This proposal has been rejected. While this request has technically been rejected, in reality this is a request that has been sitting open or on hold for a long time with little evidence of a community coming together to build a project. If a community comes together in the future and makes a new request, LangCom would consider that new request without prejudice.
A committee member provided the following comment:
Only two pages were ever created, so closing as stale. Content will remain at Incubator. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 16:01, 11 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]
The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
"Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin"). Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
Just fyi: "Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them." It's on top of the page. You could have read it, and taken note of it. Steinbach (formerly Caesarion) 13:49, 22 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Neutral. Mesopotamian Arabic is one of the main languages spoken in Iraq, and it is also spoken in other countries. I don't argue against the creation of this WP, nevertheless I decided not to support it since there are only 2 pages until now and no activity since 2016 (as mentioned above).--FirePolyglot (talk) 15:40, 14 March 2019 (UTC)FirePolyglot[reply]
Oppose As long as there is an Arabic encyclopedia, there is no benefit from this project. --عبد الله (talk) 06:23, 7 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose-- All Arab countries speak Arabic and understand it why you wants to differentiates between the Arab peoples.--Bander7799 (talk) 09:01, 7 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose All speakers of Mesopotamian understand and speak Arabic as an official language. So I'm definitely against these projects.--Faisal talk 15:51, 7 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose No need to create too many Arabic dialects wikis, their users can and should contribute to ar:. --22.214.171.124 09:07, 24 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Such arguments could be made against any new Wikis, since all modern languages without Wikipedias sit in the territory of a larger more dominant language.--Prosfilaes (talk) 17:26, 24 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
