Wikibooks. Growth of the eight largest Wikibooks sites (by language), July 2003–Jan 2010 Wikibooks (previously called Wikimedia Free Textbook Project and Wikimedia-Textbooks) is a wiki based Wikimedia project hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation for the creation of free content textbooks and annotated texts that anyone can edit.


In April 2010, Alexa ranked as the 2,462nd most popular web site in the world. estimates that Wikibooks had 576,838 unique visitors, and Quantcast estimates 646,500 unique visitors from the United States in that month.[2][3] History[edit] The domain was registered on July 19, 2003 (2003-07-19),[4] and launched in response to a request made by Wikipedia contributor Karl Wick for a project to host and build free textbooks on subjects such as organic chemistry and physics.

Wikijunior[edit] Wikijunior is a subproject of Wikibooks that specializes in books for children. Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia logo mosaic, created to commemorate the one millionth file at Wikimedia Commons Featured picture nominations per month (2004 – 2012) Wikimedia Commons (or simply Commons) is an online repository of free-use images, sound, and other media files.[2] It is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation.

Wikimedia Commons

Files from Wikimedia Commons can be used across all Wikimedia projects[3] in all languages, including Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikivoyage, Wikispecies, Wikisource, and Wikinews, or downloaded for offsite use. The repository contains over 20 million media files.[4] In July 2013, the number of edits on Commons reached 100,000,000.[5] Wikimedia Commons. Wikinews. Early years[edit] The beta version logo, used until February 13, 2005 The first[5] recorded proposal of a Wikimedia news site was a two-line anonymous post on January 5, 2003, on Wikipedia community's Meta-Wiki.[6] Daniel Alston, who edited Wikipedia as Fonzy,[7] claimed to have been the one who posted it.[5][8] The proposal was then further developed by German freelance journalist, software developer and author Erik Möller.[5] Early opposition from long-time Wikipedia contributors, many of them pointing out the existence of Wikipedia's own news summaries, gave way to detailed discussions and proposals about how it could be implemented as a new project of the Wikimedia Foundation.


In November 2004, a demonstration wiki was established to show how such a collaborative news site might work. A month later, December 2004, the site was moved out of the "demo" stage and into the beta stage. A German language edition was launched at the same time. Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For Wikipedia's non-encyclopedic visitor introduction, see Wikipedia:About.

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wikipedia ( i/ˌwɪkɨˈpiːdiə/ or i/ˌwɪkiˈpiːdiə/ WIK-i-PEE-dee-ə) is a free-access, free content Internet encyclopedia, supported and hosted by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Those who can access the site can edit most of its articles. Editors are expected to follow the website's rules.[6] Wikipedia is ranked among the ten most popular websites[5] and constitutes the Internet's largest and most popular general reference work.[7][8][9] Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger launched Wikipedia on January 15, 2001. Unusual articles. This page is for Wikipedians to list articles that seem unusual.

These articles are valuable contributions to the encyclopedia, but are a bit odd, whimsical, or something you would not expect to find in Encyclopædia Britannica. We should take special care to meet the highest standards of an encyclopedia with these articles lest they make Wikipedia appear idiosyncratic.

If you wish to add articles to this list, the article in question should preferably meet one or more of these criteria: This definition is not precise. Some articles may still be considered unusual even if they do not fit these guidelines. To keep the list of interest to readers, each entry on this list should be an article on its own (not merely a section in a less unusual article) and of decent quality, in large meeting Wikipedia's manual of style.

Wikiquote. Wikiquote is one of a family of wiki-based projects run by the Wikimedia Foundation, running on MediaWiki software.


Based on an idea by Daniel Alston and implemented by Brion Vibber, the goal of the project is to produce collaboratively a vast reference of quotations from prominent people, books, films and proverbs, and to give details about them with appropriate attribution. Though there are many online collections of quotations, Wikiquote is distinguished by being among the few that provide an opportunity for visitors to contribute.[2] Wikiquote pages are cross-linked to articles about the notable personalities on Wikipedia.[3] Initially, the project was created solely in English; a later expansion to include additional languages was started in July 2004.

Wikisource. Wikisource is an online digital library of free content textual sources on a wiki, operated by the Wikimedia Foundation.


Its aims are to host all forms of free text, in many languages, and translations. Originally conceived as an archive to store useful or important historical texts, (its first text was the Déclaration universelle des Droits de l'Homme), it has expanded to become a general-content library. The project officially began in November 24, 2003 under the name Project Sourceberg.

The name Wikisource was adopted later that year and it received its own domain name seven months later. The project has come under criticism for lack of reliability but it is also cited by organisations such as the National Archives and Records Administration.[3] The project holds works that are either in the public domain or freely licenced; professionally published works or historical source documents, not vanity products; and are verifiable. Wikispecies. Wikispecies is a wiki-based online project supported by the Wikimedia Foundation.


Its aim is to create a comprehensive free content catalogue of all species and is directed at scientists, rather than at the general public. Jimmy Wales—chairman emeritus of the Wikimedia Foundation—stated that editors are not required to fax in their degrees, but that submissions will have to pass muster with a technical audience.[1][2] Wikispecies is available under the GNU Free Documentation License and CC-BY-SA 3.0. Started in September 2004, with biologists across the world invited to contribute,[3] the project had grown a framework encompassing the Linnaean taxonomy with links to Wikipedia articles on individual species by April 2005.[2] History[edit] Benedikt Mandl co-ordinated the efforts of several people who are interested in getting involved with the project and contacted potential supporters in early summer 2004.

Wikiversity. Wikiversity is a Wikimedia Foundation project[2][3] that supports learning communities, their learning materials, and resulting activities.


It differs from more structured projects such as Wikipedia in that it instead offers a series of tutorials, or courses, for the fostering of learning, rather than formal content. History[edit] Wikiversity's beta phase officially began on August 15, 2006, with the English language Wikiversity. Wikiversity. Wiktionary. Wiktionary (a blend of the words wiki and dictionary) is a multilingual, web-based project to create a free content dictionary of all words in all languages.


It is available in 158 languages and in Simple English. Like its sister project Wikipedia, Wiktionary is run by the Wikimedia Foundation, and is written collaboratively by volunteers, dubbed "Wiktionarians". Its wiki software, MediaWiki, allows almost anyone with access to the website to create and edit entries. Because Wiktionary is not limited by print space considerations, most of Wiktionary's language editions provide definitions and translations of words from many languages, and some editions offer additional information typically found in thesauri and lexicons.
