Approval of Wp/sdc[edit]

Ladies / Gentlemen, I am one of the users who have been trying a number of months to make the Wikipedia in the Sassaresu language (Wp/sdc/ [1] - a variant of the old and respectable Sardinian language) come out of the Incubator. And right, now where we have reached and surpassed the 1,000 pages (1,206 - see: [2] ) and are ready to claim an honorable place for Sassarese, among the regional Wikipedias of Europe. Due to recent editing, Wikipedia in linga sassaresa is now well developed. I thus propose for the Committee to approve its coming out of the Incubator. Please review the project for final approval. Thanks. Sincerely yours, --Sirmio Cabinigre 12:37, 1 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dear Sirmio Cabinigre, good to see you. I know your community is committed to it. And your achievements will be positively reviewed. It's been this month that your community met the minimum requirements for approval, so I'd like to wait another month. I would like to request comments on approval on March 21st if your work continues. Or another langcom member may make a request before that. Thanks. --Sotiale (talk) 01:26, 5 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Our work continues and today we have 1.276 pages of text. In this month of March we already have 4 editors. Sincerely.--Sirmio Cabinigre 14:29, 21 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
We expect a response from Language committee. The project Wp/sdc/ is increasing regularly. We now have 1,413 pages. We expect a response from the Language Committee.. --Sirmio Cabinigre 16:34, 22 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Interference occurs between WP/sro (Campidanese) and WP/sdc (Sassarese) using the same language, because the Campidanese cannot be enabled. I believe that to solve the problem it is necessary to quickly get the Sassarese from Incubator. Sincerely--Sirmio Cabinigre 12:34, 23 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Being one of the contributors to the Wikipedia in the Sassaresu language I also support the request to have the project come out of the incubator at last. All the best, --Luensu1959 (talk) 13:59, 23 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Though not being, unfortunately, a native speaker of Sassarese, I learn it, which means I can speak and write it a bit. Actually not that bad, pretty well - so I was told at least several times. :) There are between 90.000 and 160.000 native speakers of this Sardo-Corsican transitional language. I am sure that as soon as the real Sassarese Wikipedia opens there will be more authors and contributors finding their way to it. It is only little known and visible as Incubator Wiki, I suppose.

Strong support Strong support from me! Definitely. - Li sassaresi sò li più forthi! e ;) --Jun Misugi (talk) 07:18, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

trv.wikipedia.org problem[edit]

On the wiki, it seems like it contain pages written in four different languages, Seediq Tgdaya, Seediq Toda, Seediq Truku, and Truku, and articles in different languages are being placed inside different categories in the same wiki. According to explanation at Wikimedia Taiwan/IncuWPTA, it seems like the situation is due to same ISO language code being assigned to multiple language families, and thus they have to share a same Wikipedia.

Is there any better methods than using Wikipedia Category to contain and separate work of different languages there? C933103 (talk) 06:26, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Languages must be sufficiently unique so that they "could not coexist on a more general wiki. In most cases, this excludes regional dialects and different written forms of the same language." (LPP). The "languages" you mention are dialected e.g. according to en:Seediq_language#Subdivisions. In some cases, it is advisable to obtain separate ISO codes if there are really different languages. However, this is mainly something the contributors of the wiki itself should discuss. -- MF-W 14:21, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm here by requesting approval, for Wikinews Setswana , I will translate more information to Setswana soon. Thank YouRebel Agent (talk) 17:33, 21 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

You have made the first edit ever there. Congratulations to that! For approval of a new separate wiki however, there needs to be a constant activity throughout at least several months by at least several users. --MF-W 21:23, 21 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
