I like the stub ratio part.

I've felt for a long time that certain Wikipedias are really stubby in
general, this really confirms some of those ideas.


For example, the Cebuano Wikipedia is apparently the stubbiest.

It gets a bit thrown off by the really really small Wikis - the
least-stubbiest is supposedly the one in Tsonga, but then their only
article in the actual language is the mainpage.

The least-stubby of Wikipedias with over 1K articles is the Ripuarian
Wikipedia. The least-stubby with over 10K is the English Wikipedia

I guess some of the newer Wikipedias have gotten the wrong idea
thinking that quantity is more important than quality... of the 10
stubbiest, 6 were created relatively recently (Cebuano, Lombard,
Novial, Piedmontese, Ligurian, Siberian).

So here's a little nudge to everyone... why not go to
Special:Shortpages or Special:Random on your favourite Wiki and expand
some articles? How about it?
