Volapük Wikipedia Shenanigans

Another blogger noticed the large number of articles in the Volapuk Wikipedia and decided to find out what Volapük is, and how it got so many articles. His/her conclusion:

"The administrator of the Volapük Wikipedia thought that he `could try to get some new people interested in learning the language and contributing by doing something a little crazy -- like increasing the size of the Volapük wikipedia as fast as I could, with Python programs for copying and pasting information onto pre-translated templates'..."

"...the strategy to increase exponentially the amount of Wikipedia articles in Volapük proves once again the ease with which information can be manipulated there..."


Those tricky Volapükists! They are lots of fun at parties because you never know what they'll do next.
