The Esperanto Wikipedia gets an honorable mention today for two things. One is this:
This time around the article count is the result of all human work and no automatic bots.
The article of the week is also exceptional: it's about one of my favourite subjects, the Nagarno-Karabakh Republic (Լեռնային Ղարաբաղի Հանրապետություն). That's the tiny de facto but not de jure country right next to Armenia and officially inside Azerbaijan that was created after the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and the stumbling block in quite a few diplomatic relationships.
And while we're on the subject, Olivier also mentioned on Auxlang a few days ago that the Esperanto magazine La Riverego has an article on Sambahsa in its latest issue:
This is fairly significant considering the age of the magazine. Looking at its list of back issues one can see that the first time it was published was in 1986, well before the internet was ever popular.
