Wikisource Bashkir[edit]

Please check the Wikisource Bashkir. Now, it tests section has more wikisources than created and approved in 17 other sections-site. The extensions are also translated. Thanks!

p.s. «The number of users that support or oppose the project is irrelevant».--Arxivist (talk) 16:20, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

"The number of users that support or oppose the project is irrelevant" but on the other hand, the number of users that are actively contributing the test project is relevant. By checking automated statistics, it looks like this project is inactive for at least one year, do you have ideas on inviting at least 3 more users to contribute each other? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:59, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: Thanks for the answer. But I have to disagree with your argument. As the administrator of the Ukrainian section of Wikisource, I would like to say that activity does not matter on Wikisource. Inactive (1-2 users) Wikisource projects have been around for years. I remember how there were periods and 5-7 months with an activity of 2 people in the Ukrainian section (more than 10 edits) and nothing, the project did not have to be closed.
Moreover, many sections are recognized and have fewer texts than the Bashkir section. Where is the required activity of three people indicated? What are the rules? People even in an incubator state have proven that they can create more articles than recognized sections. Native speakers are a lot. Translated pages are done. The language library is rich. Could you tell me who can help with this issue, since the Committee is not fulfilling its functions? A similar story is with the Georgian section (there are also texts (there are even more than 20+ sections and the language has a history older than English in its modern form). It seems to me, but you do not understand the Wikisource project and its activity and specifics. I can give a guarantee, that if the project is taken out of the incubator, the project will grow up and his activity. All the formal requirements for the committee are fulfilled. --Arxivist (talk) 22:13, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
By the way, the statistics of pages deducted from the index space are not even counted. So where do the additional statistics come from?--Arxivist (talk) 23:03, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

Approval of Gungbe Wikipedia (Wp/guw)[edit]

Hello! The gungbe wikipedia has been quite active since June with complete localisation, so I think it is time to consider the approval of Gungbe Wikipedia.--Samatics (talk) 05:45, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

I'll investigate it and discuss it on langcom. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 05:54, 6 November 2021 (UTC)
@Sotiale. Thank you for your attention to this. Please is there any progress? --Samatics (talk) 04:44, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
It took some time to exclude some abusers from the statistics. And by the way, I've been busy lately too.. It has been found that they edited your incubator wiki, and I'm excluding their edits to check the correct activity. Don't worry, this will not negatively affect the evaluation of your request. I will report the request to langcom no later than 20 November. --Sotiale (talk) 10:45, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
@Sotiale, thank you for the continuous engagement and finding time out of your busy schedule to attend to this request. I would like to know if you were able to report our request to langcom. Any update? Thanks.--Samatics (talk) 05:46, 21 November 2021 (UTC)
@Samatics: I sent my mail requesting comments to the langcom public mailing list. Submission of opinions from other langcom members begins. If there is enough support, langcom will go through the process for approval; As to whether this language was actually written as a Gungbe language, langcom may be consulted by experts. Langcom may ask you for help with this process if they need it. When this process is finished, langcom will contact you regarding the wiki settings. --Sotiale (talk) 10:57, 21 November 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the update.--Samatics (talk) 11:27, 21 November 2021 (UTC)


Approval of Pa'O Karen Wikipedia (Wp/blk)[edit]

I am the founder of Pa'O Wikipedia, I also do a lot of Pa'O translations on Translatewiki, Incubators also have sufficient articles of Pa'O language. I would like to know what is required for Pa'O language approval, check out all of the things I mentioned and explain the requirements to me again, thanks.--Music writer Dr.Intobesa of Japanese idol NMB48 and BNK48.

It looks like neither this, nor the Wiktionary one are eligible for now, means that the language verifiction isn't completed yet, any ideas on how this language is eligible for Wikimedia wikis? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:51, 25 November 2021 (UTC)
Hi, @Liuxinyu970226:, I often have problems using the wikipedia project, the problem with using my wikipedia project is that I do not know how to use the wikipedia project properly, for whatever reason, I'm trying to be the best at using the wikipedia project. I initially tried to open Wiktionary Pa'O, but a Burmese admin said Wikipedia Pa'O was first approved, Wiktionary Pa'O must be confirmed, so I would like Wikipedia Pa'O to be confirmed first. Please advise me on what I should do next to get Wikipedia Pa’O approval, I'm too busy right now, so I will be late for my reply, if I'm late in replying, I'm sorry, thanks.--Music writer Dr.Intobesa of Japanese idol NMB48 and BNK48. (talk) 08:53, 26 November 2021 (UTC)

It was thought that there was no problem with eligibility, so the status was changed for both requests. Wp/blk has been active recently and has been active for about 3 months including this month. I hope these activities will last a few months and show your community sustainability. Please note that this is my personal opinion, other committee members may have different opinions. --Sotiale (talk) 12:44, 26 November 2021 (UTC)
