List of articles every Wikipedia should have

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
(Redirected from 1000 articles)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Important note: Since this list is full, it is important that you discuss any changes (adds or deletes) on the discussion for this list first. If you add an entry at this point, it will be necessary to justify deleting something else.

There are a growing number of Wikipedia projects, some very active and others quite stagnant. This list is intended as a guideline for those projects so that they will contain a minimum amount of basic, useful information. This way, people will be encouraged to use these projects and help in their growth. The articles should contain at least basic information on the topics they describe, thus providing a starting point for growth besides being a useful reference for the readers.

In addition to simply listing the articles, this project hopes to eventually create easily translatable versions of these articles, possibly containing core information at simple:Wikipedia:List of articles all languages should have. Until then, links to corresponding Wikidata objects are provided, containing links to articles in various Wikipedias which can be used as a translatable resource.

Top-priority entries, which are deemed especially necessary for any Wikipedia to have, are marked in bold; like the list itself, these selections should not be viewed as dictating how important certain topics are, but only as a utility for smaller Wikipedias to start from.

This list is also used to obtain the List of Wikipedias by sample of articles. Articles which are absent from one wikipedia are shown in List of Wikipedias by sample of articles/Absent Articles.

This list is limited to 1000 articles, but a much larger list is available at List of articles every Wikipedia should have/Expanded.

Five versions from the history of this page can be found at Version 1.0 (14 August 2006), Version 1.1 (15 November 2008), Version 1.2 (3 February 2010), Version 1.3 (24 June 2012) and Version 1.4 (1 June 2014).

Thanks to Wikidata it's also possible to list the top 1000 most translated (linked) pages in some languages, at Wikidata Terminator; or even compare any two wikis, with Not in the other language.

How to use this list[edit]

There are several different ways to use this list. The first is to translate it into the language of your Wikipedia and see whether you have articles on all of these topics. The topics here are linked to corresponding items in the Wikidata project. If your Wikipedia is missing an article, or if you are starting out with a new language, you may want to translate these basic articles from a different language that you are familiar with (for example, English). Language links to Wikipedias in which the topic is covered are provided at the bottom of each Wikidata item page.
