Buddhism Topics listing

This is a way of listing potential articles in Wikipedia that we could import. It doesn't mean we should import them. There are thousands of them and we already have many articles to look over so it's probably not the time to import them right now.

But may be useful for reference and for the future. I made these lists at an early stage when we were thinking of just importing the entire Wikipedia Buddhism project in bulk and then working on it - before we realized the many issues involved in doing that because of the large quantities of false information and controversial material in Wikipedia. Percentage wise, few articles are affected but if you do a bulk import of hundreds of articles there are likely to be a fair few that are seriously in error.

How many articles are there we could import?

For an estimate of the number of pages in the Wikipedia Buddhsim project there are currently 5021 that have their talk pages tagged with the buddhism project template.

Wikipedia says there are 6,060 pages tagged as part of the Buddhism project https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Buddhism/AssessmentBox

That's not including categories - to show them all see

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:WikiProject_Buddhism&limit=6000 (takes a while for the page to load) https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:WikiProject_Buddhism&limit=5000&from=39429234&back=0

Another way to approach this is to look at the wanted pages in this wiki:

There are over 20,500 "wanted pages" in this wiki (not including templates) - many could be copied over from Wikipedia - but will include many that don't exist in Wikipedia either. Many of these wanted pages however are probably not Buddhism project articles.
