The Extremaduran Wikipedia (Extremaduran: Wikipedia en estremeñu) or Güiquipeya[1] is the Extremaduran-language edition of Wikipedia, a free, online encyclopedia.[2] It has 3,023 articles. Started on 27 January 2007, although it was not until 28 May 2008 when it obtained its new definitive URL. With more than 1300 entries, it is ranked 205th in the Wikipedia list according to the number of articles.


Different media have criticized the Extremaduran version of Wikipedia. It is questioned that the Extremaduran is not really a language, it is a dialect of Asturian and Castilian,[3] and that it does not have a defined spelling rule.[3] The fact that the page only has three main contributors, the same who initiated the project has also been the subject of controversy.[4][5]
