Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.

Description Johannes Rohr 2007-05-29 12:42:52 UTC
The proposal to close the Old English Wikisource, discussed since 6 December 2006 has been broadly supported by the community. 

Reasons:

- Duplication of existing project, since English wikisource accepts Old English texts,
- no content except for a few pages, which were copied and pasted from English Wikisource
- no community
- no activity (except for spam and vandalism)

Before locking the database, please do a full spam cleanup (see http://ang.wikisource.org/wiki/Category:Requests_for_deletion as well as
http://ang.wikisource.org/wiki/Special:Allpages

Furthermore http://ang.wikisource.org/wiki/Cn%C4%93orisb%C5%8Dc is an alleged copyvio (see talk page) and thus should also be deleted. 

Thanks
