Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki is an online encyclopedia for information on the Star Wars fictional universe—including information on all six films, as well as The Clone Wars and the Expanded Universe. It is a more specialized and useful wiki created to be an extensive encyclopedia of the Star Wars universe, and is written almost entirely from an in-universe perspective. The name Wookieepedia is a portmanteau of Wookiee and Encyclopedia, being a pun on the name of Wikipedia. The logo, too, is a visual pun showing the incomplete second Death Star as opposed to Wikipedia's incomplete 'jigsaw logo'.
Wookieepedia was the most visited wiki hosted by Wikia as of April 2005[update]. On November 28, 2005, Wookieepedia was selected as the Sci Fi Channel's "Sci Fi Site of the Week." In January 2006, the site was Wikia's featured Wiki of the month.
As of November 18, 2009, the English language version of the wiki contains over 72,000 articles, making it the fourth-largest Wikia-hosted wiki in terms of article count, ahead of sites such as Uncyclopedia and Memory Alpha. Wikia also hosts Star Wars wikis in Bulgarian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Hungarian, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, and Spanish. Wookieepedia also coordinates its efforts with the German language Jedipedia and the Polish language Biblioteka Ossus.
