  • nowikipediacom from August 2002 nowikipediaorg — a Wikipedia in Norwegian specified to be Norwegian Bokmål/Riksmål in 2005 was established on November 26, 2001
  • nnwikipediaorg — a Wikipedia in Norwegian Nynorsk, was established on July 31, 2004


The first site, the original Norwegian Wikipedia Norsk Wikipedia, launched on November 26, 2001, and originally did not specify which written standard could/should be used, although de facto almost all the articles were written in Bokmål/Riksmål The Norwegian Wikipedia originally had the address nowikipediacom, but in August 2002 all Wikipedia editions moved from the wikipediacom domain to the wikipediaorg domain, shortly after Jimbo Wales had announced that Wikipedia would never have commercial advertisements

A Nynorsk-specific Wikipedia was launched on July 31, 2004 and grew quickly Following a vote in 2005, the main Norwegian site became Bokmål and Riksmål only

By February 2007, the Bokmål/Riksmål edition had over 100,000 articles and the Nynorsk site had over 20,000 articles In February 2006, the Bokmål/Riksmål edition became the thirteenth Wikipedia to have more than 50,000 articles, and one year later it was the fourteenth to reach 100,000 After the Finnish Wikipedia surpassed it in April 2006 it was once again the 14th largest Wikipedia by article count However, in September 2007, the Bokmål/Riksmål Wikipedia surpassed the Finnish, and has since then been the 13th largest Wikipedia As of June 1, 2010, the Bokmål/Riksmål contains more than 260,000 articles, while the Nynorsk version contains over 57,000 Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish are mutually intelligible languages and can be understood by most speakers of each The sites collaborate with the other Scandinavian Wikipedias through the Skanwiki section of Wikimedia's Meta-Wiki site One effect of this combined effort is the sharing of their weekly featured front page articles between these four different Wikipedias

While the ISO 639 two-letter code for Bokmål is nb, the Bokmål and Riksmål Norwegian Wikipedia continues to be hosted at nowikipediaorg, while the narrower nb code redirects to that site The Nynorsk code is nn, and the Nynorsk Wikipedia is hosted at nnwikipediaorg

On April 9, 2013 at 22:55 UTC Nynorsk Wikipedia passed 100,000 articles

Wikimedia Norge is a Norwegian private membership association with the purpose to support Wikimedia's projects, in particular those in Norwegian and Sami languages The association was formed at a meeting at the National Library in Oslo on June 23, 2007 However, it has no formal role in relation to the Norwegian Wikipedia projects
