"The most important thing," Wales told us on a press call today, "is
the increased diversity in languages." According to Wales, around 30%
of Wikipedia articles had been in English and already that number has
dropped to 20%. "We're going to see very very large projects in
languages where we've never seen such things before," he explained.
- I'd thought en:wp was still about 30% of everything - ~1/3 the
edits, ~1/3 the articles, ~1/3 the page hits, etc.
What are the various numbers? Is there anywhere to look them up, or
something to look them up from which they can be derived?
The article one should be easy: 15 million articles in total, 3 million of
English --> ~20%. (The 15 million is off the top of my head, but
should be right.)
For edits, I guess you can only use the cumulative totals, that are easily
available, for English it is 437,897,137, the total is 1 186 000 000 -->
~36% (See Special:Statistics, and Emijrp's counter)
If I read http://stats.wikimedia.org/reportcard
right, the pageviews are 8
billion on the English, 14 billion total --> ~57%
