The Wikipedians - see the description - are the users who collaborate in the Wikipedia project by writing and modifying its entries. Anyone can, in seconds, be a Wikipedian: just start collaborating. Although each user has his own areas of interest, it is always and in any case important to remember that on Wikipedia one is generally anonymous and in any case there are no "experts", but only reliable and third-party sources on which to base all one's contributions.
From the self-interviews you can learn more about some of them who have decided to describe themselves.
Registered users among all multilingual projects are constantly increasing, and to these are added the numerous contributions of unregistered users (generally called "anonymous users" as they do not have a username). There are 2 173 361 registered on it.wiki and their complete list is shown in Special: Users. For statistical information on Wikipedia and its users, see en: Wikipedia: Statistics (in English) or this page: .
Partly out of joke and partly so as not to ... take itself too seriously, an ironic page is active that collects various polls, and a page on jokes and jokes ... If you are a Wikipedian and you believe that Wikipedia absorbs too much of the your time, do not miss to participate in the test: "Do you consider yourself a wikidependent?".

Wikipedians for groups
The extreme heterogeneity of the people who collaborate on Wikipedia makes an exhaustive typological subdivision complicated.

" (from John Wilkins' analytic idiom) However, an attempt at classification is made here without claiming to be exhaustive: browsing through the following lists it is possible to get an idea of some Wikipedians.

Finally, every good Wikipedian - whenever he is about to insert some contribution - should not forget, especially in the absence of inspiration, to raise his own personal wiki-prayer (freely inspired by the prayer of Serenity - see also Serendipity):
have the serenity to accept the pages that I know I cannot write
