[African Wikimedians] Sudden expansion of Masri Wikipedia

Hi everybody

  I noticed a sudden expansion of arz.wikipedia (Egyptian Arabic

dialect version). Can one of our Arabic speakers help (it would
save time for me as my Arabic is bati’ ktir -too slow)?

  Arz.wiki used to hover under 20,000 articles for years, was at

24,000 until November 2019 and then started adding, reaching
158,107 today 5 March 2020 (adding 10,000 articles in the 5 days
of March!). Looks like some programme doing articles. I wonder: is
there anything readable coming out of it? Is it actually masri or
do they just copy regular existing material from ar.wikipedia?
Appreciate our Arabic speakers’ wisdom! Cheers, Ingo - Kipala

NB: looking at it: they might even work manually, not purely by

And to Ingo’s other questions? What is the language like? Is it actually the Egyptian dialect?


Thanks! It’s clearer now.
