Milestones

Jump to navigation Jump to 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 Wikimedia_News to see the milestones across all language versions over the years.
