Usually, jubilees of individual Wikipedias announced
here are not as interesting to the readers as they are
to the one who announces them.
Nevertheless, here's one milestone that I think is
well worth being noted. It's not exactly the number of
articles passed - 100 - it's rather the Wikipedia that
has produced them.
I'm talking about the Waray-Waray edition which was
created not even a fortnight ago. Sure, it's still a
very long way to go from having 100 articles to having
a full-size encyclopedia. But then again, almost half
of all Wikipedias have not yet reached that mark even
though they have existed for much longer then
Is there something we can learn from this example? I
most definitely think so. It's the fact that neither
setting up new language subdomains by the dozen nor
ruling them out altogether is the right answer to the
question of multilingualism. Instead - at least that's
what I'm convinced of - will having a clear set of
rules for new languages and as well as looking into
each case individually increase Wikipedia's value even
more in the future.
My congratulations to our friends from the
Philippines! Please keep up the good work.
