Revo Arka Giri Soekatno has been a member of the Wikipedia community since the end of 2003. He is the first sysop of the Indonesian language Wikipedia and he is also one of the earliest contributors on this Wikipedia edition. Furthermore he set up the Javanese language Wikipedia.

He earned an MA degree in Indonesian language and literature from the University of Leiden in 1999. His MA thesis is about "Malay language letters in Javanese script". Currently he is finishing his PhD thesis on Old Javanese literature at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands.

Abstract
Wikipedia as well as any Wikimedia Foundation project is based on language and not based on country or nation. However there are some existing projects which appear to be based on nations or countries instead of language. In this occasion I would like to highlight the existence of Malaysian and Indonesian language Wikipedia instead of one common Wikipedia project for both communities. While Malaysian Malay and Indonesian Malay are mutually intelligible (see also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malay_language) I deliberately use the term Malaysian instead of Malay as the language used at http://ms.wikipedia.org is actually Malaysian Malay from linguistic point of view.
