500 articles[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

This Wikipedia has reached 500 articles. I will send a press release to Walter, editor-in-chief of Wikizine, and copy the message he will have made of it to this page later. (I have only written something in Dutch, probably he'll translate an extract of it to English for the Wikizine newsletter). Belgian man 13:33, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Wikizine item 10/01/2007[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

On January 10th 2006, this item was recorded in the Wikizine issue of that day:

[YO!] - The Yoruba Wikipedia has reached 500 articles. That may not look very impressive, but it is. This wiki is one of many that was created a long time ago, in 2002, but for many years there was very little activity. Yoruba is a language of Nigeria; although they do have Internet access in Nigera, working on their wiki is not popular. The increased activity on this wiki is mostly the work of one user, w:yo:User:Loadewole, who has written most of the articles in a few weeks. They are a native from Nigeria working at a local university. One person can make the difference between the failure or success of a wiki.

Wikizine has a readership of 580 readers all over the world. The redaction is led by Walter and Pathoschild, both Wikimedia (including Wikipedia) contributors.

For the 1000 articles milestone, maybe I can write an English version of the press release too, and also post it here... (And when I have some time I translate the Dutch version of the little press release for the 500 article milestone.) Belgian man 20:41, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Press release 01/01/2007[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

en English[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

The Yoruba Wikipedia has reached the 500 articles milestone Friday with the Aaro Metta Atorunwa page, a redirect to the article Ààrò Méta Àtòrunwá about the book by Láwuyì Ògúnnìran of the same name. Since the arrival of Loadewole, active at the Obafemi Awolowo University in the Nigerian city of Ife, the number of articles has been increasing exponential. Loadewole has written most of the articles in just a few weeks. From a silly "encyclopedia" who contained merely "articles" about the Latin alphabet's 26 letters, the Yoruba Wikipedia has grown to a project with almost 540 articles, two administrators, an embassy, and especially a very active user from the area where the language is spoken. In the ranking, Wikipedia YO has nestled between the Classical Chinese and the Tahitian editions.

De Yoruba Wikipedia heeft vrijdag de kaap van de 500 artikelen gerond met de pagina Aaro Metta Atorunwa, een redirect naar het artikel Ààrò Méta Àtòrunwá over het gelijknamige boek door Láwuyì Ògúnnìran. Sinds de komst van Loadewole, werkzaam aan de Obafemi Awolowo University in het Nigeriaanse Ife, groeit het aantal artikelen exponentieel. Loadewole heeft op enkele weken tijd het gros van de artikelen geschreven. Van een sullige "encyclopedie" die slechts "artikels" bevatte over de 26 letters van het Latijnse alfabet, is de Yoruba Wikipedia gegroeid naar een project met bijna 540 artikelen, twee moderatoren, een ambassade, en vooral een heel actieve gebruiker uit het gebied waar de taal wordt gesproken. In de ranking heeft Wikipedia YO zich tussen de Klassiek Chinese en de Tahitische editie genesteld.

1,000 articles[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

The Yoruba Wikipedia has reached 1,000 articles with Luba II by User:Loadewole. Congratulations. More information in the press release below. Belgian man 20:12, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

eng English / Press release: Yoruba Wikipedia reaches the number of 1,000 articles[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

On February 12, 2007, 16:12, the Yoruba Wikipedia has welcomed its one thousandth article with the article Luba II about the Tshiluba language. The text was written by Loadewole, who wrote most of the other articles as well. The first 500 articles were being written from October 23, 2002 till December 29, 2006, the second 500 from December 29, 2006 till February 12, 2007, or a good four years opposite less than two months. This edition’s growth seems to be unstoppable, but qualitatively, graphically and structurally, there still has to be worked quite a bit on the majority of the articles. With 1,043 articles, the Yoruba Wikipedia is the 127th; and in the ranking, this edition is between the Samogitian (1,078) and the Zazaki (1,042) encyclopaedias. Within the Niger-Congo language family, only the Swahili Wikipedia is bigger.

fra Français / Communiqué de presse: Wikipédia yoruba atteint les 1000 articles[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

Le 12 février 2007, à 16:12, la Wikipédia yoruba a accueilli son millième article: Luba II, concernant le tchiluba. Le texte a été écrit par Loadewole, qui écrivait la plupart des autres articles aussi. Les premiers 500 articles ont été écrit dès le 23 octobre 2002 jusqu’au 29 décembre 2006, les seconds 500 dès le 29 décembre 2006 jusqu’au 12 février 2007, ou bien un grand quatre ans en face moins de deux mois. La croissance de cette édition semble incessante, mais qualitativement, graphiquement et structurellement, la majorité des articles a encore bien besoin d’une rédaction. Avec 1043 articles, la Wikipédia yoruba est la 127ième; et dans le tableau d’ordre, cette édition se situe entre les encyclopédies samogitienne (1078) et zazaki (1042). Parmi les langues nigéro-congolaises, seulement la Wikipédia swahili est plus grande.

nld Nederlands / Persbericht: Yoruba Wikipedia rondt de kaap van 1000 artikelen[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

Op 12 februari 2007 om 16:12 heeft de Yoruba Wikipedia met het artikel Luba II, over het Tshiluba, het duizendste artikel verwelkomd. De tekst is van de hand van Loadewole, die ook de meeste andere artikelen heeft geschreven. De eerste 500 artikelen werden geschreven van 23 oktober 2002 tot en met 29 december 2006, de tweede 500 van 29 december 2006 tot 12 februari 2007, ofwel dik vier jaar tegenover een kleine twee maand. De groei van deze editie lijkt onstuitbaar, maar kwalitatief, grafisch en structureel moet aan het gros van de artikelen nog wel wat worden gesleuteld. Met 1043 artikelen is de Yoruba Wikipedia de 127ste; in de ranglijst staat deze editie tussen de Samogitiaanse (1078) en de Zazaki (1042) encyclopedieën. Binnen de Niger-Congotaalfamilie is alleen de Swahili Wikipedia groter.
