Afrikaans Wikipedia 20th birthday
16 November 2021
Afrikaans Wikipedia celebrated its 20th birthday on the 16th of November 2021. To mark the occasion Wikimedia South Africa will hosted a celebration for the Afrikaans Wikipedia editing community. The event included discussions on the growth of the Wiki over the years, challenges the Wiki faces, and possible solutions to continue the growth of the Wiki and its community. The event coincided with the publication of the 101,000th article on Afrikaans Wikipedia.
The event was organised by Deon Steyn from Board member of Wikimedia South Africa and in partnership with the Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns in Pretoria. Only about 20 people were invited to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions.
