Wikidata reached a billion edits
As of today, Wikidata has reached a billion edits - 1,000,000,000.
This makes it the first Wikimedia project that has reached that number, and possibly the first wiki ever to have reached so many edits. Given that Wikidata was launched less than seven years ago, this means an average edit rate of 4-5 edits per second.
The billionth edit is the creation of an item for a 2006 physics article written in Chinese.
Congratulations to the community! This is a tremendous success.
In the beginning
