user 1: wow, it's great! who has done it
user 2: wikimedia programmers
user 1; super! real heroes!
user 3: thank you, thank you, thank you!
user 4: so now we're waiting for google to index uzwiki
user 2: it's awesome, i cannot even express how awesome it is
user 2: Thank you guys for helping us. And special thanks to Tim Starling.
user 2: We're going to introduce Tim Starling day in Uzbek Wikipedia as well

Rahmat va salomlar!
