Donation currencies added

Fundraising committee member and former Chief Financial Officer Daniel Mayer announced the addition of 10 new currencies to the list of currencies accepted in the PayPal donation box for the Wikimedia Foundation. The new currencies, ranging from Hong Kong dollars to Polish złotys, brings the total number of currencies accepted to 16.


Chief Technical Officer Brion Vibber announced the creation of four new Wikis this week: the Spanish Wikiversity, Bosnian Wikinews, Tajik Wikibooks, and the Macedonian Wikisource. In addition, the Wikimania 2007 wiki, designed for Wikimania 2007 Taipei, was also created. The Taipei bidding team, following the creation of the wiki, which will serve as the place for planning and coordination, also released the first Team Bulletin on Sunday. The regular updates will serve to inform interested Wikimedians of news, announcements, and the progress of the planning for Wikimedia 2007.

Hindi Wikipedia has reached 3,000 articles
It is a good news. It is a fine tribute to Jimmy's concerns expressed at Bangalore on 29th September: Indian Language Wikipedia. I hope that Wikipedia in Hindi, a language spoken by about 480 million people and perhaps understood by 800 million people shall become still better and larger wikipedia. --Bhadani 01:10, 27 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]
