  • The Chinese Wikipedia has reached 200,000 articles. But a Simplified-Traditional Redirect bug has caused some redirect pages that used for redirections between two types of Chinese characters ("Traditional" and "Simplified") were counted as the "real articles". see bugzilla:14553. Also, the Chinese Wikipedia is unblocked in China.
