Gmane
From: Andre Engels <andreengels-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: common and lacking interwiki links
Newsgroups: gmane.science.linguistics.wikipedia.misc
Date: Tuesday 28th November 2006 16:19:58 UTC (over 11 years ago)
I have updated the list at [[meta:Common Interwiki links]], containing the
pages that, according to the English Wikipedia, have a link in many
languages, but not in a given language. In this update, all languages that
had at least 100 of the 200 most common subjects have been included; this
makes 81 languages, up from 53 in the previous version (about two months
ago).

Here the 20 most linked subjects. India is still most linked, and has in
fact increased its lead by several miles, now (according to the article on
en:) having an article in 234 Wikipedia languages.

1. (1) India 233 (+82)
2. (2) True Jesus Church 161 (+10)
3. (--) 2006 150 (+57)

Bubbling under: Biology, Norway, Poland

And because I love statistics and top lists, here again the top 100 persons
deemed most worthy of a Wikipedia article (according to the existence of
articles in various languages). Order where several had the same number
decided by me (note: this is the number of languages, and thus one higher
than what you see on the list, which shows the number of interwiki links)
