Erzya 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.

  • 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:

Project name "Wiktionary" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name

Enable uploads no 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 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
submit Phabricator task. It will include everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings. After creating the task, add a link to the comment.



Arguments in favour[edit]

  1. Support In 2002 the renowned Erzya writer Kuz'ma Abramov published the first Erzya-language dictionary "Валонь ёвтнема валкс" with well over six thousand entries. The manuscript materials from this dictionary have been granted as an open-axis basis for this type of project. Thanks. Rueter 07:03, 21 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  2. SupportHi! like a native speaker will give voice to create. It will be a qualitative development of the Erzya language in the Internet - it is necessary for pupils, students, and those who want to teach Erzya language. I will help in the development of this project. I think that apart from the dictionary Abramov's, you can use and other open sources, for example the book "Syrnen chovolyat Eugene Chetvergov.
