  • I am happy to see friends organizing a program for Wikipedia10. I hope it will be a landmark in the history of Nepali Wikipedia Movement. As the day fell in quite difficult time for me. But I am trying to attend it. --गणेश पौडेल 11:22, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Hi Iam prabha from Nepal Really appriciated with the 10 anniversary celebration of WIKIPEDIA but I am new about it Intrested to know more about it. please realese more about on my email:pravanpathotmail.com - thanks Prabha
  • Hi I am Suman. I congratulate Wikipedia.org on 10th year celebrations. It has been a phenomenal for people like us to find a almost all of the answers and facts, with just a click. With slow increase in internet usages day by day, more and more of Nepalese netizens are becoming familiar about the usefulness of wikipedia, but I am pretty sure that the number is much more lesser. Despite the huge wealth of informations and facts in Wikipedia, many Nepalese users are not able to use it. Its nice to find a team celebrating WIKIPEDIA's 10th anniversary celebration. On this very occasion, I wish and request the WIKIPEDIA to do something so that more and more Nepalese users and especially students take benefit of WIKIPEDIA.
