Error in the table[edit]

There's an error at line 213 of the table (Doteli Wikipedia) where the native name and the English name of the language are inverted, which fucks up the links, but I don't know how to fix it. Basemetal (talk) 15:04, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Fixed. --Emaus (talk) 01:51, 10 February 2018 (UTC)


What's happening with Cebuano, it has over 5 million articles! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 22:59, 16 November 2017‎

This is not a problem. The majority of the articles in the Cebuano Wikipedia have been created by a bot called Lsjbot. The English Wikipedia has an article about this bot: Lsjbot.

Klingon Wikia[edit]

The Klingon Wikia link is broken, here is a working link.'a' --Sabelöga (talk) 22:43, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Kabiye Wikipedia[edit]

For Kabiye (kbp), the "Language" and "Language (local)" designations are the wrong way round on this list. The name of the language in English is 'Kabiye'. The name of the language in Kabiye is 'Kabɩyɛ'. Please can this be changed? Gnangbade (talk) 08:55, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Fixed. --Emaus (talk) 01:50, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Updates for 14 January 2018?[edit]

Why are there no updates for 00:00 & 12:00 14 January 2018 (UTC)? Is it out of order?--Kowlooner (talk) 12:50, 14 January 2018 (UTC)


? Total what? Bits/bytes/characters/words/edits? Apparently not articles, since there is a separate, smaller column for this category. I would correct this, but I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT SHOULD BE. 06:55, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Under the section "Notes" you will find the definition of "Total". -- Tegel (Talk) 07:14, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

New column "Views"[edit]

Hello, everyone!

I have an idea to add a column with site views to the table. Here you can find it's first draft: List of Wikipedias/Table v2.

Please comment this. In case of approval here, I'm going to start an RFC with some additional options of the table modification. --Emaus (talk) 01:43, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

What's the point of simple English wikipedia?[edit]

I get the gist of it, but it seems practically the same as the actual English. Not that "simple". Alex of Canada (talk) 00:48, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Look at several of the other longer, better quality articles there. You'd be surprised as to how simple the page is in comparison to its counterpart. Unfortunately, we don't have too many active editors over there to keep all pages simple. hiàn 04:04, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
This is not the place to discuss the use of any particular Wikipedias. Or Wikipedia in general, for that matter. Steinbach (formerly Caesarion) 12:12, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
I will edit on it, then. Alex of Canada (talk) 00:01, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Uppercase missing at[edit]

In the language list at nearly all languages but the Armenian in the 100.000+ section are given with uppercase first letter. Armenian is mentioned as հայերեն, rather than Հայերեն: How can this be fixed ? Darwwin (talk) 10:26, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

I'll put in a phabricator on that. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:45, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
phabricator:T193060. I suspect they'll handle this pretty promptly. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:52, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
@Darwwin: Phabricator reports that the correction will be deployed on Monday, 7 May. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:01, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
thanks! Darwwin (talk) 10:17, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
@Darwwin: Have a look now ... StevenJ81 (talk) 15:03, 8 May 2018 (UTC)
@StevenJ81:, perfect! thanks for very quick processing!

Un MAmaguebo trafficante[edit] 16:01, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

I have no idea what you want to have done here. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:53, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Albanian Wiki[edit]

It seems to have disappeared from the main list. I had to pick it up from the External Link at the top of the page (sq:Faqja kryesore).

Others may also have gone AWOL. The intro talks of 301/291 Wikis, but there are only 278 in the numbered list.

(I don't need a reply, it's just something which may need looking into.) Narky Blert (talk) 17:53, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

I have informed the bot owner to the bot that do the update that there is languages missing. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:05, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
Do we need a phabricator task to address the missing wikis on the table? --Agusbou2015 (talk) 23:35, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, I've issued the phabricator task. --Agusbou2015 (talk) 23:41, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
The task has been rejected as "invalid", but when will you add the missing wikis on the list? --Agusbou2015 (talk) 23:50, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Ukrainian Wikipedia not listed[edit]

I notice that Ukrainian Wikipedia is not listed on the table. Is that language version closed? --Agusbou2015 (talk) 23:25, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Also Bosnian Wikipedia is missing. --Agusbou2015 (talk) 23:32, 6 June 2018 (UTC) Agusbou2015 (talk) 23:32, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Hello! Bot gets errors on local data obtaining, probably due to technical works. Currently I stopped the bot and reverted page to last full version.

Turkmenian Wikipedia (170.) is not written in her own alphabet at Language local column[edit]

The Turkmen Wikipedia is not written in her own alphabet. It is not Arabic or Cyrillic style. Why? Can somebody fix it?--Porbóllett (talk) 18:41, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Fixed. --Emaus (talk) 01:54, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Thank you.--Porbóllett (talk) 18:28, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Santali language link[edit]

Hello! The Santali language link goes to w:ᱥᱟᱱᱛᱟᱲᱤ and not w:Santali language. Thank you! Ed [talk] [en] 22:46, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Hello! Fixed. --Emaus (talk) 20:59, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

Hausa Wikipedia (#223) native name written only with Arabic script[edit]

Hausa Wikipedia (#223) native name is written only with Arabic script, despite the language is also written with the Latin script. Please fix it. --Agusbou2015 (talk) 23:03, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Added "Hausa" into local name. --Emaus (talk) 20:58, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

3rd bullet under "Notes"[edit]

The page states:

    ""Images" is the number of locally uploaded files."

In the chart, "Images" is replaced by the header "Files". Should it be changed? The Graceful Hobo (talk) 13:14, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --Antonio1952 (talk) 20:05, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Vietnamese entry in table[edit]

No depth is given, just "--". Is there a reason for this? I suppose I could calculate the depth by hand. Bruce leverett (talk) 18:17, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Hello! This is caused by artificially grown total page number which distorts the real situation. --Emaus (talk) 21:51, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
