionary could be very important and usefull to preserve the vocabulary of this language. This project would also help the conservation of this languages and furthermore would create an Emilian vocabulary accessible to everyone. --Reder 15:28, 24 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Arguments against[edit]

I'm sorry, but the Emiliano-Romagnolo ISO code (eml) has been splitted in 2009 in Emiliano (egl) and Romagnolo (rgn) code, then it don't longer exist. --Reder (talk) 08:16, 22 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]
