The Cebuano Wikipedia (Cebuano: Wikipedya sa Sinugboanon) is the Cebuano-language edition of Wikipedia. Cebuano is the second most spoken language in the Philippines.[1][2]


The Cebuano Wikipedia, Ang Gawasnong Ensiklopedya, was proposed by Bentong Isles[3] at an indeterminate date on 2005 and was started in June 22, 2005. As of 2011, it was the largest Philippine-language Wikipedia based on number of articles before the Waray-Waray and Tagalog Wikipedias.[4]

As of April 2015, it has about 1,208,900 articles.[5]

The Cebuano Wikipedia has a high ratio[according to whom?] of administrators to total number of active users (4.23%).[citation needed]

On day 16 July 2014 Cebuano Wikipedia has reached 1,000,000 articles.[citation needed]
