Japanese WP[edit]

The Japanese Wikipedia version now exceeds 1,000,000 articles. Congratulations --Thomas Wozniak (talk) 11:43, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

The Japanese WP is now under 1M again. Seems like they just deleted a thousand or so articles. --Portalian 15:04, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Hundreds of other Wikipedias are available; the largest are listed below:

Rationale: There are 272 other Wikipedias at this time. "Many" is not descriptive, while "Hundreds" is more accurate. "some of the" is a weasel phrase. "the" is more direct. Thank you. Ping me back. Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 04:46, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

At least the last, "the largest are listed below", would simply be incorrect. Something of a judgment of useful content is made, and Wikis like Cebuano (3rd biggest by number of articles) and Waray-Waray (#9), which consist mostly of bot-created stubs are omitted from the list presented here. IMO (and I've lost that argument before), the Swedish and Dutch Wikis should be removed for the same reason - the counter argument is that both of those have a core of a few hundred thousand actual articles (despite the vast majority of the ~3 and 1.8 million articles being bot-created stubs).
I also have a personal dislike for using "hundreds" to mean anything less than three hundred, but that might just be me. Rwessel (talk) 05:52, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
I tend to agree that the current message is better than the proposed message. I have disabled the request due to lack of consensus. Perhaps "Nearly 300 other Wikipedias are available" would work? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:27, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Armenian in the main list[edit]

I am not a wikipedia editor, neither have any statistics other than article count. Armenian wikipedia has almost 200k articles counted now, I suppose they'll hit the number soon. You can watch my IP and make legitimate assumptions (like my opinion might be biased, alright), but maybe Armenian wikipedia could be displayed in the main languages list, to show some love to the editors and contributors.
