Yes sir.

I touched base on the issue of  Wiki long time ago at Arabeyes
but did not get any interrested people. I would very much take
part in Wiki but I am a strong believer of focus; I would do bad
on both Wiki & Wordlist if I commit to Wiki. I like Wiki because 
sometimes I translate a word in Wordlist and I feel it needs to
be part of an encyclopedia, hence Wiki.

I am not much of a coder but fast in using Kbabel & a dictionary.
I wish for some Arabic speaking members to take up Wiki seriously
since I find what is displayed on the Arabic section of  Wiki rather
disappointing "ماهذا الموقع الفاشل".
