Indeed. The data strongly points to sublinear growth. The English Wikipedia edit rate has been declining since about January 2007, and is now only 67% of the rate at that time. A linear regression on the edit rate from that time predicts death of the project at around 2030. Meanwhile, WMF revenue has gone from 2.4M (2006/2007) to 50.4M (2012/2013). I don't think backend scaling is really a problem we have anymore. -- Tim Starling _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
