( Messages and requests: Hello, I am making list of linguistic flags or similar symbols. It is here. For Waray-Waray language I found only flag (or seal) of Samar. However, I want to avoid statist seals, so I found this logo. Is anyone willing to create flag of Waray people or language? It can contain features from seal of Samar or AnWaray logo, but it must differ. The best format would be SVG. I miss flag for Bicolano too. Thank you. sszHosmich (talk) 13:55, 27 Mayo 2013 (UTC) Hi Hosmich, at this time I do not know of any symbol that represents the Waray language. The An Waray logo is actually that of a party-list which represents a sector in the Philippine legislature but I do not know if they really represent the concerns of the Waray language since they do not really represent any geographical area. And the seal of Samar only covers the Province of Samar which is the western third of the island of Samar but does not represent the Provinces of Northern Samar and Eastern Samar which also speak Waray. Also at this time I am unable to create any logo but maybe other members here can help. --Harvzs (talk) 02:00, 28 Mayo 2013 (UTC)Hello. I am from Leyte and a native speaker of Waray. In my opinion, I believe that the best symbol for the language is a thumbnail map of the islands of Leyte, Samar, and Biliran. --Ronsnyderjr 13:57, 26 December 2013 (UTC+8)

Wiki Science Competition

Hi! Wiki Science Competition has started, sitenotices have appeared for sure in Spain, Austria, Russian Federation, USA and Ukraine, and Italy will be join very soon with a massive national campaign. As a member of the academic committee I did my best to reduce the gap between countries both in the composition of the juries and now in the outreach. I did inform many platforms (enwiki, eswiki, frwiki) during the preparation of the event, now I am informing all national institutions, associations and federations of science and technology I can contact, especially those located in countries without national juries (including the Philippines), I am posting notes on LinkedIn groups everyday, and I am contacting national chapters and user groups... and so on. That's why I am here. We prepared banners for many countries but on meta they say it is not wise to use them all, so if you want to use the style
