This set of pages lists press coverage of Wikipedia that covers or discusses Wikipedia as a project – that is, any aspect of Wikipedia overall, such as its structure, success, information, goals, history, or views on Wikipedia in general, and so on.

Press sources that reference content of a particular Wikipedia article but do not discuss the project itself should be noted on the talk page of the referenced Wikipedia article using the template {{Press}}. Great quotes from articles that enhance the reputation of Wikipedia should be included in our Trophy box.

Note: If there are errors in a news article, then please post the matter to the Wikimedia Communications Committee's talk page. This way, the Wikimedia Foundation can send an official letter to the editor, or request for a correction.

How to add entries to the page[edit]

The current page is at Wikipedia:Press coverage 2020.

If you add an article, cite both the title and the source. Note that if you're listing an article from a traditional press wire service that ran in your local newspaper, it may not have the same title everywhere; be cautious about duplicates.

Add your entry to the end of the page, using Template:Cite news. The template, with the most commonly used parameters, is:

  • {{cite news |first= |last= |authorlink= |coauthors= |title= |url= |work= |publisher= Example News |date= |accessdate=2020-03-31 }}
  • : "Relevant/representative quote here."
