submitted verification final decision

This language has been verified as eligible.
The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.

Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval.

If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.

A committee member provided the following comment:

Please contribute to the test project. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:28, 8 January 2019 (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:

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 This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/tehran "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.

Arguments against[edit]

  • Oppose: The name of this dialect is not Luri Laki. It's a dialect of sourthern Kurdish (here the article on Wikipedia) That means the user is a not a native speaker of Laki but a Lur. There is this disscussion even on Wikipiedia. Some Lur people want to impose their theories about Laks and Laki dialect. I don't believe that, it'll be useful to create this wiktionary without presence of some Lak users.--Gomada (talk) 22:13, 13 January 2016 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose: Laki is a dialects of southern Kurdish not Luri. (here the article on Wikipedia) That means the user is a not a native speaker of Laki but a Lur. Some Lur people want to impose their theories about Laks and Kurds. 18:05,Sunday - 2020 19 July (UTC)
