A Wikiholic (also Wikiaddict which may or may not be a more severe form of this condition) is subjected to an increasing stream of addictiveness to wiki editing and also may be under a great deal of wikistress, sometimes unknowingly.


This condition may include many different sort of behaviours.

  1. A typical wikiholic will never have less than 50 edits on any given date.
  2. The F5 key on his/her keyboard is heavily used to the point that it no longer works.

Feel free to add behaviours as they arise.


This condition may go hand in hand with wikiwackos and thus an addict walks a fine line between sanity and insanity. If you feel you are a victim of this condition (or both), then please see the article on Wikivacation.
