Wikipedia was launched on January 15, 2001, which makes the crowd-sourced encyclopedia 15 years old this week. To mark the milestone, the Wikimedia Foundation has revealed the most-edited articles since Wikipedia’s inception.

Much has changed at Wikipedia since its foundation a decade and a half ago. The website is drastically different, there are native mobile apps for smartphones, Wikipedia vandalism has become a thing, and the number of people who use Wikipedia on a day-to-day basis has shot through the roof — it is the seventh most-visited site on the planet, according to Alexa, and the only nonprofit anywhere near the top. It also passed five million English-language articles last year.

In 2001, the most-edited article was Creationism, with 149 edits. In 2015, the most-edited article was Deaths in 2015, with more than 18,000 edits. That was also the most-read article, as it happens, with almost 28 million views. Yearly deaths have been the most-edited articles on the English-language Wikipedia annually, since 2007.

Of the 5,053,647 English-language articles, there have been a total of 808,187,367 edits. Here, we take a look at the most-edited articles of all time.
