At the time when the Egyptian Arabic Wikipedia was created, there was a lot of blowback because "there is only one Arabic". There is not, it is why these are considered languages by linguists and not dialects.

In my personal opinion, all the Arabic languages may have their Wikipedia, they may certainly have recognition in Wikidata.

Dear Mr.,
I thank you for your answer. All the Arabic dialects are not supported by MediaWiki but Egyptian Arabic (arz), Tunisian Arabic (aeb-arab), Algerian Arabic (arq), and Moroccan Arabic (ary).
Yours Sincerely,
Houcemeddine Turki

How many of those are supported by MediaWiki? Can you help find
translators for the missing ones?
