Since you ask 5500 articles 34500 images 20 million words. We think
this would fill 20+ volumes of Encyclopaedia Britannica. You cannot go
much further on a DVD or 4Gb memory stick unless you do what the
Release Version people are doing and only include thumbnails of the
images without image pages. We include the full image page cos we
think the licence requires it but in the end we have scaled down the
images to below full resolution but much better than thumbnail.
This is the third time around so we've had a couple of years to work
out what to do. If you want to smile though go to
and add www.citizendium.org
as the second graph for comparison. Given
we are mainly offline to be ahead of them online has a certain sugary
Agree about child checked but we hesitated on child-friendly because
the reading age of a lot of it is too high (16+).

thanx for help. Gone for
Wikipedia: 40,000 child-checked
articles & images
It's probably too late now, but I'd quibble this sounds like the
children did the checking ;-)
Is that 40,000 articles with images, or 40,000 articles plus images in total?
I notice already one teachers discussion forum
has a teacher
congratulating us on getting the difficult part of the Inca history
correct "unlike the main Wikipedia". Of course, that was just version
selection to a good editor.
Ha! Might be worth noting that on the discussion page, someone'll be pleased...
