Getting Started

The first Wikipedia related to the Hungarian language was created sometime between May 20 and September 5, 2001, when Larry Sanger, the then coordinator of English Wikipedia, created the address at the request of an editor, who is still unknown. . At that time, Wikipedia was still using UseModWiki software. This “zero” version, wasn’t really “alive,” totaling approx. It contained 5 sheets and its surface was not translated into Hungarian either. According to the archives, in November 2002, Zoltán Simon tried to move the “zero” version to the new software (Phase III, later MediaWiki). According to the archives, this did not become anything, and no one really dealt with the matter after that. In April 2003, computer scientist Péter Gervai initiated the launch of a newer version of the Hungarian Wikipedia. The national Wikipedia, which still operates today and has a Hungarian homepage, was launched on July 8, 2003 at For technical reasons, the new version did not keep the old database with only a few pages. The first page created was the Home page (then also called the English Main page), followed by a file, the Hungarian logo of the Hungarian Wikipedia, then the Wikipedia: Upload log file, the welcome page, a system page about the article, then about the error reports page was created and then the Sandbox was created. Following this, the first article, entitled GNU Free Documentation License, was created on July 9, 2003 at 8:41 AM. The first non-Wikipedia system or free license page was Omega (ensemble), preceded by its explanatory page (Omega).
