Confirmed Wikipediholics[edit]

Hey Wikiholics try something new: Wikifun.

Wikipediholics Anonymous (WA) is a program created to help Wikipediholics to come to terms with who they truly are, for recognition of Wikipediholism in oneself can be quite healthy.

Those who have confessed publicly to WA are:

  • Hi I am Cbrittain10 (talk|contribs) and I suffer from wikipediholism. I was editing one of the sexuality portal pages, when a girl asked me out. I said yes. I was editing the adultery page, when another girl asked me out. I said yes, when I still had the second one! And I already had the girlfriend who I just remembered that I got months ago! Now I have three girlfriends thanks to wikipedia, and only one of them is bisexual. I need a BREAK. Cbrittain10 (talk|contribs) 00:57, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Hi I'm Ayla and I'm a Wikipediaholic. The first time I took the test I got a 140,667 on revision 434400257. I might take it again in hopes of a lower, less addictive score, but I must work on so many aritcles... I worry I might...(sigh...) relapse ReelAngelGirl (talk) 17:45, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
  • I just took the test, taking an hour and a half of time when I was supposed to be doing homework. I scored 8719, which means that I have begun to incorporate Wikipedia religiously, and am going to make a user subpage with my results. I am a Wikipediaholic. -- Imadeausername! (talk|contribs) 05:03, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Believe me or not I found all the symptoms of Wikipediholic in me. This is crazy. Oniongas (talk) 12:41, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
  • I've been here since March 08 and I got Advanced Wikipediholic. SimpsonsFan08 talk contribs 09:48, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
  • I've been here for...what...one month? Anyway, I'm already seeing a few symptoms of...the addiction. In fact, I scored about 1600 points...answering truthfully. For example, in school, I'm compelled to put double-brackets around the special terms on the blackboard. And that urge to edit...just never goes. Never. Ever. --~~MusicalConnoisseur~~ Got Classical? 04:36, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Hi. I have let my career very nearly get destroyed due to wikipedia. Everyday I came in to work and thought "I'll just check my watchlist once", and before I knew it, it had spent the entire day on it without getting any work done. Finally I requested a block of two weeks. It helped somewhat, though I still kept making edits anonymously. I'm hoping to get a grip on this ailment eventually.

  • Hi, My name is Nikhil and I am hopelessly addicted. I just spend too much time on it.
  • Hello, my name is Ryan. I used to love video games before I found Wikipedia, but now I only use video games when I am away from my computer of disconnected from the internet. My new hobby is gaining free knowledge from Wikipedia. ...I confess...
  • Hello, my name is Linus, and I'm… a Wikipediholic. My addiction is interfering with school, and my family has started making jokes about addiction to Wikipedia. I use sometimes use wikimarkup to signify numbered lists, and have contemplated coding a web authoring program that would convert wikimarkup into HTML, and possibly vice-versa. Thank you for your time.

  • Hello, my name is Erik and I'm a wikipediholic. It has been 3 minutes since my last edit. Since I started three weeks ago, I cannot stop. I find obscure items of my youth and create and edit articles for them. I find obscure music I listen to and create and edit articles for them. I wiki at work at home, it has taken over my life.
  • I'm very scared. Help. I just came to wikipedia 12 hours ago. I have yet to stop. I could lose my job.
  • Hello, mon nom est 896, et je suis un wikipediholique. I redirected "fun" to "wikipedia" within a week of getting here, and when someone redirected it to "recreation" I realized my conception of "fun" had been somewhat damaged.
  • Helloo, my name is Greg, and I am an IRCaholic... whoops, wrong room.

  • Hello, my name Bryan, and I am a wikipediholic.
  • Hello, my name is Bignose, and I have undiagnosed wikipediholism, even more tragic because I was suspected of it after less than 24 hours here. I agonise over the correct way to represent dates in articles. ( "Undiagnosed"??? Hmmmm... MB)
  • Okay, I confess... my name is Simon and I am a wikipediholic.
  • Hello, my name is Larry, and I...OK, gosh...golly, OK here goes. I am a...a...wikipediholic. (See, I just made that word bold.) I admit it, I compulsively...you know...copyedit. I also redirect pages. Sometimes I even...write content. (a startled murmur from the crowd, audible whispers of "we understand, Larry, it's OK, Larry, be strong, Larry...")
  • Hello, my name is R.J., and I am a wikipediholic. I find myself trying to wikify all my word-processing and email, and crying out in frustration when it's not possible.
  • Hello, my name is Lee, and I have an insatiable compulsion to change "/talk" into "/Talk", to add spaces to initials and periods to U.S., and take commas outside of quotation marks when they don't belong. I shake visibly upon seeing "more then..." or an incorrect "it's". At last, there's a place where my condition can find a healthy outlet and practical use. (Their, their, its OK... )
  • My name is Michel, but I don't belong here. I am not a wikipediholic. I can stop any time I want to...
  • I'm WP and I can't help checking Recent Changes 30 times a day
  • Hello, my name is The Cunctator, and I'm a wikipediholic. And people seem to hate me.
  • Hello, my name is Jimbo Wales, and I'm a wikipediholic. And I'm one of the people who seems to hate Cunctator, but I don't really.  :-)
  • I quit smoking so I could spend more time here Unelmankutoja
  • My name is Taw and I'm a wikipediholic. (If somebody thinks that I'm cured, because I contribute less than before - I mostly abuse the Polish Wikipedia now :))
  • Hi all, my name is Mathijs, I'm 35 yrs, married, three kids, I've got a good job in the Dutch National Health Service, with a permanent connection, I've twice had a row with LMS, I've been denounced as a troll and a bigot, but I can't help being a wikipediholic.
  • Hi, my name is David, and I'm a wikipediholic. I scored 54 on the test, which means you should all be afraid. :-)
  • Now I'm worried. I started the wikipediholics page, but I wasn't convinced I was one until last night when I dreamt of talking with Larry in person about the Wikipedia...--AstroNomer
  • user:Chuck Smith - anyone who starts a Wikipedia in a language that is not his native deserves to be here... and I called Jimbo today... 'nuff said!
  • user:Anthere - "Mais que diable allait-elle faire dans cette galère?"
  • Hi, my name is A.D.Danilecki and I am a wikipediholic.
  • Hi, my name is Ed and I'm a Wikipediholic. I tried to stay away, I deleted my bookmarks, but the thoughts kept coming back. I would wake up at night, thinking of phrases to insert into articles. I even started doing off-line edits. I admit that I was powerless over my addiction and I pray to my Higher Power for deliverance, but not yet, please!. -- Ed Poor
  • You know you are a wikipediholic when you fall asleep at your keyboard and the first thing you do upon waking is check that damn "Recent Changes" page. It just won't go away! maveric149 (his other claim to fame is he has the only user page to make the most popular page list! - today, July 8, 2002, he's just above Linda Lovelace and just below Clitoris.)
  • My name is Calypso and me too I confess I am a wikipediholic. I was a bit worried, but now that I see that I am in good company I feel much better. In Spanish there is a proverb that says "Mal de muchos, consuelo de tontos", which translates loosely into "It is foolish to be consoled upon seeing that many others share your woes".
  • User:sodium is trying to wean himself off with drugs and alcohol...
  • matusz
  • I'm Eclecticology and I'm a wikipediholic. To make it worse I can't stick to just one subject area at a time.
  • Yes, I admit. I have a bad case of Wikipediholism. I might well average over 100 edits a day (although to my defense I would like to say that most are just the cleaning up of redirects to disambiguation pages - check out Wikipedia:Disambiguation pages with links, more help is much appreciated) Andre Engels
  • My name is Ram-Man and I am a Wikipediholic. I've created approximately 35,000 articles on counties and cities. I feel an uncany urge to make more articles.
  • Finally, a forum where I can share my shameful and embarrassing addiction. --Dante Alighieri
  • Hi, my name is Qaz. I am a little scared to be here or to say anything. I am just repeating to myself what Stuart Smiley said, "Fear is a darkroom where negatives are developed." I know I need help. Whenever I hear something particularly witty, insightful or profound I immediately wonder if it is in the public domain, and if it is not, I think of ways to get it to be. I hope I can be as strong as some of the people I have seen here tonight. (Sits back down nervously)
  • Hi I am Youssefsan. Does shiné help ? Yes it is a short introduction, but I will update it. 68 points (15 feb 2003). Did I cheat or need I to recount again ?
  • Hi, my name is Montréalais, and I am a wikipediholic. I have been known to surf from article to article, clicking the first unused link in each article, seeing how far I get. I have written articles on Canadian provinces, constellations, and Queer culture. I have a Talk archive and a list of my articles. When I went to New York and Toronto on vacation, one of my main thoughts (immediately below "Take pictures for my website!") was "Take pictures for Wikipedia!" Now I know I need help.
  • I'm Tannin and I'm taking the Fifth!
  • Hi, my name is Arwel, and I'm a wikipediholic.... but I can stop anytime, honest -- there are 51 denominations of pre-decimal British coinage and I've only written articles on 21 of them (so far!). What self-control!!
  • Hello, my name is Geoffrey, and I am a Wikipediholic. I got a 74/261 on the test, as stated on my user page. No, I can't quit anytime I like...unless the entire Wikipedia degenerates into arguments and metadiscussions and I find another website to be addicted to...
  • Hi, my name is Stan, and I am a Wikipediholic - yesterday I bought a cover mailed from the USS Seattle in 1923, for the sole purpose of adding a scan of it to the article. I think about downloading the whole database so I can do analysis of its structure.
  • Hello, my name is Astudent, and I am a Wikipediholic... not that there's anything wrong with that (Seinfeld).
  • Hello, my name is Nanobug, and I only scored 40 on the test, so I'm not really a Wikipediholic, no, really, I'm not. I have an irresistible urge to put all the documents in my office in to an office-wide Wiki but I'm worried that none of my colleagues would ever edit them there. I have a bookmark folder of all the other Wikis (e.g. WikiWiki), and all the Wiki engines I can find. I can't understand why all my friends and workmates, whom I have told about Wikipedia, don't start editing the Wikipedia also. What possible reason could they have?
  • Hi, my name is Jim, and I'm a wikipediholic. 4000 plus edits between Feb 27 and June 12 2003, and I have a job and I'm married. Sad or what?
  • Yep, Ilyanep is a wikipediholic! (Me). With almost 100-200 edits after one month (And now I'm almost a year running!), plus 102 on the wikipediholic test...I'm a wikipediholic! I have to take 2 month break periods to get sleep, Hibernation
  • I, uh, am Menchi. I knew that WP is an attractive place at the beginning and have semi-privately noted that I have Wikipediholism after the test. But, I just don't want to confess publically and officially here until now, I didn't want to become one of you! But alas, I am! I am! Well, at least I've been for half a year. Maybe my Wikipediholism will stop, and maybe it will tomorrow! Yep, I dream weird stuff. Until then, I am one of you. --Menchi 02:39 1 Jul 2003 (UTC)
  • Even though I only discovered this site last week, I am quick on the way to becoming a Wikipediholic, so I might as well mention myself here. Quick, pass the coffee, I'm having withdrawls. I just made an amusing post at Recovering Wikipediholics, making note that there was a reason it hasn't been created yet. Lypheklub 06:11, 25 Aug 2003 (UTC)
  • Hmm. I suppose the cat is pretty much out of the bag. Number 144 on Wikipedia:Most active Wikipedians. Doesn't really leave much room for interpretations. I've even started to mix wikipedias (wikiquote and the Finnish Wikipedia) a sure sign of a progressing addiction. -- Cimon Avaro on a pogo stick
  • Hi, my name's Mark, and I'm a Wikipediholic. I prefer the company of my watchlist to that of real people. My social life is suffering. Hang on, I don't have one any more... - Mark 04:37, 8 Jan 2004 (UTC)
  • Tim Starling -- I was listed on Wikipediholics in denial for quite some time, but since then the problem has increased. Sure, I'm addicted, but I don't want to stop yet.
  • Omegatron - I am addicted, or becoming addicted. 129 on the test. I will try to cut back...
  • Mikez - has had the idea of physically unplug every pice of wire between the different parts of the computer to be able to get rid of this *@!% sv:wikipedia/wiktionary-dependency - but then I realize that I *do* use it to write other stuff also, and as a CD player... so I need it in a working condition - but then I'm stuck with... well, you know what! (test gave 122 if I was able to calculate it correctly - it is 3.45 am right now, and I've been alternately studying (as I should!) and writing (on wikipedia) since about 9 am yesterday.) (I made a bad choice of a word last time, so when I now remember to correct it... well.)
  • Antonio The Infection Martin. Im a sexaholic and also a wikiholic and an attention-holic. You cant get worse than that! My score in the wiki test was 77, at the sex and attention test, 150 out of 100 I guess!. After my with some married Black hot woman, I wake up thinking wikipedoia.
  • Hello, I'm Litefantastic and I'm a wikiholic. It really began quite innocently. I'd always wondered: Is there, somewhere, a list of fictional countries? It was an innocent curiosity, and to be delight we had one. From there, I wondered if we had a list of fictional chemical subsatnces (like Kryptonite). We did not. So I made one. From there on out it was an ever-downward path of obscure list making in regards to works of fiction. List of fictional people who smoke, List of fictional people who were cremated, and, perhaps my greatest work, the Archive of fictional things. It got out of control. Today, I created the list of fictional Elvis impersonators, and I decided it had to stop. And it will. Just as soon as I finish organizing everything that ever existed into some sort of list.
  • Hello. I'm not a Wikipediholic. *hears snickers around the room*. Oh yeah? Well, I'll have you know, Wikipedia has nothing to do with me staying up until 1:00 AM due to a lack of free time to do homework... wait, I have plenty of free time I just spend on here... !*&% ugen64 03:55, Sep 21, 2004 (UTC)
  • Hello. I scored 600 at the test and when my girlfriend sleeps I get up and go fix articles. --Sam Hocevar 17:52, 15 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • omg i don't know what i would do at work if i didn't have Wikipedia. there are restrictions to web sites i can visit and so when i found Wikipedia.org it was my day of enlightenment. i think i read the whole thing the first week and so i've had to create some new stuff one being Wikifun i hope others follow in my footsteps!--Larsie 18:48, 19 Oct 2004 (UTC)

  • The only time I visit "the rest of the web" is when I'm checking for copyvio or verifying something that was added to an article. Even then, when I see a word spelled incorrectly I impulsively look for the "edit this page" link. My e-mail filters block all mail except from Wikipedia e-mail and the wikien-l mailing list. No clue what I would score on the test -- I'm too busy refreshing anon RC. Oooh, speaking of that... <<click>> SWAdair Talk 01:19, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • Hello........... My name is Steven... *pause* ... and I have a Wikipedi'ing problem. *sniffle*. I have no life outside Wikipedia. I live, eat, drink, smell Wikipedia, and other things such as classes and a social life have seriously lacked. My score is 180. I must get help somehow... I'm also a Wookieepediholic. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:54, Mar 29, 2005 (UTC)

  • I love Wikipedia and knowledge, and often get diverted from homework to edit Wikipedia (which is what I'm doing now). Occasionally, I get massive headaches and need to take a break. My friends all think I'm crazy, and that I need to go on MySpace or Maple Story. Little do they know they're the crazy ones, I'M THE ONLY SANE ONE!

  • Hello, my name is Evan and I am a Wikiholic. Here I am again browsing Wikipedia at 3:16 AM, but that's alright because even though I've got work in the morning at 9:30 AM I work best with little sleep.

My dad started me on Wikipedia,...and well...let's just say editing on Wikipedia right now is breaking more than one rule. I AM A WIKIPEDIAHOLIC! That felt good. I scored around 4000 on the wikipediaholic test and edited an aritcle while I did it!

  • Hello. I'm Mizu onna sango15, and I am a Wikipediholic. I scored 3,992 on the Wikipediholism test and was diagnosed a matter of weeks ago. But it's okay. I'm living proof that you can go on to lead normal, semi-healthy lives with Wikipediholism. There is hope. Mizu onna sango15 06:59, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

  • I never bothered to calculate my score, since it's a long list of 50s and 100s...need I say more? I recently found myself obsessed with Wikipedia. I just had a International Day interview and for "hobbies" I actually answered "contributing to Wikipedia" without thinking-the atmosphere in the room had being strange ever since. Also I nearly smashed the school computer when I got a warning message saying that my friend could not register with my school's server. I also posted my account link onto Facebook, tagged, Myspace, everything...(200 more proofs taken out here)...I also began to speak with NPOV...(200 more symptoms taken out here)...What am I going to do!!! Especially after three months I'm going back to China! Help!--Faizaguo (talk) 22:48, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Problem? What problem? Who said I have a problem? There's no problem. I have no problem. Quit looking at me like that! I'm not a Wikipediholic! Not like all of you guys! I just like to have a little fun every once in a while, you know? Take the edge off, man. But not too much at once, you know. I can regulate. Maintain. Keep cool. I am in control, and I am not a Wikipediholic. (LOL!).--Pericles of AthensTalk 19:18, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Suspected wikipediholics[edit]

Sadly, the WA programme has yet not managed to help a number of victims.

Suspected, but not admitted, Wikipediholics include:

  • Tim -- I merely have a higher tolerance for editing than most people. (But thanks for your concern. :-)
  • Pinkunicorn (I can quit anytime I like)
  • Stephen Gilbert - "I don't have a problem, and there's nothing you sick rat bastards can say to change that!"
  • GWO - I took a break recently due to work commitments, but I appear to have relapsed...
  • AxelBoldt - People keep telling me about these self help groups, but I don't have time for stuff like that.
  • Koyaanis Qatsi - "My Wikipediaholism was at its worse in June and July, but lately--with grad school and two jobs--I just haven't had the time...." (various murmurs) "....Still, I think about steering my work towards subjects that can make wikipedia entries." (gasps, "oh no"s, "be strong")
  • sjc - "It's just that I prefer it to drink, drugs, vice and gambling. I just don't have time for any of those anymore."
  • mike dill - "I actually stayed away from the changes page for a day this week, I'm probably not a Wikipediholic."
  • --Kpjas here 'holic of Wikipedia kind.
  • Malcolm Farmer - "I just do a few pages now and then, just to relax"
  • Karen Johnson - I'm not addicted! I can give it up any time I like... honest I can... after I finish the complete listing of cat pages AND the complete catalogue of South American bumblebees AND crosslink every reference to 'recipe' in the entire wikipedia and... oh no! My ISP says I've been online for the last 48 hours straight and connected to the 'pedia for the whole time... they're threatening to cut off my access if I don't give them a special credit on my userpage :)

  • Jim Regan I'd say I'm a functional Wikipediholic.
  • My name is Stevertigo and I'm *not an alcoholic. I may have an occasional martini for breakfast, but...
  • Hi, I'm Noel and if I keep going at my current rate I'll have to switch sections. Also, I'm wondering - do we have any verified cases yet of divorces caused by Wikipedia ... and how many points will that be worth on the Are You a Wikipediholic Test?
  • KirbyMeister Um... is this the lucid dreaming page? Wait.. I AM NOT A WIKIPEDIHOLIC! DONT TAKE ME AWAY! I DIDNT MEAN TO PUT DOUBLEBRACKETS AROUND lucid dreaming!!! I only submitted a couple changes and images!
  • Rafał Pocztarski – Wikipediholic? What a nonsense! I just happen to— Will you excuse me, I have something important to do...
  • Nuno Tavares 01:37, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC) (I'm not sure if you are making fun of all this. This got serious.)
  • My name is Anna Burke, and I simply use this for school. School only. That's it. The fact that I'm at home and could be watching the Simpsons is completely besides the point. Im doing . . . um . . . homwork . . . yeah . . . that'll do <looks around shiftily and sits down>
  • My Name is Fahiym Richards, and well what else can I say . . . I'm too damned addicted!!! Every knight it comes down to two things: a cup of coffee and my Firefox pointed at Wikipedia.org. My guess as to why I'm so addicted is the easy access to knowledge which is otherwise more difficult to find considering the expansiveness of the internet as a whole. Anyway, blessings Wikipedia. Keep strong!!!
  • Hi, people I'm User:Neranei and I'm completely and utterly addicted to Wikipedia, I neglect work that I have to do to edit, and once had 50+browsers open. Oh yeah and I edit at school when no one's looking. MUST...EDIT...

  • I might be addicted to Wikipedia, but I'm not sure... I'm spending more time on it every week, mainly just my userpage... I don't know if it's good or bad, even. I kinda like it, ya know?

Other suspects[edit]

And many more... perhaps all those on the list of Wikipedia:Most active Wikipedians. But that's merely a suspicion, not witch-hunt, for all those suspected and confessed are not considered to have employed black magic or have it employed onto them to create Wikipediholism.

There are also those who refuse to be Wikipediholics: Wikipedia:Wikipediholics in denial.
