Creating namespace "Portal" for Balinese Wikipedia
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Hi, I'm requesting the creation of namespace Portal for the Balinese Wikipedia. The Wikipedia has been using the main namespace for portal (see here) so far which is not right.

The local community has been using "Kori" for the translation of "Portal".

Can you please link a community discussion to us, so we can make sure this is what the community desires? Thank you!

Also, we need to know the name of the talk namespace.

@Joseagush: This is unrelated to creating a website.

Here's an ongoing vote on the banwiki. Maybe wait one or two weeks for decision.

Update.

It has been two weeks since I filed this request. There are only two votes in favor of this request from the community, with some notes. I don't know if it is enough to carry on this request.

The notes are taken from comments there that this request may add burden to the community that still consists of only few active editors. They are also in the middle of working on other projects such as Balinese Wikisource and the WikiLontar program, and may not have enough time and energy to take care portals.

As the proposer, and considering the result of the on-wiki vote, I see this as a weak request. I consider to close this request and no further action is needed.
