Sorry, I've no idea what you're looking at: I don't see any continuous 
upward trend, as I said in the previous message. Sure, if you compare 
the last month of each wiki with the month of en.wiki's highest peak you 
can prove whatever you want.

Thanks for the information! The en.wiki articles are not super-clear 
about it.
Are its competitors less able to (allegedly) convert the web population 
in a mass of dumbs, or of otherwise draining all their mental energies? :p
