This page is for the announcement of milestones on the Wikimedia projects. If you want to make such an announcement, please post it here and translate it if you can.

Recommended article-count milestones are 100, 500, 1k (1,000), 2k, 5k, then 5k increments to 20k, 10k increments to 100k, 50k increments to 200k, 100k increments to 1M (1,000,000), 500k increments to 2M, 1M increments to 10M. Try mixing things up with other milestones, such as active users or new articles per day.

Wikimedia Forum provides a place for general discussion.

  • The Romanian Wiktionary has reached 10,000 registered users.
  • The German Wikiversity has reached 20,000 learning modules (up almost 15,000 from the count 24 hours ago), apparently the result of the on-wiki stats being recalculated (neither recent edits nor page imports can account for the jump).

December 2014[edit]

  • Wikipedia ends the year with approximately 34,127,197 articles in 287 languages (plus 1 language wiki with 0 articles), which constitutes a 12% increase in articles over the past year.
  • Wiktionary ends the year with approximately 21,922,592 entries in 152 languages (plus 20 language wikis with 0 entries), which constitutes a 19% increase in entries over the past year.
  • Wikiquote ends the year with approximately 176,743 content pages in 89 languages, which constitutes a 7% increase in content pages over the past year.
  • Wikibooks ends the year with approximately 201,779 book modules in 119 languages (plus 3 language wikis with 0 book modules), which constitutes a 6% increase in book modules over the past year.
  • Wikisource ends the year with approximately 4,149,391 text units in 165 languages (comprising 4,128,447 units in 65 individual language wikis and an additional 20,944 units in 105 languages at the Multiligual Wikisource — 5 languages have content in both places), which constitutes a 1% increase in text units over the past year.
  • Wikinews ends the year with approximately 214,355 articles in 33 languages, which constitutes a 4% increase in articles over the past year.
  • Wikiversity ends the year with approximately 69,724 learning modules in 63 languages (comprising 67,049 modules in 15 separate language wikis and an additional 2,675 modules in 63 languages at the Wikiversity Beta — all languages with a dedicated wiki also have some modules at Beta), which constitutes a 9% increase in learning modules over the past year.
  • Wikivoyage ends the year with approximately 76,311 articles in 17 languages, which constitutes a 16% increase in articles over the past year.
  • Wikimedia Commons ends the year with approximately 24,270,999 media files and 117,986 gallery pages, which constitutes a 23% increase in media files and a 4% increase in gallery pages over the past year.
  • Wikispecies ends the year with approximately 412,990 content pages, which constitutes a 7% increase in content pages over the past year.
  • Wikidata ends the year with approximately 12,957,136 items, which constitutes a 7% decrease in items over the past year (possibly partially due to a faulty item count last year).
  • Wikimedia Incubator ends the year with approximately 77,902 content pages across 600 test wikis in 494 different languages (including any test wikis that have been opened but are currently empty), which constitutes a 35% increase in content pages over the past year (along with 20 more test wikis and 9 more languages).
  • There were a total of 4 new main content wikis created in 2014 (Maithili Wikipedia, Oriya Wikisource, Persian Wikivoyage, and Chinese Wikivoyage), far fewer than the 14 created in 2013 (8 of which were Wikivoyages).
Note: The page counts listed above are based on stats collected between 00:09:52 and 00:14:22 UTC on 2015-01-01 (Multilingual Wikisource, Wikiversity Beta, and Incubator language counts were collected about an hour later). Language counts include closed wikis and count "Simple English" as a separate language when such a wiki exists within a project.

Projects by number of content pages[edit]

The tables below are arranged chronologically by original launch date within two main groups: "interlingual" projects (different wiki for each language) followed by "multilingual" projects (all languages on the same wiki). The older Wikimedia projects (such as Wikipedia) tend to be larger than the newer ones, but note that these tables are not arranged by number of sub-wikis nor by total article count.

Note: You can go directly to the table for Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, Wikiquotes, Wikibooks, Wikisources, Wikinews, Wikiversities, Wikivoyages, Wikimedia Commons, Wikispecies, or Wikidata.
