Livvi-Karelian Wiki (olo)
Подскажите, как быть дальше. На данном этапе в Olo-wiki около 1000 статей, активная работа продолжается. Как нам выйти из инкубатора? There is about 1000 articles in Wiki-OLO. What we should do next? - Ilja.mos
Hi, Please approve the creation of the Ingush section of Wikipedia. This project has been inactive for a long time, have not been translated the main system messages, as well as numerous mistakes in the names and content of the articles inhibited the project. However, a great deal is corrected now, all main system messages are now translated. Added new articles and pages, including special pages. Categories for all the pages have been created and normalized. Some necessary templates and modules are also created and translated for normal work of Ingwiki. I am ready to continue to work to improve the wiki and make every effort for its development. Ingush Wikipedia must live ! Sincerely, MY Adam-Yourist (talk) 08:18, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Question about Hokkien Wikipedia
This isn't a request, but I'm not sure exactly where to ask this. I'm just wondering why Holopedia is written in POJ Romanization rather than Han characters. My understanding is that Han character based writing, at least for Taiwanese, is far more common than any Romanization based system.--Prisencolin (talk) 05:48, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
- @Prisencolin: Maybe the comment of Sunshine567 at nan:Wikipedia:Chhiū-á-kha#有關Wikia漢字版閩南語維基百科 will help you? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:17, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Semi-protected edit request on 25 August 2016
What it take to move a proposal from "discussion" phase to "verified as eligible"?
There are some really short proposals like the proposal for Wikipedia Reunionese Creole getting verified really quick, while on the other hand there are some proposals like Wikipedia Kupang Malay or Wikipedia European Portuguese 3 having some more detailed introduction/discussion and still not getting verified. What it take to make a proposal being move on to either on-hold or verified as eligible? C933103 (talk) 02:10, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
- @C933103: Since you mentioned Wikipedia European Portuguese 3, I'm wondering what's the problem in Portuguese wikis, only Brazil vs. Portugal? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 09:25, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
In the request, it said the request is on hold because "Mongolian script is written from top to down and MediaWiki doesn't support it yet. (Actually, even browsers don't support it yet, except Internet Explorer.) The request is on hold until software starts to support it.". However, it is no longer true in the current point of time. The Mediawiki software can also support displayinh top to down text to some extent although the interface is not ready, and both the latest Firefox and Chrome as well as some other browsers all supported top to down writing, as evidenced by navigating  in those browsers. Thus I believe the project status shall switch from on hold to verified as the computer support for the language is no longer a problem. C933103 (talk) 23:16, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi. Can we get some comments from the Language committee members about the status of the Wikivoyage Arabic request? The test project has been in Incubator since November 2012 and the required localization is at 100% for MediaWiki core and Extensions used by Wikimedia. (Check localization statistics.) The test wiki currently has 729 articles. --Meno25 (talk) 13:34, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
Ancient Greek Wikisource
I have just accidentally discovered that the request for Ancient Greek Wikisource had been verified as eligible project. The only condition is that English will be the default language for the interface.
I guess this status for the Ancient Greek Wikisource is still valid. But what is standing on the way to receive the final approval.
