Outlook and next quarter projections
This quarter saw a mixed growth in Telugu Wikipedia. Members celebrating 11 year could be one of the reasons. The benchmark article count of 60,000 articles on Telugu Wikipedia and 10,000 pages on Telugu Wikisource were achieved in previous quarter, and the contentment of achievement could be one of the reasons for lesser activity and less growth when compared to last quarters. 11 years celebrations has shown a greater responsibility and leadership among community members. More emphasis will be made on acting upon the goals and activities that were set during the 11 years celebrations retrospective and future plan brainstorm session.
