Without Checkuser access I have no way of determining, where the votes
came from. There may have been votes from native speakers in
Transnistria (which would mean that they also reject this wikipedia
edition) or they may have been none, which would indicate that they
are indifferent towards it. Either case would indicate that this Wiki
is not met by any consumer demand.

I do not have a definitive opinion on that matter, and this is really
none of my business. I don't think, generalising on what seems to me a
pretty unique situation makes an awful lot of sense. Here, this issue
is not that there are not enough potential native
contributors/readers. The potential audience exists, but it appears to
/reject/ this wiki decisively. You simply cannot equate that to the
Kanuri, Venda, Inuktitut or Herero Wiki, languages, which have very
small online communities if at all.
