Questions about requirements of the Wiktionary in Lombard[edit]

The Lombard dictionary has more than 500 entries and some help pages. Moreover localization requirements are met. https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wt/lmo

What's still needed for it to be verified as eligible?

What's still needed for final approval?

Every wiki project has not only entry pages, but also pages with namespaces. Will they be created automatically as the Wiktionari is opened or must / can they be created before? Till now I have created some pages with the Wiktionary prefix including the community portal.--Gat lombart (talk) 15:16, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

@Gat lombart: In theory, it's better that you should invite at least two more friends to contribute with you. The catanalysis told me that you're the only active user of the test. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 07:19, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
I have marked the request as eligible. As the user above said, there should be at least several contributors over at least several months for approval. --MF-W 17:01, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
@MF-W: I think there is activity. For example, even Index page recognition statistics are not counted.--Arxivist (talk) 11:05, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

Request fo approval of Tashlhit wikipedia[edit]

Hi I'm one of the actif users on Tashlhit Wikipedia (wp/shi), can our project be approved in the near future. Lhoussine AIT TAYFST (talk) 20:43, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Hello, this is already in discussion, the recent news about this said that the conversion system between Tifinagh and Latin are bi-directional now, and if it works well, then site creation will be as soon as possible. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:20, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Thank you very much, we believe that our project will be a real source of information so soon Lhoussine AIT TAYFST (talk) 14:06, 7 March 2021 (UTC)

Request for rejection of Shanghainese Wikipedia[edit]

Hello. Now we already have Wu Chinese Wikipedia. Besides, there is no valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code for Shanghainese. There is not even an incubator for this Wikipedia. We should simply reject it.--John Smith Ri (talk) 09:45, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

Bahasa Angkola[edit]

Bahasa Angkola adalah salah satu bahasa daerah yang terutama dipertuturkan di daerah Tapanuli bagian Selatan, meliputi Tapanuli Selatan, Padangsidimpuan, Padang Lawas Utara, Padang Lawas, dan sebagian kecil Mandailing natal, Sumatra Utara, Indonesia. Bahasa Angkola termasuk dalam rumpun bahasa Angkolanesia, dan merupakan bagian dari kelompok bahasa-bahasa sansekerta. Bahasa Angkola adalah bahasa yang paling mirip dengan bahasa mandailing, di samping letak geografis yang berdekatan, bahasa Angkola sedikit lebih lembut intonasinya daripada bahasa mandailing dan juga memiliki kemiripan dengan bahasa Mandailing,cuma perbedaan mendasar terletak pada intonasi Angkola yang lebih tegas dibandingkan Mandailing. Kemiripan antara Bahasa Angkola dengan Mandailing dipengaruhi oleh domisilinya yang berdekatan dan saling mendukungadat istiadat budayabya mendekatia adat istiadat mengikutiajaran agama islam.

Request to approve Wikipedia Mandailing[edit]

I propose for the Committee to approve Wikipedia Mandailing (btm.wp). The level of contribution in the past year has been quite good, despite some months being on the low side, but there was a Jan 2020 edit-a-thon and public campaigns supported by Wikimedia Indonesia that led to a small but consistent Mandailing contributor base. Tagging Mandailing speakers (Simartampua, Apundung, IHLubis, Santabi sapulu, Ahmad Abadi Rangkuti) and WMID folks (Cahyo and Harditaher). dwf² 18:10, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

@David Wadie Fisher-Freberg: Except IHLubis and Ahmad Abadi Rangkuti, there doesn't seem have enough activitions in the past 3 months, will there have another one active user? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:34, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: I am not sure about that, but I would try to connect with the Mandailing editors. dwf² 15:50, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

New Wikipedia suggestion[edit]

I want to develop a new Wikipedia for Old Manipuri (language code: omp). Modern Manipuri (language code: mni) Wikipedia already exist. What shall I do? What are the required steps I should follow? Haoreima (talk) 08:52, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@Haoreima: did you read the main page Language proposal policy? it lists all the requisites. For you case, look in particular at the parts about old languages « The language of the proposal has a sufficient number of fluent users » and « Only Wikisource wikis in ancient or historical languages are accepted ».
