Happy Birthday Wiki!

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, turned 4 years old 15 January 2005.

The English Wikipedia alone now has more than 450,000 articles. Soon, we will know the winner of the Wikipedia:Half-million pool. As of today, bets are still open on when the millionth English article will be reached (Wikipedia:Million pool)

Fifty four of the non-English Wikipedias have over 1,000 articles.

On 29 December 2004, for the first time, Wikipedia was listed on Alexa's list (http://www.alexa.com/site/ds/top_sites?ts_mode=lang&lang=en) of the top 100 English-language web sites, at #99. On Wikipedia Day 2005, it was listed at rank 87.

Let's party!
