This is a list of 1,000 basic articles every Wikipedia needs.

The original version of this list is from Simple English Wikipedia. See also the version on Meta: m:List of articles all languages should have, which is somewhat extended. Please do not change this list. It is still being discussed. See the IRC channel #wikilist at irc.freenode.org. The supposedly canonical list is the one at meta — changes should be made there.

Almost all these articles exist on en:. But ideally, Wikipedia 1.0 should have all these articles up to featured quality. Many of these have a long way to go. Please work on improving as needed. Articles that are already on Wikipedia:Featured articles are marked in bold.

See also Wikipedia:Version_1.0 Editorial Team/Pages to be rated — another take on the minimal article list.
