Latest on Lakota Wikipedia
From this website:
- Incubator is where anyone can help start a new language edition of Wikipedia (or another Wikimedia project). This is also the case for Lakota, so it is not yet approved (and doesn't yet have its own subdomain lkt.wikipedia.org) but it will be when there is an active editing community.

Question about the Scots Gaelic Wikipedia
I clicked on the link to the Scots Gaelic Wikipedia, and I got through to a page that "This page is in Irish". All right, I am aware that Scottish Gaelic and Irish are both similar languages, as, along with Manx, they are both Goidelic_languages (for all I know, they may be mutually intelligible) but I have always taken them to be separate languages, so why does the Scots Gaelic Wikipedia have this at the top? ACEOREVIVED (talk) 22:15, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
- I suppose the "this page is in Irish" bar is the translate feature of your Google Chrome browser. While it's in Scottish Gaelic, Chrome determined that it is written in Irish because they are so similar and because Google Translate doesn't support Scottish Gaelic (yet).

Embarrassingly outdated tables and stats
A slang Wikipedia would have to clarify (assuming it is English slang) where the slang would come from - American English slang is probably quite different to U.K. English slang, not to mention the fact that there are probably variations in slang around different parts of the British Isles. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 23:03, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
- To create a "new" language version of Wikipedia (or another Wikimedia project, like Wiktionary), the project must pass the m:Language proposal policy. Since slang doesn't have an ISO 639 code, it cannot be created. Also, it probably doesn't pass this requirement: "language must be sufficiently unique that it could not coexist on a more general wiki". A Wikipedia in slang would not promote the WMF's goal of sharing knowledge to all humans because everyone who can understand slang English can understand normal English. In addition, if created (which will never happen), it would set a precedent for creating wikis for different registers of languages. Other language Wikipedias might want their own "slang project". Besides, how do we decide what is "slang" and what isn't? If you are interested in creating an encyclopedia in slang, I suggest you try Wikia. πr2 (t • c) 02:21, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Link to pages on en-wiki?
- I have changed the link  so it works currently, but this or something similar has to be done again if the list is copied from meta:List of Wikipedias. PrimeHunter (talk) 13:04, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
List by usage?
- It's explained in the meta version of this page, m:List of Wikipedias#Notes, and expanded on at m:Wikipedia article depth. –Quiddity (talk) 17:53, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
Removal of "detailed list"
I think the "detailed list" section should be removed as it is just a copy of the list on meta wiki, by looking at the page history, it looks like it was started by an IP editor --TheChampionMan1234 09:53, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
- I second that. Intro says: "as of August 2012, there were 285 Wikipedias". Were more Wikipedias introduced after that date or we are still just at 285 still? werldwayd (talk) 20:56, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
In "List" section, we say: "Size is given in decadic logarithm of number of articles. '6' means more than 1 000 000, '5' more than 100 000, '4' more than 10 000." Fair enough. But what does size 3 or 2 mean? These are used in the list, but no explanation in intro to the "List" sub-section This needs clarification. werldwayd (talk) 21:01, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
- It's counting the number of Zeros. 3 = 1000+, 2 = 100+, 1 = 10+, 0 = 1+. There's a link to decadic logarithm there, and the first three appear to be examples to describe the process.--126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:31, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
The new pie chart is an excellent idea, but it does not seem quite right to me. It is saying that the others are 51% yet the angle shown is clearly less than a semi-circle, not slightly more. Is this a bug? --Bduke (Discussion) 22:05, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorting of depth column doesn't work
Sorting for the depth column at the "10000+ articles" tables isn't working properly. It uses lexicographic sort (ie. 1<12<123<2) instead of usual sorting. Could someone correct it? I don't know how, otherwise I would do it. Also, can you mention how to correct it? Anachor (talk) 16:41, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Sort by active community size
I find sorting the Wikipedias merely by the number of articles rather curious. The article puts a lot of emphasis on the sheer number of articles. Would there be much resistance if it was changed to emphasize the number of active editors in the given language instead? --denny vrandečić (talk) 17:44, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
Should discontinued languages be included in this list?
The Choctaw version of Wiki was discontinued in 2007, among several other languages. Should the deleted and discontinued versions be included in the "Detailed List" section? Jarble (talk) 21:38, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
new colomn ISO 15924
Hi! I thing that a column showing the used ISO 15924 script codes would offer a new view on the varieties of the WMF projects. Only a few language projects are using more then one script: sr:, etc. lɛʁi ʁɑjnhɑʁt (Leri Reinhart)
