Description Minh Nguyễn 2005-05-11 04:18:58 UTC
As stated at [[ portal#To the admin team at Meta,]], the
Wikipedia portal ( is woefully out-of-date.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+)

 - Breton Wikipedia (br:)
   288 articles (100+)

 - 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.
