Arguments in favour[edit]

Macedonian Wikipedia has over 15 000 articles and I think that now is true time to start Wikispecies in Macedonian language.Buli 22:01, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Support If enough people are willing to contribute I agree this should be done (Red4tribe 04:49, 21 April 2008 (UTC))[reply]

Arguments against[edit]

There are no Wikispecies in any other languages. GerardM 10:38, 16 February 2008 (UTC)[reply]

General discussion[edit]

There are no language subdomains for Wikispecies until now. It is not likely, that it will be started by this request. That would require a more general request. But you can easily add Macedonian content to the international Wikispecies project. --::Slomox:: >< 11:59, 13 February 2008 (UTC)[reply]
