This language has been verified as eligible. The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.
If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.
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.
"Wikivoyage 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.
Support Although I fear some dispersal between this and other already-weak Arabic wikiprojects, I think it will attract a different people than those who contributes to the other projects, and the Arabic internet users has a very high need of such a travel guide, which have no Arabic alternatives at all, so I support --عباد ديرانية (talk) 10:25, 26 November 2012 (UTC).
Support Wikitravel already has an Arabic version. --Meno25 (talk) 12:36, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
Support It will be very useful for the Arabic reader --Mohamed Ouda (talk) 19:34, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
Support I really like the idea. I believe this kind of projects are really close to Arab youth mainstream and could be something useful one day. I find something like this way more useful than Wikiquotes for instance. --عمرو (talk) 22:17, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
Support I support this project, Arabic Wikipedia is very rapidly growing this would help to have an Arabic Wikivoyage to support it. --Ashashyou (talk) 13:35, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Support I think this project will be active more than other projects (With exception of ArWikipedia) Because a lot of people looking for information about places they want to visit. and there are no special sites for that (only several forums). I expect a success for this project. --Ziad (talk) 20:56, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
Strongly Support I think it will be very useful. --Dr-Taher (talk) 00:00, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Strongly Support we need it --Mr. Ibrahem (talk) 11:51, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Support --زياد0 (talk) 18:56, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Support-- I definitely support this project, Arabic is one of the most major of world languages, it definitely has the potential to flourish into a huge project. Abrahamic Faiths (talk) 15:54, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Support --Khaled (talk) 20:14, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Strongly Support I'm Iranian user of Persian descent and I strongly support Arab Wikipedians to have their own wiki-voyage. I think Arabic is eligible right now. thanks. TheStrayDog (talk) 13:17, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Note: although we still have less than 50 pages on the incubator, there is an Arabic version of Wikitravel with 167 articles. even if repeated topics were excluded, we may still have as many as 180 pages on the beta version --aad_Dira (talk) 03:05, 1 May 2013 (UTC).
Great work , Now we have 255 articles --Mohamed Ouda (talk) 09:06, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Now we have 300 articles --Omda4wady (talk) 08:40, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Please note this is not a vote but a place to discuss about this new language proposal. The amount of people writing "Support" here does not matter in any way. Vogone (talk) 22:25, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
@Vogone: Because some of people doesn't know English there was some local discussions in Arabic and people write support here as result of that local discussions.--Abbas 17:15, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Now we have 460 articles --Omda4wady (talk) 14:09, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
We Ready ... --Florence (talk) 22:46, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg and Meno25: What's missing now to lunch the project? Edits per month? Do we really need that if we are going to use for example Wikidata as a source of information?--Helmoony (talk) 18:34, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
The requirement is that the test-wiki should have at least several active editors over the course of at least several months. That isn't the case here. For example, an 'active' user can be assumed to make at least 10 edits per month; the project only has 10 edits in total so far in this month. This requirement exists because activity in the test-wiki is the best indicator that it will also be an active standalone wiki in the future, which is what we want. If you want to use Wikidata as a source of information, you can already do that now, but as far as I know there is no way to create lots of good travel articles just from Wikidata data in an instant. --MF-W 19:39, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
I want to change the upload settings form -yes- to - no - so that all pictures will be from Commons. We are already facing problems with locally uploaded files in Arabic projects, especially in Wikipedia. It's better to avoid that for Wikivoyage. If there is no opposition, I will make the change in 2 weeks. --Helmoony (talk) 20:57, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
