The Hungarian Wikipedia (Magyar Wikipédia) is the Hungarian/Magyar version of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Started on July 8, 2003, this version reached the 200,000 article milestone in September 2011.[1]

History[edit]

The first Wikipedia related to the Hungarian language was created on September 5, 2001 by Larry Sanger, the English language Wikipedia coordinator at the time. He created the address at http://hu.wikipedia.com/. At that time Wikipedia was still running on UseModWiki. For many months there was little Hungarian content, and there were problems with vandalism.

The Hungarian Wikipedia as it is known today was launched by Péter Gervai on July 8, 2003.[2] On this day, the opening page was made available with a Hungarian interface and in Hungarian, at its current address of http://hu.wikipedia.org/. Since its launch it has been growing steadily, moving up in the multilingual ranking from the 34th place in 2003 to 18th place in December 2005[3] and 17th in December 2009,[4] and 19th in September 2011.[1]

On October 31, 2010, the Hungarian Wikipedia contained 179,894 articles with 8,992,153 edits by 38 administrators, 153,779 registered users as well as many unregistered ones.[5]

On 14 January 2013, the Hungarian Wikipedia became the first to enable the provision of interlanguage links via Wikidata.
