Wikipedia has many projects under several languages. These languages are linked to ISO-codes (International Organisation for Standardization). "Our" wikipedia works under the name of Aramaic, and the ISO code of arc. According to ISO, this arc is the official Aramaic from 700 till 300 BC. Since we all contribute in one specific Aramaic dialect thats suits both Western and Eastern Syriac speakers, that is Classical Syriac, the name of the Aramaic Wikipedia must be changed to the more proper name the Syriac Wikipedia. By also changing the name and code (from arc to syc), we will match the ISO code that is given to this specific Aramaic dialect (syc stands for Classical Syriac).
Here is the link where the community gave its approval for renaming the wiki: http://arc.wikipedia.org/wiki/%DC%A1%DC%A1%DC%A0%DC%A0%DC%90:%DC%A6%DC%90%DC%AC%DC%90_%DC%AA%DC%9D%DC%AB%DC%9D%DC%AC%DC%90#Renaming_the_Aramaic_.28arc.29_Wikipedia_to_the_Syriac_.28syc.29_Wikipedia
I've also contacted GerardM of the WMF about this matter. I quote GerardM: "My impression of all this is that it is best to rename the Aramaic Wikipedia and call it the Syriac Wikipedia and syc.wikipedia.org. The language policy of the WMF allows in my opinion for such exceptions."
Thank you in advance.
