Article count milestones are nice!
However, I remind those who were distracted in 2008 that article count 
is a largely irrelevant piece of our statistics since 2008; both 
stats.wikimedia.org and www.wikipedia.org (plus the other project 
portals) don't use it at all to "rank" projects, etc.

To me it seems the other wikis are rather stable. There is no wiki in 
top ten with 50 % bot created articles and after sv.wiki (13th) you have 
to reach positions 20th (vi) and 24th (vi) to find similar amounts.
