Hello. This is wrong. AboutUs.org is the LARGEST wiki in the world with over 6 million unique visitors a month and has over 10,000,000 articles.

The Wiki Commons list of wiki is bugged because at one point the wiki software will "stop" counting the pages. From my knowledge AboutUs is the largest.

http://www.aboutus.org/Special:Statistics , reads more pages then WikiPedia has itself, but however the numbers on the page had stoped incraement a while back, which I'm sure the AboutUs team will fix eventually.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Statistics reads 2,272,519 articles.

http://wowwiki.com/Special:Statistics 121,858. Also WoWWiki says they have 500,704,886 total page views. So that is basically over 500 million page loads, not counting unique visitors.

If AboutUs has 6 million unique visitors, if they each load five pages each, theres thirty million total page views, also AboutUs is over a year old. So lets count in twenty months of 6 million visitors on an average of five page views each, that is over six hundred million pageviews.

I know for sure, AboutUs is the largest wiki in the world in a database link, and defintly compiting in visitor link.

Hello, the man in the photo here!

My apologies if my comment was incorrect - my original comment was that we're the second largest *English-language* wiki in the world. I had not come across AboutUs.org (though I would point out that we're a single subject wiki).

As our stats page says, the visitor count has not been updated for a while, but we're getting around 3 million uniques a month.

Third-largest ain't bad anyway ;)

The majority of AboutUs.org's content appears to have been automatically created, so if they are in fact the largest wiki on the Internet this seems rather artificial.

I also struggle to believe that they receive more traffic than Wikipedia considering the site seems to offer little value to visitors.

AboutUs pages are generated automatically and are just about websites, with basic company history. So the value of AboutUs can be considered very minimal.

Every website got a contact us page right?
