Request for Coptic Language Wikipedia

Mit Inspire
Hello,
Given that a number of requests for conlang Wikipedias or Wikipedias for
languages with small numbers of speakers have been made and accepted, a
Coptic Wikipedia does not seem very preposterous.

I request that a Coptic language Wikipedia be added, so that the growing
number of language revivalists inside and outside Egypt may be able to
practice the language by reading and writing it in its most current form.

There is a discussion open  at
https://meta.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikipedia_Coptic_3
- you can add your voice there.


I think though that the problem any wikipedia that relies on a lot of
informal speakers of a language is that it can become a chore rather
than fun and the entries can look halfhearted. Just look at half a
dozen random pages on the Latin Wikipedia

https://la.wikipedia.org/wiki/Specialis:Pagina_fortuita

Anyway, raise your voice and recruit some editors who will commit a
few hours a week.

Good luck

michael

The single most important thing to do if you want this to happen is to have
several people who know this language well and who write good articles in
the incubator, which already exists:
