Sindhi Wikipedia in Devanagari script[edit]

Please add Sindhi language in devanagari script as in India Sindhi is written in devanagari script but existing Sindhi wikipedia is in Arabic script which is used in Pakistan. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gd hasani (talk) 17:46, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

You'll get farther if you don't vandalize pages while you make your requests.
If you're serious about this, your best option is to ask the community at Sindhi Wikipedia to allow for multiple writing systems. (See Kazakh Wikipedia and Serbo-Croatian Wikipedia for examples.)
If you nevertheless want a separate project in Devanagari script, feel free to create a new RFL. However, because sd-arab and sd-deva have the same ISO 639–1 and –3 codes, that request is unlikely to succeed.
Finally, you can create a project at Incubator Plus on Wikia. The Kashmiri Wikipedia is in Arabic, but there is a parallel project on Wikia in Devanagari. StevenJ81 (talk) 18:01, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

It's the best time to accept the request by the committee see this link for Generated statistics

If we want to encourage the development of this wikipedia and the future wiktionary . we need this acceptance, I advocate a positive response from the committee as soon as possible. - Mohammed Bachounda (talk) 09:43, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Aux étudiants qui travaillent sur ce projet-ci: SVP ne !votez plus. Il ne fera pas de différence. Ce que vous devez faire est continuer vos travails sur le projet. (Voyez ci-dessous.) Merci. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:05, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
Je pense que tout le monde comprend le point. Permettez-moi de vous suggérer, cependant, que le Comité des langues cherche généralement à obtenir une participation soutenue d'une communauté active sur une certaine période - et le Comité définit généralement «une communauté active sur une période de temps» comme étant au moins trois utilisateurs, non-grisés, à moins trois mois. Donc, à ce stade, ce projet n'aurait que deux mois. En outre, bien qu'il y ait des exceptions, 400 pages sont un peu sur le côté léger pour l'approbation. Donc, je vais suggérer - et c'est ma propre suggestion, pas celle de LangCom - que tout le monde continue de travailler dessus pendant un mois et de voir où vous serez. À ce moment-là, vous pourriez avoir un bon dossier pour approbation. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:48, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
Merci StevenJ81 pour les conseilles, bien que c'est à la limite d'un vote de masse ,je voulait mesurer et la réactivité de la communauté et la réactivité du comité qui avec tous l'estime du travail qu'il fait dans ce domaine ,je fait passer le message aux etudiants du programme d’éducation qui ont participé au développement du projet dans l'incubateur. :) --Mohammed Bachounda (talk) 21:18, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Please do not vote any more. Your votes will not make a difference. The only thing that will make a difference is for volunteers to continue to work on the project. ... SVP ne votez plus. Il ne fera pas de différence. Ce que vous devez faire est continuer vos travails sur le projet. StevenJ81 (talk) 00:52, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

@Rachitrali:
  1. Denigrating other projects will not help you make your case for your project.
  2. The rules for projects that already exist are not necessarily the same as the rules for projects looking to become approved. It is possible that some or all of the projects you cited above would not be approved if they came up for approval today. But since they do exist, they are subject only to the rules for existing projects.
  3. The only way to close a project that already exists and to move it back to Incubator is if it is closed consistent with Closing projects policy.
I suggest you focus on recruiting more contributors to your community and on continuing to grow the Khowar Wikipedia test. Don't worry about other tests and projects unless you see a lot of vandalism in them. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:38, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Request for launching Wikinews, Dutch version[edit]

Request for launching Wikinews, Dutch version from the Dutch Wikinews Community

During the last months, there has been a lot of activity on the Dutch Wikinews. The project is currently active with an average of 4 to 10 new articles each day. It's the intention to build a coherent relationship with the news sections of Wikipedia in Dutch. There are also some ideas to work together with journalism schools in collaboration with 'Wikimedia the Netherlands', but those have not yet been made concrete. To keep the project growing, it's designated to launch the Wikinews officially with an own wiki. (An additional request is to rename Wikinews in Dutch to 'Wikinieuws', the Dutch translation of the name and to purchase the domains wikinieuws.nl and wikinieuws.be redirecting to this Wiki). --LIVE NIEUWS (talk) 09:50, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Support- this request is in my name as well, as I am currently an active contributor to nl-wikinews too. It's been here for almost one day and a half now, it would be nice if it could be handled soon. De Wikischim (talk) 13:38, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

I've been watching you two, and others, work hard at this over the last several months. So I support. But do understand that these things take time. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:59, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply, but I was afraid that none of the Language committee members had read this message. Meanwhile we continue to work on the project in the Incubator. --LIVE NIEUWS (talk) 21:47, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
@LIVE NIEUWS: That said: this is really still a three-person operation (mainly). That's technically enough, but see if you can recruit a few more contributors. That will help your cause. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:33, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
We are very busy with that, but it isn't easy. Many contributors do not want to cooperate until it's out of the incubator. --LIVE NIEUWS (talk) 21:47, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Le projet wikipédia Guyanais ![edit]

Bonjour, Oui enfaite il a de cela quelques mois que j'ai rajouter le créole guyanais comme candidat pour le projet de nouvelle langue sur Wikimedia et je n'ai toujours pas reçu de réponse, S'il vous plaît, j'ai vue sur votre page d'utilisateur que vous travaillez pour la Wikimedia fondation, faite que quelqu'un jette au moins un petit coup d'œil sur mon projet, même ne serai-ce que vous, car je parle Français (je suis français), Anglais (J'ai appris tout seul) et Créole Guyanais (Je suis plus précisément guyanais) et ça fait déjà 2 ans que je suis sur Wikipédia, surtout que ce projet me tient vraiment à cœur, SVP faite quelque chose pour Moi

I speack english Too ! LeGuyanaisPure (talk) 22:31, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

@LeGuyanaisPure:
C'est vrai que le Comité des langues doit decider si le Créole guyanais est éligible pour un projet. Même si le comité ferait ça, avant de créer un nouveau Wikipédia, le comité voudra voir qu'il y a une communauté qui contribuera sur le Wiki. Donc, vous (la communauté) devez commencer un test-wiki chez l'Incubateur pour montrer au comité que vous êtes sérieux. Tu peux commencer immédiatement ici: incubator:Wp/gcr. Bonne chance!
