Description Meno25 2007-05-19 12:59:38 UTC
Please, change the number system in the Arabic Wikinews. The current system used is the Hindu numerals instead of the correct Arabic numerals. The following image shows the difference between the two systems. 
(The first row is Arabic numerals while the second row is the Hindu numerals.) and the Wikipedia article

Note: All Arabic wikis (arwiki, arwikisource, etc) are currently using the correct Arabic numerals system. MediaWiki version when reporting this: 1.11alpha (r22232)

Works for me.
Timestamps are printed correctly using arabic digits. 

=> Closed.
Comment 2 Meno25 2007-10-17 15:01:24 UTC
No, sir. I am sorry if I didn't format my request correctly. Please check the following:

Current numeral system: ۰ ۱ ۲ ۳ ٤ ٥ ٦ ٧ ۸ ۹
Requested numeral system: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Reason: There was an old discussion in the Arabic Wikipedia that its result was to use the digits 1, 2, 3, etc in all Arabic Wikimedia wikis

This is why the other Arabic wikis use the numbers 1, 2, 3, ... See Arabic Wikipedia

Arabic Wiktionary

Arabic Wikibooks

=> Reopen bug (if you don't mind)

OK, I'm sorry for my mistake, I didn't recognize these digits as Hindu and took them for Arabic (well knowing that the "western world" calls their digits Arabic and... Oh well. My mistake.) I'll investigate this tonight.

I fixed this a while ago and forgot to close the bug. I think it's finally fixed.
