I put Project logo SVG Image 135x155 for this time. Let me asking Ezagren to put 135x135 PNG image next time. And I think some questionare may incorrectly reply by me, please advice me if any. Thanks--J Subhi pamandiran 12:55, 21 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I am not able to make the Wikipedia logo, I created a logo and upload in Commons is mostly for the help my friend. Ezagren 14:42, 22 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Are you sure that you want "Wikipidia" in the Latin script? Also, "Project talk namespace" is usually something like "Wikipedia talk". Are you sure that "Pamandiran" is good enough translation? --Millosh 09:19, 23 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, I'm sure want "Wikipidia" in the Latin script. But, if logo, take Jawi script. I'm also sure that "Pamandiran" is good enough translation (Pamandiran, Pandir (Banjar)=Talk; Pembicaraan, Bicara (Indonesia)=Talk). Ezagren 11:50, 23 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Eza, you are right talk is pamandiran in Banjar, but for project talk namespace, I agree with Milosh to be Wikipidia pamandiran. Thanks.--J Subhi pamandiran 12:49, 23 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

The project has been approved by the Board and bug is filled --Millosh 16:00, 25 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]
