Year-end summaryEdit

Each of the past few years I've added a "little" year-end summary about article and language counts for each Wikimedia project to the end of the December section (as can be seen at the top of Wikimedia News/2017, Wikimedia News/2016, and so forth). I will be doing that again this year; I just haven't gotten the chance to type it all up yet (that is, copy last year's text and update all the numbers).

Done. - dcljr (talk) 05:27, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, dcljr, for this summary and all your work on this page over the year(s). :) Quiddity (talk) 18:16, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks also from me! --Antonio1952 (talk) 21:56, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Commons content pagesEdit

I've decided to be bold and remove the note to editors about announcing milestones for Commons' "content pages". We already track and announce file-count milestones for Commons. I see no benefit to announcing content-page-count milestones also, given that (1) the content-page count has actually included files for quite a while now, and (2) despite this fact, the content-page count continues to be paradoxically lower than the count of files (presumably because of the 'link' criterion for article counting, but I'm not 100% sure about that). For the record, Commons just passed 70 million "content pages" today (April 19th), more than a month after passing 70 million files. - dcljr (talk) 00:54, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Chinese Wikipedia reached 1,200,000 articles on May 31Edit

I writted it. --Tmv (talk) 14:56, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
OK, but we don't usually announce such milestones (we announce 1M and 1.5M, but not 1.2M). - dcljr (talk) 17:00, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

Mark this page for translationEdit

I request to mark this page and this archive into a translation group, because it can be translated and easily localized into other groups. Thingofme (talk) 14:27, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

I have serious doubts as to whether that would be an improvement. Can you point to a similarly "high-traffic" page on this wiki (i.e., one added to basically every day) that has seen consistent, up-to-date translations maintained over a span of months or years? Also, forgive my ignorance, but what exactly does "localized into other groups" mean? - dcljr (talk) 00:21, 3 January 2022 (UTC)
Another example of this is d:Wikidata:News, although someone forgets it. In the past, some translations of this page has done, but it is inactive. Thingofme (talk) 08:09, 16 January 2022 (UTC)
