> Hello!
> I have started a proposal for a new wiki project: WikiLang (meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiLang). It is about endangered languages and language documentation/decipherment. It is a very important step in order to save our linguistic diversity which is ongoing faster than the extinction of animals. Most of our languages are highly endangered and there are pessimistic estimations that by 2100 90% of them will be extinct. So, please support the project and vote for it and/or give your feedback! (I for myself belong to a language minority and I can tell how important this is.) Thanks a lot!

For months I failed to see the rationale of the proposal, now I think I 
got it. 
It's about an unstructured collection of content and discussions, so 
instead of spending time requesting a Wikimedia project I personally 
suggest you to create a Wikia wiki and/or to ask 
http://www.endangeredlanguages.com/ a wiki under their domain, 
integrated with their forums or whatever they use.
