How can there be a Wikipedia for Kanuri if there are no articles?
+14
Level 55
Apr 20, 2020
They don't have any articles, but there is a Wikipedia homepage in Kanuri. Same with Herero. Thanks for asking! :)

Level 81

Please accept Kyrgyz for Kirghiz?

Level 55
Apr 22, 2020
Thanks for telling me. Those type-ins have been added.

Level 56
May 1, 2020
I really like this quiz. I was going to ask the question about Kanuri and Herero but i see it has already been answered. Keep up the good work!
+4
Level 55
May 1, 2020
Thanks! :)
+4
Level 51
Jul 4, 2020
Could you accept "Dhivehi" as a typein for Divehi?
+4
Level 62
Feb 27, 2022
Especially as Dhivehi is the actually-correct spelling!
+3
Level 51
Mar 7, 2021
Lol... 4.20 is a low rating?
+1
Level 55
Mar 7, 2021
Yeah I assumed it would have 4.70 or 4.80
+5
Level 65
Mar 24, 2021
I rated five stars! This is basically a non-controversial "all languages" quiz because of the vast amount of wiki languages, a quiz I have always wanted to take. And now, I'm stuck wondering why I've never heard of number 2. This quiz made me realize how stupid I was when I spent ten minutes typing "ASL" and "American Sign Language" before realizing that its spoken....
+7
Level 55
Mar 24, 2021
thanks! interestingly, cebuano only has 182 active users but 99% of the articles are written by bots
+5
Level 73
Feb 27, 2022
I thought something was up. And I guess the same goes for Waray-Waray? But how do these bots write coherent articles?
+7
Level 55
Mar 3, 2022
i looked into it a little more : apparently the creator of lsjbot, a bot used to mass translate wikipedia articles, was swedish which is why it is 3rd on the list. his wife's native language was cebuano, so that is why almost 5.4 million articles were translated on her behalf
+2
Level 58
Mar 19, 2023
I thought it made entries for plants and stuff.....
+1
Level 58
Mar 19, 2023
"The bot primarily focuses on articles about living organisms and geographical entities (such as rivers, dams, and mountains)."
+4
Level 55
Mar 19, 2023
Not exclusively, though. According to Vice:

"The particular bot writing the Cebuano edition is called 'Lsjbot' and was created by the Swedish physicist Sverker Johansson. His creation is responsible for over 24 of the edition’s 29.5 million edits and according to research done by Guilherme Morandini, another global administrator, has created 5,331,028 of the edition’s 5,378,570 articles, or 99.12 percent of its article creations."

Although this bot in particular bot didn't create all bot-generated articles, there are more than 1,600 Wikipedia bots that have AI-translated articles (Wilson).

Wilson, Kyle. “The World's Second Largest Wikipedia Is Written Almost Entirely by One Bot.” VICE, Kyle Wilson, 11 Feb. 2020, https://www.vice.com/en/article/4agamm/the-worlds-second-largest-wikipedia-is-written-almost-entirely-by-one-bot

Level 71
May 27, 2021
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it weird that a language spoken by 5.5 million people on Sumatra (Minangkabau) and "South Azerbaijani," whatever that is, have more articles than Hindi and Cantonese?
+8
Level 54
Jun 5, 2021
I imagine it's primarily due to bot activity, which is also the reason that Cebuano Wikipedia has over 5 million articles but only 172 users.
+4
Level 52
Feb 27, 2022
Ha - I was assuming there just happened to be a handful of incredibly dedicated Filipino nerds, but I guess a script could convert from English pretty easily.
+8
Level 82
Feb 27, 2022
which could result in some very badly translated pages, which might account for the low number of users.
+3
Level 54
Jun 5, 2021
Nice quiz! Please accept Swazi as a type in for Swati.
+3
Level 55
Jun 5, 2021
Done, thanks
+13
Level 82
Feb 27, 2022
There's really not a single page written in Elvish or Klingon? I find that kind of hard to believe.
+9
Level 82
Feb 27, 2022
and not Pig Latin, either? C'mon where all my people with no lives out there... ?
+4
Level 76
Feb 27, 2022
Zaza for Zazaki, Piemontese for Piedmontese, Maldivian for Divehi and Old English for Anglo-Saxon? A map would also be a very nice addition I think.
+3
Level 55
Feb 27, 2022
I don't really make quizzes anymore so I probably won't add a map, but I'll add the type ins you suggested
+2
Level 63
Feb 27, 2022
Sami for Northern Sami?
+2
Level 55
Mar 3, 2022
Ok
+1
Level 61
Nov 7, 2022
Could you add Extremeño/Extremeno for Extremaduran?
+2
Level 55
Feb 4, 2023
Sorry for the late reply. But sure -- I have added this.
+1
Level 72
Feb 22, 2023
I know its a very minor suggestion, but can you accept Chewa for Chichewa?
+2
Level 55
Feb 22, 2023
done, thanks
+1
Level 63
May 8, 2023
Can you accept Muskogee for Muscogee?

also feel extremely dumb for missing the Baltics, Basque, and Latin while getting Sichuan Yi, Chichewa and Tahitian

+3
Level 72
Oct 15, 2023
Can I get Circassian(/West Circassian) for Adyghe? I cannot ever manage to put the d y g and h in the right order even when I'm trying to type the "proper" name.

Also Emilia-Romagnol without the n? Abkhaz for Abkhazian? Other than that the type-in game is strong.

Also can "belarussian" be a type-in for both belarusian answers instead of only one?

+2
Level 60
Oct 15, 2023
Fun quiz. I was surprised that Berber and Ndebele (both Northern and Southern) were missing.
+2
Level 70
Oct 15, 2023
There are some Berber languages here like Kabyle but overall no Berber language is academically popular. That being said I'm surprised how many articles are written in Egyptian Arabic :)
+3
Level 56
Oct 15, 2023
Papiamento should be acceptable for papiamentu. Great quiz!
+2
Level 71
Dec 17, 2023
Please accept Papiamento for Papiamentu, Patois for Jamaican Patois, Inuit for Inuktitut, and Romagnol for Emilian-Romagnol
+2
Level 52
Dec 29, 2023
Patois is a generic word so it can't be used as a type-in. However I agree with the other suggestions
+1
Level 42
Dec 29, 2023
Kirgiz language should be Kyrgyz language
+1
Level 47
Jan 30, 2024
kanuri,herero,afar and muscogee no longer exist because of lack of pages. same source.

Level 60
Feb 14, 2024
They're still readable, so they probably still qualify.
