The Azerbaijani Wikipedia (Azerbaijani: Azərbaycanca Vikipediya; آذربایجانجا ویکیپدیا) is a Wikipedia in Azerbaijani language (the editing interface and the main page have been temporarily accessible via South Azerbaijani subtitles), launched in January 2002. As of 30 November 2010 it had 42,518 articles (size 4, including 20 featured articles) and 14,523 uploaded files in its content, as well as 23,766 registered users (including seven administrators and two bureaucrats). The editorial process is being supported by forty bots.
Within the first two years of its existence the article number in Azerbaijani Wikipedia reached 3,000. As of November 2010 the local list of requested articles contains ten entries (seven biographical, two scientific and one unspecified). Pending November 2010 translation requests comprise three English and three Turkish entries.
The categorization is maintained through nine topic categories: culture, geography, history, life, mathematics, nature, science, society and technology. Hidden categories embrace 111 entries. The backlog category contains 14 subcategories.
There are also fourteen portals about architecture, biology, chemistry, history, Islam, geography, literature, medicine, philosophy, Azerbaijani cinema, Azerbaijani military, as well as country-specific ones about Georgia, Turkey and Azerbaijan itself.
Azerbaijan Wikipedia is constantly increasing its number of articles. However, many articles are in the form of stubs, with some having many grammatical and syntactical mistakes.
- 29 July 2011 – 75 000 articles (5 819 of them on Arabic alphabet). 75 000 article صفیخانلو (on Arabic alphabet) was written by user E THP.
The first meetup was held in Baku on 6 December 2009. The event was organized in order to establish relations of friendship and familiarity between Wikipedians and a number of other issues – including technical problems and prospects for future development.
Recently in order to solve the problems, an emergency meeting was organized on 23 October 2010 in Shaki. About 9 users participated in it.
