Article name[edit]

It seems that the most common English name for these islands is "the Cocos Islands"; I'm going to move this article to that name. --(WT-en) Evan 00:12, 17 November 2006 (EST)

Use 24hr time here?[edit]

Since this island is more connected to Indonesia and Malaysia, I'm assuming they'll be using 24 hour time here. The official language here is Malay so I'm also assuming that they use 24 hour time here as well. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 11:11, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

"Malay dialect is similar to English"[edit]

What does that mean? Lots of borrow words, I guess, but still, I'd have to imagine that if you don't speak Malay, you won't be able to follow it. Could we please clarify the point? Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:20, 6 July 2021 (UTC)

One month late, but well, Bahasa Melayu uses latin script, but I'll clarify it. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 09:48, 5 August 2021 (UTC)
