Is this a request to close the wiki?

Though, I find it slightly amusing "community consensus" for closing trwikinews has been done on trwiki...

The most active community among Turkish speakers is on Wikipedia.

To answer the other question, we would like to keep the "history" (news content) for archiving purposes, but the wiki should be read-only.

Well, deleted would mean it wasn't accessible at all. closed is basically readonly...

I’ve sent a message to the sitereq-l list but doesn’t this need to follow https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Closing_projects_policy which it seems to have not.

We’ve had a message saying it’s okay from LangCom. Any other thoughts?

Yes. It isn't the Wikinews community, but the Wikipedia community consensus. As such, the argument on a distinction between voluntary and involuntary closure falls, and discussion on closing tr.wikinews should be on meta with proper notification to trwikinews, which seems to have not been done.

I'm not a member of LangCom.
