  • Wikinews ends the year with approximately 217,892 articles in 33 languages, which constitutes a 5% increase in articles over the past year.
  • Wikiversity ends the year with approximately 89,008 learning modules in 58 languages (comprising 86,731 modules in 15 separate language wikis and an additional 2,277 modules in 43 languages at the Wikiversity Beta), which constitutes a 12% increase in learning modules over the past year.

  • Wikimedia Commons ends the year with approximately 35,789,717 media files and 124,327 gallery pages, which constitutes a 20% increase in media files and a 2% increase in gallery pages over the past year.
  • Wikispecies ends the year with approximately 499,092 content pages, which constitutes a 12% increase in content pages over the past year.

  • Wikimedia Incubator ends the year with approximately 101,791 content pages across 638 test wikis in 516 different languages (including any test wikis that have been opened but are currently empty), which constitutes a 1% increase in content pages (as well as 15 more test wikis and 11 more languages) over the past year.
  • There were 5 new main content wikis created in 2016 (Wikipedias for Adyghe, Jamaican Patois/Creole, Tulu, and Livvi-Karelian, as well as the Finnish Wikivoyage), two more than the three created in 2015.
Note: The article counts listed above for the main content projects split into different languages (Wikipedia through Wikivoyage) are based on stats collected between around 02:00 UTC on 2016-12-31 and 11:00 UTC on 2017-01-01 and posted to the pages tracking statistics for the various projects here at Meta. The counts for the multilingual projects (Commons through Incubator) are based on stats collected between around 03:45 UTC on 2016-12-31 and 03:45 UTC on 2017-01-01 (not posted anywhere). In all cases, whenever possible, estimates of the counts at 00:00 UTC on 2017-01-01 were obtained by interpolating between count totals reported before and after that time. All counts are based on what MediaWiki sees as constituting an article, as reflected at each wiki's Special:Statistics page. Language counts include closed wikis and count "Simple English" as a separate language when such a wiki exists within a project.

Older news[edit]

For older news items, see the archive at Wikimedia News/2016. Archives for earlier years are listed at the top of this page.

Projects by number of content pages[edit]

The tables below are arranged chronologically by the original launch dates of the major content projects, within two main groups: "interlingual" projects (different wiki for each language) followed by "multilingual" projects (all languages on the same wiki). The older Wikimedia projects (such as Wikipedia) tend to be larger than the newer ones, but note that these tables are not arranged by number of sub-wikis nor by total article count.

For the interlingual projects, within each table the individual language editions are arranged by milestone level, and then chronologically by the date the milestones were first reached.

Note: You can go directly to the table for Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, Wikiquotes, Wikibooks, Wikisources, Wikinews, Wikiversities, Wikivoyages, Wikimedia Commons, Wikispecies, or Wikidata.
