Wikibio is a project of the Institute of Wikipediology, that creates NPOV non-user page sources of information about Wikipedians' activities, history, and wikibeliefs.

Please keep in mind:

  • Wikibios are voluntary on the part of the subject. Please do not create a wikibio without its subject's participation or consent; if you do so, it will be deleted.
  • Wikibios are not extensions of user pages. Information about your pet gecko does not belong here, nor does information not available at wikipedia, even if it is "relevant" — such as e-mails or conversations at meetups.
  • Wikibios are not vanity pages. Subjects should have at least 5,000 edits (possibly not all in English), have served in an appointed or elected capacity at Wikipedia, and/or have been here at least two years; any—not necessarily all—of these qualifications and have volunteered to be the subject of a wikibio. (These standards may be relaxed over time.)
  • Wikibios are not Signpost articles; events described in wikibios should be at least a month old.
  • Wikibios should be reasonably sourced, using talk pages, nominations, Signpost, etc.


This list is not complete, please expand it (or alphabetize it if you are exceptionally brave).

Permission granted[edit]

Please add {{wikibio}} to the user page of the subject of a wikibio.

  • Andrevan - I have created it, but I'm not interested in writing it all myself.
  • BD2412 - I suppose there's a story somewhere among those 50,000 edits.
  • Can't sleep, clown will eat me - Sure, why not. 8-)
  • Celestianpower - Thanks those who created
  • ClockworkSoul - Go for it. You can ask me anything you like, but I don't have the mental/emotional/physical/temporal resources to write it myself.
  • Drini Go ahead, I fullfill a few —not necessarily all— of inclusion criteria.
  • Flcelloguy - Umm... why not? I'd rather not write it myself, though, as that would be inherently POV. :-)
  • freakofnurture - ok.
  • Grunt - well, if you think I'm that important...:) -- Grunt 17:26, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Guanaco
  • Hephaestos - no contributions from me obviously ;)
  • Ingoolemo: If y'all write it, I'll feel really important. :)
  • Jaranda - Why not, I recently passed the 5000 edit mark :)
  • JCarriker NPOVing, expansion, source
  • {{User:otcnews/wikibios|L. Edward Bache, Sr.,]] created
  • Jmabel created
  • Jobe6 Go ahead if you really want to.
  • Johnleemk Sure, sounds like a great idea. My userpage and User:Johnleemk/Bio can help if anyone's actually interested in this.
  • KnowledgeOfSelf Sure couldn't hurt, just be nice!
  • Linuxbeak Sure, why the heck not.
  • llywrch I hope this scavanger hunt doesn't prove that my credit report is findable thru a Google search.
  • MacGyverMagic - I'm not sure why anyone would wanna read it, but if someone's up for creating it, I have no objections.
  • Merovingian - Why not? :D
  • Messedrocker - feel free to write one on myself -- I want to see what a biography of myself not written by me would look like.
  • NerdyNSK - NerdyNSK 20:52, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Nightstallion – Sure, if you find something you think you could write about... shrugs
  • Pureblade - I suppose, if you can find anything to write about.
  • Redwolf24 - no problem, but I'd prefer to not write it on myself! ;-)
  • Schuminweb - Go for it!
  • Spangineer - if you build it, will they come?
  • Terence Ong - Feel free to write a Wikibio about me. I hope I qualify for it though. :D
  • Titoxd - go ahead, I just don't want to do it myself because it borders on WP:VAIN. ;)
  • the wub - if you feel like writing some nn editor cruft, be my guest
  • Zscout370 - Go right ahead, this could be fun. User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 03:32, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Permission denied or creation unlikely[edit]

  • Isis- while Isis played a unique role in the history and evolution of the Wikipedia community, given the circumstances of her departure it is most likely impossible that a wikibio could be written on her.
  • Essjay - Please leave the redirect to my userpage; the bio is hopelessly out of date and rather embarrassing.
