Re: Wikipedia-l Digest, Vol 133, Issue 4

y.720qsdfgh
So now can I create (myself) the Wikipedia? Or what I have to do ?
And as Western Yugur has no official writing, can I propose a Turkic based latin script ?

Re: Wikipedia-l Digest, Vol 133, Issue 4

Isaac Olatunde
I suggest you should wait for a while to build a community of editors who can contribute to that language Wikipedia but you can  start a thread at https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical).

Best,

Olatunde Isaac.

Not sure where Olatunde's information comes from, but there is a process to
request a Wikipedia in a new language.

https://meta.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages

Be advised that if you are not a native speaker and you're the only
contributor, your chances of approval are slim to none. I recommend you
find native speakers and gather a group of people who will contribute to
the project together. You may start a test Wikipedia on the incubator,
http://incubator.wikimedia.org/

Re: Wikipedia-l Digest, Vol 133, Issue 4

Isaac Olatunde
Marcos, what information are you talking about? Did I gave any contrary information? Based on the language proposal policy, there are basic requirement that must be met to request a new language Wikipedia and one of the requirements is that the proposal must have sufficient number of native speakers of the language to form a viable community and audience. On this note, it is important to seek for editors who are willing to help in building such community and one of the places you can find such editors is the "Village pump".

Best,

Olatunde Isaac.

Not sure where Olatunde's information comes from, but there is a process to
request a Wikipedia in a new language.

https://meta.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages

Be advised that if you are not a native speaker and you're the only
contributor, your chances of approval are slim to none. I recommend you
find native speakers and gather a group of people who will contribute to
the project together. You may start a test Wikipedia on the incubator,
http://incubator.wikimedia.org/

Re: Wikipedia-l Digest, Vol 133, Issue 4

masssly
New languages are started in the incubator and the process is not strict at all once its still incubating. And “find such editors [from] the Village pump? I don't think that's what the village pump is meant for.


So yes, just go ahead and start a test Wikipedia of your language in the incubator if that's what your enquiry is about, then look for people to help you develop it.


Good luck

Not sure where Olatunde's information comes from, but there is a process to
request a Wikipedia in a new language.

https://meta.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages

Be advised that if you are not a native speaker and you're the only
contributor, your chances of approval are slim to none. I recommend you
find native speakers and gather a group of people who will contribute to
the project together. You may start a test Wikipedia on the incubator,

Re: Wikipedia-l Digest, Vol 133, Issue 4

Isaac Olatunde
I agree with Marcos and thanks for your comment, Masssly. I actually know little or nothing about Yugur. My bad!

Best,
Olatunde Isaac.

New languages are started in the incubator and the process is not strict at all once its still incubating. And “find such editors [from] the Village pump? I don't think that's what the village pump is meant for.


So yes, just go ahead and start a test Wikipedia of your language in the incubator if that's what your enquiry is about, then look for people to help you develop it.


Good luck

Marcos, what information are you talking about? Did I gave any contrary information? Based on the language proposal policy, there are basic requirement that must be met to request a new language Wikipedia and one of the requirements is that the proposal must have sufficient number of native speakers of the language to form a viable community and audience. On this note, it is important to seek for editors who are willing to help in building such community and one of the places you can find such editors is the "Village pump".

Best,

Olatunde Isaac.
