*Support: I support my own nomination. I would like to assist the translation of MediaWiki messages and with general upkeeping. Also admin on Afrikaans Wikipedia.--Adriaan90 15:32, 14 Eyo Kwindla 2009 (UTC)

  1. Jy is nie 'n Xhosa nie, Adriaan. As written above adminship is for mothertongue speakers with at least 100 edits. And they do not exist. I know what you intend: I have done the same for 4 years or so: Nobody came. Jcwf 12:44, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

This wikipedia is very cool, alone, forgotten, even by the Uglies : a land of Freedom ; it doesn't need any administrator nor nothing else.

I agree Bubelberger. It should be closed, but -alas- there are a few unrealistic people that keep that from happening.

Thanks for your interest in contributing Adriaan. You can still contribute actively to the project, whether or not you are an admin, and I agree that there's not really a need for an admin for the Xhosa Wikipedia right now. I am strongly against closing the project, as that just puts a large barrier to any future contributions. Regarding translating MediaWiki, have you looked at TranslateWiki?

Okay, no problem. How do I propose only local edits to the MediaWiki, because not all System Messages will be used on non-Wikipedia projects? Adriaan 14:25, 1 Eyo Mnga 2009 (UTC)
