O que o Wikimedia Incubator hospeda

Iniciar um novo idioma de teste

Consulte Ajuda:Manual para mais informação.
  • Você pode começar um novo teste de idioma dos projetos mencionados acima, independente se você tem um pedido no Meta[1], embora seja recomendado primeiro pedir confirmaçãopela página "Incubator:Requests for starting a test"[2]. Não é necessário ter uma proposta no Meta, mas sem, seu teste não será capaz de ter uma própria wiki.
  • Deve fazer o seguinte:
  • Projects must match main m:WM:LPP requirements: project must not already exist, be unique language and have a valid language code.

Encerramento ou exclusão

Common reasons for test deletion

  • If a test does not have a valid ISO 639 language code, it should be deleted.
  • You may only propose a deletion of a test language which does not have a proposal on Meta or is rejected by the langcom.
    • If it is rejected, the test can be kept for future proposals when the requirements are fulfilled (if this is possible), or else it should be proposed for deletion.
  • If a project is given final approval, the test's pages will be imported to the new subdomain wiki. All pages should be deleted, except the info page, where a notice will be added (see Incubator:Policy/Test wiki info page for further information).

Test deletion procedure

  • Propose it on Incubator:Requests for deletions
    • Further instructions are given there
  • If needed, an XML file must be exported (needed means: if the test is not vandalism or nonsense – in general, use common sense)
  • If requested, it can be exported to Incubator Plus

Whilst on Incubator


All article pages in a test have a prefix of the form "project/langcode/", for example "wp/en/" for English Wikipedia.

  • Images cannot be uploaded to Incubator; they must be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. (Note that this means that uploading is disabled.)

Test Admins

  • Whilst on Incubator, you may apply for test adminship. This gives you a few admin rights (to delete and to block users) on your test.

See Incubator:Administrators#Test-administrators for the policy of this.

Você pode encontrar a política sobre os administradores, burocratas etc. em Incubadora: Administradores.

User behaviour

  • If there is sufficient reason to (e.g. vandalism), a user technically able to block may block a user for any timespan appropriate for the action.
  • Users are not allowed to use multiple accounts, unless it is a bot or otherwise explicitly stated to be used for a specific purpose.

Usage of namespaces

Main (+ talk) only for test wikis, all pages must be prefixed
Template all templates must be prefixed, except a few templates that are used for general Incubator purposes (like Template:Policy)
Module all modules must be prefixed, except a few templates that are used for general Incubator purposes (like Module:Test wikis)
Category todas as categorias devem ser prefixadas, com exceção de algumas categorias que são utilizadas para fins da Incubadora geral (como Categoria: Manutenção: (todos))

only for general Incubator purposes (like this page)

  • To create a project or help page for your test, put the namespace after the prefix. The page will then technically be in main here, but will be put in the correct location when your project is approved and created.
