Same template in:

  1. Korean - ko:Template:활동중인 위키백과
  2. Chinese - zh:Template:Active Wikipedias

Inactive active languages[edit]

I don't see how reserved subdomains and non-existent wikis can be counted among active Wikipedias. See, for example, isiXhosa, Zhuang, and isiZulu.

Sorting[edit]

Whose bright idea was it to sort this thing by language code (the language codes are not even shown, let alone an explanation given)? How are we supposed to find languages? Brianjd | Why restrict HTML? | 12:17, 2005 Apr 2 (UTC)

I reordered the list by language names. The ordering was also changed in the past, another ordering: [1]. I used tranliterations from Finnish Wikipedia language list. -Hapsiainen 16:12, Apr 2, 2005 (UTC)
Oh, not seeing this discussion, I switched it to language code as I was updating the list. I think language code is easier, but the previous method was no apparent system. Some were alphabetized apparently by code, others by English name, others by foreign name, others seemingly randomly... Anyway, go ahead and change the order to whatever you want, as long as it's consistent. TUF-KAT 04:05, 1 May 2005 (UTC)
I again ordered the list by language names. The list ordered by language codes is easier only, if the reader knows almost all of them and knows to expect that the list is ordered by them. This is very unlikely.
If you see inconsistencies, report them here, don't just revert the change. -Hapsiainen 15:36, May 1, 2005 (UTC)

correction needed?[edit]

chiTumbuka (Tumbuka) -- Česká (Czech)

Ain't these should be in reverse order? --TarmoK 12:35, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

They indeed should. I corrected it. -Hapsiainen 14:35, May 19, 2005 (UTC)

Sorting order[edit]

I've just corrected some sorting errors, but sorting order used here is still inconsistent. Some Wikipedias that use non-Latin script are sorted by their transliterated name without diacritics (e.g. for Chuvash: Чӑваш → Ĉăvaŝ → cavas), other are sorted by their name transcribed into English (e.g. for Kashmiri: कश्मीरी → kashmiirii). I think this should be somehow standarized. Filemon 18:46, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

No Ido once again[edit]

I see Ido is missing from both Wikipedia and Wiktionary when I get a "Wiki does not exist yet" message. Please add it. Mithridates 00:29, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Sámegiella?...[edit]

Let's start from the beginning... I noticed that this language, in the en portion of the wiktionary, was given the code "se". All well till now, just that... it doesn't exist. I am curious why it has a code and even a reference to it in a translation table if it does not have an entry / domain in the wiktionary table... Oh, yeah, one more thing, in the code Template:Trad the code is well shown, in the (Davvisámegiella) one it is seen as unknown format. Can this be fixed, at least the language be added by someone experimented in this so the code won't look wrong anymore?

Modification[edit]

I have removed the Moldovan Wiki from the list because it isn't active anymore, it is blocked.

bcl[edit]

Bikol Sentral (bcl) not Bikol (bi)

it is already fixed. it should not be bikol sentral, bikol central. we already redirected it at (bcl). Vincentangeles005 (talk) 12:56, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
