Outline

Please change the text on the main page of http://uk.wikimedia.org

Instead of:

For the Ukranian language Wikipedia please visit http://uk.wikipedia.org; for Wikimedia Ukraine please visit http://wikimedia.org.ua

Please write

For the Ukranian language Wikipedia please visit http://uk.wikipedia.org; for Wikimedia Ukraine please visit http://ua.wikimedia.org

I do not think you like abovementioned text on the top of the main page. So I would suggest to change the name of Wikimedia UK site to http://gb.wikimedia.org in accordance with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1

Then on the page http://uk.wikimedia.org/ the disambig text could be created with references to:

Hi Perohanych. I've updated the disambig line at the top of the main page. We've opened a bug request here to see if we can move this site to wikimedia.org.uk, which we're waiting for the WMF to get around to. I really don't think it's appropriate to have the Wikimedia UK webpage at gb.wikimedia.org, as "Great Britain" excludes Northern Ireland. Thanks. Mike Peel 16:28, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
