The problem with this template (similar to that with the French template) is that the image used in this template is the flag of the Republic of Macedonia, not the Macedonian language. This flag is not a symbol of the minorities who use Macedonian as their first language (such as those in Albania). I would accept the "old flag" as it is universally accepted nation symbol of the Macedonian people, but most Greek editors would probably object to this. So for now I'm going to redesign the template without a flag. --Hegumen (talk) 08:49, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Something like the Spanish template would be nice. --Hegumen (talk) 09:07, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
What image could we possibly have though? BalkanFever 09:15, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
The cover of a well known novel, an image with stylized Cyrillic characters or even just an image of a writer? Something practical that also looks good. --Hegumen (talk) 09:30, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

would it be appropriate for the Slavic dialects of Greece page to be somewhere in the template? It is the macedonian language after all P m kocovski (talk) 13:12, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
Possibly, though there's already a link to the page on distribution. — Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 19:16, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
