A constructed language without an ISO 639-3 code. --Millosh (talk) 20:40, 19 March 2017 (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
Language code  (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Lingwa de planeta Language name in English
Language name Lingwa de planeta 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 Q35783 - 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 no indication 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 Wiktionnaire "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 [[:File:]] This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone "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.



Lingwa de Planeta is artificial language created in 2010 that has been growing through the Internet. This media would make it possible to provide with a dictionary that unifies the existing ones in different languages as well as a means to help to spread the language. For more information, please go to thew official website. --Chabi1 (talk) 08:39, 28 May 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Being one of the active speakers of the language, I add my voice to the vote and inform that the request for the ISO 639 code has been made and the reply is being waited for. As for the spread of the language, there is a large community in facebook, and according to this facebook page more than 70 000 people have mentioned the language in their info as one they speak. The language is actively used in communication and translation. The translation of "Alice's adventures in Wonderland" is being published (Evertype, 2014. — ISBN 1-78201-071-5.) --Sunnynai (talk) 09:33, 1 June 2014 (UTC)[reply]
May I note that Evertype has also published an edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in Doug Ewell's private Ewellic script. It's not a high bar.--Prosfilaes (talk) 08:06, 9 October 2014 (UTC)[reply]
I resemble that remark. DougEwell (talk) 21:55, 15 January 2015 (UTC)[reply]



Very Strongly Oppose Just another IAL attempt that will go nowhere, and, if this becomes a Wiktionary (Which it will not) then languages like Ro, Spokil, and Glosa would need to be added, maybe even Wenedyk. Furthermore, LiDePla even lacks naturalism and æsthetics AND the useful 1 to 1 sound-letter correspondence, For ex. Even though Esperanto does not look naturalistic it has a very useful 1 to 1 letter-sound correspondance, unlike LiDePla, and on top of that, I could just go off and create my own IAL (As a Audtodidact I could probably create something better than LiDePla), and then ask if it can be a Wiktionary. Lastly LiDePla looks like Italian or French with English letters and sound correspondence. Probably one of the (If not The) worst IAL attempt(s) I have seen.

See http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/cr_files/PastComments/CR_Comments_2014-011.pdf, though a later request might be entertained. Should this request therefore be summarily closed? StevenJ81 (talk) 14:16, 9 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]
