Older news

For older news items, see the 2016 archive or the archives for earlier years listed at the top of this page.

Projects by number of content pages

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 (across all languages).

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 Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikinews, Wikiversity, Wikivoyage, Wikimedia Commons, Wikispecies, or Wikidata.
