The English Wikipedia is fast approaching one million articles. To commemorate this historic milestone, we at the Signpost thought it only fitting to interview the man who helped start it all: Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.

We will be accepting questions for Jimbo here. Anonymous submissions will also be accepted at the Signpost's e-mail address ( From these questions we will pick the best to submit to Jimbo.

Wikinews has expressed an interest in being involved in this interview, so in order to allow the usage of this interview on both projects, all questions submitted must be dual-licensed under both the GNU Free Documentation License and the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 license.

As always, thank you for continuing to read the Signpost.

Million article mark.

WIth a rough estimate it looks like WP will hit 1million articles somewhere between Feb 24th and March 9th. -Ravedave 19:27, 9 February 2006 (UTC)[reply]
