The Most Interesting Pages on Wikipedia

If you love Wikipedia as much as the rest of us, please consider donating here. Donations also keep Jimmy Wales from creeping everybody out by having his face everywhere on Wikipedia.

Wikipedia and Wikimedia articles, pictures, and so forth, as well as informative articles, images, and videos directly relating to Wikipedia are allowed. Anything else probably doesn't belong in this subreddit and will be removed by the mods. Also, please DO NOT editorialize your headline or use TIL, there are other places far more appropriate for both and offending posts will be removed. Articles with false/incorrect information in the title WILL BE REMOVED. Please message the mods if you think your post has been incorrectly removed, we're more than happy to take another look at it.

Please do not submit screenshots of a Wikipedia page, link to the specific version in the version history instead. Posts linking to a screenshot will be removed.

To link to a specific version of a Wikipedia article:

  • On the page you want, click the "View History" tab at the top right.
  • Find the version you'd like to link to, and click the timestamp.
  • Copy the URL of that page, and voila, you can link to that exact version.

To highlight a part of a wikipedia article:

  • Add before the url of the article you'd like to submit while in your browser, and hit enter
  • Highlight the part(s) of the article you'd like to
  • Submit the new url to /r/wikipedia!
