The Chuvash Wikipedia (Chuvash: Чăваш Википедийĕ) is the Chuvash language[1] edition of Wikipedia. It was founded on November 22, 2004. Its 5,000th article was created in January 2007. On November 11, 2016, it passed the 36,000 article mark.


Rules in Chuvash Wikipedia are not regarded as being as flexible in disputes[clarification needed] as they are on the English project[clarification needed]. Many things can be resolved through an arbitration committee which can resolve content disputes, block users or prohibit certain users from editing articles on certain topics. Misuse of an administrator's privileges can also be easily appealed.[citation needed]

The Chuvash Wikipedia accepts fair use content and is generally quite liberal on what content is allowed. One thing which serves as an exception is categorization or listing of people based on their ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. Such categories are generally prohibited[why?] unless the category is relevant to the main activity of a person.[citation needed]

In Chuvash Wikipedia сontrols fakes from Moscow, all is written in broken Chuvash language.
