Notification from Sylheti Wikinews[edit]

Hi, earlier we got the following feedback from the language committee: "There needs to be sustained activity from several users (at least 3 or 4, preferably more) for at least three months before we will consider a project for approval." Just to notify you that, we have relayed the information to the community and currently, we meet the above-mentioned criteria. More info: Wikimedia Incubator, Wikidata, Meta-Wiki -- ꠢꠣꠍꠘ ꠞꠣꠎꠣ (talk) 10:30, 15 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ꠢꠣꠍꠘ ꠞꠣꠎꠣ: Hi. I think it's better to give Sylheti Wikipedia an approval review first. I would like to know what you think. --Sotiale (talk) 10:29, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And one more question, there are a few things I would like to ask you about in relation to this project. It's about the scripts you currently use in your incubator project. It has been pointed out that this project uses the sylheti nagri script. Is this accessible to a large number of sylheti users or is it easily convertible? Or are there alternatives to other approaches if the majority of speakers cannot use this script? --Sotiale (talk) 11:09, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Sotiale: All good, I am just notifying the updates.
Is this project previously used any other script in last 9 years? I had a quick look at the history of the main page and could not find any such information.
It has Google fonts, Microsoft, Apple and Google Keyboards so definitely accessible worldwide.
Yes, any soft copy, electronic files easily convertable, using various Tools (even someone can convert a whole Wiki page in one click to multiple scripts, if they wish).--ꠢꠣꠍꠘ ꠞꠣꠎꠣ (talk) 06:40, 18 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks and appreciating you for keeping eye on Sylheti Wikipedia. So, what's the condition of approval of Sylheti Wikipedia? Could you let us know please. ~~ AbuSayeed (talk) 08:26, 25 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Notification about proposed approval of Talysh Wikipedia[edit]

Hi. The language committee intends to approve Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Talysh. If you have any objections to that based on the language proposal policy, please tell us here on this page in the next 7 days. Meanwhile, the community is asked to check (and if necessary, complete) the wiki settings as indicated on the request page. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 12:24, 21 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Patriot Kor: Hi. You are encouraged to review the logo and wiki settings on the request page above with your community members. Since this setting takes time to change once set, it is recommended that you check it right now. --Sotiale (talk) 12:26, 21 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi dear @Sotiale. First of all, I would like to thank you and the Azerbaijani government, which has never spared its support in language. I do not have any objections. The carriers of our language use the Latin alphabet entirely. There must be some changes. They are as follows:
  • In the original, the spelling of the language should be "Tolıš".
  • There are two abbreviated versions: The first version is used as "tlš" and the second version is used as "tol". Both versions are accepted versions. (Only in our language. It's not an international standard.)
  • Furthermore, I would like to bring to your attention that "WIKIPEDIA" should be written as "VİKİPEDİÁ" in the logo.
  • Similarly, "The Free Encyclopedia" should be written as "Ozoda Ensiklopediá".
I would be glad if you could help with these important issues. Patriot Kor (talk) 13:35, 21 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, Patriot Kor. Thanks for the reply. You can directly edit the above page. And the logo should also be modified by your community, would you like to find a contributor who can modify the svg? --Sotiale (talk) 14:21, 21 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, @Sotiale. Can you suggest a contributor who can modify the SVG according to the standards? Thanks in advance. Patriot Kor (talk) 07:09, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There are no users that immediately come to mind. Ask the users who contributed to the creation of the svg file. --Sotiale (talk) 03:00, 23 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Patriot Kor: Jon Harald Søby modified commons:File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-tly.svg and tlywiki is now live. Congratulation! --Sotiale (talk) 13:40, 31 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for Activation of Occitan Wikisource[edit]

Dear language Committee members,

The Occitan Wikisource has being aproved since the 9th of February 2008. The project does not have its own domain, so I request that the Occitan version of Wikisource be an independent site. A large number of documents are to be uploaded, notably from databases such as Gallica, CIRDOC, the Archives of the Crown of Aragon and other. Please take this request into consideration.

King regards, Lhanars (talk)
