WIKIPEDIA – The Free Encyclopedia

WIKIPEDIA – The 5th most popular site on the Internet, with over 7 billion potential viewers, was launched on January 15, 2001 (1st edit by co-founder Jimmy Wales) and has been freely available worldwide (in over 300 languages) for 18 years, 5 months and 5 daysWikipedia has 50,444,538 total articles (5,878,018 in English) (*VITAL*: 101001000; *BEST*: 29,666; *TOPS*: Last 24 hours; Last Week: Top25; Top5000) – and has (for the English version) 1,161 administrators and 126,898 active editors, including over 1,200 PhDs and 110 MDs – as of June 20, 2019.

I would object to adding this, as the Wikipedia article should be a neutral description of Wikipedia, not a venue to promote Wikipedia. A similar infographic-like template wouldn't be allowed on the page for any other organization, so it shouldn't be allowed here. --Ahecht (TALK

Yes, the above looks like it would fail WP:NOTPROMO...  — Amakuru (talk) 13:47, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
Maybe it could be a WP page, or an essay-type article. Randy Kryn (talk) 13:55, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
