Wikivoyage:Milestones

From Wikivoyage
Jump to: navigation, search


Wikivoyage is a growing concern – as a project and as a travel guide. This page is for recording some milestones in Wikivoyage's history (or future), and for setting up some milestones along the way of where we want to go. It's for gauging our progress, looking forward and looking back.

Figures below refer only to the English version of Wikivoyage. See Multilingual statistics to track totals across all language versions.
