- 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||pms (SIL, Ethnologue)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Piedmontese||Language name in English|
|Language name||piemontèis||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||Q15085 - 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.|
|Project name||Wiksionari||"Wiktionary" in your language|
|Project namespace||Wiksionari||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||Discussion an sël Wiksionari||"Wiktionary talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)|
|Enable uploads||yes||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.
|Project logo||File:...||135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)|
|Default project timezone||Europe/Brussels||"Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)|
|Additional namespaces||For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"|
|Additional settings||Anything else that should be set|
Piedmontese is considered a dialect in Italy and there aren't laws that protect it. According to the data of the University of Turin, 2 million people can speak it but cannot write piedmontese and don't know most of the words when they are too dissimilar to Italian.
So it could be very useful for Piedmontese to create a free project to collect the less known words and rediscover them and return to use them to have again a finer and richer language as it was many years ago. I dont't joke when I tell you that the youngs' Piedmontese is an Italian speech pronounced with a heavy and funny regional accent.
Obviously we're going to actuate this beginning from the Piedmontese Wikipedia. There are a lot of elders who have a very deep knowledge of Piedmontese, but often they simply havent't the resources to sproud it and communicate it to others. I hope you'll agree with me! Good night!

- There is already a thriving Wikipedia in Piedmontese and the test project has enough content to start, in my opinion. πr2 (t • c) 02:05, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
