    Tamil Wikipedia enters 15th year, How many articles have you created?

    Tamil wikipedia lacks active users. Swedish has 3,784,250 articles even though there are only 10 million Swedish people in the world. Tamil has only 91,610 articles even though there are 80 million Tamil speakers in the world. Please read this recent announcement from Tamil Wikipedia:- goo.gl/zjEYo1 Other Indian languages also have very few articles only. Tamil Wikipedia enters 15th year, How many articles have you created?

    Great to know from the author that Tamil Wikipedia has entered 15th year now and so far listed 91,610 articles in it. It is clearly evident from the above information that compared to the Tamil population the articles listed were very less and negligible. The major reason may be, it is easy to talk in Tamil even in rough pattern, when it comes to writing , we have to follow the traditional way of writing as we cannot append the articles the way we talk with others casually. So that is probably bothering many writers I believe. Nevertheless the Tamil Sangams across the globe must take initiative to include more articles in Wikipedia.
