      Hi! I contacted the person who locked the page and the Meta discussion board to ask if the page should be unlocked and/or if there should be a new venue of discussion.

      See:
      * http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meta:Babel#Hmong_Wikipedia_proposal_page
      * http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:GerardM#Hmong_Wikipedia_proposal

      There are some new posts at the http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikipedia_Hmong page - I am working on getting a solution for new posters interested in the issue

        It is a matter of registering for a new account. Once you get an account, you may begin discussing the idea :)

          Alright, because the consensus is to establish a Wikipedia in White Hmong (MWW)...

          The first articles for the project need to be written at the Wikimedia Incubator - That is located at http://incubator.wikimedia.org

          The Wiki interface translation needs to be done at http://translatewiki.net

          Once the interface is done and once there is a sizable collection of articles, the content will be transferred to http://mww.wikipedia.org

          If you need any help with this, please respond to my message and I will try to get more specific instructions.

          Thank you,
