Gan Wiktionary[edit]

main page Request for a new language edition: Wiktionary Gan

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:
What Value Example / Explanation
Language code gan (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Gan Chinese Language name in English
Language name 贛語 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 Q33475 - item has currently the following values:
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.
Directionality LTR Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.

Project name "Wiktionary" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wiktionary talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
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 Support : Native speakers of Gan have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Gan language deserves to be given the opportunity and priviledge to have its own language edition of Wiktionary along with the existing Gan Wikipedia. --Jose77 22:13, 6 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  2. Support Support : Actually Gan Wikipedia has made a great success, and I truly believe Gan Wiktionary will make another one, especially an online dictionary is more important for the Gan language as it can greatly aid Gan Wikipedia editing. --Symane 14:36, 5 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  3. Support Support :As a native speaker, I do belive that Gan Chinese needs its own writing system and the Gan Wiktionary could be a nice preparation for that. --Chalmers 15:16, 5 December 2010 (ETC)
  4. Support Support : A wiktionary will be greatly helpful in edting Gan wikipedia.--Jiangxinese 23:30, 18 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  8. Absolutely Support: Many people from china can read gan wikipedia, but don't know how to speak. So, a wiktionary is needed--el caballero de los Leones (talk) 02:46, 20 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
