A Progress Report on the Different Filipino Wikipedia

From my blog, http://salitablog.blogspot.com, here are the latest updates:

Mga Kahimanwa kong Bikolano: The Bikol Wikipedia is now finally open. The URL is http://bcl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangenot_na_Pahina

 

This is for, more or less, the Naga-Legazpi Standard variety (aka Northern Bikol or  Bikol Central). A proposal has been submitted to start a Rinconada Bikol  Wikipedia, but it looks like a long shot for now. The Rinconada incubator is at http://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/bto

(http://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/bto.)

There are now Wikipedias in EIGHT different Philippine languages. In addition to Bikol, they are:

 

Cebuano_ http://ceb.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unang_Panid

 
Ilokano_ http://ilo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umuna_a_Panid

 

Kapampangan_ http://pam.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pun_Bulung

 

Pangasinan_ http://pag.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arapan_ya_Bolong

 

Tagalog_ http://tl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unang_Pahina

 
Waray-Waray_ http://war.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syahan_nga_Pakli, and

 
Zamboangueño_ http://cbk-zam.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Primero_Pagina (Chavacano).

I'm quite surprised that the Hiligaynon_

and the Kinaray-a_
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikipedia_Kinaray-a_2

 
Wikipedias are still on the back burner. They are "conditionally approved" -- meaning, there are some criteria that still need to be met.

Anyway, spread the word.

Quote of the Day

"My mom said she learned how to swim. Someone took her out in the lake and threw her off the boat. That's how she learned how to swim. I said, 'Mom, they weren't trying to teach you how to swim.'"--Paula Poundstone
