We as indigenous people of Sabah will need a free channel to document our language. Kami sebagai orang asli Sabah perlukan satu saluran bebas untuk mendokumentasikan bahasa kami.FRANCIS5091 02:06, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Support Support Living language. It has been spoke in Sabah state.Francis Labi 14:41, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Support : Native speakers of Dusun have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Dusun language deserves to be given the opportunity and privilege to have its own language edition of Wikipedia. --Jose77 21:10, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Support : Yoho nga sumukung nogi diti purujik. Agree with Jose77. --Franelya Lizendra 22:00, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Support : This language is still used in Sabah and I think there's a newspaper in this language. --Kurniasan 10:41, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Support Used of most people in Sabah, Malaysia.--Aplikasi 10:44, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Support It seems that the Dusun language has enough people willing to work on it, so I support them! Capsot 08:01, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Support : I believe that the creation of Wikipedia Dusun would do wonders to preserve and bring development to the language itself. Being a minority language, Dusun is deprived of a free medium in which its speakers can express their thoughts, philosophy and culture through their own mother tongue freely. By having a Wikipedia Dusun, this would help the Dusun people, especially the younger generations to realize that their own language is a unique language and that it has the potential to flourish into a more literary language just like any other great lingua franca the world has seen. With the right exposure and publicity, I'm sure that a Wikipedia Dusun will attract many contributors eager to help and support this project.--Scriptor 19:57, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Extremely Supporting Yes. YES! --SyahirSQRT2 (talk) 12:10, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Support Support : Sokong. Dituturkan di Sabah, Malaysia Datu Talk 16:02, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Support I myself am a Dusun native. Sadly, I can only do basic conversations and commands as I was raised with English as my L1. Seeing each Dusun word replaced by a Malay word day by day makes me sad. In order to protect our culture, we should take steps in preserving it and a Wikipodia Dusun would help in making one of the giant leaps in Boros Dusun history.

  • Change words 'Dusun Bundu-Liwan' with 'Central Dusun, Dusun) [1] --Franelya Lizendra 22:18, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Agree. 'Dusun Bundu-Liwan' is Dusun + Bahasa Melayu. Please use the terms 'Dusun' to distinguish between 'Malay Dusun' and 'Pure Dusun'. FRANCIS5091 02:06, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
