[@Anna Elsa J.] The poem by Mastrangelo Maestrano is already present here turned into a song: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/kiara-italy-èla-èlamu-kondà-lyrics.html. The language already has a category. I will correct the
language category.

Do you know Kashubian and Rusin variantes?

Ah, I'm sorry, I didn't notice it... Okay, so, does it need to be deleted?

Well, Kashubian is devided either into 3 main dialects (Northers, Middle and Southern, each divided into many smaller dialects) or 5 (Bylacki; Słowinski [extinct]; Kabatków [extinct]; Zaborski; Tucholski and Krajniacki considered as one "category" and being a mix between Kashubian and Greater Polish so they're hard to classify if they're dialcts of Kashubian or Polish). I honestly don't know which division system is better.
For Rusyn I know there's Pannonian Rusyn from Vojvodina, Serbia and Croatia and Carpathian Rusyn, spoken in Ukraine, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Romania. I know there are 3 ways of writing in it Cyrillic - Lemko, Slovak and the one of Vojvodina.

I don't think so. The rules state identical entries can stay if there's a visual support that shows that they've been modified in some way. One is a poem, the other is a song based on the poem, I guess the difference is enough to justify the presence of both.

Can you add more songs in these languages?

You mean Kashubian and Rusyn, right? Sure, go ahead, if the language isn't on the LT language list just mark it as "other" and link it here with the information what language is it in.

Thanks!

Those German ones all fit into existing categories (the Frankish ones into Old High German, Palatinate German is a form of Central German, we have a category for Low German (which would likely even include Gronings Dutch, even though that seems to be an old creole of Low German and Frisian), and West Frisian is normally just called Frisian, which has a category.
So I've put those into the existing categories.
I'm surprised we don't have a category for Pennsylvania Dutch yet - it goes back to Central German, but I would have guessed it would get its own category.
Well, we now have 2 texts in it, both in the Central German category, but I'll list them here nevertheless.

As DarkJoshua pointed out, we already have a category for Griko, of which Calabrian Greek is a subdialect.

Burgenland Croatian is a form of Chakavian, which has a category.
Cieszyn Silesian is a form of Silesian, which has a category.
Kajkavian has a category.

Drawänopolabian and Eastern Polabian are both forms of Polabian. Added them as that to the list.

I added the other ones to the list.
We could probably just make categories "Croatian dialects", "Macedonian dialects" etc, but since I don't speak those languages I can't tell.

No, the current rule is that they must have different main artists, which is the case, so both can stay.

Requested a category for Masurian Polish, Nganasan, and Evenki, and added some more to the list.

The rule about duplicates has changed so many times that I'll never be able to catch up. Thank you anyway for your correction.
