4 november 2004: Swedish Wikitravel now engages 18 registred users dealing with 30 travel-related articles. The progress is slow, but stable.

1 November 2004 : The German version of Wikitravel has been featured in a short but accurate article in the most famous German computer magazine "c't". This has caused a boom on de: over the weekend. Thus, we have reached another milestone. So far, we have 249 articles, a lot of robot-made country stubs included.

26 October 2004 : The French Wikitravel reaches 600 articles with Denis Arnaud making stubs of Kiev, the Russian phrasebook, and the Ukrainian phrasebook. Slightly less stubby is Cabourg.

12 October 2004 : The Romanian Wikitravel, which is nearing 500 articles, has embarked on a quality-improvement campaign aimed at selecting random stubs and turning them into useful articles with content. Some articles which have received a makeover include Köln, Avignon and Shanghai.
