Wikipedia Day

January 15, 2023

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 00:00 on day 15 of January, repeating indefinitely

When:
January 15
Where:
🌐 Everywhere
First occurrence:
Wikipedia.org went online January 15 in 2001.
The idea was to create an encyclopedia that
everyone could contribute to.

The open format led to many people sharing knowledge.
However the attention also attracted misinformation
and abuse. Which led to a more tighter policy on
contributions enforced by a dedicated team that keeps
our favorite encyclopedia a good source to find information
on an ever expanding range of subjects.
