The number of articles in the Ukrainian Wikipedia has reached 750 thousand

The jubilee was an article on the committees of the European Parliament


The number of articles in the Ukrainian version of Wikipedia has reached 750 thousand. This was reported by “Wikimedia Ukraine“.

750-thousand was the article “Komati Evropeiskogo Parliament“, written by the user Tohaomg (Anton Oborin). It is a question about permanent and temporary committees, members of the European Parliament and the order in which they work.

“I have prepared in advance 5 articles it took all night. Of course, I waited to put them on the approach to the anniversary. Every time the competition takes place – whose article will be the anniversary. I participate in this competition all the way since the 500-thousandth article. Why wrote it on the committees of the European Parliament? In society some people just talk about European integration, “go to Europe”, European values. I decided to write something about the European Union and found that this article was not yet in the Ukrainian Wikipedia, though it describes a very significant and meaningful part of the European Parliament”, – said the author.

Over the counter on the main page of Wikipedia, its editors constantly watch. They have mentioned 666 666 articles, and 700 thousand, now preparing for the next “round” number – 800 thousand.

“At our current speed, create articles (which is about 280 articles per day), expect it somewhere in may 2018”, – stated in the message.

We will remind, the Ukrainian Wikipedia is the 16th largest number of articles among all language sections of Wikipedia. However, on average only 2700 registered users are active, i.e. carry at least one change during the month. In 2016 the pages of the Ukrainian Wikipedia have watched at least 500 million times.
