Proposal summary
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.

I wanted to request the creation of the Mirandese Wiktionary. The same arguments of the Wikipedia in Mirandese can be applied for the creation of this project. It's very important one argument; Mirandese has been mostly spoken and there isn't one solid base of written documents, dictionary and so on. This project is just perfect to (even speakers) people could have more access to Mirandese writing. More, there are already lots of verbs already conjugated that are available in Word format and this seems the perfect platform to share them. I also would like to said that Mirandese Wikipedia project is not yet approved but i looks that we are in the good track. Sooner or later i think it will happen. To finish, i've checked some Wiktionary's (mainly in Portuguese) and there are already some translations from Portuguese entry's to Mirandese. Cecílio 05:23, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • This is sort of reply to OosWesThoesBes: Most Used Messages are finished. And i just requested the commit. Once again, i want to say that there is already some work done, specially with verbs, here's the link: verbs in Mirandese. Now it's the only platform available to share that (i'm not anti-Microsoft but Word doesn't seem a good way to share this information, if you had some doubt would you like to visit that site and search in Word documents?; also that work was done by just one person and with one Wiktionary more people could help). It just seems right to share that in one Mirandese Wiktionary. I requested authorization to the author of those documents and he is even ready to help, as he is doing in Wikipedia. --Cecílio 04:12, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Mirandese is a language experiencing great expansion after its recognition by the Portuguese government in the previous decade. Lots of written works are being published and its ortography has been regulated recently. There is a significant group of people to which Mirandese is more familiar than Portuguese. Therefore, I'm totally in favor of the creation of this project, which I believe could become the biggest repository of vocabulary for the language. Malafaya 11:18, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Arguments against[edit]

  • Sorry, but I don't see this happen. The community (of the Wikipedia on the incubator) is currently too small and even the 500 most-used messages aren't finished. It's better to wait and first work on the wikipedia. --OosWesThoesBes 09:58, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
    All 500 most used messages are localized(i finished them; and request the commit twice,before finish them and after). Also the Wikipedia in Miradese was already considered as one of the most active in the incubator. I don't see what's the problem in start this project, the Wikipedia will still be my priority.Cecílio 18:52, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
    I checked now the most used messages and they are really not finished. I will fix that soon. But in the analysis to the Wikipedia most-used MediaWiki messages are underlined so at some moment they were finished. Sorry. --Cecílio 19:03, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
    Haj. I'll change to supportive when there's activity and I see some good contents :) --OosWesThoesBes 14:18, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
