Let's just say he was begging for it and I got punished for reacting so stupidly...definitely keeps me away from getting into this kind of trouble in the future, though.

The Dutch Wikipedia went through great lengths to become the second largest Wikipedia. They took a very active "quantity over quality" approach. Its depth is only 10% or less than that of the 10 largest Wikipedias. The Swedes seem to be doing the same.

Most Dutch seem to prefer the English language Wikipedia though, especially on non-Dutch subjects. Statistics show the Netherlands has one of the highest proportion of users of the English language Wikipedia, despite having the #2 Wikipedia available.

I also mostly use the English one, but for German specific things the German one is better. Can't say the same for the Romanian, I found in many cases better and richer articles on the English and also on the German site, especially for the Banat and Transylvania part.

I'm surprised to see that the Slovak Wikipedia has just one third more articles than the Slovenian one. I very often see slovenčina when I'm searching for slovenščina (sometimes accidentally click on it) and then there's like one sentence.

What's "Total", btw?

And some technical things, especially road and rail transport articles are in average way better on German Wikipedia.

Articles about Croatian motorways are also much better on EN Wikipedia than HR Wikipedia. German Wikipedia also has fairly good coverage about roads in southeastern Europe. Usually specific projects like that are dependent on a very small group of volunteers.

How is calculated the depth of a Wikipedia? Average lenght of articles?
However stubs aren't that bad, more people are likely to expand an existing article instead of creating a new one.

Road-wise, it.wiki is very detailed about Italian roads but very scarce and outdated about foreign roads.

How can you get back the old Google Maps?
If I chose the "Get old maps" option, I only get it for the current session, when I get to Google Maps again, the new version is enabled...

For road-related articles I mostly use the Dutch wegenwiki.nl :wink:

It's slower, I don't find the easy buttons anymore. Can't see pictures on the whole map. No Streetview thingie to see where there is Streetview.
What are these people thinking?
The same with the stupid Facebook new look.

So do you know how to get the old one back permanently? It's stupid to have to select it every time...

LE: I found it, thank God!

the worst thing is that is uses obviously at elast 50% more resources than previous version, what makes it stucking, irritating and slow.

I still don't know how to make a multiple-destination route on the new Google Maps. And more, I can't get the short link for a map to share, but only the 1000-characters long link

Google street view has just been updated here in England. I checked out my street and nothing is out of the ordinary apart from my cat peering out of the window directly at the camera.
