Moved to Gerrit[edit]

@Matiia, Syum90: I see that stats are still being updated on this page but this is not used anymore. Changes are now made on Gerrit wikimedia/portals project A bit sad that the team responsible for making changes to the page is no longer updating the statistics. --Glaisher (talk) 16:07, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Oh, I see, thanks for letting me know. Matiia (talk) 16:11, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thanks Glaisher, also for other sister projects?--Syum90 (talk) 16:15, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
They said that they were going to make the switch for only wikipedia.org back then. I'm not sure what the current status is though. --Glaisher (talk) 16:45, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thank you very much :-) Syum90 (talk) 16:54, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
@Matiia, Syum90: This has now been done for all the portals so there is probably no point in updating these pages on wiki. See phab:T135929 --Glaisher (talk) 15:21, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I know, I don't update them anymore. Matiia (talk) 17:16, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thanks Glaisher; pinging also MarcoAurelio, who has also updated these pages lately. I think we can unprotecting this and the other portal pages and marking them as deprecated/historical, as proposed by MZMcBride.--Syum90 (talk) 07:20, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
I use this to update the Gerrit repo, so I don't think we should unprotect any on this pages. —MarcoAurelio 09:21, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
So should we keep updating these pages or not? Syum90 (talk) 07:36, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio, Glaisher: ^^ Syum90 (talk) 12:45, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
I don't think you need to keep updating these pages because afaik, a script is used to update the statistics now. If MarcoAurelio (or others) wants to update the page from here, then they are free to do so. --Glaisher (talk) 15:08, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

say "the free encylopedia in [Chinese]" in top 10 languages instead of the article count[edit]

I think you should have a message like "the free encylopedia in [Chinese]" in each of the top 10 languages rather than the number of articles. Very few people are going to choose their encyclopedia by article count rather than language, while large numbers of people are likely to bounce if they aren't sure what they are looking at, in particular not realizing that these are different editions in different language.
