There is now a vote that will decide if Zawthet will be the first Myanmar bureaucrat. It is quite important for a community to be able to organise itself. This will strengthen its community.

The notion of barnstars was discussed as well and, it was decided that it would be good to give a lotus in stead for those who deserve praise. Localising a great practice makes sense because it has to feel good for the local community.
As barnstars are awarded by a person, I would like to award a lotus to the people who came to the Bangkok unconference, to the people who make up what is now called the "Myanmar Wikipedia Working Group" for their wish to make their project do well and for the many great ideas that are surely going to make a difference.
