    Incubator Plus Policy[edit]

    What Incubator Plus hosts[edit]

    Starting a new test language[edit]

    • You can start a test language of the projects mentioned above, at any time for any reason. It is not required to have a proposal at Meta, but it is more useful.
    • You have to do following:
      • Create a main page, with an article name consisting of just the prefix: Project/code.
      • List the test on Template:Tests.

    Closure or deletion[edit]

    • Tests on the Wikimedia Incubator that are inactive for over a year will be deleted or placed to here. A test here cannot be deleted.
    • If a project is given final approval by the language subcommittee, the test's pages will be imported to the new subdomain wiki. All pages will be deleted, except the main page, and a notice will be added.
    • If it is rejected, the test will be kept for future proposals when the requirements are fulfilled.

    Whilst on Incubator[edit]

    Nomenclature[edit]

    • All pages in a test have a prefix of the form "project/langcode/", for example "wp/en/" for English Wikipedia.
    • Images need to be uploaded directly to the Incubator Plus; we do not have access to the Wikimedia Commons.
    • Templates and categories must be prefixed just like articles must.

    Test Admins[edit]

    • Whilst on Incubator Plus, you may apply for test adminship. This gives you admin rights (to delete and protect pages, and to block users) on your test only.
    • This requires that:
      • the user is a good contributor to the test language.
      • the test language must have more than 25 pages of content.
      • the test language must be active for at least the last week.
    • If the language is approved fully, the test admins will become admins on the new wiki, and lose their status here (they can reapply it at the normal way).
    • If the test is inactive for more than 4 months you will lose your status at the Incubator Plus.

    Wikia Policy[edit]

    There are very few policies which apply across all Wikia. These can be found on the Central Wikia at Wikia:Category:Policy.

    Other policies for this Wikia will be decided by the wiki community. It's generally best to keep policies as simple as possible, and not to introduce too many rules. A growing wiki can usually do well with a few simple policies and a lot of good will and cooperation.

    Adding [[Category:Policy]] to any policy pages will add them to the policy category. This is found here.
