(Lexical clarification: when Thawcho writes he has read some "Wikipedia values", he means "Wikipedia articles". The two phrases are homonymous in Hebrew.)

I suggest to approve the Adyghe (Circassian) Wikipedia.

The code is ady. It is the language of the Republic of Adygea in Russia, also spoken by communities of Adyghe (or Circassian) people in other countries, including Turkey, Israel and others. It is closely related to, but distinct from Kabardian (kbd), in which there already is a Wikipedia.

It started in Incubator and translatewiki years ago, but there was very little activity. In the last few months several users started making a lot of edits in both Incubator and translatewiki. The most used message in translatewiki are complete [1]. There is activity in the Incubator [2].

See below for a forwarded email from Zoher Thawcho of the Circassian Cultural Centre in Kfar-Kama (Israel), in which he approves that the articles in ady.wikipedia are written in the correct language.

Let's approve it.

Hi Amir,
I hereby confirm that I have read a few paragraphs about the Circassians Wikipedia values​​, and acknowledge that the language they are written in standard Circassian.
all the best,
