- -1: It's not a language, it's a dialect
- Only an unsigned opinion; ISO code tells a different truth. --Massimo Finizio 09:07, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
- There is always somebody who believes to know better, as usual, and with no signature moreover...--Carmine Colacino 11:54, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
- So many contributors at this moment already... I daresay, create a test wiki now! Or, if just a few others join in, let a developer create the new Wikipedia soon! I think it is safe to say it will be successful. Caesarion Velim, non opto 12:38, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

- Support. The Neapolitan language is one of the most richest and expressive Romance tongues. In fact, some of the world's most recognizeable songs are of Neapolitan origin. Now it is time to showcase Neapolitan to the world on a whole new level. Not only will this project be important for the promotion and normalisation of the Neapolitan language, but it will hopefully reinforce the idea that the language is an integral part of Neapolitan history, culture, and identity.

- Support CRYptex 10:12, 2 September 2005 (UTC) I live in Naples and I love both my city and its history; I would be really happy if this project was created.

- We are starting with the UI translation (not sure if I will use OmegaT or the language tool from SUN - I'll see which one works better for us) - this will be done with the help of the "napulitano" mailing list - so I would kindly ask to who is interested in helping us to subscribe with an empty message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! --Sabine 09:34, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
