hym || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Add_support_for_Western_Armenian_(hym)

* http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=hym
pjt || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/New_translation_for_pjt
* Rejected. There are no prospect translators.
* http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=pjt
ovd || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Request_for_new_language:_Elfdalian_(ovd)
* Added: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/354672/
syl || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/_iso_639-3_iso_639-3_%E2%80%93_iso_639-3_request_for_Sylheti_language_%26_keyboard_on_translatewiki_(2)
* Not yet added. Not enough information. More information added now.
* http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=syl
skr || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Enable_saraiki_language
* Added: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/354675/
brx || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/I_want_to_enable_Bodo_language_on_translatewiki.net_by_the_help_of_support_page.
* https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/354676/
* Already in ULS.
kln || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Kindly_enable_Kalenjin_-_kln
* Rejected. This is classified as a macro language. It includes Keiyo [eyo], Kipsigis [sgc], Markweeta [enb], Nandi [niq], Okiek [oki], Pökoot [pko], Sabaot [spy], Terik [tec], Tugen [tuy]. Which language are we talking about?
tun || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Please_enable_Tunica_for_translation
* Rejected. Heritage language of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Marksville, Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana.
kjv || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Request_for_a_new_language:_Kaikavian_literary_language
* Rejected. We are not adding UI localisation support for historic languages.
hoc || [https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Request_to_start_a_new_language. (dot needed)
* Probably needs both Deva and Wara script, defaulting to Wara for now (but may become Deva later if Ethnologue is right that Wara is no longer in use).
* Requested clarification, will not add support for localising in script that is no longer in use, because it doesn't make sense to have people try and use that.
crj || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Add_Cree_languages
* This request is rejected until there are proficient writers to actually contribute to the localisation of a language code. 
jv-java || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Please_support_%22jv-java%22
* We don't add support for localisation in scripts that are no longer in use. The code is available in ULS, because for example Wikidata entries can be made in jv-java. 
nod || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/New_localization_project_for_nod
* Thai script seems fine, judging also from Ethnologue.
* https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/354681/
bn-in || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Please_allow_Bengali-India_(bn-in)_translations_to_be_contributed_for_the_projects_on_translatewiki.net
* Rejected per reasons given by translator in thread.
hak-hant, hak-hans || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Request_for_enabling_new_variants_for_Hakka_language_(2)
* The Wikipedia subdomain seems to have a rather constant albeit low activity. https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesWikipediaHAK.htm
* https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/354691/
es-ni || https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/espa%C3%B1ol_nicarag%C3%BCense
