Here are three more, if they could be added:

Name: Iu Mien
Native name: Iu Mienh
Flag: (yue) same as China
(it's spoken in several countries, but China has the most speakers, so....)
ISO: ium


Name: Ga
Native name: Ga
Flag:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Greater_Accra_Region.gif
ISO: gaa


Name: Mixtec
Native name: Tu'un savi
(there are many varieties of Mixtec and their native names differ, but this is a common one)
Flag: (zap) same as Mexico (this is the same as what was done for Zapotec)
ISO: mix (actually there are about 50 ISO codes, but "mix" is the one for the Mixtepec variety, and will be an easy one to use since it will be the easiest to remember)
This is similar to how Zapotec has been listed here (there are also 50+ varieties of Zapotec), but the difference is that Zapotec has an official macrolanguage code that covers all of them, while for some reason no such macrolanguage ISO code exists for Mixtec.

However, we still have the same problem as before, so the changes I made will only become visible once proycon updates the site manually. I messaged him directly, so hopefully it won't take too long.

Can we please add "Taiwanese Hokkien (Tâi-gí / 台語)" (with a Taiwanese flag, I guess :)

Also, do we get notified when that happens?

You should if you subscribe for notifications from this thread. Otherwise I wouldn't expect it.

I'll see what I can do.

There was a time after the last migration when I stopped being able to update the list (no permissions to deploy the changes)

I don't really see any of these mistakes you point out. Are you talking about the language list or some other part of the site?

Added (although Minan Chinese with a Taiwanese flag already existed as an option, I'm not really sure if there's an actual difference?)

Hi Luís,

Thanks for reacting!

Can we add also "Tâi-gí" in the name as I had written it - since it was written with Latin characters for a long time and there still isn't a standard, so it could nowadays be written both in Latin script or with Hànzì:

"Taiwanese Hokkien (Tâi-gí / 台語)" - it would look best this way - it is clear that we're talking about the language spoken in Taiwan with 20+ million speakers and it doesn't depend on whether it's written with traditional Chinese characters or Latin script, both seem to have been quite common.

We had a [url="https://forum.unilang.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=58617"]long discussion[/url] with Dormouse 559 in the Unilang - Information, Input & Questions forum and we seemed to disagree - but I was saying that it's a language with a very substantial number of speakers in Taiwan and if we wrote Minnan - Traditional, I personally wouldn't have known that we would have been talking about Taiwanese.
