Ever wonder what edit to what article "turned over" Wikipedia's odometer? There is one way to find out: Just ask the server.
The links in the first column query the database for the text on pages with the associated ID numbers. Note, that in fulfilling the request, the Wiki software "thinks" it's displaying the page for "index.php", but displays the text of a saved edit to an article, with its timestamp.
In the second column are the permalinks to the actual archival pages, based on a manual search for the timestamped edit. This is followed by any notes and/or explanatory info. Some incremental edits are not accessible for technical or content reasons (the server returns a "not found" message).
Note: The true number of WP edits is not reflected by the data available from this table (it only provides access to page edits with key incremental ID numbers). However, it is a good indicator of how very busy WP has become (currently averaging around two hundred thousand edits every day), and how soon some major archival milestones will be passed. At the time this page was first edited, the official WP edit count was over 74,000,000; however, as of August 25, 2006, there was no WP page with an ID in that range. See this page, which contains live statistics on WP's growth. Also see the Announcements page.
