Update language list at Wikipedia portal
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

As stated at [[m:Talk:Www.wikipedia.org portal#To the admin team at Meta,]], the
Wikipedia portal (www.wikipedia.org) is woefully out-of-date. Many languages
that have had 100 or more articles for months are still not listed, and several
languages that should have been promoted to higher ranges, like the
1,000-article range, are still stuck at a lower range.

In detail, wikis that need to be added:

  • Georgian Wikipedia (ka:) 1,152 articles (1000+) [[ka:მთავარი გვერდი|ქართული]]
  • Armenian Wikipedia (hy:) 542 articles (100+) [[hy:Գլխավոր Էջ|Հայերէն]]
  • Bengali Wikipedia (bn:) 809 articles (100+) [[bn:প্রধান পাতা|বাংলা]]
  • Northern Sami Wikipedia (se:) 284 articles (100+) [[se:Váldosiidu|Sámegiella]]
  • Breton Wikipedia (br:) 288 articles (100+) [[br:Degemer|Brezhoneg]]
  • Ossetian Wikipedia (os:) 230 articles (100+) [[os:Сæйраг фарс|Ирон æвзаг]] (or [[os:Сæйраг фарс|Иронау]], which is used by

interwiki links)

  • Tok Pisin Wikipedia (tpi:) 113 articles (100+) [[tpi:|Tok Pisin]]

Wikis that need to be promoted:

  • Vietnamese Wikipedia (vi:) 1,216 articles (1000+) [[vi:Trang Chính|Tiếng Việt]]
  • Javanese Wikipedia (jv:) 1,419 articles (1000+) [[jv:Kaca Utama|Basa Jawi]]

Wikis whose article counts need to be updated:

  • English Wikipedia (en:) 557 000+ articles
  • Japanese Wikipedia (ja:) 116 000+ 記事
  • Swedish Wikipedia (sv:) 74 000+ artiklar
  • Dutch Wikipedia (nl:) 69 000+ artikelen
  • Italian Wikipedia (it:) 43 000+ articoli
  • German Wikipedia (de:) 229 000+ Artikel
  • French Wikipedia (fr:) 106 000+ articles
  • Polish Wikipedia (pl:) 66 000+ haseł
  • Spanish Wikipedia (es:) 47 000+ artículos
  • Portuguese Wikipedia (pt:) 48 000+ artigos

This task should be performed at least every few months, because it reflects the
development of each Wikipedia community. A more diverse selection of languages
on this page also gives the visitor the impression that we truly are a worldwide
effort, not just a Euro-centric one.

The Wikipedia portal can be updated from a page on meta, take this report there,
this is not an appropriate place for it.

Sorry about that. For posterity's sake, here's the page Ævar is referring to:
