List of largest wikis
Wikipedia's distinction shown on the table between a "conservative" and an "inclusive" number of pages originated in 2002 with the replacement of UseModWiki's spontaneous wiki modes with MediaWiki's embedded namespaces.
For Wikimedia projects:
- The conservative number for the Wikipedia excludes redirects, discussion pages, image description pages, user profile pages, templates, help pages, portals, articles without links to other articles, and pages about Wikipedia. This may not be true for other wikis.
- The conservative number for Wikimedia Commons and Wiktionary excludes "talk" pages, pages about Wikipedia, minimal "stub" pages, redirects, and others that probably don't qualify as content pages.
Lists of Wikipedias by various criteria: edit
- List of Wikipedias by article count, users, file count and depth (Source) (updated daily)
- List of Wikipedias by edits per article and depth (updated daily)
- List of Wikipedias by language group, family, and macrofamily (updated daily)
- List of Wikipedias by speakers per article (updated daily)
- List of Wikipedias by sample of articles and expanded sample of articles (both updated monthly)
- List of largest wikis (not just Wikimedia wikis)
- Wikipedia:Milestone statistics (tracking of major article-count milestones)
- Wikimedia News (announcements and tracking of milestones for all Wikimedia projects)
