このページでは、テストウィキの削除依頼や、インキュベーター本体に関連するページの削除依頼を行うためのページを紹介し、削除依頼の方法を解説しています。 特定のテストウィキの単体のページの削除について議論する場合は、そのテストウィキの編集者(特に試験版管理者)が最も活発に活動しているノートページ(テストウィキの井戸端ページなど)を利用して議論してください。 即時削除されるべきページには、{{delete}}タグをはり付け、適切な理由を示してください。


  • 即時削除依頼(荒らし、不要な修正、接頭辞の変換など)
  • 方針の「閉鎖または削除」に従ったテストウィキ自体の削除
  • 言語委員会による承認を受けテストウィキが新しいサブドメインのWikiにウィキ間インポートされた場合、インキュベーターのページは情報ページを除いて削除されます。



  • 即時削除の対象となりうるページ :
    • 基本的には即時削除のルールはMetaと同じです。
      • インキュベーター独自の即時削除のルールとして、間違った言語—無効なISO 639言語コードの接頭辞を持つか、内容が接頭辞の言語とは別の言語である場合—は削除が可能です。
      • 同様に、正しい接頭辞を持つページも存在する間違った接頭辞のページも、即時削除の対象となります。その場合、削除テンプレートには正しい接頭辞を持つページへのリンクを書いてください。
    • 削除するべきページに{{delete}}(と理由)を書くとそのページはカテゴリ:メンテナンス:削除に入れられ、それをみて管理者は即時削除の最終決定をします。即時削除には投票の必要はなく、管理者の判断によって行われます。もし疑問があった場合、検討している管理者が即時削除の依頼者に質問をします。もしも管理者以外の人が疑問を持った場合、{{delete}}テンプレートの下にコメントを追加することができます。
    • 注意 : 他のページからのリンクがある限り、そのページは即時削除されません。即時削除を依頼する前にそのページへのリンクをすべて修正してください。或いは元のページをリダイレクトとして残しましょう。(注記 : 議論ページや管理用ページからのリンクで、議論が終了している場合にはこのルールの対象外となります)
  • 他の場合は以下で申請してください。


  1. テストウィキ全体の削除を依頼できます。一般的理由は言語委員会がこのプロジェクトの作成を拒否した、或いは接頭辞の言語で書かれていない無意味なコンテンツしかないなどです。
    1. あなたは投票できますが、影響力はほんの少しです。議論はするべきでしょう。
    2. テストウィキをインキュベーター・プラスに移行することも提案できます。
  2. 依頼提出の10日後に管理者がテストウィキの削除を判断します。明らかな削除対象の場合—例えば荒らし・スパム・テスト編集のみの場合はもっと早く削除されることがあります。
  3. 必要に応じてXMLファイルをエクスポートします(必要な意味 : もしもテストウィキが荒らし行為やナンセンスな内容でない場合 - 常識的に考えましょう)
  4. 言語委員会(langcom)の裁定とは直接的な関係を持たないことをお忘れなく。




Wp/odt, Wt/odt and Wp/dum

Believe me, this hurts! I love the older stages of my native language.

But we can't keep them, per language policy, and for the obvious reason that these projects haven't gained momentum. Old Dutch is very scantily transmitted, you'd have to reconstruct just too many words to even write a lemma about medieval things. It also has far fewer proficient readers than Old English. Middle Dutch does have a rich literature in all genres from religion to accountancy, and (in its written form) is much more different from modern Dutch than Middle English is from modern English, but again, a Wikipedia in it would violate policy and would probably never be succesful. And it, too, might attract nonsense edits. Steinbach (talk) 11:12, 15 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Weak keep: On a first glance, the quality looks relatively well, so I wouldn't mind keeping them here. In case, the community decides otherwise, I will gladly export it to Incubator Plus as it would be a shame to see what little is there being deleted. --OWTB (talk) 20:32, 28 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not commenting on their quality (btw wasn't it you who created both of them years ago). I'm just saying: why keep them here if there is absolutely no chance that they will ever be approved? Steinbach (talk) 17:06, 2 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have only created the main pages to accompany any pre-existing subpages. The reason for not deleting them is that, while there is no chance for a subdomain, they are according to our policy valid, as they have an ISO-code. Deleting good contents is always unnecessary. As I'm more or less neutral to keeping them (and Wt/odt?) here, I am always willing to export them to Incubator Plus. --OWTB (talk) 07:59, 3 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wp/tpn and Wp/tpw

Per I:AN#Unable to create a page, both Tupinambá and Old Tupí are extinct languages, so having both test projects violate LPP, there's another living language Nheengatu to which modern Tupi peoples speak and write (see Wp/yrl), so there's nothing beneficial for me to still maintain two extinct coded projects. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 15:02, 28 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Considering that these pages are for the same language, there's any way to move it into Incubator Plus 2.0? There are some indigenous groups attempting to revive Old Tupi, so it might be useful to have something there. Erick Soares3 (talk) 19:00, 26 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sure, if you want to, you may use Special:Export, then use Incubator Plus's Special:Import (ask their administrators if you saw permission errors). Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 11:49, 28 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's always possible. If you want anything exported, give me a sign. --OWTB (talk) 08:20, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Take a note that a request for tpw.wikipedia is now rejected, so personally both projects can go to Incubator Plus now (if contributors are still thinking they are useful). Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 15:24, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Per w:en:Special:Diff/1121838578, it's suspected (at least by @Uanfala) that pages in this test project aren't written in Inku (aka Jakati, which iso639-3:jat points to), probably a linguist in the affected region should join here to discuss whether their suspect is true. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:38, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Example text in Inku language is same as Jatki language. The code Jat was initially fir Jatki languge. In the article of Inku it is clearly written that the language belong to Punjab pronvice of Pakistan.
This wikipedia is written in Jatki language. So, this wikipedia should not be deleted. Otherwise a large no of written material may be destroyed. So it should be continued. Sraiki (talk) 05:24, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
First, there used to be serious confusion about which exact language was denoted by the ISO code "jat". See the commentary in the Glottolog entry [1]. This appears to have largely been resolved now, with both Glottolog and Ethnologue using that code for Inku, the language of a few small itinerant groups of Afghanistan that was probably never written and that may well be extinct by now. The name "Jakati" [sic], surprisingly still visible in the ISO 639-3 code tables [2], is almost certainly erroneous. The similar name "Jatki" appears never to have been used for Inku, but was historically common for a number of related languages of Pakistani Punjab (see en:Jatki language), most notably for what is nowadays known as Saraiki, a language with millions of speakers, a solid written tradition, and a Wikipedia of its own. Now, I don't speak any of those languages, so I can't know for sure. My hunch is that those incubator articles about places in Punjab that appear to use what looks to me like Saraiki orthography, are unlikely to be written in a possibly extinct language of Afghanistan. User:Sraiki, maybe you can help us here: what exact language have you written those articles in? where is it spoken? by how many people? Uanfala (talk) 12:07, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
These articles are written the language, which is known Jatki. It is mainly spoken in Bar region . It is called Jatki in the region. It is spoken by more than 50% population of that region. The population of Jatki is more than 10 M. In all old documents it is Jatki.This language is entirely different from Saraiki and Punjabi. See this for more details, .This language is also called en:Shahpuri dialect and en:Jhangvi dialect. This Jatki was also called en:Lahnda in old litrature whose Iso code is lah. As there is no current ISO code for Jhangvi and Shahpuri, I used Iso code of Jatki, because jat is code for Jatki and Jatki is mainly used for these dialects. See also This book is about Jatki language. Sraiki (talk) 12:25, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Sraiki, Engr.ismailbhutta "I used Iso code of Jatki"? The problem is that iso639-3:jat page says Jakati, not Jatki, I'd say that this is an issue that should be resolved, or else it would be ultra-unfair for Inku/Jakati speakers (if any), as there are two cases the existing Wikipedias were occupied (good to say so?) codes for other unrelated languages (nrmwiki, says Norman Wikipedia but code is for Narom, and Wikipedia 10, which code is for Tama), and at least I really don't want it to be happened 3rd times and more. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:12, 24 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would support the merger of this incubator with existing pnb Wikipedia if possible. The Jatki dialect is widely understood by speakers of other dialects—for example, it is the dialect of Toba Tek Singh District where my family is from. My family are Doabi speakers (an eastern dialect) but many of the words we use overlap with Jatki due to two centuries having passed since my family left eastern Punjab. The Shahmukhi Punjabi Wikipedia already has very few active contributors, and see this energy focused there instead would be most welcome. Any differences that make a given dialect distinctive could also be applied to any other, making it less clear what is left as non-dialectal Punjabi. What is called the “standard” dialect (Majhi) is much more loose of a definition than that of other languages—the language, especially as it is used in Pakistan, has never had a single register which can truly be considered the “main” one due to its lack of official status and use in primarily colloquial contexts. In John Beames's comparative grammar of the northern Indic languages, he reckoned that Punjabi likely has the most dialect variation within the language out of all the major ones for lack of a standard written register. I would say that in line with that, it is perfectly fine for pnb Wikipedia to include articles written in a variety of dialects, and in fact should be expected if the project is meant to represent Punjabi as a whole as it is used in Pakistan. عُثمان (talk) 14:42, 12 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk) Jatki is well known language in Pakistan which is spoken in 11 districts (Jhang, Chiniot, Toba Tek Singh, Sargodha, Khushab, Sahiwal, Pakpattan, Okara, Bahawalnagar, Vehari and Khanewal districts) of bar region of Punjab province over the area of 49,121 km². The population of Jatki language speaking areas is 26,374,221 according to census 2017 which is more than 50% jatki speaking and others are settlers from India on partition and other parts of Pakistan but they are not locals. The main,local and ancient language of bar region is jatki which has very rich literature and culture. My forefathers migrated from bar region to Saraiki region but the term "inko" is new for me and the people of bar region because their language is Jatki. So I endorse the comments of Mr Sraiki and I request to carry on the Wikipedia project for jatki language to save its literature and culture, regards. Ismail Bhutta 14:02, 17 November 2022 (UTC)

OK, I see. So Jatki, the language variety that both Sraiki and Ismail Bhutta refer to above, is one that doesn't have a dedicated ISO code. It is intermediate between pnb ("Western Punjabi" as used by the SIL) and skr (Saraiki). It is one of the many varieties that fall under the scope of the macrolanguage lah (Lahnda), but I don't think the code [lah] can be re-appropriated specifically for this variety. The code [jat] can't be used either, as that presently refers to the Inku language of Afghanistan (there has been confusion around that code before, but never to my knowledge has it been used for a language of Pakistan). The only way forward that I can see is to come up with a new Wikimedia-specific language code and then move the test wikipedia accordingly. I don't know how exactly Incubator works, so someone more knowledgeable could take up this task? Uanfala (talk) 19:45, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In such cases, the new codes should be a part of SIL's code change requests, probably ask @Amire80: on the details? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 05:50, 18 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, I'm asking for help to delete the article because there is already an article with a similar name Badak Jawa (talk) 05:33, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Badak Jawa: For single pages like this, it suffices to add the {{delete}} template to the article (like you have done), you don't need to add them here.
In this specific case, however, it would be better to make this article a redirect to the other article. You can do that by replacing all of the text in Wp/bew/Jakartè with the following:

This project is following in the footsteps of the Ter Saami wp in that it is one word in the language followed by its equivalent in Russian and a pic. This project also has the equivalent in English for some reason. For example, this page on sheep, which also includes the Avar word for the animal. Main page is in Russian, except for the pagename, which is in English. Seems to mainly be the work of a non-native speaker. No request at Meta. Yupik (talk) 19:59, 3 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
