Thank you for the information.

I hope these flooding requests are not  coming from my 
http://ausleuchtung.ch/geo_wiki/ . It still works by finding Wikipedia 
articles on the map by coordinates from the articles themselves via the 
MediaWIki API, but it does not work today by finding articles via OSM 
/wikipedia/, /wikidata/, and /wikimedia_commons/ tags, as Overpass API 
is not answering. And I am getting e-mails about it.

This web-application works for all language versions of Wikipedia, not 
only major languages, but all for which functions the MediaWIki API.
