[[User:FrJohn|FrJohn]]== My two cents about inactive language wikis ==
As long as feedback is being sought, here is my thoughts on the matter:Yeah I think it would be a shame to make even the smallest one completely inaccessible, and Idon't know what you had in mind for archiving them, but to break all the current links wouldn't be my choice either. However, could ones that have very few pages or very little activity maybe be "locked down" as inactive until the time that there'm pretty happy about s sufficient interest to maybe unlock it, tooagain. Idon've t know if the user accounts have to be created for each language separately, but if all accounts get created through the English version, I could see how this *could* invite spammers to, say, create an account on the English wiki, and then trash one in another language. Secondly, I guess I would also written suggest that "sufficient interest" to Holy Transfiguration Monastery start/resurrect a language wiki would maybe start with at least 3-5 people, because in Bostonmy two decades on the internet now, but I havenonly know of a couple of websites that are truly comprehensive on their subjects and been consistently maintained and updated through the long haul (10+ years) by one person. (The Charley Project and Cyndi't heard from them yets List are the ones that come to mind. --) [[User:Katjuscha|Katjuscha]] ([[Usertalk:ASDamickKatjuscha|Rdrtalk]]) 03:30, May 13, 2016 (UTC) :Thanks, Katjuscha. I do think there is some degree of responsibility to preserve work done by people in the community. I would not like any good contribution to go to waste. On the other hand, each localization comes with some maintenance overhead, and pruning makes for a better overall user experience. AndrewRight now, I am thinking that at least IT and TL should be archived. Of course, they could be reconstituted if there is sufficient interest. — [[User:FrJohn|<b>FrJohn</b>]]([ talk])
