Wiki99 is a project to develop about 99 Wikipedia articles in various fields of information, then translate those articles into as many other languages as possible. Any one interested in any sort of information may propose their own "Wiki99" and list it on this page.

The reason for compiling lists is that when there are Wikipedia editing events, people often ask, "What articles should I edit?" When these lists are available for a topic, then these articles become standing suggestions for development and perpetual monitoring. When the sets of articles are well developed, they become good examples for collections of information that Wikipedia provides.

How to create a Wiki99 list[edit]

  1. Choose any field of study
  2. Identify the 99 most important concepts in that field of study
  3. List Wikipedia articles covering those 99 topics
  4. Advertise the existence of the list to others who would discuss it
  5. Collectively edit and change the list to get consensus for what should be included
  6. 99 articles is not a limit - feel free to use 80, 100, 115, or any number you like. This is wiki so do as you please. The popular request is for lists of about 100.
