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.
