I suggest approving the Altay Wikipedia:
The activity is OK, the localization is complete, and I've forwarded an
expert approval to the private list.
Also, happy new year! :)

this is to you as the Board liaison of Langcom about
- I will post the comment there as well.
Northern Luri is basically something similar to the Scots Wikipedia case
It has been ascertained that the content of lrc.wikipedia.org is not
actually written in an understandable form of Northern Luri (lrc). It is
more of an attempt to present a "pure" form of the language without Persian
or Arabic loanwords, which then uses Kurdish loanwords instead and results
in something like a hybrid of (Northern) Luri, Laki
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laki_language>, and Kurdi (written with the
Kurdish alphabet). Since this is a complete invention by User:Mogoeilor
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Mogoeilor> (and maybe some others),
the wiki is incomprehensible to the general public.
This is the result of consultations with linguists and native speakers.
While several times during the discussions about this proposal some
"experts" sent some – sometimes very unprofessional – mails to the Language
Committee, saying that this project was totally legitimate and real, none
of them could be confirmed to be real linguists working on Northern Luri or
to even be real persons.
According to the closing projects policy
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Closing_projects_policy#Decision>, I have
therefore recommended the closure of this wiki, which has received no
objections from other members of the Language Committee.
This means that "The decision will be implemented one week after giving
notice unless members of the Board, which has final authority, wish to take
the matter up."- so therefore, I'm notifying you as Board liaison so that
the Board can exercise its "reserve power", if it wants.
