This is an official Incubator policy.
You may edit it, but please discuss major changes on the talk page first.


The policy says that, on "Wx/xx", you need to put a template, namely {{test wiki}}.

This page is the documentation of that template and its parameters.

Parameters[edit]

Required parameters[edit]

  • status=open/imported/approved/invalidcode/rejected/tocreate
  • status=open/imported/approved/invalidcode/tocreate
  • language= defines both [[wikipedia:{{{language}}} language]] (please check in preview if the link goes right!) and the Meta request (see meta below)
    • (optionally) WP-article for exceptions
    • (optionally) meta-link for exceptions (only subpage, i.e. Wikipedia English so not Requests for new languages/Wikipedia English)

Optional (important) parameters[edit]

  • meta=yes if it has a request at Meta. If it hasn't, don't use this parameter.
  • dir=RTL for a Right-To-Left language (default is LTR, so parameter is in many cases not needed).
  • macro=xxx when it is member of a macrolanguage (xxx being to ISO 639 code of the macrolanguage).

Other optional parameters[edit]

  • mainpage=Wp/en/Main Page if the second part "Main Page" has a Main Page title that has not yet been translated in the "mainpage" system message (translatable on betawiki:) or if it has a custom name (i.e. not the same as the system message). You can see the current version on MediaWiki:Mainpage/languagecode.
  • meta-n=3 - if the meta request is not the first one (e. g. Requests for languages/Wikipedia English 3)
  • If the test has been approved:
    • bug=13264 where the number is the bugzilla request to create the wiki.
    • created=Date is the date on which it has been created.
    • before-incubator=yes for wikis which were not yet approved by the Language committee (it's possible that some were on Incubator though)
  • importdate for the status toimport: To announce a date for the import

Other cases[edit]

In some cases, it is not appropriate to use {{test wiki}}, but rather one of the following templates:

To do[edit]

  • Add parameter support for rejection by langcom (with a parameter for the reason, maybe)
  • Add support for old (rejected as part of a reform of the request process), although this might not be appropriate anymore..
  • Moved to Wikia (incubatorplus), see {{wikia}}
