My time for Wikipedia is limited, so please excuse me and do not be surprised if I disappear for long periods of time. I can always be reached via email if you are trying to reach me.
I have been a participant in Wikipedia since 2005, and contributing for several years. Currently in my spare time available for Wikipedia, I mainly contribute to articles for creation, and help authors improve articles so that they can be moved into the encyclopedia, among other things. I also utilize IRC under the same name. I also enjoy thinking of Wikipedia, its online community, and how it all gets along. I've written about this very subject, which you can find below.

“Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.” —This is Wikipedia.
This credo is a worthy one; indeed, I am a supporter of Wikipedia, but I also fear for its future for things such as editor attrition which is caused by a complex web of issues, not the least of which is what I perceive to be a failing Wikipedia governance model.
I also fear for Wikipedia when I see veteran editors throw in the towel due to irritating and ridiculous, and completely unnecessary obstructions to fixing things that we feel are broken. Where is our recourse? "File an RfC" and "File an ARBCOM", of course, is a clearly solution to everything on Wikipedia.
What has kept Wikipedia going is the organic nature in which it has blossomed and grown. The community exercises nearly complete control over Wikipedia's direction in a semi-democratic fashion (a deliberative democracy). This is both a blessing and a curse. This model has worked excellently to date, but it is demonstrably breaking down as Wikipedia grows into what I label a hideous bureaucratic nightmare.

[10:25pm] Thorncrag: i leave smelling like a frigging urinal cake.
[10:25pm] jorm: is that because you mistook the urinal cake for
very large breath mint?
