Source for nationality?[edit]

"Most editors (20%) reside in the United States, followed by Germany (12%) and Russia (7%). The only country not in Europe or North America in the top 10, is India (3%)." Is there a source for that? I'd love to see it! Also, this statement requires a date. And the section title should rather be "residence" than nationality I guess. Guaka (talk) 17:51, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Exactly, I keep reading statistics about Wikipedia's editors like nationality, gender, education but I keep wondering where they get this data, most editors I encounter are from India, and most Indians tend to have a rotating IP address so they will tend to be fictionally overrepresented, in fact the same goes for Vietnam, I don't get where they get these statistics from. --Hoang the Hoangest (talk) 02:23, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Most such numbers come from one of the m:Editor Surveys. WhatamIdoing (talk) 00:03, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Brazilian Portuguese option[edit]

We need translate "pt" to "pt-br". It's different languages. I was blocked trying to have an better Wikipedia.org

Thanks.

What do you mean by the term "adminship"?
What do you want to do by that?
Interested to know. Elsid-h (talk) 22:34, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
If you want to become an Administrator (not me), then you should first read Wikipedia:Administrators then go to Wikipedia:Requests For Adminship. You can then create a subpage under the Wikipedia:Requests For Adminship directory (i.e. Wikipedia:Requests For Adminship/Example).

Suggestion; time-expiring watchlist entry[edit]

Dear all, I find I often want to watch a wiki page for say a week or two - typically after I have made an edit, to see if it is is accepted. I suggest the 'watchlist' options be extended to offer this option; i.e. a time-limited watchlist entry ('drops off watchlist in 2 weeks time'). JCJC777 (talk) 17:08, 10 May 2017 (UTC)User:JCJC777

@JCJC777: This would be useful. But this is the wrong place to make such suggestions; a better place would be Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals). --Fixuture (talk) 17:02, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

First edit?[edit]

Apparently this page had the first edit ever: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/?oldid=1 made by User:Luis Oliveira. – NixinovaT|C⟩ 20:39, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

Or possibly that was the first revision after one of the early software upgrades. Graham87 (talk · contribs) is the expert on this kind of thing. -- John of Reading (talk) 20:55, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
Yes, it was the first edit after Wikipedia was upgraded to the Phase II software. Earlier edits were imported later. Graham87 00:54, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
