Nostalgia is a link to what Wikipedia looked like back in 2001 when we had only 19,000 articles.
The English Wikipedia now has over 5,932,225 articles. (purge server to refresh number). The five-millionth article, Persoonia terminalis, about a rare shrub, was written by an editor in Australia just after midnight on November 1, 2015.
