The German Wikipedia is the German-language edition of Wikipedia, a free and publicly editable online encyclopedia. Founded in March 2001, it is the second-oldest, after the English Wikipedia, with 2,291,320 articles, at present the fourth-largest edition of Wikipedia by number of articles, behind the English Wikipedia and the bot-generated Swedish Wikipedia and Cebuano Wikipedia, it has the second-largest number of over 260,000 disambiguation pages. On 7 November 2011, it became the second edition of Wikipedia, after the English edition, to exceed 100 million page edits. On 21 March 2019 the German Wikipedia went offline to inform users about the situation of the European Union's copyright law reformation, the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, which will be voted on in the European Parliament on 27 March 2019. Opponents of the reformation are concerned about the restriction of fundamental rights including a free press and the freedom of speech and arts; the German edition of Wikipedia was the first non-English Wikipedia subdomain, was named deutsche.wikipedia.com.
Its creation was announced by Jimmy Wales on 16 March 2001. One of the earliest snapshots of the home page, dated 21 March 2001, can be seen at the Wayback Machine site. Aside from the home page, creation of articles in the German Wikipedia started as early as April 2001 with translations of Nupedia articles; the earliest article still available on Wikipedia's site is Polymerase-Kettenreaktion, dated May 2001. Andrew Lih wrote that the hacker culture in Germany and the verein concept solidified the German Wikipedia's culture; the geography of Europe facilitated face-to-face meetups among German Wikipedians. On 27 December 2009, the German Wikipedia edition exceeded 1,000,000 articles, becoming the first edition after the English-language Wikipedia to do so; the millionth article was Ernie Wasson. In November 2008, 90% of the edition's articles had more than 512 bytes, 49% had more than 2 kilobytes, the average article size was 3,476 bytes. In the middle of 2009 this edition had nearly 250,000 biographies and in December 2006 more than 48,500 disambiguations.
Compared to the English Wikipedia, the German edition tends to be more selective in its coverage rejecting small stubs, articles about individual fictional characters and similar materials. Instead, there is one article about all the characters from a specific fictional setting only when the setting is considered important enough. A dedicated article about a single fictional entity exists only if the character in question has a significant impact on popular culture. Andrew Lih wrote that German Wikipedia users believe that "having no article at all is better than a bad article." Therefore, growth on the German Wikipedia leveled before it did for the English Wikipedia, with accelerating growth in article count shifting to constant growth in mid-2006. The number of users signing up for accounts began to decline in 2007 through 2008; the January 2005, Google Zeitgeist announced that "Wikipedia" was the eighth most-searched query on Google.de. In February 2005, Wikipedia reached third place behind Valentine's Day.
In June 2005, Wikipedia ranked first. Separate Wikipedias have been created for several other varieties of German, including Alemannic German, Pennsylvania German, Low German and Bavarian; these however, have less popularity than the German Wikipedia. The German Wikipedia is different from the English Wikipedia in a number of aspects. Compared to the English Wikipedia, different criteria of encyclopedic notability are expressed through the judgments of the editors for deciding if an article about a topic should be allowed; the criteria for notability are more specific, each field has its own specific guidelines. There are no fair use provisions. Images and other media that are accepted on the English Wikipedia as fair use may not be suitable for the German Wikipedia. However, the threshold of originality for works of applied art is set much higher, which allows the use of company logos and similar icons, too; the use of scholarly sources, in preference over journalistic and other types of sources, is more encouraged.
The German Verifiability guideline classifies scholarly sources as inherently more reliable than non-academic sources. In September 2005, Erik Möller voiced concern that "long term page protection is used excessively on the German Wikipedia": on 14 September 2005, 253 pages were protected for more than two weeks; this was the highest number of such blocks of all Wikipedias. As of May 2008, the German Wikipedia still had the highest percentage of semi-protected articles - 0.281% - among the ten largest Wikipedias, but with respect to the fraction of protected articles it ranks fourth, behind the Japanese and English Wikipedias. Vandalism and other abuse is handled in a less formal way. Vandals may get blocked on their first edit and without warning if their edit shows lack of interest for actual encyclopaedic work; this is true if the added text includes unlawful statements, such as holocaust denial. The Checkuser function is used to determine multiple accounts, as "suspicious" accounts are block
Hebrew Wikipedia is the Hebrew language edition of Wikipedia. This edition was started on 11 May 2001 and contains more than 241,000 articles as of April 2019. July 8, 2003: The Hebrew edition of Wikipedia was launched. October 25, 2003: The 1,000th article was written. July 22, 2004: The first meeting of Hebrew Wikipedians took place in Tel Aviv, Israel. September 10, 2004: The 10,000th article was written. September 20, 2004: The Hebrew version of the Flag of Kazakhstan article became the one millionth article created in all Wikipedias. December 24, 2006: The 50,000th article was written. January 10, 2010: The 100,000th article was written. August 29, 2013: The 150,000th article was written. December 28, 2016: The 200,000th article was written. Hebrew Wikipedia features several organized article writing projects, among them Wikitort - an academic project to write original articles about tort law, PhysiWiki - a project to write and improve articles about Physics with the cooperation of Weizmann Institute of Science, ongoing academic projects.
Another major topic is the History of Israel. In 2006, the Elef Millim project was launched to provide Wikipedia with free images. Groups of Wikipedians meet for field trips around the country to take pictures of Israeli sites. Hebrew spelling is a matter of debate. Since the standards published by the Academy of the Hebrew Language are not always meticulously followed in common usage, the Hebrew Wikipedia community decides on problematic cases of spelling through discussion and polls to ensure consistency; when technically possible, spelling decisions are periodically enforced using automatic replacement by a bot. Hebrew Wikipedia's requirements for notability standards are strict. Hebrew Wikipedia organizes yearly competitions, sometimes with the assistance of the Wikimedia foundation, as well as social gatherings and picnics. On the occasion of the 100,000 articles milestone, the Science and Technology Committee of the Knesset invited Wikipedia contributors and users to the 2 February 2010 morning meeting, to join in a debate about Wikipedia and other open-source resources.
Some Wikipedia contributors at the meeting criticized "the lack of government cooperation with their efforts to compile a free online Hebrew-language encyclopedia," as well as sharing complaints from Wikipedia editors abroad that since the Israel Defense Forces does not release photos for free redistribution on the Internet, the sole source of available pictures for entries such as the Gaza War and the 2006 Lebanon War are the Palestinians. In July 2006, Hebrew Wikipedia had one of the highest number of bytes per article, the highest of all editions on Wikipedia with over 20,000 articles. Whereas the English Wikipedia requires a general consensus for deleting articles, the Hebrew Wikipedia has adopted a policy of deletion upon a 55% majority, with no minimum number of votes. In these votes, only registered users with one month seniority and at least 100 edits in the article, category or template namespaces in the past 90 days can vote. Compared to English Wikipedia, Hebrew Wikipedia is more conservative with respect to content.
The inclusion criteria are detailed under the "guidelines" page. Some examples: Articles on porn movies will be deleted unless they became cultural symbols. Articles on porn stars will be deleted. A book has to meet one of these four criteria: published by a known publisher, sold 10,000 copies, won a prize, or received good reviews. Writers have to write at least two books to be notable as writers. Singers and bands must have an album to their credit. Articles on student films are deleted unless they win first prize in a film festival or were screened in mainstream cinemas. List articles are rare. In particular, lists of TV series episodes are not accepted as part of the articles on the series. Other controversial topics are articles of minor educational institutions.

Creative Commons is an American non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon and to share. The organization has released several copyright-licenses, known as Creative Commons licenses, free of charge to the public; these licenses allow creators to communicate which rights they reserve and which rights they waive for the benefit of recipients or other creators. An easy-to-understand one-page explanation of rights, with associated visual symbols, explains the specifics of each Creative Commons license. Creative Commons licenses are based upon it, they replace individual negotiations for specific rights between copyright owner and licensee, which are necessary under an "all rights reserved" copyright management, with a "some rights reserved" management employing standardized licenses for re-use cases where no commercial compensation is sought by the copyright owner. The result is an agile, low-overhead and low-cost copyright-management regime, benefiting both copyright owners and licensees.
The organization was founded in 2001 by Lawrence Lessig, Hal Abelson, Eric Eldred with the support of Center for the Public Domain. The first article in a general interest publication about Creative Commons, written by Hal Plotkin, was published in February 2002; the first set of copyright licenses was released in December 2002. The founding management team that developed the licenses and built the Creative Commons infrastructure as we know it today included Molly Shaffer Van Houweling, Glenn Otis Brown, Neeru Paharia, Ben Adida. In 2002 the Open Content Project, a 1998 precursor project by David A. Wiley, announced the Creative Commons as successor project and Wiley joined as CC director. Aaron Swartz played a role in the early stages of Creative Commons; as of May 2018 there were an estimated 1.4 billion works licensed under the various Creative Commons licenses. Wikipedia uses one of these licenses; as of May 2018, Flickr alone hosts over 415 million Creative Commons licensed photos. Creative Commons is governed by a board of directors.
Their licenses have been embraced by many as a way for creators to take control of how they choose to share their copyrighted works. Creative Commons has been described as being at the forefront of the copyleft movement, which seeks to support the building of a richer public domain by providing an alternative to the automatic "all rights reserved" copyright, has been dubbed "some rights reserved". David Berry and Giles Moss have credited Creative Commons with generating interest in the issue of intellectual property and contributing to the re-thinking of the role of the "commons" in the "information age". Beyond that, Creative Commons has provided "institutional and legal support for individuals and groups wishing to experiment and communicate with culture more freely."Creative Commons attempts to counter what Lawrence Lessig, founder of Creative Commons, considers to be a dominant and restrictive permission culture. Lessig describes this as "a culture in which creators get to create only with the permission of the powerful, or of creators from the past."
Lessig maintains that modern culture is dominated by traditional content distributors in order to maintain and strengthen their monopolies on cultural products such as popular music and popular cinema, that Creative Commons can provide alternatives to these restrictions. Until April 2018 Creative Commons had over 100 affiliates working in over 75 jurisdictions to support and promote CC activities around the world. In 2018 this affiliate network has been restructured into a network organisation; the network no longer relies on affiliate organisation but on individual membership organised in Chapter. Creative Commons Japan is the affiliated network of Creative Commons in Japan. In 2003, the International University GLOCOM hold a meeting for the CC Japan preparing. In March 2004, CC Japan was initiated by that University, that, the second CC created among the world. In March 2006, the CC Japan be in motion. In the same year of March, the CC founder Lawrence Lessig came to Japan to be one of the main holder of the open ceremony.
Within same year of May to June, different international events hold in Japan which include iSummit 06 and the first to third round CCJP held. In 2007 of February, ICC x ClipLife 15 sec CM open. In June, iSummit 07 held on. After that month, the fourth CCJP held on. In the 25/7/2007, Tokyo approve Nobuhiro Nakayamato become the NGO chairman of CCJP. In 2008, Taipie ACIA join CCJP; the main theme music which chose by CCJP announced. In 2009, INTO INFINITY shown in Sapporo. I-phone held the shows with Audio Visual Mixer for INTO INFINITY. 2012, the 10 anniversary ceremony held on Japan. 2015, the renew version of CCJP overt. Creative Commons Japan Zero overt. Creative Commons Korea is the affiliated network of Creative Commons in South Korea. In March 2005, CC Korea was initiated by Jongsoo Yoon, a Presiding Judge of Incheon District Court, as a project of Korea Association for Infomedia Law; the major Korean portal sites, including Daum and Naver, have been participating in the use of Creative Commons licences.
In January 2009, the Creative Commons Korea Association was founded as a non-profit incorporated association. Since CC Korea has been promoting the liberal and open culture of creation as well as leading the diffusion of Creative Common in the country.

The Ukrainian Wikipedia is the Ukrainian language edition of the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia. The first article was written on January 30, 2004. Ukrainian Wikipedia has 898,822 articles and is the 16th largest Wikipedia edition. In the Ukrainian Wikipedia one area of knowledge has been covered to an extent greater than all other Wikipedias — the subject of mining, due to the considerable contribution by one person, Volodymyr Biletsky, a professor at Donetsk National Technical University. Using as a basis his published Encyclopedia of Mining, Biletsky has contributed over 10,000 articles on the subject to Ukrainian Wikipedia. In 2013 the Institute of History of Ukraine at the National Academy of Science gave permission to the Ukrainian Wikipedia to use the digital version of the Encyclopedia of Ukraine's History, published online; the Higher School Academy of Science and Forest Engineering allowed Wikipedia to use their information resources. One of the areas where activity is notable is in Wiki Loves Monuments project, an annual international photo contest focused on cultural and historical monuments.
Ukrainian Wikipedians were ranked 4th among 36 participating countries for the number of uploads of images as part of this project in 2012. In 2014 Ukrainian Wikipedians were winners. A significant number of articles in Ukrainian Wikipedia relate to the history of the development of the Ukrainian language. A study in August 2012 counted over 8,000 articles mentioning the term "Ukrainian language" and over 1,400 articles with the term "history of Ukrainian language" and concluded that collectively represented a good coverage of its history and concepts. Articles about the history of Ukrainian language included articles about early publications like bibles printed in Ukrainian, grammar books, changes in phonetics through time, Ukrainian calligraphy, history of Ukrainian language within the context of the Soviet Union and the banning of Ukrainian language by the Russian Government. At the end of 2012 Ukrainian Wikipedia contained over 1,500 articles relating to Ukrainian history; as of June 2012 the Ukrainian Wikipedia contained 52 specific articles about Ukrainian astronomers and astronomo-geodesists, which have now been collated into a published book.
On January 21, 2014, the Ukrainian Wikipedia community decided to block access to the portal every day between 4:00 and 4:30 PM in protest of "dictatorship laws" in Ukraine, that restrict the freedom of speech and pose a threat to the portal. On October 1, 2005, Ukrainian Wikipedia reached the 20,000-article mark; the milestone of 250,000 articles was reached on 21 December 2010, 860,000 people had viewed 30 million articles in that month alone. By 2012, with over 400,000 articles and 100 million words, the Ukrainian Wikipedia many times over had content larger than the largest printed encyclopedia at that time — the Ukrainian Soviet Encyclopedia; as of April 2019, the Ukrainian Wikipedia has 898822 articles and nearly 2.5 million visitors every day. The Ukrainian Wikipedia at that time was on the 16th place in the ranking of the World's Wikipedias.

The Croatian Wikipedia is the Croatian version of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, started on February 16, 2003. This version has 204,566 articles and a total of 5.23 million edits have been made. It has 216,762 registered user accounts, out of which 574 are active, the number of administrators is 16. In late 2013, the Croatian Wikipedia received attention from international media for promoting a fascist worldview as well as bias against Serbs of Croatia and anti-LGBT propaganda by the means of historical revisionism and by negating or diluting the severity of crimes committed by the Ustaše regime. Apart from whitewashing the crimes and vices of WW2-era criminals, the same is done for contemporary Croatian politicians and public figures. Throughout 2014, fewer than two dozen editors made more than 100 edits a month. Over 600 articles are ranked as featured. In a study by Kubelka and Šoštarić from 2011, the reliability of the Croatian Wikipedia was compared to the Croatian Encyclopedia - the Croatian national encyclopedia.
Twenty-four reviewers, experts in specific fields, analyzed a representative selection of articles according to the parameters of informativeness, accuracy of presented information, sufficiency and objectivity. Articles were analyzed in 11 thematic categories: culture. Articles were sorted into categories using machine learning techniques, feature weight statistics were calculated using tf–idf. A total of 500 articles in 250 pairs were randomly chosen and sorted into categories to serve as representative samples. In both samples facts were manually enumerated - 3015 from the Croatian Encyclopedia and 3315 from Croatian Wikipedia. Comparison for factual accuracy showed that for every error in the Croatian Encyclopedia 2.25 errors were found in Croatian Wikipedia. Analysis by individual categories showed that most errors in Croatian Wikipedia were in the philosophy category, where on average two errors in ten articles were found; the only category where the Croatian Encyclopedia had more errors was natural sciences, where the ratio was 1.25:0.75 in favor of Croatian Wikipedia.
Of those factual errors, the ratio was 21:12 for major errors, 34:23 for minor errors. The overall ratio for minor factual errors was thus lower, the only exception being the society and social sciences category, where the minor error ratio was 3:1; the reliability analysis for Croatian Wikipedia indicated that 74% of articles were error-free, 11% had minor errors. Major factual errors were found in 5% of articles, while 4% of articles had both major and minor errors. Overall 85% of articles were deemed "satisfactory", while in comparison 92% of articles in the Croatian Encyclopedia achieved the same rating. Forty percent of articles in Croatian Wikipedia were assessed as sufficiently informative, as opposed to sixty-two percent of articles in the Croatian Encyclopedia. Sixteen percent of Croatian Wikipedia articles were assessed as "insufficiently informative", as opposed to five percent of articles from the Croatian Encyclopedia; the criterion of objectivity measured the neutral point of view in articles.
Two percent of Croatian Wikipedia articles were assessed as non-neutral, as opposed to zero in the Croatian Encyclopedia. According to their subjective preference, reviewers chose 53% of articles in the Croatian Encyclopedia as their preferred article version, while only 19.5% of Wikipedia articles were preferred, with 27% of articles being assessed as equal in quality. In September 2013, complaints about right-wing bias of administrators and editors on the Croatian Wikipedia began to receive attention from the media, following the launch of a Facebook page titled Razotkrivanje sramotne hr.wikipedije, created with the intent of bringing attention to the issues. Reported examples of bias include historical revisionism such as watering-down and denial of the crimes committed by the Ustashe regime, equating anti-fascism with forms of totalitarianism. Other issues included the bias against Serbs of the LGBT population. Editors who tried to remove the biased sections were being harassed by administrators and received permanent blocks under various pretexts.
The issue was reported by Croatia's daily Jutarnji list and made its print edition's front page on 11 September 2013. Two days Croatia's Minister of Science and Sports, Željko Jovanović, called for pupils and students in Croatia to avoid using the Croatian Wikipedia. In an interview given to Novi list, Jovanović said that "the idea of openness and relevance as a knowledge source that Wikipedia could and should represent has been discredited – which, for certain, has never been the goal of Wikipedia's creators nor the huge number of people around the world who share their knowledge and time using that medium. Croatian pupils and students have been wronged by this, so we have to warn them that a large part of the content of the Croatian version of Wikipedia is not only dubious but obvious forgeries, therefore we invite them to use more reliable sources of information, which include Wikipedia in English and in other major languages of the world." Jovanović has comment
The Serbian Wikipedia is the Serbian-language version of the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia. Created on 16 February 2003, it reached its 100,000th article on 20 November 2009 before getting to another milestone with the 200,000th article on 6 July 2013, another milestone with the 500,000th article on 13 January 2018, it has 223,604 registered users and about 619,000 articles, making it the largest Wikipedia written in a South Slavic language and the 18th largest Wikipedia overall. The Serbian Wikipedia uses ZhengZhu's character mapping program to convert between Cyrillic and Latin scripts. Serbian Wikipedia was created on 16 February 2003 along with the Croatian Wikipedia when both split off from the joint Serbo-Croatian Wikipedia; the main page was translated from English into Serbian on 22 April 2003 by an unknown user with IP address 22.214.171.124, user Nikola Smolenski finished the translation on 24 May. During September 2003, Smolenski prepared the main page along with creating some basic article stubs.
In the October 2003 issue of the Serbian IT magazine Svet kompjutera his article about wikis and Wikipedia got published, leading to a surge of new users, both registered and anonymous. Around the same time, Smolenski translated the user interface page into Serbian; the Serbian language uses two alphabets and Latin. It has two official accents: Ekavian and Ijekavian. Combining the scripts and accents give four written variants; when the Serbian Wikipedia was founded, it used only the Cyrillic alphabet, both standard dialects. However, since both alphabets are used by Serbian native speakers, an effort began to enable the parallel usage of both Cyrillic and Latin alphabets; the first attempt was to use a bot for dynamic transliteration of every article. About 1,000 articles were transliterated before the action was stopped due to technical difficulties; this concept was abandoned in favor of a model used by the Chinese Wikipedia. After a few months, the software was completed and now every visitor has the option to choose between two alphabets using tabs at the top of each article.
There are special tags used to indicate those words. Anti-transliteration tags in use are: --, that prevents transliteration of the article text, or __БЕЗКН__, that prevents transliteration of the article's name. Though there are still minor technical issues, Cyrillic-Latin transliteration is working successfully. Ekavian–Ijekavian conversion, however, is much more complicated, its implementation is not yet complete. However, despite the difficulties, this is the first successful attempt to develop the software which will allow parallel work on all four variants of the Serbian language. Since the inaugural meeting on Tuesday, 15 February 2005, members of the Serbian wiki community have been holding regular gatherings; as of September 2013, 253 meetings took place — in Belgrade, with about a dozen taking place in Novi Sad, along with a few in Niš, Pančevo, Pirot. At first congregating at each other's apartments, bars and public parks, by late 2005 community members began gathering at the Belgrade Youth Center, which provided meeting space free of charge.
At the first of these Youth Center meetings on Saturday, 3 December 2005, the community members founded the Wikimedia Foundation's local chapter for Serbia and Montenegro called Wikimedia Serbia and Montenegro. At the time, it was only the fifth local Wikimedia Foundation chapter anywhere in the world. Following the May 2006 Montenegrin referendum whose outcome led to the breakup of the Serbia and Montenegro state union, the local chapter modified its name to Wikimedia Serbia, it is registered as a non-governmental, non-partisan, non-profit organization and its stated goals include promotion of the creation and multiplication of free content in Serbian language as well as promotion of the idea that everyone should have equal access to knowledge and education. That year in December, the Serbian chapter hosted the first Wikimedia regional conference for Southeast Europe. Three more regional conferences were put together over the next several years, all of them hosted by Wikimedia Serbia. In February 2012, Wikimedia Serbia organized an event called Open Wiki GLAM of Serbia as part of the bigger project of the same name.
Standing for Galleries, Archives & Museums, GLAM is devoted to the topics of Serbian cultural and historical heritage as well as protection of intellectual property and copyright on the Internet. That year in December, Wikimedia Serbia got its own office space located in downtown Belgrade at the beginning of the King Aleksandar Boulevard where most of the Serbian wiki community meetings now began to take place. Serbian Wikipedia cooperates with the University of Belgrade's Faculty of Mathematics, Faculty of Physical Chemistry and Faculty of Philology as well as the University of Montenegro's Faculty of Electrical Engineering. Students of those faculties have made occasional contributions to the Serbian Wikipedia by editing its articles. Due to the similarity of the varieties of Serbo-Croatian, one of the features is copying and adapting articles from one language version of Wikipedia to another Another Serbian language project, Serbian Wikinews has more than 52,000 a
