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

Since the idea of Silesian Wikipedia was a good idea, I've decided to run a new request for the Silesian Wiktionary Project. A lot of people would like to share their knowledge about the Silesian words and so they do on our Wikipedia, but that isn't allowed (they write eg. "Bana to je po polsku kolej." - Bana is "a rail" in Polish. - this isn't an article so we delete it). There is no Silesian-Silesian dictionary, so we would have an opportunity to clasify the Silesian words and create some bilingual, but Silesian dictionary. There is a vast number of Silesian varieties and dialects and the Wiktionary would allow us to show the beauty of this diversity :) Timpul 15:20, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Support. Fascinating language. I, for one, as a novice Polish speaker, would be very interested in browsing this Wiktionary and observing its development. -- OlEnglish (Talk) 19:30, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support. J/w. LUCPOL 13:04, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Arguments against[edit]

Other discussion[edit]

It's a good idea with a Silesian Wiktionary, but I think you should wait little before you start a Wiktionary. I think more people have use for a Wikipedia, try to develop the Wikipedia. M.M.S. 07:05, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

szl.Wikipedia has (only) 1,000 (short) articles, but well written, and very well organized ; let the language – or dialect… ;-) – grow ! « What (we have) to do ? A dictionary ! » --Budelberger 00:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC) (Flag of France.svg).
Already has almost two thousand articles. Przemub 07:45, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
"Develop an active test project;" - done, could you please mark this box? Przemub 07:45, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
