- 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||mup (SIL, Glottolog)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Malvi||Language name in English|
|Language name||Malvi (?) (please add translation)||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||Q33413 - 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)?|

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.
|Project logo||File:...||This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).|
|Default project timezone||IST (India) or UTC (Universal)||"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|
Malvi is the language spoken in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. There are more than 15 million Malvi speakers. This is one of the biggest language of the state. The region of Malvi language is called 'Malwa'. People from all the caste and religion in this area speaks Malvi as their mother tongue.
There are four dialects of this language. They are Sondwadi, Umadwadi, Radwadi and Ujjaini. Among these diacteed Ujjaini is considered as the central dialect by a sociolinguistic survey done in 2001. Malvi is written using Devanagari script. This is the same script in which the national language (Hindi) is also written.
However, there is already a "Rajasthani" Wikipedia, and Malvi is a sub-language/dialect of Rajasthani. (correct me if I'm wrong). You can also start a Rajasthani Wiktionary if you would like to. If you have any questions, please ask them. πr2 (t • c) 17:44, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
