I've watched the rise of the blog for the past year with interest. Never thought i'd write one, but things change. Anyways this blog will hopefully chart the progress of Wikinews from its small beginnings - to world domination. Basically this blog is a place for all my rants

A very good day

We've hit two major milestones in the past few hours. We now have over 2,500 legitimate news articles and there has been in excess of 100,000 edits to the wiki since its foundation. 50,000 of these edits have been in the past 92 days alone. Thats 543 edits a day. Not bad, but I reckon at the moment we are hitting in excess of 700 edits a day... so we could hit the next milestone, 150,000 edits, in less than 70 days time... but of course by then hopefully we will have 1,000 edits a day!

Aside from these two milestones, wikinews now has over 3,365 registered users and a total of over 13,350 pages in the database. So things really do seem to be going well... and of course our Alexa ranking has stayed up after the London bombings.

Long live Wikinews!
