"Number of articles"?

I think we should remove that line since, at present, they are mostly just imported from WP. — OvskMendov1 (talk) 04:06, 15 October 2023 (AST)

That actually is the number of articles contained in this encyclopedia regardless of where they originated. Justme 💬 📧 15:30, 12 November 2023 (AST)
I agree with OvskMendov1 that this number is somewhat misleading. Most people who see the statement that Justapedia has 6.5 million articles would assume this number means it has that many unique articles, but the majority of those articles are copies of Wikipedia articles that were imported automatically. It would be much more informative if the main page could list how many articles there are on Justapedia that have been significantly modified from the corresponding Wikipedia article, or that don't have an equivalent Wikipedia article at all. — Tetrapteryx (talk) 20:53, 12 November 2023 (AST)
What you are asking us to do would indeed be a misrepresentation. As I stated above, Justapedia contains that exact number of articles, some we've created, some we've modified, and some we have deleted that reduced the original import count. In order to provide and keep updating the number of articles we have changed would require rewriting the code. Are you technically qualified to do that and if so, are you volunteering to add those changes? You are both welcome to keep a running tab of the articles you created, modified, etc. on your user page or user talk page. Happy editing! Justme 💬 📧 16:08, 13 November 2023 (AST)
