This page is for the announcement of milestones on the Wikimedia projects. If you want to make such an announcement, please post it here and translate it if you can.

Recommended article-count milestones are 100, 500, 1k (1,000), 2k, 5k, then 5k increments to 20k, 10k increments to 100k, 50k increments to 200k, 100k increments to 1M (1,000,000), 500k increments to 2M, 1M increments to 10M. Try mixing things up with other milestones, such as active users or new articles per day.

Wikimedia Forum provides a place for general discussion.

December 2015[edit]

  • Wikipedia ends the year with approximately 37,655,345 articles in 289 languages (plus 2 language wikis with 0 articles), which constitutes a 10% increase in articles over the past year.
  • Wiktionary ends the year with approximately 23,811,391 entries in 152 languages (plus 20 language wikis with 0 entries), which constitutes a 9% increase in entries over the past year.
  • Wikiquote ends the year with approximately 169,972 content pages in 75 languages (plus 14 language wikis with 0 content pages), which constitutes a 4% decrease in content pages over the past year.
  • Wikibooks ends the year with approximately 221,698 book modules in 119 languages (plus 3 language wikis with 0 book modules), which constitutes a 10% increase in book modules over the past year.
  • Wikisource ends the year with approximately 2,551,380 text units in 172 languages (comprising 2,530,741 units in 65 individual language wikis and an additional 20,639 units in 112 languages at the Multiligual Wikisource — 5 languages have content in both places), which constitutes a 39% decrease in text units over the past year.
  • Wikinews ends the year with approximately 208,241 articles in 33 languages, which constitutes a 3% decrease in articles over the past year.
  • Wikiversity ends the year with approximately 79,668 learning modules in 64 languages (comprising 77,925 modules in 16 separate language wikis and an additional 1,743 modules in 64 languages at the Wikiversity Beta — all languages with a dedicated wiki also have some modules at Beta), which constitutes a 14% increase in learning modules over the past year.
  • Wikivoyage ends the year with approximately 86,913 articles in 17 languages, which constitutes a 14% increase in articles over the past year.
  • Wikimedia Commons ends the year with approximately 29,766,948 media files and 121,932 gallery pages, which constitutes a 23% increase in media files and a 3% increase in gallery pages over the past year.
  • Wikispecies ends the year with approximately 447,533 content pages, which constitutes a 8% increase in content pages over the past year.
  • Wikidata ends the year with approximately 15,586,720 items, which constitutes a 20% increase in items over the past year.
  • Wikimedia Incubator ends the year with approximately 100,885 content pages across 623 test wikis in 505 different languages (including any test wikis that have been opened but are currently empty), which constitutes a 30% increase in content pages over the past year (along with 23 more test wikis and 11 more languages).
  • There were 3 new main content wikis created in 2015 (Wikipedias for South Azerbaijani, Goan Konkani, and Northern Luri), one fewer than the four created in 2014.
Note: The article counts listed above are based on stats collected between 23:53:03 and 23:59:49 UTC on 2015-12-31, and include pages that count as articles according to MediaWiki's definition (reflected at each wiki's Special:Statistics page). Language counts include closed wikis and count "Simple English" as a separate language when such a wiki exists within a project.

  • Several Wikisources have "shrunk" below notable milestones as a result of this month's regularly-scheduled recount — probably because of recent changes to the 'wgContentNamespaces' configuration variable, which specifies which namespaces are included in each wiki's "article count". (Note: the "current" article counts listed below are for 22 minutes after midnight UTC on Dec 22nd; the recount occurred at 5 a.m. UTC on Dec 21st.)
    • The English Wikisource has fallen below 600,000 text units (currently at 559,862 text units, a 23% drop from 24 hours before).
    • The French Wikisource has fallen below 300,000 text units (currently 243,891, a 79% drop).
    • The Italian Wikisource has fallen below 100,000 text units (currently 92,169, a 14% drop).
    • The Polish Wikisource has fallen below 100,000 text units (currently 95,438, a 17% drop).
    • The Swedish Wikisource has fallen below 15,000 text units (currently 14,134, a 62% drop).

  • The Min Dong Wikipedia has reached 10,000 registered users.
  • The Kyrgyz Wikipedia has reached 50,000 articles, as a bot has added thousands of short articles about places in the United States.
17
  • The Arabic Wikipedia has reached 400,000 articles.
  • The Tajik Wikipedia has reached 40,000 articles.
  • The Thai Wiktionary has reached 60,000 entries; the entry count has now risen by about 60% since the beginning of December (which means over 35% of the current entries are for individual Chinese characters).
  • The Romanian Wikibooks has fallen below 1,000 book modules (currently at 833), after some works were deemed to fall outside of the project's criteria for inclusion.
14
  • The Mongolian Wiktionary has reached 5,000 entries (a very low "article count" given the recent bot activity on the wiki [see December 11th, below] — the vast majority of edits the bot is making are resulting in entries containing no wikilinks).
13

11
  • The Mongolian Wiktionary has reached 100,000 page edits, as a bot has been modifying thousands of entries over the last few days — most of which, it seems, the same user initially created about a year ago.
  • The Punjabi Wikipedia has reached 20,000 articles.
  • The Catalan Wikinews has reached 10,000 total pages.
9
  • The Asturian Wikipedia has reached 1,000,000 page edits.
  • The Thai Wiktionary has reached 40,000 entries, with thousands of entries for Chinese characters created by a bot over the last couple of days.

  • The Mongolian Wikipedia has reached 15,000 articles.
  • The Cebuano Wikipedia has reached 1,500,000 articles, as a bot has just added over 16,000 short articles about places in Indonesia in the last 27 hours.

  • The Interlingua Wiktionary has fallen below 1,000 entries (currently at 970), after a few hundred entries marked for deletion were removed by a global sysop.
  • The Wikimania 2016 wiki has reached 100 content pages.

  • The Kongo Wikipedia has reached 1,000 articles.
  • The Catalan Wikisource has fallen below 10,000 text units (currently at 7,111), apparently as a result of being recounted (since there is no obvious editing or deletion activity that would explain the large change).

  • The Hawaiian Wikipedia has reached 2,000 articles, as an IP editor has added dozens of essentially empty "year" stubs (up through 2074!), clearly for the sole purpose of pushing the wiki to that milestone; the Hawaiian on these pages is not completely accurate (if at all), so the pages should either be corrected by someone who knows Hawaiian or they should be deleted by a cross-wiki admin.
  • The Kyrgyz Wikipedia has reached 40,000 articles due to bot activity.
  • The Serbian Wiktionary has reached 20,000 entries due to bot activity.
  • The Oriya Wikisource has reached 10,000 page edits.
  • The English Wikiversity has reached 20,000 uploaded files.

  • The Malayalam Wikipedia has reached 40,000 articles.
  • The Sesotho Wiktionary has reached 10,000 page edits (note that almost every entry on the wiki contains English text that needs translating into Sesotho).

Older news[edit]

For older news items, see the archive at Wikimedia News/2015. Archives for earlier years are listed at the top of this page.

Projects by number of content pages[edit]

The tables below are arranged chronologically by the original launch dates of the major content projects, within two main groups: "interlingual" projects (different wiki for each language) followed by "multilingual" projects (all languages on the same wiki). The older Wikimedia projects (such as Wikipedia) tend to be larger than the newer ones, but note that these tables are not arranged by number of sub-wikis nor by total article count.

For the interlingual projects, within each table the individual language editions are arranged by milestone level, and then chronologically by the date the milestones were first reached.

Note: You can go directly to the table for Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, Wikiquotes, Wikibooks, Wikisources, Wikinews, Wikiversities, Wikivoyages, Wikimedia Commons, Wikispecies, or Wikidata.
