Malay Wikipedia (Malay: Wikipedia Bahasa Melayu, Jawi script: ويکيڤيديا بهاس ملايو, abbreviation: mswiki) is the Malay edition of Wikipedia. This edition was started in October 26, 2002 and has about 178,000 articles in February 2013 and is the 30th largest Wikipedia. The system was activated by Wikipedia administrator Brion Vibber.[1][2]

Despite the similarities between Malay and Indonesian, the Malay Wikipedia and Indonesian Wikipedia were started separately by two different user groups. The Indonesian Wikipedia was started about six months after the Malay Wikipedia was. As of 2009, the Indonesian Wikipedia had three times the number of active editors and articles the Malay Wikipedia had. In 2009 Andrew Lih wrote "Because these groups are drawn on national boundaries, merging is not likely to happen soon."[3]

Starting July 27, 2016, file upload is no longer facilitated at the Malay Wikipedia and instead redirected to Wikimedia Commons. It is the only Wikipedia to do so, however, file upload at the English and other languaged Wikipedia remains facilitated.
