Greetings, Cas! Have you created a Wikipedia account yet? It's worth doing
as a place to save your Wikimedia-related correspondence, also on a global
basis across projects.
I see from the meta List of Wikipedia that the Nedersaksisch
<https://nds-nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nederlaands_Leegsaksisch> WP project
has six users designated as Administrators. Four of them have been active
in 2018, three of them recently (per the dates that appear for each in
"bydragen"). I suggest you contact them on their User pages and paste the
content you sent to the List. Good luck!

I am completely new to this whole Wikimedia by the way but I think that
you are the right person to send this email to.
I am a great fan of the whole Wikipedia project and this afternoon I
noticed that besides Dutch, my native language, there were also pages
written in "Nedersaksisch." This is not really a language at all but rather
a combination of many Low Saxon dialects which creates really weird texts
with some parts in eg Gronings (a northern dialect) and some parts in
Achterhoeks (an eastern dialect). Sometimes the dialect literally changes
after each sentence. The use of "Nedersaksisch" as a language for all
northern/eastern Dutch dialects is thus highly cunfusing and pretty
difficult to read.
Therefore I personally think that it would be so much better if this
"language" will be discarded from Wikipedia and that each dialect will be
treated as a seperate language because the differences between them are
legitimately really large. These dialects should be: Grönnegs, Drèents,
Sallaans, Tweants and Achterhooks. Possibly some small dialects like
Stellignwarfs, Urkers, Oost-Veluws and West-Veluws can be added in the
future as well, though not many people speak it anymore.
Anyway, if there is any information that could be relevent to me or some
future developments, please write me a pm back. And is this actually the
correct place to write this?
