I think Wikipedia is definately a Community in the most fundemental sense. Take a look at http://irc.netsplit.de/channels/index.php?net=freenode&num=0&query=wikipedia
The 2005 Webby nomination under the category Community is another strong indication that we're doing something right as a community.
I have started included a "Strategic Community Worksheet" on the English language Wikipedia as part of The WkiProject Community there. Could use some help and support for the project.

Assumption of community 
Using the same platform to drop information makes us part of the community. Knowing that the information that is left on the pages can be changed, challenged or adopted by all the other members makes us part of one community. I mentioned that the part that I call community can regulate several of shortcommings of individual members. I am deeply impressed by the devotion of several of the members. --Neozoon 22:18, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
