The setting of the arz.wikipedia should be using Arabic writing , i.e. from right to left to avoid problems with writing.

Writing using Latin alphabet should be allowe as well as an option for writing names in original language. ~~~~

I think that should include all requested issues for this bug. If this is incorrect, please do feel free to reopen it.
