The English Language Wikipedia passed an interesting
milestone a few hours
The thousand millionth edit was at 1:03 AM this morning
the article on the album Death Breathing was amended by Wikipedian Ser
Amantio di Nicolao, one of over 3.9 million edits done by the Wikipedian
with the highest edit count other than bots.
Pedants may be aware that this is only the thousand million since the move
to MediaWiki software and not all of the hundreds of thousands of previous
edits have since been reloaded. So if we could work out the true counts
since edit one it probably came one, maybe two days earlier.
But Death Breathing got the edit with the thousand million counter.
Happy editing everyone.
