Request for Cameroon languages
Regarding your requests for new Wikipedia versions in several Cameroon languages, I have no idea where the pages are supposed to be located, who your friends are, or even how to verify that they did actually, in fact, create the requests that you purported to have disappeared. If you could give me links to the pages that they are supposed to be located, that may help me in determining the cause. First of all, you should provide information as to who or what your friends actually are on the Wikimedia projects. Second, I suggest you get a few native speakers of the Wikipedia language versions you propose to help you work on the test projects and indicate who they are, because they are vital to verifying the creation of the new Wikipedia as required in the [[Meta:Language proposal policy#Requisites|]] "Requisites for eligibility: #4". Please remember to also indicate who else is working on the test projects involved, and to format your requests properly when you create requests like Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Kwasio and Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Akoose, or otherwise they will be rejected. We generally would not want another French Wikipedia duplicate on the books. Considering all the above-related hassle it takes to create just on e Wikipedia, I would advise you to first start working on a single Wikimedia project before moving on to other language editions. :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 01:56, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
It seems that some missunderstanding is happen. I'm here in Cameroon working for the German Cultural Center "Goethe-Institute". One of our missions is to provide access to informations and also access to information in locale languages. This is the framework why we invited people to a workshop about how to create a wikipedia in a Cameroon languages. The workshop was a succes and about 30 people went on to request wikipedia in their language. These are the eleven languages you've seen (Also Kwasio and Akoose). All these people are highly motivated and of course native speakers (N). The participants for Kwasio and Akoose had a problem with ther notebooks (because of an redirection caused by malware they wasn't able to create a page in wikimedia. That's the reason why the empty page was created by me and later filled out by the respective participants. I'm not a requester for theses languages, and as I know both filled out the "community line" with their names and accounts. Now I've noted that the request are both deleted, without knowing the exact reason. So I'll ask you if it will possible to reestablish the deleted request and to tell me exactly why they've been deleted. I can't accept the reason given "No meaningful content or history". There is still the problem that you could see the requests meanwhile on saturday evening when I checked the "meta request" links at all the respectivs Wp/ISO639 project there was nothing than empty pages. Maybe it is possible that the system went amok because there was to many request coming from the same IP ? I think so because several times the captcha was presented when the people send their request.
Or has the process been missunderstand and the request should be send once the final step to become an own subdomain.wikipedia.org is targeted?
For my part I can repeat it one time: all the requests of this day has been send with good intentions and of course no one wanted to reopen a new french version. You have to be aware that the MediaWiki skills of the participants are still on the way to be perfect. But who would be perfect the day of his birth? So please would you give them a chance and bring back the request.
PS: I hope that the project pages will not be deleted too? UJung 15:11, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
