Wikipedia:Clinic for Wikipediholics

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wikiclinic for Wikipediholics. If you or someone you know is addicted to the Wikipedia, and the wikipatch has had no effect, consider checking them in. Better than checking in to the Hotel Wikipedia.

  • Mustapha-Habib Sklenash is the world's #1 wikipedia addict. Every free second he has is spent editing such notable articles as "Ali Completely Pwns" "Connect 4 4 Life" and the infamously vandalized "Famous Czech People," which has been removed over 100 times for being completely worthless.

  • October 28, 2003 - November 27, 2003: Dori checking myself in. I think I need to cut it out for a while (it hit me when I actually proposed a policy! page). Someone make sure I don't sneak in any edits while in the clinic :)
    • November 10 - Letting myself out for good behavior. I'll try to be less involved in the future. Dori
  • Checking myself in. Studies and all other aspects of life have gone, it is reasonable to say, out the window. I am writing this on my fourth hour of Wikipedia today. Ludraman 21:45, 1 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • I am actually going to do some study tonight (honest!) - can I check myself out for that?
    • I'll give you probation, but you better do your homework first :) Dori | Talk 18:10, Mar 3, 2004 (UTC)
    • I am going to do my homework - honest! I just need to do a few more edits...... :-) Ludraman 19:38, 3 Mar 2004 (UTC)

    • I woke up early to watch an edit (oops freudian slip) to watch a webcast on the people of [Darfur] ... unfortunately, my browser opens on the Random Page link and I got a message welcoming me to wikipedia as66.245.208.240 this is Pedant instead of watching my webcast, I clicked random page and wow, somehow I found myself here with no recollection of how I got here. I'm going back to wikisource now, gonna try to avoid editing anything before Das Kapital is ready to post. 13:02, 25 Aug 2004 (UTC)
      • I'm doing better now, some wikistress from the Ships project and teaching a group of kids what wiki etiquette was took me away from editing so much. My big problem now is I wake up trying to click the edit button on my nightmares. I no longer have any spare time whatsoever. Apparently, from the statstics, I'm getting worse, in the last month I've moved up from numbe 4000 plus in wikipedians by number of edits to under 700. I'd like to drop back to at least 1500th by next month. If I were a sysop I'd ban myself for a while. I can't focus and I find myself editing everything and every article linked to everything until my computer crashes. I had 23 tabs opened when I went out on last night's date, and didn't have the time to bookmark them. I had to explain what I was doing and my girlfriend took quite a while to get it. I knew I should have never let her know, she thinks I'm weird enough as it is. ('m going to try to avoid any more edits for 24 hours. pray for me Pedant 02:07, 2004 Dec 9 (UTC)

  • Umm, I hear voices in my head like 'EDIT' , EDIT, YOU MUST EDIT WIKIPEDIA'. Also I have these black outs, total blank vegetative states. When I come to, and become aware of it, I would be openning up random pages and editing like crazy on wikipedia. What's happening to me ?! Please help me somebody!

    When you're in you're not supposed to edit. Once you shake off the withdrawal symtomps, you try to edit less often. Dori | Talk 03:35, Dec 24, 2004 (UTC)
  • Gulp. I don't have the courage to check in... no edits for a week? I COULDN'T DO IT MAN! *hangs head* I've been here less than a month and I've got over 250 edits... I read books and textbooks and reach for the edit button to fix POV, typos, misfacts and other errors, I view other websites as sub-par because they are stagnant, even my persuasive essays are creepily NPOV. I just took the wikipediaholic test and scored 623.14. It's a good thing though! I can quit whenever I want! Honest! As Charlie Brown once said to Linus, "That blanket really is useful."

  • I have neglected my homework all day due to my lingering around Wikipedia. My eyes have been permanently damaged, and my sleeping hours have drastically dwindled. Cannabalistic hamsters have burned down my house. I resolve not to edit for a week three days and hopefully drop my current score of 229 even lower. I know I will fail.

  • Yeah. Time to check in. No more edits for a week... The final nail in the coffin was the edit war I had with myself today! Removed a huge section from Aggressive skating that I originally wrote(!), then added a huge section nearly identical to the one I removed, but before saving, got fed up with my writing and ended up removing the new huge section as well.
  • I had to delete wikipedia from my favorites at work, and I still wound up at the Kreyol site, doing edits--and I don't even speak Kreyol!. It's nearly 12 midnight and I still haven't let my dog outside. I get involved in meaningless debates about whether Gasoline should be Petrol and take one side as if it is a life or death situation. I need help. I need help. Meet me on my Talk Page. astiquetalk 04:01, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • I'm only here because the judge ordered me to. I'm not a Wikipediholic, I just like to edit for 10-20 hours a day and not sleep or go outside, and there was something I was supposed to before I checked in, but I don't remember it now. <>Who?¿? 05:55, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Checking in! Until I am completely cured (less than 135 on the test - I scored 210), I am going to limit my total time on all wikis to an hour a day, including homework. I am currently typing this during lunch break - I haven't even had lunch yet, and might not today. Although my obsession is not as great as many of yours, I do not have the free time messicary to support the lifestyle - I am in the most rigorous courses available to high school freshmen in the entire Snohomish Country (Washington). This does not include time on homework, as long as I am actually doing homework, rather than jacking off. My homework time can take up to an additional hour everyday (Time on Wikipedia = Time on homework + Time goofing off - Time goofing off is less than or equal to one hour, and total time is less than or equal to two hours) and then I have to find another resource - this is to prevent unnessicary temptation to keep going.

BTW, what suggestions do recovered Wikipediholics have for recovery???? --Trevdna 19:48, 23 November 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I think I am devoloping an addiction. I spend a large amount of time reading Wikipedia like it's a book.

As for me, I am Thor, and I am a wikipediaholic. I lied on my Wikipediholic test UBX on my User page, cause I thought people would see me as a nerd, so I tried to suppress my score.

  • Cure discovered: Want to cure your Wikiholism? Well it is actually quite simple to do.

Every time you wish to get on Wikipedia, or even to check your watchlist without editing, pour yourself a glass of water. Next, mix in a teaspoon or two (depending on how strong of a dose you want) of salt, and mix. You must swish the salt-water in your mouth for at least a minute and a half before you can go on Wikipedia. Continue to do this for a while, increasing salt content if you need a higher dose. Another variation is a mixture of water and hot sauce, but this you must drink fully before getting on. If you continue to drink the mixtures every time you edit Wikipedia, you will eventually associate Wikipedia with the mixture and quit or at least edit less. Good luck! =D Malinaccier (talk contribs) 02:11, 20 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Last week I had two dreams of editing Wikipedia. No, not just editing... I mean all I saw was black type on a white screen! That's it. I always used to dream in vivid color, with very animated human beings, and pretty trees, and sometimes scarey killers chasing me, but they were interesting. Not some random black words on a white background! WTH? I can't even remember what words they were! It was just a bunch of letters.

I remember everything was all white, white like copypaper white, and some words would spell out out of no where, and the ink would bleed from the letters...EW... into my white paper mind...or something. I wasn't even typing them myself. I had no hands, feet, or body. It was like my brain was the computer monitor, and someone in cyber-dreamspace must have been typing from a remote location, because it wasn't me! Help. Oh, and I've been up all night again. Afraid of the big white blankness of my mind, with little bitty, black bleeding words blotting about...ugh! Oh, I think the words were in German, and sometimes Italian, all mixed together... and bleeding... making no sense! :( help - Jeeny (talk) 00:48, 4 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • This is a transcript from my latest visit to Wikiholics anonymous...
    • Me: Hello, my name is Cflm, and I'm a Wikiholic.
    • Everyone: Hi Cflm.
    • Me: I've been clean for over 1 day, but I'll never forget my first edit. I was young, wild and crazy, I had just spotted a vandal on the Franz Krommer article. Everybody else was doing it, so I though "just one... one little revert won't hurt". Oh how wrong, how stupid was I. That one little revert later turned into 2, then 3, then 10, then 100. I wanted something new, so I tried a little bit of Twinkle. That gave me a kick to keep going. 200, 400, 700, the edits kept coming. "I need more, more!", so I went to the most vile place in Wikipedia, the distributors. There was so much pressure, from society, the media, myself. "C'mon Cflm, do it!" the Wikidevil temped me. "Request some rollbacks, then you can use my minion's most evil creation, Huggle!" From then on, I was posessed, spending most of my Wikitime on HG allowed my edits to get out of control, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000. I feel much better now, allowing myself to open up with other Wikiholics is very comforting, thank you everybody, and goodnight! Cflm001 (Talk) 06:18, 1 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Help, I have a serious case of Wikipediholisim. I joined on 21 October 2008 and today, on 17 November 2008, I scored 12,197. Another editor who is a friend of mine who has been on Wikipedia much longer than me only scored 12,500!! Help!! TopGearFreak Talk 19:24, 17 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • My name is Rocky. I'm a Wikiholic. I began here in August, just tinkering around. Now I find myself at 3:39 in the morning, this day, still tinkering..I haven't been off of this thing since 1 this afternoon. I feel sick, my eyes hurt, this Ergonomic chair no longer helps, and I am at my wit's end. It's too much to take. No one is on any other social networking site like I am on Wiki. I love Wiki. It's almost like Wiki is my wife. This of course isn't true, partly because I don't date. I don't date because I want to stay faithful to my Wiki. My life is a downward spiral without you Wiki. I can only hope a few days here will give me some time to think about all I have accomplished in my life and be glad that I still have air. FAREWELL ( for at least 3 hours so I can sleep).

  • Hi. I have begun to search for Wikipedia tabs on other web pages, and looked for the {{cite}} button when I had to write a research paper. Also my friends and family are beginning to worry, because I always have something to say, something to Do which is related to the wiki. I cannot stay off for a day, and my watchlist is always in a tab. WHAT CAN I DO!?! Oh hey, someone wrote something on her talk page... HELP!

  • For those in Wikipain, I have come forth according to prophecy #12 of The _12_steps_of_recovery_for_Wikipediholics to let you know that there is hope! I checked in here in 2004, sometime around when I was #219 on the most-edits list. I managed to drop off the face of the Wiki, down to #3806, and can now pull myself away from even a Template:Multiple issues. I have a normal life. I don't feel compelled to edit every page I read. Just... a few. .... Now and then. .... Yes. (Won't mention that, to do this post, I edited Wikipedia:Wikipediholic and looked up articles and templates for linking. Hasn't taken me more than a few minutes. Several minutes. OK, half an hour. But, really, you of little faith can check my list of contributions to confirm that I edit infrequently and mildly. Really. BTW, now I'm at #3853, but who's counting?) But, seriously, there is hope. Signed, Tutnum of the Encylopedia, Elf | Talk 18:55, 23 September 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
