...the single-sentence paragraphs, the lack of flow within paragraphs, the broken connections between paragraphs, the weak large-scale architecture in the article, the huge number of references for a paltry amount of data, the lack of distinction between important and trivial facts.

Is it worth having an FAQ like other heavy traffic articles? E.g. "Why should Wikipedia have an article on itself?"
The "sub-articles" that were split off from this article are badly in need of attention, as are several other related articles. The following all need work:

Under the contributors section it states that Wales held a study and then states several statistics. The study was held in 2006 and gives a very poor representation of the current Wikipedia eight years later.Lesabre35 (talk) 21:02, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
I'd like to say this is a good point. -- Taku (talk) 12:33, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
Actually there is a para that cites more recent stats regarding contributions; I'm going to merge that to Wales para. -- Taku (talk) 00:35, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
I found an image in the Wikicommons that pretty clearly shows who all has been contributing and what kind of growth the site has undergone. I'd like to move the image of all of those pie charts right by where the study is discussed farther down by the statistics about the different languages that are being posted on, which would make more sense anyways, and replacing it with this image that goes right along with Wales' point.Lesabre35 (talk) 19:31, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
The impact section states that the value of WP if it ran ads was estimated at about $580 million. It would be nice to have a 2014 estimated valuation, if one exists.OnBeyondZebrax (talk) 22:27, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm not aware of any stats, but yes that one has to be updated. -- Taku (talk) 01:26, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
I've found a pretty reliable source with an estimation I'd like to add.Lesabre35 (talk) 20:08, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Go ahead and put the estimate. -- Taku (talk) 11:05, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
How accurate are the statistics on gender? When I signed up for an account, it was an optional question, and I didn't commit. I am therefore gender neutral. Has anyone identified the proportion of editors in this category? Pkeets (talk) 16:06, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm the only one who feels the article is too long? Sure, it's important to cite statistics, but this feels overdone here; like a chart of articles rated by class: is it so important to cite the number of B-class article in "English Wikipedia"? I think some materials can go to sub-articles. Maybe we should start something like assessment of Wikipedia articles. -- Taku (talk) 00:01, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Wikipedia has done a great job in establishing an authentic source of information of encyclopedia in all languages that is really un paralleled I have ever seen on the web. Wikipedia no doubt deserves the congratulations from all" readers on reaching around the covered topics. Wikipedia has taken utmost care about the linguistic values that could be thought possible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Irfan1320 (talk • contribs) 08:09, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
