(update: Yaroslav is helping to restore the pages
now! Yay :) But help
with creating proper articles is very much appreciated)

Thanks for the thoughts, Nicolas.
Right now, some help to get these pages restored and then helping to
edit (add reference and introduction) & move them would be great. Not sure
if that needs admins.
To answer your questions:
* I'm actually not sure if there's another list in Nepali. But those
lists are language sensitive, so having an English list on newiki wouldn't
make a lot of sense. I guess you also wouldn't appreciate those on frwiki?
;) That being said, there are some 123 languages
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_of_Nepal> being spoken in
* The lists for Kosi have been restored before the admin realized it
was 200+ pages, and decided it needed more discussion. But the good part is
that you can now see what all the other lists look like. It is also an
opportunity to show what they can become. An example would be the Indian
list I linked, I think. But it needs some creativity.
* There is a source, in Nepali :) It is linked in the list of lists
