Slamet Serayu 07:52, 27 April 2006 (UTC). Candidate for mad.wikipedia.org will be looks like [[[:w:map-bms:Mad.wikipedia.org|| this]]]. Slamet Serayu 03:26, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
    • A mad Wikipedia? - looks like just the right place for me... But honestly, I really believe this could become a sucessful project. However, what I'm slightly worried about is that you already seem to be playing a pivotal role at the new Banyumasan Wikipedia, Slamet Serayu. Running two start-up Wikipedias is veeery much for one editor and the odds are that one of them will eventually lose momentum, which would be kinda sad. I'd be happy if you could find a few committed native speakers and would then wholeheartedly support a Madurese WP, of course. Arbeo 15:34, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
      • Thanks, great Arbeo. I fully understood what you're worried about, just keep my promise and I promise as well to bring a real native speaker for this mad.Wikipedia, I just need another computer set. Meanwhile, map-bms.Wikipedia User are increasing rapidly and many of them are Banyumasan native speaker, of course it will become a great help. Beside me as a sysop, Meursault2004 (I'm sure you know him) is Banyumasan Wikipedia bureaucrat now so it's in the right hand. Ok great Arbeo, I hope it will convincing you.-Slamet Serayu 02:47, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Question & Explanation: A few days ago Mahally Kudsy gave his support (but not log in), why it replaced by Kelmo' did he cancel his support?, who is Kelmo'?. Gustijaya wrote his support from my computer set, can it accepted ? Slamet Serayu 05:46, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
