Mesopedianism is the philosophy of actively balancing participation between the internal workings and social side of Wikipedia and the editing articles and related content. Users who tend towards this philosophy are called mesopedians or meso-Wikipedians and fall between metapedians and exopedians in the spectrum of participation.

They tend to gravitate between one end of the spectrum and the other, depending on editing conditions and level of meta-discussion, so they are often indistinct from either metapedians or exopedians at any given moment, but are distinguished from them by a history of not being one or the other for any long period of time.
