Name[edit]

I am just curious. Why does this proposal have a different name from the proposal to create Egyptian Arabic Wikipedia although that the two proposals are about the same linguistic entity? --Meno25 18:39, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

  • When I proposed the Masry wikipedia I used the English name Egyptian Arabic so anyone who will read it will know which language I am talking about , Yet most of the Time it was mentioned as Wikipedia Masry and the name Masry became more known in the Meta community ,When I proposed this wiktionary project I put Masry as it is the Native name not the English name , If you notice on Egyptian Arabic wikipedia it is Written Wikipedia Masry, that is why I proposed it in the name that is going to be used not the English name that is not used much on the wikipedia or the wiktionary. Many thanks. Ghaly 20:26, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
