1,000,000 articles[edit]

I think we are pretty close to hitting 1,000,000 articles globally, anyone care to confirm this?? looking at the starts in sept 8th or 9th we were~18k articles away at a rate of ~3k articles a day which would roughly mean that by the 15th or 16th we should roughly be there. anyone care to take a look? today is the 14th BTW

the organization of this table is AWFUL. it jumps from 2001 to 2004 to 2003 without any order! 200.162.248.213 20:34, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)

other wikis than german and english[edit]

Why aren't e.g. the 100,000th and 200,000th French article listed?(spanish, dutch, italien,...)

Needs attention[edit]

This page looks to have fallen into disrepair. Needs weeding/reordering to give a chronological timeline. One milestone likely to come up before too long: English Wikipedia hits 1,000,000 articles more than largest wikipedia in another language193.133.69.162 12:33, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

100 millionth edit[edit]

I think this is definitely worthy of inclusion. I think we don't have to include 90 million, 80 million etc. because 100 million is more significant. --218.186.9.1 08:27, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

First article[edit]

What is the first Wikipedia article? --Myselfalso

Move to Meta: space?[edit]

It seems more appropriate somehow... ----Anonymous DissidentTalk 10:58, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

It's about every project, not just Meta. 212.219.19.15 11:15, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
I understand that, but I'm not sure it is right for the Meta mainspace. ----Anonymous DissidentTalk 04:43, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
Agreed with AD. It's fine as is. I wonder if we could coordinate the total-article-count interest here -- if enough people ask for it, one should be able to reasonably guess at the total count of all wikis at a moment in time. -- sj | help translate |+

Portuguese Wikipedia[edit]

Portuguese Wikipedia have timeline of the milestones (click here).

Sister projects[edit]

Is this page only for Wikipedias? It would be nice include some numbers about the sister projects. Regards. Emijrp 20:07, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Something is here Wikimedia_News#Projects_by_number_of_articles/pages. Przykuta 20:11, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Consensus about ordering[edit]

Hi everyone, I'm new to editing Wikipedia and just got around this page (and other statistics pages). The ordering seems a bit random, e.g. in the "all" section. It starts with listing milestones for words, then articles and in the middle of there comes a record for edits. Can we get a consensus about ordering? My suggestion is to order it chronological, but with three columns and then write milestones for articles, edits and words in the corresponding column. I think that would get the best overview. /PatrikN (talk) 14:36, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Working out the hundred thousand milestones[edit]

I am keen to work out what were all of the hundred thousand milestones in the English Wikipedia (100,000th to 900,000th articles). Only some have been recorded (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Hundred_thousand_milestones for those I have collected so far) Is there any way to do this? Thanks Greenshed (talk) 00:54, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Nope (as far as I know). "Milestone articles" are hard to pin down even hours after the fact. I don't think there's any practical way to go that far back in time and determine the specific articles for those milestones. (But I could be wrong.) - dcljr (talk) 05:39, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
