Wikipedia, or, is the world's largest and oldest online encyclopaedia. It is also one of the oldest MediaWiki installations on the planet, and was the original impetus for the creation of the pywikipedia scripts, as the name obviously implies.

Much of the testing of these scripts has been done on Wikipedia, and not Wikia, the site where you are most likely reading this message. Consequently, much of the existing documentation for these scripts stresses Wikipedia usage, which may not be applicable here. Indeed, there are several scripts that are a part of the normal installation of pywikipedia which only work on Wikipedia.

Wikipedia is related to Wikia in that they have the same founder — Jimbo Wales — but they have little legal connection.
