Milestones, Openings, and Wikinews contest
News from other Wikipedias
In late March, the
Karachay-Balkar Wikipedia opened its doors. At the same time, after being closed and having its database locked some time ago, the Tokipona Wikipedia was completely removed.
Esperanto Wikipedia declared April to be the "Month of Wikipedia" ("Monato de Vikipedio"), featuring a community-supported contest with prizes to expand articles in the list of 1000 articles.
News from Wikinews
Wikinews will be holding a writing contest from 1 May to 22 May. All are invited to compete; winners will receive barnstars.
