The Kannada Wikipedia (Kannada: ಕನ್ನಡ ವಿಶ್ವಕೋಶ) is the Kannada-language edition of Wikipedia. Started in June 2003, it is moderately active and as of January 2021, it has 26,777 articles with 137 active users. Also, it is the twelfth-most popular Wikipedia in the Indian subcontinent.
The Kannada Wikipedia community held a meeting in Bangalore on April 2, 2006, which got fairly high press coverage.
As of August 16, 2009 the Wiki had about 6,800 articles, making it the 100th-biggest Wikipedia edition.
As of January 2013, it has 12,961 articles with 93 active users and 2,680 images, making it the 108th Wikipedia by articles count, at that time.
As of January 2016, the Kannada Wikipedia is the tenth-largest and, thus, the smallest Wikipedia among other Indian-language Wikipedias. Administrator Omshivaprakash attributes the lack of articles to a lack of interest among the Kannada-speaking community, a lack of awareness of the Kannada Wikipedia and Kannada typing tools, and limited Internet access in parts of Karnataka.
