I'm not sure if we should bother creating separate variants of Wakhi, but at the least, we could probably create a lang code for Wakhi and use the Pakistani flag because that's the song we have. If, in the future, someone nominates a song that's specifically in another variant of Wakhi, then we can figure out what to do.
There isn't any dialect variation within Wakhi that I'm aware of; it's just spoken in the Wakhan, which happens to be a border region. It's very cold, very mountainous, very isolated (IIRC there are literally no roads in the Wakhan), and sparsely populated, which might help explain why it doesn't have a flag or anything like that.
I wasn't sure if the UL database pulls the country flag when the 2 digit country code is appended as part of the complex code
Yes, it does (or at least the country flag shows up). That's why I personally don't bother asking for these things.
Would it matter that much if we're using only Kosovo's flag while a song in Gheg could potentially be from Northern Albanian or Macedonia or Montenegro?
I don't think so, since we can always use the two-digit code anyway.
Also, if we are going to split up Albanian into dialects, should we add one for Arbëreshë?
I have nothing against that.
English name: Arbëresh
Native name: Arbërisht
ISO code: aae
Flag: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arb%C3%AB ... beresh.svg
Do you have any suggestions on what to do though for Levantine Arabic? Maybe we could split all 4 up into their respective variants, complete with correct country flags?
I have nothing against this, either. I guess Syrian Arabic (and more specifically Damascene) is the variety with the highest number of speakers and second-language learners? So maybe that's why the Syrian flag has been used.
