Some good news: The Sakha Wiki community keeps being
active. I don't know this language, but i read the mailing list of
that community, which is mostly written in Russian, and often
contribute to it (i also asked to migrate that list to Wikimedia
servers and it will probably happen soon ).
Unlike many other minor-language communities that created a few
articles and stalled, this one is somewhat slowly, but very surely,
going on for years. Their Wikipedia is properly localized and they
recently passed the 7000 article mark. There are many short stubs, but
they are written by people and not just bots, which is quite
To celebrate the 7000th article, HalanTul, one of the prominent
community members, wrote a blog post about it and about the basics of
editing Wikipedia in general. It is in Russian and a little Sakha,
but you may find the illustrations interesting. It shows what to do
with red links (make them blue!), how to use basic markup (bold,
heading) and how to work with links and categories. Note that the
screenshots use the new Vector skin.
HalanTul is also quite active in cultural organizations: He goes to
meetings of organizations that promote regional languages -
governmental and NGO's, Russian and international, including UNESCO
and blogs about it, too.
