The Chuvash Wikipedia (Chuvash: Чăваш Википедийĕ) is the Chuvash language[1] edition of Wikipedia. It was founded on November 22, 2004. Its 5,000th article was created in January 2007. On August 1, 2014, it passed the 30,000 articles.


Rules in Chuvash Wikipedia are not regarded as being as flexible in disputes as they are on the English project. Many things can be resolved through an arbitration committee which can resolve content disputes, block users or prohibit certain users from editing articles on certain topics. Misuse of an administrator's privileges can also be easily appealed.

The Chuvash Wikipedia accepts fair use content and is generally quite liberal on what content is allowed. One thing which serves as an exception is categorization or listing of people based on their ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. Such categories are generally prohibited unless the category is relevant to the main activity of a person.
